Mid Michigan Commercial Asphalt

Saginaw and Mid Michigan Commercial paving requires contractors to consider the pavements function and traffic before designing the pavement, and choosing the appropriate materials and techniques.

Residential pavements are virtually always smaller and have lighter traffic and load requirements than commercial pavements.

The intended use of commercial asphalt pavement is a critical factor, when designing the pavement, but the contractor must also consider the factors that may very from one project to another.

These Commercial Asphalt Factors Are:

1. Commercial pavements usually support high volumes of traffic, and they must often bear the weight of dumpster trucks, tractor trailers, buses, and delivery vans. Traffic volume and weight have a direct impact on depth of asphalt pavement necessary to ensure the pavement longevity.

2. Experienced asphalt contractors know the foundation is a critical part of a commercial paving project. The foundation gives asphalt pavement the support it needs to bear the weight of traffic without buckling, sagging or cracking.

3. Industrial pavements tend to have more transition points than residential paving may only have a single point where connects to a street or alley, but commercial pavement may connect to multiple streets, neighboring pavements, or access roads. Weather building a new pavement, installing and asphalt overlay, or reconstructing an existing pavement commercial contractors must make sure the transitions between pavements are smooth and even.

4. Commercial pavements must drain adequately. Poor drainage can negatively affect the impressions that those using the pavement form about the business, but it can also present potential safety risks.

Furthermore improper drainage can shorten the life of asphalt pavement by forcing water beneath the pavements surface or allowing it to penetrate to the foundation, reputable asphalt contactors will ensure that commercial pavements have the corrects slope and sufficient catch basins or drains.
