Before Paving After Paving

Bernardsville is the northernmost borough in Somerset County, in the U.S. state of New Jersey. The borough is nestled in the heart of the Raritan Valley region. As of the 2020 United States census, the borough's population was 7,893, an increase of 186 (+2.4%) from the 2010 census count of 7,707, which in turn reflected an increase of 362 (+4.9%) from the 7,345 counted in the 2000 census. Bernardsville is often mispronounced as "Ber-NARDS-ville" as opposed to the correct pronunciation "BER-nards-ville".

Bernardsville was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 6, 1924, from portions of Bernards Township, based on the results of a referendum held on April 29, 1924. The borough was named for Sir Francis Bernard, 1st Baronet, who served as governor of the Province of New Jersey before the Revolutionary War. In 2009, part of the borough was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Olcott Avenue Historic District.

In 2000, Bernardsville had the 10th-highest per capita income in the state. Based on data from the 2006–2010 American Community Survey, the borough had a per-capita income of $70,141, ranked 27th in the state. In 2019, the borough was ranked by Bloomberg News as 64th on its 2019 list of Bloomberg Richest Places, one of 18 in the state included on the list.

Bernardsville was originally a section of Bernards Township known as Vealtown. In 1840, Vealtown became Bernardsville, named after Sir Francis Bernard, Colonial governor of New Jersey from 1758 to 1760. Located in the northernmost part of Somerset County, just 12 miles (19 km) south of Morristown, the borough includes some of the last vestiges of the Great Eastern Forest.

During the Revolutionary War, General Charles Lee rested his troops in Vealtown around the night of December 12 to 13, 1776. General Lee and some of his guard spent the night about 3 miles (5 km) southeast at White's Inn on the southeast side of Basking Ridge, near the manor house of Continental Army general William Alexander, Lord Stirling. On the morning of December 13, General Lee was captured by the British and removed to New York. The Vealtown Tavern, now known as the John Parker Tavern, was a regular stop during the 1779–1780 winter encampment at Morristown.

After the Civil War, many wealthy and prominent New Yorkers moved into the area, first as summer visitors, then later as permanent residents of the Bernardsville Mountain. For most, the men worked in New York City while the women and children spent summers in Bernardsville. The Gladstone Branch of the existing railroad line was built through Bernardsville in 1872 and played an important role in the borough's development. The Gladstone line, whose five o'clock train was appropriately nicknamed "the millionaire's special," as it was direct route to Penn Station, allowed the men who built grand estates in Bernardsville to commute to the city on a daily basis rather than only visit their families on weekends. Bernardsville did not become an independent municipality until 1924, when it split from Bernards Township.

On November 4, 2020, The Bernardsville Library announced that it would join the MAIN Library System, which has member libraries in all of Morris County, all of Hunterdon County and parts of Somerset and Warren counties. The Bernardsville Library is the second library from Somerset County to join the MAIN System, after the Bernards Township Library in neighboring Bernards Township. The library joined the MAIN System on January 11, 2021

On January 15, 2021, Kings Food Markets announced that it would close their Bernardsville location on Morristown Road, officially closing on January 23, 2021.

The New Jersey State Review Board for Historic Sites recommended the creation of the Olcott Avenue historic district on February 10, 2009. While the Olcott Avenue School is but one historic structure within Bernardsville's first historic district area, the area's appeal and historic significance is part of the story of the rise of the middle class in Bernardsville and how this particular location impacted the entire region, from the downtown, Little Italy, and the Mountain Colony areas.

The Olcott Avenue Historic District is a 28-acre (11 ha) historic district located along portions of Olcott, Childsworth, and Highview Avenues, and Church Street that recognizes a neighborhood developed in the early 20th century. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on November 20, 2009, for its significance in architecture, community planning and development, and education.

According to the National Park Service:

Olcott Avenue is named after Frederic P. Olcott, a New York banker, politician, and philanthropist, who lived here. The street was originally named after Stewart Wolfe. In 1905, Olcott financed the construction of a high school, the first in the township, and donated it to the Bernards Township Board of Education. The stone building features Tudor Revival style and was designed by architect Henry Janeway Hardenbergh, who also lived here. Hardenbergh also designed the Bernardsville United Methodist Church and the parish house at St. Bernard's Church. The district includes several houses designed with Colonial Revival style.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 12.91 square miles (33.44 km), including 12.84 square miles (33.24 km2) of land and 0.08 square miles (0.19 km) of water (0.58%).

