Rock-Tech Paving Ltd. specializes in new driveways and parking lots, as well as excavating damaged asphalt and repaving.
When it comes to paving new driveways and parking areas, we believe in starting with a strong foundation by establishing proper base work. It's also very important to do proper grade work in order to direct water flow. After paving, we offer the option of finishing your new parking lot with line painting. For damaged driveways and parking lots, we can assess whether or not a complete excavation is required or whether asphalt repairs are possible in order to cut down on costs. It's important to evaluate why the pavement has failed.
Why Driveways and Parking Lots Fail
The base is the most important part of the paving job. It usually costs more initially, but in fact, paying for a proper base will prove to be more cost-effective long term. Saving money by skipping base work will make your driveway susceptible to early failure and cost more money in the long run as you pay to have it repaired or replaced.
Your asphalt pavement is only as good as the base it was built on. Soft or wet spots are the most common reason for the pavement failing and base work will help deal with these areas. We see a lot of clay in Prince George and you cannot pave directly over it. Your driveway will heave or sink if you do.
