Utilized in a variety of applications, asphalt is a cost-effective surface for roads, parking lots, and driveways. HSC provides quality asphalt paving at great prices.
There are several factors that influence the lifespan and quality of new asphalt: compaction of the sub-base, depth of pavement, and quality of pavement joints. A quality sub-base should be well compacted, and comprised of appropriate materials for the specific application. For commercial applications, we recommend 3-6 inches of asphalt. When asphalt becomes severely damaged or beyond repair with general patching, resurfacing is the most cost-effective way to repair an entire area of pavement. Resurfacing, which is commonly referred to as an overlay can be accomplished in several ways. The simplest procedure is to pave new asphalt directly on top of the damaged asphalt. While, this is the cheapest option, it does have one key drawback: reflective cracking.