Unincorporated communities, localities and place names located partially or completely within the borough include Blazuers Corner, Mine Brook and Somerseten.

The borough borders Bernards Township to the east, Far Hills to the southwest, and Peapack-Gladstone to the west in Somerset County, Harding Township to the northeast and both Mendham Borough and Mendham Township to the northwest in Morris County.

Bernardsville has a climate that borders between Humid continental and Humid subtropical with cool sometimes cold winters and warm to hot, humid summers on average. High elevations of the town have a warm summer humid continental climate with more snow during the winter and more orographic precipitation. Summer is the wettest season with frequent afternoon thunderstorms while Winter is the driest season.

Some of Bernardsville's Latino population are made up of residents of "Little Paraguay" located on the Basking Ridge side of the train tracks.

 Asphalt Milling in Bernardsville, New Jersey

What is Asphalt Milling?

Asphalt Milling is the process of removing some of the top layer of paved areas. It is a cost-effective method for improving a wide range of surfaces, including roads, parking lots, bridges, and even parking garages. The process can also be used to create a new asphalt surface by adding layers of color to existing pavement. Here's a quick overview of the process. To learn more, contact an expert today.

Planning

When it comes to maintaining roads, planning and asphalt milling are important steps in the maintenance process. Planning asphalt milling can eliminate large areas of uneven surface that can lead to rutting, shoving, and washboard texture. These imperfections affect ride quality, extra wear on vehicles, and can even be the cause of a vehicle accident. The process is completely recyclable and will result in a smoother surface. The materials excavated will either be used for a new pavement project on-site or for processing.

Cold planning involves controlled removal of the top layer of pavement, and the process removes deteriorated, aged, cracked, or otherwise unsatisfactory pavement. Modern cold planers feature replaceable tungsten carbide cutting teeth and a large diameter rotary drum. These tools are also equipped with an automatic grade control system to maintain a precise grade throughout the entire process. Once the process is complete, the recycled asphalt is removed from the site and loaded onto a truck for recycling.

Fine-Milling

With its tighter tooth spacing, a fine-milling asphalt drum can be installed on a road machine with minimal depth to the road surface. This method is required to install thin HMA overlays, which can stretch maintenance budgets. But fine milling is not just about overlays. In addition to addressing other road-repair concerns, fine-milling can also help improve the appearance of roads. Here are three reasons why fine-milling is useful.

The process is used to repair cracks and potholes, and even fix foundational damages. It also eliminates deteriorating surface layers. During the process, excess asphalt is collected and used for other restoration processes. These are referred to as Recyclable Asphalt Pavement (RAP).

Reclaimed Asphalt

Reclaimed asphalt milling is a method of recycling existing asphalt pavements. This type of recycled material is used for roads and parking lots. In many cases, reclaimed asphalt is more environmentally friendly than virgin asphalt, and it can have a higher lifespan. Reclaimed asphalt is also called tarmac or recycled asphalt. Reclaimed asphalt is made from old pavement and is often more durable than virgin asphalt. The Bagela recycler hot mix performs just as well as virgin asphalt.

The unit weight of processed RAP varies, and it depends on the type of aggregates used in reclaimed pavement. The moisture content of stockpiled material has a significant impact on the milling unit weight. Although limited data is available, the average unit weight of milled RAP is 120 to 140 lb/ft3, slightly less than that of natural aggregates. Therefore, the cost of milling RAP is significantly lower than that of crushed material.

 Asphalt Patching in Bernardsville, New Jersey

Asphalt Patching is an efficient method used for repairing small sections of asphalt pavement by replace the damaged material with new asphalt only to restore its full structural strength without requiring repaving or resurfacing. This process also reduces the required amount of paving necessary and the associated costs, while increasing the durability of the pavement. This is beneficial to business owners, who may have limited budgets. It is also beneficial to local communities because it increases safety for everyone who walks or drives on the paved road.

