We make your pavement—and you—look good.
Pavement. It’s underfoot and under wheels, all over your property. Asphalt Paving is our specialty. If yours looks like a diamond in the rough, Black Diamond Paving can shape it into a shining gem—at a price that will surprise you.
When it comes time to repair or replace your pavement, you need more than a contractor who will do the bare minimum to get the job done. You need an expert and a partner who will be as invested in the success of the project as you are—someone who will help you take into account your property’s and your tenant’s interests and needs.
In short, you need Black Diamond Paving.
What is it?
An overlay, as its name implies, is simply a new pavement section (generally 1.5″ – 2″ thick) placed over the top of an existing pavement surface. Oftentimes overlays incorporate fabric interlayers to help act as a moisture barrier and reduce reflective cracking from the original surface into the new overlay.
When do you need it?
Typically, overlays are done in Stage 4 or 5 of the pavement’s life cycle—about the 15 – 25 year mark. With the proper application, an overlay can build on what you’ve already invested in your road or parking lot and can extend the functional life of the pavement surface by another 15 years or more.
What is it?
Patch paving is also commonly known as R&R (removal and replacement) or digouts. Given areas within a single property can vary significantly in terms of the stability of the underlying soil and the traffic loads placed upon them. It should come as no surprise that after a period of time, some areas will still be in sound structural condition while others will have failed. The conventional approach to pavement maintenance is simply to remove the areas that are failed and replace them with a thicker asphalt section, then perhaps sealcoat everything to give it a more uniform appearance.
How do you know if you need it?
The short answer is: it depends. The real answer is much longer and takes a whole bunch of factors into consideration. How old is your property, and what signs of wear and tear is it starting to display? If we think a more comprehensive rehabilitation plan is in your future, it might make more sense to replace the asphalt with thinner sections or otherwise plan the project to eliminate costs and redundancies. The best way to tell is to have us come out and take a look.
