If you’re searching for an asphalt paving service to help pave your commercial or municipal property, you may be wondering, “what steps are involved?” or “what should I know ahead of time?”
These are great questions.
To help you build a paved surface that properly holds the load, HMA Paving & Contracting has developed a three-step system. In this article, we’ll discuss the first step to asphalt paving and why it’s necessary.
Let’s get started.
Step 100 to Your Asphalt Paving Project
Not every project is alike.
That’s why it’s crucial that our experts come in to assess the needs and demands of your project. There are many things that commercial and municipality property owners may not be aware of.
This is where the inspection stage comes into play.
Asphalt Paving Inspection
It’s key that our crew comes to inspect the existing surface and see how we can solve key problems. We’ll also take the time to educate you on anything that we see. This way you feel fully informed throughout this preliminary process.
This process within step one allows us to fully determine the best way to execute your project. Plus, because we’re performing a service, we’ll need to ensure that we’re actively following all state guidelines.
In the end, knowing what we’re dealing with upfront will provide you with a safe and efficient outcome.
Asphalt Coring of Existing Pavement
During the inspection, we’ll conduct coring the asphalt pavement. This simply means we’ll be using standard tests and measurements to determine field density or other properties of the asphalt.
This allows us to understand how thick the asphalt layer needs to be to carry the weight of the predicted amount of traffic.
This procedure is extremely important because it ensures that we get the right thickness, which will prevent depressions where traffic is frequent and can lead to costly asphalt paving repairs over time.
