What is asphalt paving?
Asphalt paving, sometimes referred to as blacktop, is a reliable ground coating that is often used for parking lots, driveways, highways, and even airport runways. It has both commercial and residential applications.
How hot is asphalt when paving?
Asphalt must be between 220 and 290 degrees Fahrenheit to be applied properly. If it falls below 185 degrees Fahrenheit, it won’t pour or compact properly.
How long does asphalt paving last?
Usually, you can expect an asphalt parking lot to last between 10 and 20 years and an asphalt driveway to last between 20 and 40 years, depending on daily use, weather exposure, and installation quality.
How thick is asphalt paving?
A typical asphalt driveway or parking lot is about three inches thick, while heavier duty asphalt can be 4 to 7 inches thick.
When was asphalt paving invented?
It may surprise you, but asphalt paving goes back to the 19th century. There are records of asphalt pavement in Pont Royal, Paris, in 1835, and in America, as early as 1870 in Newark, New Jersey. It’s a proven and reliable material that’s held up against the test of time.
How does an asphalt paving machine work?
An asphalt paver carries the hot asphalt mix that is spread by a set of augers. The asphalt is then leveled and compacted by the piece of the machine called the screed, which determines the asphalt thickness.
Why is asphalt a good choice for paving needs?
A well-paved asphalt parking lot is not only functional and reliable but also looks nice and adds to your business’s overall curb appeal. It’s a cost-effective choice that has comparable performance to more expensive options.

Integrity did their first job for me in Dallas with excellent results. When I couldn’t find local paving contractors in Wichita Falls and Laredo, Integrity made it happen. Quality work, great customer service.
We had excellent service from Integrity Paving and Coatings; they were prompt to give an estimate and to do the job. We will use them again if the need arises.
Synergy Utilities and Reconstruction has been using Integrity Paving to do all of our repairs and seal coating. Most of our projects involve Municipalities and are on roads requiring special attention. They have proven to be very professional and their quality has exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Integrity! In many cases a name is just a name. With Integrity Paving it actually means something.
I had an ugly parking lot. A small job that some companies overprice to make it worth their while or they don’t have to mess with it. I called Integrity Paving. I got an immediate return call and Bill was here, in person, to estimate the job. The estimate was very reasonable, the service professional and friendly. The crew did an amazing job quickly and efficiently. No cut corners just because it was a small job. I would recommend Integrity Paving to anyone and plan on using them the next time. Their name says it all.
