Sometimes you just need to start from scratch. This parking lot was removed and replaced with 2 coats of hot mix asphalt - a base coat of Hl8 and a top coat of Hl3. The newly established line painting helps to promote efficient traffic flow while maximizing use for the tenants and customers.

This entire loading dock depends on two central catch basins for stormwater management (see pylons in image for reference). Once we removed the broken asphalt, we spent a full day regrading the backlot to ensure proper water drainage.

A water main ruptured underground this Toronto community causing the roadway to be shutdown until the pipe was fixed. Once the project was handed over to us, we made quick work of this total road restoration (concrete curbs + asphalt replacement) so that the community could get back to normal as soon as possible.

Unlike concrete, asphalt will bend before it breaks. This makes asphalt the go-to material for outdoor sporting courts. Projects like these demand a level surface finish while maintaining just enough slope for proper water drainage.

Parking Lot Asphalt Resurfacing in Richmond Hill

June 11, 20242 min read

Recently, a dermatologist office in Richmond Hill was in dire need of asphalt repairs. Cracked asphalt and ruts in the sub base made the driving experience a nightmare for both employees and patients. We ultimately decided to install a resurface of the base layer on a Saturday morning as it would suit both their aesthetic and practical needs.

Firstly, here's why we worked on a Saturday

The dermatologist office's parking lot is always busy during the week. So, to avoid disrupting their operations and inconveniencing their patients, we chose to complete the project on a Saturday. This way, we could work efficiently without any interruptions and provide the asphalt some time to settle before they open back up on Monday.

Now let's get into it-

Step-by-Step Parking Lot Resurfacing

1. Milling Down High Points:

We started by milling down the high points of the old asphalt. This process involves grinding down the uneven surfaces to create a smooth base for the new asphalt layer and also creates space for the new asphalt to meet flush with existing infrastructure like curbs or catch basins.

2. Applying Asphalt Glue:

Next, we applied a layer of asphalt glue to the old asphalt. This glue, also known as a tack coat, helps the new asphalt bond to the existing surface. It ensures that the new layer adheres properly, enhancing the durability of the parking lot.

3. Levelling Off Ruts:

We then addressed any ruts in the existing asphalt. Ruts are depressions or grooves that can form over time due to heavy traffic. We used a skim coat of asphalt to fill and level these areas, creating an even surface.

4. Fresh Layer of HL3 Asphalt:

After levelling off the ruts, we applied a fresh layer of HL3 asphalt over the entire parking lot. HL3 asphalt is a high-quality mix designed for smoothness and durability, perfect for parking lots. This new layer provided a sleek, smooth finish, enhancing both the appearance and functionality of the parking lot.

5. Final Touches for a Smooth Finish

With the new asphalt in place, the final step was reinstating the line painting. We repainted the parking lines the same evening, ensuring clear and organized parking spaces for the dermatologist's patients. Proper line painting is crucial for safety, accessibility and maximizing the available space.

Also, would you just look at that water drainage 😍

Asphalt is the most commonly used material for driveways, roads and parking lots; and there is a good reason for that. It is resistant to water, heat and cold, making it very durable. The most common failure mechanism is fatigue from repeated loading over time, however, if the asphalt is applied properly, it can last a long time without giving you any trouble or headaches. When it comes to industrial or commercial paving, the proper application of asphalt determines how durable and long-lasting it will be. One of the biggest mistakes when applying asphalt is not preparing the surface properly. This includes removing the old asphalt, grading, compacting the soil and applying the crushed rock and subsoil.

Your parking lot should be sturdy enough to be resistant to heat, cold and moisture. If you notice cracks and pots holes in your parking lot, you should consider installing a new lot. We prefer asphalt as it is easier to maintain and repair. A parking lot with regular maintenance and resurfacing can look as gorgeous as it did on the first day. We can help you with parking lot paving and maintenance. To know more about our services, give us a call.


A well-maintained parking lot goes a long way, considering the parking lot is a visitor’s first impression of the place. Here are some tips to keep your parking lot good as new:

-​Routine inspections:

-Fill the cracks, clear the chemical deposit and clean the entire area.

-Sweep it often: Do not let water or moisture stay on asphalt for too long. It weakens the surface.Inspect drains: A water logging problem can become huge in moments.

-Always clear clogged drains.Clear oil and chemicals: Oil and chemicals deteriorate the material that holds asphalt together. Clear it soon as you see it.
