Paved asphalt surfaces are designed to provide on average
25 years of use. The aesthetics of any property are
enhanced by the clean, smooth look of professionally
constructed pavement. Other benefits include enhanced
safety because tripping hazards are minimized, improved
dust control, and reduced maintenance time. Asphalt
paving falls into three categories: New Construction,
Resurfacing (with or without Paving Fabric) and patching.
Construction: is the building of new asphalt services.
First, excavation and grading of the area are performed
as necessary to establish correct grade and drainage.
Next, an aggregate base course is placed and compacted.
Finally, a specifically designed asphalt mix is applied
to present a finished surface based on the customer's
needs. More info
As a management tool this plan enables you to plan your
pavement maintenance so you can maintain your parking
lot in the most cost-effective way. PMP is a planned,
systematic, long-term approach that ties together all
the various maintenance and rehabilitation options under
First we take inventory of the lot by measuring and
recording what we find. Then we assess the condition
of the asphalt and rank the defects and recommend repairs.
These repairs are ranked from the most cost-effective
to least cost-effective not just worst area to best.
In many cases, it is more cost effective to let certain
defects go a year or two and repair other defects in
the meantime. That is because some repairs - rather
than fix a defect - will prevent more costly defects
from occurring. More info
the least understood of all maintenance options, an
overlay can be your best friend if it done in time.
An overlay, as its name implies, is simply a new pavement
placed over top of an existing pavement section, often
with a paving fabric interlayer.
The thickness of an overlay is typically 1 1/2 inches,
type and amount of traffic as well as individual customer's
needs are also considered.
With the proper application, an overlay can build on
what you already have invested in your road or parking
lot, eliminating the need for removal and replacement.
Sometimes an overlay can provide for a longer life than
a new section can and at half to two-thirds of the cost.
By simply resurfacing the parking lot with asphalt we
will re-strengthen the lot but the cracks will reflect
through. Cracks are the first sign of deterioration.
Open cracks allow water to enter and this will get between
the layers and lead to further and faster deterioration.
This is why the Lambert Bros. strongly recommend using
a non-woven geosynthetic paving fabric.
Stresses related to cracking in the existing pavement
are transmitted or reflected into the new overlay. By
using the proper fabric interlayer system we provide
a medium that absorbs the stress which greatly retards
the propagation of cracks. This interlayer also allows
the overlay and the existing pavement to move independently
without building up high-tensile stresses thus allowing
the asphalt to flex more times before cracking. One
analogy to help understand this is that plywood can
be bent many more times before cracking than can a solid
wood board of the same thickness. Beam mechanics explain
that the thicker the beam, the greater the amount of
tensile stress at the base, for a given amount of flexure.
In short, by using a geo-synthetic fabric you maximize
the benefits of resurfacing this parking lot.
This is a special type of crack membrane installed before
a resurfacing layer to retard crack reflection from
the old pavement. The membrane can "flex"
with the movement of the original pavement system so
every block cracked area doesn't need to be removed
before resurfacing. In many applications, this is more
cost effective than a patch and resurface operation.
Excavate, Remove and Replace
This rehabilitation patching method is used for areas
of severely damaged pavement that needs to be removed
before the pavement can be properly repaired. At Lambert
Bros. we cut at least one foot beyond the deteriorated
and broken asphalt to ensure that all the weakened asphalt
is removed after which we restabilize the base. The
depth of the removal will be determined by the traffic
expected on that area of the pavement, and the condition
of the existing subbase. More
Skin patches are patches generally 1 inch or less in
thickness. Sometimes skin patches are used to fill depressions,
in which case the patch could be as thick as three or
four inches. A skin patch goes over the existing pavement
and is only used when there is no base failure, to achieve
drainage or for a low budget short term "Quick
Skin patches generally use a fine sand aggregate as
opposed to coarse aggregate because the edges of the
patch are "feathered" out to zero thickness.
Usually skin patched areas are used to improve the appearance
of pavement that has ravelled or to stop water penetration
due to puddles.
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of
cure." In the case of asphalt maintenance,
a gallon of prevention (sealcoat) is worth a ton of
cure (asphalt). LITERALLY. Sealcoat provides two essential
benefits - surface preservation and aesthetic improvement.
Sealcoating can prolong the life of weathered surfaces
and prevent good surfaces from becoming damaged. More

where the surface voids are 6 mm to 2 cm deep. Micro

to treat isolated random cracks in pavement. Cracks
are routed (optional) and cleaned with high powered

Speedhumps are large traffic calming devices
used by municipalities and homeowner's associations
to reduce speeding and cut through traffic on streets.
Speedhumps are usually 22' deep.
Speedbumps are narrow traffic calming devices
used in parking lots to protect pedestrians. Speedbumps
are 3-4' deep, 3" high and painted white or yellow.
