FAQS about commercial Paving
Widely considered the best material for commercial paving, asphalt is an affordable option that can support the loads of heavy traffic, equipment, and machinery. What’s more, its jet-black appearance allows for line striping and pavement markings that help organize traffic and keep your customers safe.
While not quite as cheap as gravel, asphalt is a cost-effective alternative to concrete. In addition to being affordable, commercial asphalt pavement is also flexible, durable, and relatively easy to maintain. With a little preventative care, it can endure Ontario’s harsh winters for many years to come!
While pavement thickness requirements vary from project to project, commercial asphalt driveways require at least three inches of asphalt to account for the weight of most passenger vehicles.
If your commercial or industrial pavement needs to support the concentrated loads of large trucks, machinery, and other heavy-duty equipment, your asphalt should be at least six inches thick with an aggregate base of roughly three inches.
When commercial asphalt is too thin, a wide range of pavement issues can occur. In most cases, the asphalt will buckle under the weight of concentrated loads—causing cracks and sunken areas to form in your asphalt pavement.
While very durable, asphalt is prone to deteriorating much faster than concrete. With routine care and preventative maintenance, however, your asphalt shouldn’t show many signs of wear and tear (including cracks and potholes) until roughly five to ten years into its life.
While I-2 is used for the base layer on most commercial and residential paving projects, I-4 is the highest grade of top asphalt used for commercial paving projects. This product incorporates a high percentage of stone and other aggregate materials to deliver a dense, sturdy finish.
Asphalt is more susceptible to water damage than concrete, and therefore, it needs a slope of at least .5% – 1% and as much as 1.5% – 2% in order for water to run off the surface properly.
