Paving an Asphalt Parking Lot

New Construction or Asphalt Repair

Paving a parking lot in the Louisville, Ky and Southern Indiana area is more than just laying a top coat of asphalt. The preparation and the grading of the aggregate sub base is more important for a long lasting asphalt parking lot. The base must be set to properly run off water to prevent heaving of the asphalt during freezing and thawing. It also must be compacted so no soft spots remain in the sub base. These soft spots are what causes cracking and pot holes. The aggregate base below the asphalt sinks and the asphalt follows.

Driveway Sealcoating

Protect your Driveway with Sealcoating

Sealcoating your driveway protects the asphalt from its primary enemies, petroleum based products and mother nature. Petroleum products, such as gasoline, remove key ingredients that bind the asphalt together. While the sun, wind and freezing and thawing degrade the asphalt components in the same manner.

Striegel Asphalt has been sealcoating asphalt driveways in Louisville, Ky for more than 50 years. Our sealcoat product replenishes the vital ingredients that bond your asphalt together and protects your asphalts surface from being penetrated by harsh degrading properties.

Concrete Driveways

Concrete is an excellent driveway material

When the basic driveway design has been decided, the next step is site preparation. As an example, let’s assume that an existing asphalt driveway is being replaced with a traditional, broom-textured concrete driveway. In brief, this is how a typical site preparation works.

The existing thin layer of asphalt is easily removed with a fork-lift truck and carted away. The existing gravel base is reusable, but since the new concrete driveway will be thicker, some of the gravel must be removed to maintain proper elevation.
