Commercial Asphalt Paving

Commercial Asphalt PavingWhile most of us do not actively take notice of the surface that we walk and drive on, we soon notice if it is in bad condition or looks awful. It is an integral part of your business premises. If cars are damaged by potholes or poorly laid asphalt surfaces, or your customer stumbles over an uneven surface and injures themselves - well, it is not going to reflect too well on your business. 

That is why when it comes to commercial asphalt paving services, whether that is the initial laying, resealing or filling in cracks and potholes, you need to make sure you have the very best on the job. 

Variables to consider when it comes to commercial asphalt paving

The time of year

The weather plays a key role in deciding when the best time is to finish your commercial asphalt paving project. Certain weather conditions are needed for the installation of a seamless pavement or driveway. Poor weather and temperatures can have an effect on the efficiency of your finished project, and the last thing that anyone wants is a substandard finish. Our team will know exactly what to do in adverse conditions and how and when to proceed.

Our experienced team can also decide which day is better for your asphalt paving project and which day will have the best temperature for paving. Asphalt paving is not possible during the winter once the frost line develops.

If we pour hot asphalt onto frozen ground, it will harden almost instantly, preventing proper compaction. Furthermore, once the frost-line thaws, your asphalt will have an uneven surface.

On-site inspections

You will want to make sure that everything is done to the highest possible standards - after all, it is your business reputation that could be affected - we will arrange an on-site inspection prior to the work being carried out so that we can make sure that we can see the scale of the project and gain an idea of your individual needs and requirements. It also gives you a chance to ask our project estimators any questions that you have.

Are the best materials and equipment being used to carry out your commercial asphalt paving project?

The difference between a substandard commercial asphalt paving project and one that lasts decades and looks great is not just the skill in which it is laid, but the material used. You might think that asphalt is just asphalt, but here at Black Tar, we ensure that we only use the very highest grade asphalt. 

We carry this school of thinking over to the equipment that we use. Our equipment is amongst the newest in terms of technology, making sure that it provides the best finish in the quickest time so that you can get back on with running your business. For example, our paving machines have an electric and vibratory screed, meaning that our paving machine keeps the asphalt hot and compacts it as it is laid. Compaction and heat are essential to the longevity of asphalt. 

Do you have adequate drainage systems in place for your asphalt paving job?

When it comes to providing a great commercial asphalt paving service, any contractor worth their weight will make sure that you have adequate drainage systems in place before laying down any asphalt, which is exactly what we do at Black Tar.

Your commercial pavement, parking lot or private road will last longer if you have good drainage; it really is as simple as that.  Poor drainage causes a whole slew of issues, including road safety, flooding, shorter pavement life, and higher maintenance costs. Additionally, stormwater runoff pollutes urban rivers, resulting in increased pollution problems and emissions. When water remains on a surface for an extended period of time, it creates problems such as cracks, potholes, and so on. 

At Black Tar, we offer a range of commercial asphalt paving services, including the installation of asphalt driveways, parking lots, roads and more. We also repair and fill potholes and cracks to a high standard, leaving it in such a way that you would never guess it had been repaired.
