The Asphalt & Concrete Installation Process:
Regardless of the finished pavement, the first few steps of a paving job are nearly always the same:
Professional Asphalt Paving
Depending on the type of pavement installed, the next steps will differ slightly for an asphalt installation:
Professional Concrete Paving
We also provide concrete – or cement – paving for property management companies and HOAs.
Concrete is a beautiful alternative to asphalt for residential driveways and sidewalks, and a necessity for commercial and residential garages, basement flooring, patios, and build sites.
The beauty of concrete is its versatility. Concrete is made up of much smaller particulate matter than that found in asphalt, allowing it to be dyed, stained, stamped, and molded to give it a distinct design. It can even be finished to resemble other materials such as wood or stone.
Much like the process followed for installing asphalt, a quality concrete installation first requires a thorough site examination and meticulous sub-grade preparation, which in the case of a new installation or a complete replacement, may require demolition, land clearing, grading, and compaction. Concrete is poured on the prepared sub-grade, leveled, and then, because of its inflexibility in comparison to asphalt, it is scored before curing to help prevent cracks. For unique finishes, dyes may be added to the concrete before pouring, or cured concrete may be stained and sealed. The possibilities are many with concrete paving, allowing for both form and function.
Curb Installation & Repair
You’ve heard that curb appeal is crucial, but you may have thought of it in terms of landscaping or presentation. We believe that the curb itself is crucial. A curb is a raised cement barrier that serves to separate two areas, particularly those parallel to a roadway; curbs are also used as barriers in parking lots and even as landscaping elements. They are useful for a number of reasons. Creating a tidy presentation for the edge of your property, directing water to storm inlets, keeping vegetation within defined parameters, adding strength to the edge of a pavement, transitioning from sidewalks to ramps or streets, and defining the edge of a sidewalk are just some of the ways curbs function, proving that a well-maintained curb is, indeed, crucial.
The variety of jobs a curb is responsible for makes it especially prone to damage. Curbs are made of high-strength cement, which means they support great weights and hold up well, but their rigidity may cause them to crack or crumble under intense or sustained pressure. You may find that your curb has chipped or crumbled from contact with mowers and scrapers, been damaged from collisions and de-icing agents, or even cracked and moved by shifting earth, weather, and pressure from heavyweights such as large vehicles.
Whether you need a preexisting curb repaired or you’re looking to install brand new curbing, we’ve got you covered. Our experts are skilled in all types of curb installation, repair, and even painting. For both residential and commercial jobs, our curbs are crafted with an eye for craftsmanship. We use only quality concrete, build to your specifications, and use top of the line fade-resistant paint. Curbs come in many different shapes, and we are happy to accommodate your requests, whether you need a curb with an integral gutter for a roadway or an attractive edging for your landscape.
We can provide functional curbs that will add an attractive finish to your property, no matter the type. We have equipment designed to handle any curbing task, from forms to slip cast extrusion machines. We will mix the concrete for your curb dependent on your needs, and complete the task to your specifications. Once the curb is laid, rough edges will be finished by hand, and scores will be cut at predetermined lengths to help prevent future cracking. Curbs may be customized, as well: those which serve decorative purposes can be colored with an added dye and stamped or stained after installation to resemble brick or stone, while curbs for safety purposes may be painted in reflective colors such as yellow or white, enhancing their visibility.
You’ll find that the curb installation process is not as lengthy as the paving process, as curbing is typically installed at the edge of a pre existing paved surface, requires little foundational prep, and uses a concrete mixture which hardens much more quickly than that used for paving. Our services are available throughout Washington DC, Baltimore, Frederick, Hagerstown, Annapolis, Silver Spring, Gaithersburg, and in other surrounding areas.
More about Asphalt & Concrete Paving:
Paving jobs include surfacing driveways, parking lots, build sites, sidewalks, patios, and more. When approaching a paving job, there are many factors that need to be addressed:
When you realize the amount of planning and work that goes into a paving job, the importance of choosing a quality contractor with the experience and integrity to back up their claims becomes clear. Cutting corners is never okay when it comes to paving, as a subpar job could not only result in unsightly cracks and dips, but also prove unsafe, damaging, and expensive, resulting in water pooling, erosion, structural compromise, and property damage. These issues will ultimately lead to intensive repairs and potentially call for repaving.
Why take a risk? Choose quality craftsmanship the first time around and avoid the costs of damage and repairs.
We are fully equipped to offer any service you need related to paving, from assessments of your property to determine potential drainage or support problems, to site preparation, to repairs on an existing structure.