Asphalt Patching - Keep Your Garage Looking Great and Save Money

A wide range of materials are used in asphalt patching, such as asphalt and concrete, which have different advantages over synthetic interlocking pavement mixes. Asphalt is typically the chosen material because it is the most commonly used for industrial applications, including industrial, commercial, and residential streets. Concrete, on the other hand, is used in residential neighborhoods and is relatively cheaper than asphalt. When deciding upon what material should be used, it is important that you contact an experienced asphalt paving contractor who can advise you about your particular needs. To learn more about asphalt patching, contact a paving contractor in your area today.

Most asphalt patches replace one or both of the damaged pavement panels. Depending on the severity of the damage, the repaired area may include a medallion or curb accent, which are designed to visually define the repaired section of pavement. A small curb accent, which is typically made of steel or aluminum, is typically added to the end of the repaired section of pavement to visually soften the contrast between the adjacent roadway and the adjacent sidewalk or curb. The amount of curb accent required will depend upon the severity of the damage and the length of time it will take for the repair to be completed.

Not all asphalt paving requires the replacement of damaged panels. In some cases, the damaged asphalt pavement simply needs to be repaired with a different style of asphalt. When a repair becomes necessary, contact an experienced asphalt paving contractor to find out what kind of materials are available and how much each cost. In many cases, the repair is usually cost-effective when compared to ripping up and replacing the panels. If the repair involves new asphalt, make sure to choose a company that uses high quality, fully patched asphalt that is manufactured by a reputable provider.

Another type of asphalt paving project involves leveling. In some cases, the problem is not a flat spot; sometimes it is a uneven surface. Regardless of the situation, most asphalt pavements require some leveling before they're ready for use. Because it costs so much to rip up and replace asphalt pavements, most property owners avoid tearing up and replacing their asphalt pavements if at all possible. If the area doesn't need to be leveled completely, repave the area. If the problem lies in the leveling of the paved surface, contact a reputable asphalt paving company to find out what products they recommend for this job.

Parking lots face unique problems that other pavement areas don't. In addition to tearing up and replacing asphalt pavement, parking lots may also need to be repaired or replaced with a variety of materials. The first thing you may want to consider for your asphalt pavement replacement project is the addition of a new parking lot sealer. Parking lot sealants are specially designed for asphalt pavements and provide the additional protection that asphalt parking lots need. Depending on your parking lot and budget, you may be able to simply apply the park sealer yourself using a chemical paint or roller application system.

Asphalt patching can also help in small cracks. Small cracks in asphalt driveways or patches can often be repaired easily and professionally. When dealing with small cracks, always try to work on the problem area right away. If you leave the crack open it will quickly fill with water and expand. This will cause additional damage and possibly even cost you more in the long run. For larger cracks, consult your local contractor to decide if you need to tear up the entire asphalt driveway or if a repair with a patch will suffice.

Asphalt patching should be an easy and affordable option to protect your parking lot. If you have any questions about the process, contact your local contractors. Most will be more than happy to answer your questions and give you the information you need to make an informed decision about your parking lot's maintenance. The cost of repair or replacement should be considered a monthly expense. With proper preventative maintenance your garage will be protected from stains and cracks for many years to come.

 Asphalt Paving in Bernardsville, New Jersey

Asphalt paving is one of the most commonly used forms of construction today. This is due to its high adaptability and low cost. In addition, it is also considered to be a very practical option when it comes to home paving. However, it does have certain shortcomings that need to be taken note of. Read on to know about some of these and consider whether you should opt for asphalt or not.

One of the disadvantages of using an asphalt driveway is that it can be quite slippery. You need to make sure, therefore, that you drive your car carefully on it. And even if you do so, there is still a chance of your vehicle getting stuck on the asphalt. So, you should keep a good grip on the steering wheel and use all the available help you can. This is especially important if you are making a long-distance drive.

There is also a possibility that asphalt might damage the surface underneath if it is not properly sealed. This is because asphalt is a petroleum product and petroleum products can cause damage to the environment. Therefore, you should make sure that the paved area is adequately sealed to make sure that it does not erode.

