The pavement is a superficial surface covering for outdoor floors. Some popular paving materials include concrete, asphalt, bricks, tiles, and stones like cobblestone or setts. Of these paving materials, Asphalt and concrete remain the most popular material of choice for paving surfaces in the New Orleans area. Our specialty is in delivering top quality and durable asphalt and concrete paving services for residential and commercial properties. Both pavement types are known to be quite durable, require minimal maintenance, and are relatively cheap to install. You will find Asphalt and concrete pavements on streets, highways, airports, and roads everywhere.
Concrete’s ability to carry tons of weight and still maintain its structural integrity for several years makes it a top choice for paving projects. Concrete is made from a mixture of aggregate stone, cement, and water and it is one of the most-used pavement materials in the world. It is also recyclable and can be reused in making new pavements.
Our concrete paving services and process
We offer quality concrete paving services for roads, highways, and streets. Concrete pavements have been in use for years for connecting rural and urban areas. We are a leading provider of concrete paving services for streets, roads, and highways in New Orleans. We follow industry-standard processes and use state of the art equipment for our concrete paving projects. Projects start with preparing the ground for paving by grading and compacting the native soil on which the pavement will be built. This is then followed by the placement of the sub-base material. Reinforcing steel and tiebars will also be placed and aligned to further strengthen the pavement. Finally, the concrete itself is placed using a slip-form paving process of fixed-form paving.
Asphalt is considered the most sustainable and cost-effective material for constructing pavements. Perhaps the best thing about asphalt pavement is how easy it is to construct and repair in case of damage. Asphalt is also a durable material that guarantees years of use with proper maintenance. It is also considered a safe material for road construction as it provides superior contact that reduces the risk of crashes.
Asphalt paving process
Asphalt is a very flexible paving material. The asphalt paving process begins with the removal of the existing surface using heavy machinery where needed. If there is no existing surface, the process proceeds directly to the sloping and grading stage. This process is critical as it ensures that water runs off the right way from the asphalt surface. The next stage involves laying the sub-base which serves as a stable surface and frost barrier for the new pavement to be constructed. Once the sub-base has been laid and compacted, a layer of binder will be added before the new asphalt surface is finally installed. To ensure a smooth transition to existing roads, our asphalt contractors also work to smoothing the butt joints where the new paving connects with the old one.
