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.
Most asphalt surfaces are laid on a gravel base, which is usually at least as thick as the asphalt itself. The other option is a full-depth asphalt surface, which is laid directly onto the subgrade. Depending on the subgrade, a layer of gravel might be added in order to stabilize the surface.
Asphalt is often applied at different temperatures, depending on the type of commercial paving in the Toronto area. Hot mix asphalt is applied with a free-floating screed at temperatures that exceed 150 degrees celsius.
Large projects such as industrial parking lots take time, but they can be completed quickly if properly coordinated. At Pavemar Paving, we have the tools, resources and knowledge necessary to take on projects of any scale.

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.
