Asphalt Overlay

Asphalt Overlays are an important part of a comprehensive maintenance plan for asphalt roads and parking lots. Because asphalt can be installed in a relatively short timeframe by LDC Paving, choosing to overlay your parking lot or residential community doesn’t have to mean shutting down for the day. We can help figure out a plan that works with your schedule. Once the asphalt paving is complete, it is only a matter of hours (depending on the temperature) before it can be reopened for traffic.

Asphalt Overlays – How Does It Work?

When you have your asphalt pavement resurfaced, your contractor will apply an additional layer of asphalt over your existing pavement, eliminating all or most of the need to remove existing asphalt. He will first repair any cracks or potholes to prevent the damaged areas from showing through on the new pavement. If the foundation supporting the pavement is in relatively stable condition and the pavement has major damage on less than 30 percent of its surface, it may be a good candidate for resurfacing.

History of Asphalt Paving

The history of asphalt pavement goes back at least 2,500 years. In more recent times, engineers began building asphalt roads during the 1700s in Europe and the 1800s in the United States. Asphalt pavement has proven itself to be a durable, attractive and economical option for highways, driveways and parking lots. In addition to its many other advantages, asphalt pavement is an environmentally friendly product. Every crumb of asphalt pavement can be recycled to make more asphalt. To make it even more environmentally green, however, manufacturers have developed a new type of asphalt pavement that offers additional benefits to the environment. It is called porous asphalt.
