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.

Concrete + Asphalt Road Repair in Toronto

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.

Winter Warriors: Protecting Your Asphalt from Cold Weather Damage

February 13, 20243 min read

If you live in the GTA and own a home or business with an asphalt parking surface, you understand the importance of year-round pavement maintenance in Toronto.

As the harsh weather rolls in, the drop in temperature can be tough on asphalt surfaces like driveways and parking areas. Knowing how to prepare can keep your pavement in great shape.

Here are some essential steps to shield your asphalt from the cold weather's harsh effects. From preventative measures to ongoing care, we've got you covered.

Prepare Before the Cold Hits

Getting your pavement ready before winter is essential. Look over your parking lot for any cracks or damage. Fixing these issues early can stop water from getting in. Pooling water can cause more significant damage during the freeze-thaw cycle.

Use a high-quality sealant for extra protection against moisture and the cold. Sealcoating protects against moisture, UV rays, and harmful substances, making your asphalt more durable.

If it's been a while since the last inspection, it's worth having a professional take a look. They can spot potential problems you might miss and recommend the best course of action. 

Keep It Clean

Leaving debris like leaves and twigs on your asphalt doesn't just look messy, it can actually damage your pavement. These materials hold moisture, leading to dampness and deterioration. Regularly sweeping and cleaning your pavement keeps it free from these damaging elements.

Moreover, a clean asphalt surface is safer to walk and drive on, reducing the risk of slips and vehicle damage during cold spells. Make a habit of checking for and removing debris, especially after storms or windy days, to keep your pavement in good condition.

Ensure Good Drainage

Water is a major problem for asphalt, especially with the freeze-thaw cycle in winter. Make sure your pavement has good drainage to avoid standing water. A good drainage system helps keep water away from your pavement, protecting it from damage.

Improving drainage might involve clearing out gutters and drains near your pavement or even adjusting the landscape to ensure water flows away from the asphalt. 

Fix Damage Promptly

Even with all these precautions, your pavement might still get damaged. Fixing potholes and cracks quickly stops them from getting bigger. Fast repairs keep your pavement strong and can save you money by avoiding more extensive repairs later.

It's also important to choose the right materials and methods for repairs, depending on the damage and the type of asphalt you have. Sometimes, a simple patch might be enough, but other times, more comprehensive work may be needed. Regular checks can help you catch and fix problems early.

Pavement Maintenance Made Simple 

Keeping your pavement safe from winter damage takes a bit of effort, but it's well worth it in the long run. By following these pavement maintenance steps, you can help ensure your asphalt stays in good condition, no matter the weather. Remember, a little care now can prevent big headaches in the future.

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.
