Caldwell specialize in fine grading, installing base stone, curbing, asphalt paving, striping, seal coating and asphalt stamping.
The Paving Process
Before any new paving project is started we first analyze the entire area. We have taken the guess-work out of grading by equipping each prep team with the latest in Laser Technology to help provide us with the proper engineering needed to ensure that your project drains correctly. Site preparation consists of layout, fine grading, the installation of base stone (if needed), and a compaction test to make sure that after all the prep work is done the base is strong and ready for paving.
After the necessary prep work is complete, paving can begin. Asphalt is best installed when it is at its hottest temperature. We realize that this is a substantial financial investment for you so we make sure to equip our paving team with the proper equipment and enough skilled personnel to successfully install the asphalt as quickly as possible.
“Do we need new base stone even if we have a hard surface?”
It depends on the traffic that will be using the new surface and the age of the current base stone. More times than not you need new base stone to help ensure the longevity of your new asphalt investment.
“How long do we wait to sealcoat after our first investment in new asphalt?”
We recommend sealing as early as six months to a year after installation. A customer can also wait up to three years to have the first seal coating application done.
The proper installation of base material provides the foundation for the asphalt and the overall structure. Depending on the traffic that will be using the new surface and the age of the current base stone, it may not be necessary. .
Seal coating helps lock out harmful sunlight, chemicals, and surface water that causes asphalt to prematurely age and deteriorate. Water is a major cause of damage. Proper seal coating includes thoroughly cleaning the parking lot, checking for surface cracks, filling cracks if needed and installing two coats of sealer. Sealing is recommended between six months to a year after your new asphalt has been installed, but a customer can wait up to three years to have the first seal coating application done.
Extruded concrete curbing is the most popular and most economical. It is installed by machine with several different molds to choose from. Curb & gutter systems are the most expensive and are normally required on large municipal projects.
Stamped asphalt produces a realistic brick, stone, or other design. The resulting decorative surface is more cost effective and durable than paving with other products.
We take pride in our work, using existing projects to showcase our work to future potential clients. We have now owned and developed more than one million square feet of commercial real estate.
