Once an area, such as a parking lot or road, has been graded, leveled, and laid with gravel, the area is then ready for pavement. Pavement is made of liquid binder, mineral limestone, and sand aggregate mix that is then laid down in a single layer or multiple layers and compacted. Most asphalt contains a percentage of recycled asphalt that is then fortified and ready for use in a brand new site. We can also apply a bonding agent and resurface your existing asphalt, bonding the old to the new. Wingham Paving has a fantastic, professional crew who specializes in asphalt laying and our reputation for outstanding work has long been a standard.
Not only does seal coating extend the life of your pavement; it also creates a sleek and clean look that is visually appealing. It also offers protection from the harsh weather elements, damaging effects of petroleum and crude oil products to your blacktop, and provides a water-resisting layer of protection for your asphalt.
Crack filling is used to seal and protect existing cracks in asphalt from expanding and becoming larger. The filling is made of melted hot rubber, which prevents water from leaking into the base of the asphalt and prevents future problems like crack enlargement. Further benefits are improvement in ride smoothness, slower deterioration of asphalt, and damage prevention caused by water expansion from freezing and thawing. Keeping up with pavement maintenance and the use of crack filling can expand the life and quality of your parking lot or roadway.
Striping services finish out a parking lot or recreational area and include things like handicap, fire lane, and curb painting. This also allows for maximized parking, organization of available space, control of traffic flow, signage and bumper stops, and definition of an outdoor recreational lot for anything from tennis to basketball courts.
Patch repair can be as simple as filling in potholes and as extensive as total asphalt removal and base failure correction with new asphalt. It is beneficial in correcting existing water retaining and/or ponding areas on a road or parking lot. We will perform an evaluation of the source of the problem and then choose to simply cover existing asphalt with new asphalt or mill/cut out the problem area and correct any base structural issues.
Once a driveway has been graded, leveled, and laid with gravel, the area is then ready for pavement. We can also apply a bonding agent and resurface your existing asphalt, bonding the old to the new.
Applying sealer to a driveway extends the life of the asphalt, protects against harsh weather, and provides a water-resisting layer of protection. If needed, crack filler will be applied before sealing to prevent further crack expansion and water damage to the asphalt.
