No sooner than 30 days after paving is complete.

With regular upkeep, asphalt placed on a sturdy foundation can last 15 to 20 years.

Most driveways may be finished in a single day.

As soon as the asphalt is compacted, roads can be driven on; however, it is best to wait two to three days before parking overnight.

The process of sealing finished asphalt involves covering it with a commercial-grade protective coating. The sealant penetrates minuscule gaps in the asphalt, forms a bond with the asphalt molecules, and shields it from weather and other harmful elements.

Sealing a paving surface has similarities to “water proofing” a newly installed wood deck or applying a polyethylene coating or rust inhibitor to outdoor furniture for protection. Most of the time, “sealing” is advised after the asphalt has had time to cure. In certain cases, it can be used right away after compaction. Your driveway will look great and be protected with seal coat. It’s just a choice that you have.

After a year, sealer can be used to seal asphalt.

Pavement that is structurally sound can endure forever if it is sealed every two to three years.

Yes, provided that the foundation is still strong. However, if there are any soft spots, we’ll need to excavate, replace, and then resurface the area.

In California, we pave year-round, weather permitting.

Please give us a call, and we will be pleased to set up a meeting to talk about the issue.

Please feel free to read the reviews from several of our most satisfied clients.

The whole curing time of asphalt is six to twelve months.

It is recommended that you avoid driving on recently surfaced areas for at least 48 to 72 hours. This dry spell will be impacted by the weather. Dry periods are longer in colder climates and shorter in warmer climates.

A passageway that allows pedestrians and wheelchair users free and unhindered access to and egress from a specific area or location can be made up of walks and sidewalks, curb ramps and pedestrian ramps, lobbies and corridors, elevators, and other improved areas, or any necessary combination of these.

The main reason asphalt fails is water seeping into the foundation of the asphalt. Other factors that come into play are the sun, water, weight burdens, and traffic.

100% of asphalt removed from job sites is returned to an asphalt plant to be recycled and used again.

Recycled materials typically make about 40% of all asphalt that is brought to the job site.

The hallmark of alligator cracking is a cluster of cracks in one location that are easily identified. Cracking of this kind is a sign of subgrade issues. The failure is usually shallower the closer the cracks are to one another. Conversely, the failure is deeper the farther apart these fissures are.

Depending on the conditions, best practices recommend waiting 48 hours to prevent damage to the seal coat.

Installing asphalt in damp weather is not recommended. The asphalt crew at Superior Asphalt keeps an eye on the weather every day and makes sure that appropriate preparations and communication are made in case it could hinder work or lower the caliber of the job. When there is little to no mist or light rain, asphalt can be installed safely.

A mixture of cement, pozzolans, water, fine and coarse aggregates, and additives make up concrete.

Finished items like sidewalks, foundations, and the majority of road surfaces are made of concrete. Cement, sand, and gravel make up concrete. Concrete hardens because of a unique hardening component called cement.

The service of laying out and painting lines and stencils that make up a typical parking lot. Parking lot striping can be done as a new layout project typically off of plans drafted by an architect, or it can be done as a maintenance services to “freshen up” the painted lines and markings in your parking lot.

Paint should dry in two hours if applied on a dry, warm day.

It is advised to use standard colors (White, Yellow, Red, Blue, Green, Black). If you have a choice or follow the 5S protocol, we can mix specific colors at an extra fee.

Pavement stripes and pavement markings generally last about two years, depending on how well maintained the parking lot is, the amount of traffic the parking lot gets, and depending on how harsh the weather conditions in your area are.

Shot blasting is a form of surface prep. The action forcibly propels a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface, or remove surface contaminants.

  • Yellow – Yellow shall be the basic color for designating caution and for marking physical hazards such as: Striking against, stumbling, falling, tripping, and “caught in between.”
  • “DANGER” – Red, or predominantly red, with lettering or symbols in a contrasting color.
  • “CAUTION” – Yellow, or predominantly yellow, with lettering or symbols in a contrasting color.
  • “WARNING” – Orange, or predominantly orange, with lettering or symbols in a contrasting color.
  • “BIOLOGICAL HAZARD” – Fluorescent orange or orange-red, or predominantly so, with lettering or symbols in a contrasting color.

It is recommended to get your parking lot serviced roughly every three years. This is heavily dependent on the weather and the amount of traffic the lot receives.
