What is a Paving Process, and How Does it Work?
Here’s what you can expect if you decide to add pavement to your outdoor living space or walkways:
Planning is an often-overlooked step that ensures the success of your walkway. Because each pavement project has different requirements, planning looks different for each renovation.
Preparation and Excavation
Your ground may require excavation or site preparation, depending on what was beneath the walkway. Furthermore, the ground beneath may need to be compacted and stabilized.
Laying a Sub Base
The sub base upon which the asphalt is poured must provide a solid, stable foundation against erosion, usage, and weather.
Pouring the Asphalt
The mixture is then heated to a high temperature to keep it pliable so that it can be laid out, graded, and leveled before it cools and hardens.
The final stage of installation is to wait for the lot or walkway to harden completely and should be dry in a matter of days.
