Asphalt Paving is commonly used for the construction of roads, pathways, driveways, alleyways, parking lots, airport runways, and road repairs.
Asphalt concrete (also known as asphalt, blacktop or pavement) is a composite material that is made up of a mineral aggregate bound together by a sticky, black substance called bitumen, which is mixed and heated in a manufacturing plant then hauled to site where it is laid in layers and compacted as per the requirements and specifications of the project.
Asphalt paving is one of the most widely used road construction materials in the world. It is durable, easy to repair, and less expensive than concrete. And, because it is 100% recyclable, very little ends up in landfills.
In Alberta, the climate takes a toll on our existing roadways and sidewalks. Various factors detrimentally affect our roadways, like extreme heat, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, freezing temperatures, the need to use salt, sand, gravel, and snow plows for safer driving conditions, and rapid spring thaw. In addition to that, major roadways in Alberta can see hundreds of thousands of vehicles a day. This can cause issues like potholes, rutting, grade depressions, frost heaves, and cracking which can all be detrimental to you and your vehicle. We’re sure everyone can name at least a handful of road repairs needed along the routes you use most.
