Asphalt Paving Installation

We follow a seamless process recognized by and complies with the high standards of the industry. Our crew can carry out all types of asphalt installation projects, big or small, in both residential and commercial settings.

The process we follow in all our asphalt paving projects includes the following steps:

1. Planning the Project

To make sure that your asphalt paving will last for as long as it should, we lay out a carefully thought-out plan that is a customized solution to your needs. We set up every asphalt installation project for success.

Our engineers and crew will take the time to listen to you and assess the condition of the area and surface that needs asphalt installation. We are experienced in fulfilling requirements for construction projects such as these so we make sure that all required paperwork will be accomplished.

2.  Preparation, Demolition, and Removal of Old Pavement

When you have an existing pavement that needs to be replaced with asphalt, the most important step we do before proceeding to the installation itself is to properly and safely demolish and remove your existing pavement.

Asphalt Installation Service in New Orleans By Big Easy AsphaltWhatever the material of your existing pavement, we can completely strip off the old material so that we have a clean slate where we can install a new asphalt pavement.

We have the right tools and state-of-the-art equipment to complete the demolition and removal of your old pavement. Our crew will make sure that the surface or area where new asphalt pavement will be installed is ready and completely clean.

If it’s a new asphalt pavement installation, we will completely clear it to make the surface clean, compact, and stable.

3.  Grading and Sloping for Proper Drainage

The key steps in a successful asphalt pavement installation are grading and sloping. We use the latest grade and slope technology to achieve superior paving results.

Our expert paving contractors maintain precise mat thickness and cross slope paving operations so that your asphalt paving will have:

  • Improved grade and slope accuracy
  • Increased productivity
  • Assistance with smooth transitions
  • Improved mat thickness and yield control
  • Decreased costs related to grade and slope re-work
  • Improved drainage

Your asphalt pavement will function at its optimum because of appropriate water drainage. The premature collapse will be prevented and water will run off to the sides to prevent major damage on your asphalt pavement like cracks, crumbling, and potholes.

4.  Preparing the Sub-base

We provide a solid sub-base, a stable foundation that will provide the main support to your asphalt pavement.  Careful preparation is done to make sure that the sub-base and your asphalt pavement will not erode even in harsh weather conditions.

The activities we accomplish for a successful subbase preparation include:

  • Stabilization
  • Over-excavation of poor subgrade
  • Applying a prime coat
  • Compacting the subgrade
  • Adding a subbase course for additional load-bearing capacity

5.  Repair or Laying Asphalt Sub-base

Asphalt-Installation-in-New-Orleans-By-Big-Easy-AsphaltAfter carefully preparing the sub-base, repairs will be done if needed and the asphalt sub-base will be laid. Our team of service professionals will make sure that your sub-base will be able to support the new asphalt pavement without eroding.

We conduct a test called a ‘proof roll’ to make sure the asphalt base is going to work well.

6.  Adding Binder Layer

We then apply a thin layer of binding material to glue the sub-base layer to the asphalt pavement surface.  The binder layer we install for asphalt pavements consists of large aggregate and oil to make it durable for any new asphalt surface.

7. Install New Asphalt

Every new asphalt pavement we install will provide you with a clean, smooth ride. We use high-quality small aggregate, sand, and oil for a shiny and attractive surface asphalt finish.

8. Connect Old Surfaces to New Ones

We make sure that we smoothen the transition of the new asphalt pavement from the old one and use butt joints that are unnoticeable to connect old surfaces of asphalt or concrete to the new asphalt pavement.

Asphalt Driveway Vs Concrete Driveway

Using the right material for your driveway paving is essential in ensuring that you achieve both durability and aesthetics. Concrete and asphalt driveways are similar and different in many ways.

Both have a gravel base and are made with stone and sand. The only difference between these two pavement materials is their adhesive materials. Asphalt uses petroleum-based adhesion and concrete uses cement.

The work Big Easy Asphalt did for me was quick and efficient. They put down a nice layer of asphalt so my dad’s tractors have more space, which means he can store things inside without worrying about them being covered by dirt or grasses! The guy who did the job kept me updated throughout every step in order to make sure everything went smoothly. Highly recommended!
