What are you looking for?

While regular maintenance and repairs can do a lot to lengthen the lifespan of any stretch of asphalt, enough time and consistent use will wear down any type of pavement—and short-term fixes can only last for so long. As you may already be learning, the process of completely replacing old asphalt—or putting down new pavement in a new location—is complicated. Even minor errors can cost you a lot of money and lead to you needing another replacement done much sooner than you should.

New asphalt installation in Austin is not a job you want to trust to just anybody, no matter how big that job is or where it needs to be done. Fortunately, you have help available from experienced paving professionals who know how to handle this type of work efficiently, accurately, and with the kind of transparency you won’t get from just any contractor or company.

Preparing the Ground for New Asphalt Installation

If new asphalt is going to be installed as a replacement for old asphalt or any other type of pavement, the first step in the installation process is tearing up the old material and removing the debris. Once the space is clear, it has to be graded so that water can properly drain away from it without causing structural damage to the asphalt foundation in the years to come.

The foundation of new asphalt installation in Austin—often called the “subbase”—consists of crushed-up aggregate material other than traditional asphalt. Depending on the type of pavement being installed, its location, and your expectations for its use, this foundation can be built from sand, gravel, or even stone.

What Does the Asphalt Installation Process Look Like?

Once the subbase layer is set down and packed in so it will retain its structural integrity, it’s not quite time to start pouring asphalt yet. First comes a “binder layer” made of aggregate material that’s typically smaller in diameter than the subbase material underneath it but larger than the asphalt material that will go overtop of it—for example, slag or recycled concrete.

At this point, the asphalt—typically a mixture of oil with fine material like sand—is ready to be laid out on top of both lower layers. The final step is to ensure that the edges of the new asphalt installation where the pavement runs into other pavement are sealed and sloped properly to ensure water runs off the new surface as it should.
