The smooth and safe operation of your commercial property is vital to the success of your business. Accessibility is key for your customers, suppliers, and employees, and any hindrance to it can lead to disruptions in your operations. As such, maintaining your asphalt surfaces through timely repairs and maintenance is crucial.

At Pavemar, we understand the importance of commercial asphalt repair and offer exceptional services to our clients. Our experienced contractors ensure that your asphalt surfaces are always in top condition to facilitate smooth traffic flow.

During your first commercial asphalt repair with us, you can expect our team to conduct a thorough assessment of the damage and provide a comprehensive plan to restore your surfaces to their optimal condition. Here's exactly what you can expect during your first commercial asphalt repair.

Types of Commercial Asphalt Repair

Asphalt repair can take many forms, each of which has its own level of disruption. For minor wear and tear, patching is often sufficient. Patching involves filling potholes and other small areas of localized damage. This is typically a quick and easy process that can be completed without disrupting the entire surface of the driveway or parking lot.

However, for more significant damage, more extensive repairs may be necessary. This could include resurfacing or milling the affected area. Resurfacing involves applying a new layer of asphalt over the existing surface, which can restore the appearance and integrity of the pavement. Milling, on the other hand, involves removing a layer of the existing asphalt before applying a new layer.

These types of repairs can be more disruptive, as they require work to be done on the entire surface of the driveway or parking lot. As a result, the area may be unusable during repairs, and alternative arrangements may need to be made for parking and traffic.

Equipment and Materials Used

If you want a sense of what kind of disruption to prepare for, here's a rundown of the most common equipment we use during commercial asphalt repair:

  • Asphalt paving machines.

  • Asphalt rollers.

  • Infrared heaters.

  • Asphalt emulsion.

  • Milling machines.

  • Traffic cones and signs.

  • Emulsions.

The equipment we use for commercial asphalt repair varies depending on the size and scope of the project. For smaller repairs, such as patching or filling in cracks, we may use handheld tools such as asphalt lutes and tampers.

However, for more significant repairs, we may need to bring in larger, heavier machinery such as excavators, rollers, and paving machines. These machines can be quite loud, so we take care to minimize disruptions to your business operations as much as possible.

Regardless of the size of the repair, we always use the latest technology and equipment to ensure the highest quality results for our clients.

Timeframe for Completion

Repairing commercial asphalt surfaces can take anywhere from a few hours to several days, depending on the extent of the damage, weather conditions, and the specific repair method required.

In general, resurfacing or milling typically takes one or two days to complete, while filling in cracks or utilizing infrared repair can be completed within a few hours. However, in rare cases, repairs may take longer due to unforeseen circumstances.

At Pavemar, we make it a priority to provide you with a reliable time estimate before beginning any work, ensuring that your business operations can continue with minimal disruptions.
