Six Reasons Asphalt Pavement Deserves Professional Attention

By | Commercial Paving | No Comments

Asphalt driveways and parking lots are tough, durable, and built to last. However, even the best asphalt will eventually start to show signs of wear and tear. Asphalt can be damaged by excessive heat and cold as well as by heavy use. Small cracks and other forms of damage can grow and spread, eventually affecting a large amount of the asphalt surface and lower layers. Because smooth, stable driving surfaces are so important to business operations, property owners choose to have All County Construction handle these repairs.

Here are six reasons why working with a commercial asphalt company from Rochester, NY might be the right choice for you. Read More

Winter can take a toll on your asphalt pavement. Potholes form as the temperatures rise during the day to melt the snow, only to have ice form at night when the temperatures drop down to freezing. If road paving is on your agenda this coming spring, you’ll need to take some extra steps now to protect your existing pavement and ensure the job is done well and lasts as long as possible. 

 

Even if you aren’t planning on paving any roads this coming spring, you still need to prepare for winter to maintain the longevity of your roads. Prevention can be much more effective and less expensive than making repairs in the spring. Read More

Fairport, NY – Hi Chance, just wanted to let you know that we are very pleased with the final outcome of our parking lot. From the time we got serious in discussing the project, it took over two years to get to the final completed state. A lot wringing of hands, differing opinions, concerns over cost, etc. But in the end, I feel we did the right things and have a quality end result. Thank you to you and others at All County Construction for the quality work you performed. I’ve received numerous compliments over the past week how great things look. Thanks again.

What Does a Milling Machine Actually Do?

Wirtgen Milling Machine

In the past, we’ve used only our Skid Steer for all our milling projects, but this summer we’ve been excited to use our new Wirtgen asphalt milling machine. We’ve used it for main roads, large driveways, parking lots, and any project that required milling anywhere from a few inches to up to 4 feet. For smaller milling projects like patches and pavement trenches, we can use the Skid Steer, which can mill up to 6 inches deep and 2 feet wide.

So what’s the benefit of asphalt milling?

1. Recycle

First, every time we mill the pavement down, we use the leftover asphalt for new pavement. We outsource it to be ground up, mixed with aggregate and binder cement, and then delivered as fresh pavement ready to be used for a new paving project.

2. Rumble Strips

Municipal owners sometimes want rumble strips installed along highways for better driver safety – with the intention the rumble strips will wake late-night drivers from drowsing at the wheel. Our milling machine can install these quickly and efficiently.

3. Surface Smoothing

Milling removes uneven areas in the pavement by making the whole surface one even level. Our Wirtgen removes wheel ruts from traffic, dips from standing rainwater, and potholes from winter freezes. Once the existing pavement has a smooth surface, we can spread new pavement over the top and create a fresh surface.

4. Dowel Bar Retrofit

Dowel Bar Retrofit, another specialty item milling machines can accomplish, increases the integrity and longevity of pavement. The Wirtgen forms ridges in the pavement perpendicular to cracks. We then place steel bars within the ridges and seal them in place with non-shrink concrete. After that, the surface is diamond-ground to smooth any irregularities.
