As a commercial property owner, you have numerous responsibilities, and upkeep of the building and surrounding land is one of the most important. Parking areas are crucial to daily operations, as they provide access to your facility for tenants and customers. If your lot has fallen into disrepair, here are four reasons why you should call a commercial paving contractor as soon as possible.
We know that first impressions matter, and the asphalt on your commercial property is the first impression your clients or potential clients will receive of your business when they arrive. It is imperative that it is in good shape, allowing your business to be associated with quality, safety, and attention to detail. Sealcoat, which can be placed on your asphalt 12 months after the initial installation, should be redone every two to four years to keep the pavement in tip-top shape. Here are three important reasons why you should sealcoat your commercial asphalt as soon as possible. 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.

Asphalt Milling Rochester NY
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?
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.

As we all know, customers can be rough on your company’s pavement. When they peel out or make tight turns in the parking lot, they can create deep scars in the asphalt. Winter, another threat to your pavement, damages asphalt by freezing, thawing, and freezing again, causing the aggregate bond to deteriorate.

Each municipality pavement represents a valuable investment, and to get the most out of that investment, you’ll need to maintain it on a regular basis. Maintained roadways and parking lots within your town/city make great first impressions from tourists and maintain loyalty from locals. In order to keep all pavement maintained, you need to reseal each paving project every 2-4 years, and here’s what the resealing process can do for you:
1. Eliminates Mold & Mildew
Before your driveway can be sealed, it must first have all vegetation destroyed. Pesky plants force their way through the cracks in the pavement, breaking apart the asphalt and weakening the aggregate bond. All unwanted plants will be treated with preventative chemicals.
2. Cleans Up Harmful Chemicals
The pavement is powerwashed before the sealant is added, so all car fluid stains, gas puddles, tree sap, and other substances are completely removed. The sealant can then adhere to the pavement the way it’s supposed to and it’ll protect the pavement from future car leaks.
3. Smooths the Paved Surface
All the potholes and cracks in the pavement are repaired with high-quality asphalt and aggregate. The material is then compressed down into the hole with a high pressure tool that compacts the hot pavement. Once the sealant is added, the surface will be shiny and smooth.
4. Trims the Pavement Edges
The chemicals in the sealant kill the grass outlining the pavement, leaving behind a trim, neat edge. Sealant leaves behind a better edge that a weed wacker as it leaves the grass looking fresh and maintained instead of chopped and haphazard.
The pavement of all municipalities needs to be maintained for it to keep an average lifespan, which is anywhere from 10-15 years. When you make sure to seal all paved surfaces within the recommended time frame, you’ll maximize on your initial investment. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give us a call and we’ll be happy to chat!
You’ll hear a lot of different opinions when it comes to properly maintaining your driveway. “Don’t drive on it,” “Drive on it as often as possible – it’ll help flatten the surface,” “Get it sealed every year,” “Don’t seal it for the next ten years,” “Don’t get it wet,” etc.
Your friends mean well. And if you just recently got it paved, you’re probably tempted to listen to ALL the advice you get. But be careful – some tips that sound like good advice can actually damage your pavement. Read More
