Asphalt Paving Rockdale, TX
In the past few years alone there have been hundreds of notable uses of asphalt in Rockdale, for everything from highways and roads through to driveways and sports arenas. Asphalt paving is incredibly versatile. It can last for years, making it a fantastic choice for those on a tight budget.
When you create a surface, two factors are most important. It should be smooth, and it should have plenty of traction. Both of these factors help to increase the safety of surface, ensuring that even vehicles that are going faster than they should, can maintain contact with the road.
For surfaces that are not as regularly maintained as a highway or main road, this is particularly important because cracks might appear or there could be debris on the surface.
What is the Cost of Asphalt Paving Rockdale, TX?
Asphalt paving is known to be one of the cheapest methods of building a hard outdoor surface because the cost of materials is low and modern technology allows us to lay them quickly. The price that you will pay is highly correlated to the amount of square footage that you are trying to cover.
For larger projects, there are also other potential costs to consider like extra workers to ensure that the process is completed in a timely fashion. On the other hand, you might find that for a small surface like a driveway it can be incredibly simple to finish.
Installing New Driveways in Rockdale Texas
New driveways are some of the most common asphalt related projects. Most houses have them, and because of this, there is always constant work. We handle creating new driveways as well as replacing existing ones with a fresh asphalt paved upper layer.
When subdivisions and new houses are being built, we can work directly with the homeowner or the construction team to create a new driveway as quickly as possible. The first step is to ensure that the slope is accurate, which will involve measuring it and making any necessary adjustments.
Once our team is happy with the gradient of the land, we will begin to pour gravel on to create a compacted base layer which we can set an asphalt pavement on. This base layer is vital and arguably the most critical part of the process, so it’s critical that it’s well compressed so that it doesn’t move once the asphalt is set.
Using special machinery, we can pour a fresh sheet of asphalt onto the gravel surface, giving you the hard, jet-black surface that you want for your driveway.
Tennis, Basketball and Multi-Purpose Sports Courts
Across the state of Texas, there are thousands of different outdoors sports courts which the local population can use either for free or for a small charge. These courts encourage people to get outside and enjoy a sport rather than sitting at home and watching television.
Due to the courts being outdoors they need to be created using a material that is resistant to the hard weather conditions. Although Texas gets very little rain or cold weather when compared to other states, the extreme heat can be brutal on the ground.
Asphalt is designed to ‘flex’ a little bit, preventing it from cracking when the weather changes quickly from hot to cold. The same can’t be said for alternative materials which are less resistant to temperature changes.
When people are playing ball games, it’s vital that the surface is clean of debris and as smooth as possible. This month surface allows the ball to bounce cleanly, ensuring that the players can play the game properly without the ground ruining the experience.
Many professional tennis games are still played on asphalt across the world because they recognize that this surface combines grip and smoothness in the perfect balance. It ensures that the ball travels quickly without skipping too much, while still providing plenty of grip for the player’s shoes so that they don’t slip and injure themselves.
Church Parking Lots with Asphalt Paving Rockdale, TX
For the average Church, the busiest day is likely to be on Sunday when hundreds, if not thousands of people can turn up in cars to visit. All of those visitors need somewhere to park and building such a large parking lot can be expensive if you’re not using asphalt.
Asphalt paving is far and away the cheapest method of pavement construction, especially as you scale and consider incredibly large lots. The cost of materials is low, and this helps to drive down the price so that the savings can be passed on to you.
Even though asphalt paving is incredibly resilient, it will eventually wear down and need to be repaired. If a repair takes too long it can disrupt the Church, making it difficult for people to park their cars, walk or push wheelchairs along the ground. Therefore, asphalt preventative maintenance (INTERLINK) is crucial to ensuring the ground is always safe and usable.
For this reason, it’s vital that issues can be fixed as cheaply and quickly as possible with minimal disturbance to your congregation. Asphalt is inexpensive, ideal for Churches which often have a tight budget when compared to commercial and municipal parking lots.
Filling Cracks and Potholes
When a crack does form, it’s important that you repair it as quickly as possible so that you can reduce the chance of it spreading or allowing for further issues. Water can leak in through these cracks, and that water can further exacerbate any problems.
Cracks tend to spread because they reduce the stability and strength of the pavement at the edge of the break, meaning that even the slightest movement can cause damage.
To fix these cracks, we use two different techniques; crack filling and crack sealing. A filling is intuitive; we pump fresh asphalt into the break using a brush or squeegee, ensuring that it gets deep into the crevice. Once this sets, it will form a layer over the surface, preventing water from entering and the crack from spreading.
By sealing a more significant segment of the surface is removed and replaced with fresh asphalt in a square, a stronger pattern than just following an existing crack. Sealing is a better long term strategy because it lasts on average for 2-3 years longer than a filling.