It is also important to remember that asphalt can crack when it gets too wet. If this happens, you will need to replace the area with new asphalt so that it does not get cracked again in future. Otherwise, you may end up spending more on repairing cracks that you have caused. In fact, asphalt cracks can be a real headache especially during heavy rains when the paver becomes very susceptible to water penetration.

Apart from this, asphalt is also susceptible to cracking when it is exposed to heat. This is especially true during summer months when the temperature is high. During this period, it is possible for the asphalt to get very soft and mushy. When this happens, it is much harder to seal the surface properly and repair any cracks that have developed.

Another problem that can occur with an asphalt paver is when it is being used improperly. For instance, when the asphalt paver is being used to pave driveways, it can easily grind over the edges of the driveway. The grout lines might also get damaged during this process. In fact, there are some homeowners who prefer using concrete or paved paths in front of their homes and driveways. However, they often forget that they should also seal these paths. Sealing the pathways will help to keep them protected from debris, grit, water and sand.

Homeowners should therefore find a qualified company to clean up their asphalt paver once in a while. These professionals will use a pressure washer to remove all the dirt and debris that have built up on the paver. They will then use a power washer to completely clean the water surface. After this is done, you can simply have the surfaces sealed and maintained by your local company.

By hiring a company to perform regular maintenance on your asphalt paver, you will be able to prevent some very common problems. For instance, if you find that the pavers have cracks, you can ask your local maintenance company to repair these cracks before they become larger. You can also ask them to apply new asphalt once a year. If you forget to do this, the asphalt will eventually wear out and begin to crack again. By properly maintaining your asphalt paver, you will be able to save yourself money in the long run because you will not have to call maintenance on a regular basis.

 Commercial Paving in Bernardsville, New Jersey

Commercial paving involves the repairing and maintenance of public and private properties. In many countries, the government allocates a part of its budget for the paving of roads, buildings and other structures. The maintenance and repair of pavements and walkways is a regular task that is entrusted to commercial paving companies. There are a number of types of pavements, such as drainage, traffic control, beautification, and parking lots. For any establishment, it is important to have a well-maintained and beautiful pavement to make them look presentable and appealing.

Commercial Paving Services for Improvement of Business Facilities

Commercial paving can also be damaged by some external factors, such as severe weather, vandalism, careless parking, and the use of unsanitary practices. When parking lot owners or operators do not maintain their parking lots properly, they may find themselves liable for damages that arise due to such negligence. If asphalt pavement is prone to deterioration due to heavy rains or the use of an inferior sealant, they may end up having to repair the damaged areas. Repairing such damages may prove to be a costly venture, which is why it is essential to contact a reliable company that can provide durable, attractive, and cost-effective repairs.

A good commercial paving company should be able to provide durable and attractive commercial concrete structures that are able to withstand any type of weather. These structures should also be repaired or replaced easily and efficiently, in order to prevent inconveniences to both customers and business owners. A reputable company should always be able to perform regular maintenance activities such as drainage cleaning, color change, and stone removal. These tasks are important to maintain the cleanliness and condition of commercial concrete, which in turn helps in maintaining the value of the property.

One of the main tasks of any paving company is to maintain the overall appearance of its commercial parking lot or building. This can be achieved by regularly cleaning out the parking lot. This is one of the most effective ways of promoting the brand image of the company. Furthermore, regular maintenance of the commercial paving services will allow business owners to identify possible problems such as cracks and other types of damage. Such issues can be resolved quickly, without the need to completely replace the commercial asphalt or concrete.

Cracks and other damage to pavement should never be overlooked as these can affect the overall durability of a pavement. A qualified paving job crew should be able to repair all types of cracks that could be found in asphalt pavements. In case cracks are located in an area with high traffic, it is advisable to get them repaired immediately. For this reason, it is necessary to choose a paving job crew that has established contacts with experienced contractors.

Apart from cracked and damaged asphalt pavements, another area that can benefit from the service of a paving contractor is the parking lots. Parking lots that are not properly maintained can lead to a lot of problems for business owners. When the parking lot is not properly paved, it can expose the vehicle tires to uneven conditions. In addition, if the parking lot is not properly maintained, it can also reduce the life span of the vehicle tires. Therefore, it is advisable to contact professional pavement repair services to have a parking lot repaired and maintained.

Another popular commercial service that many business owners hire is the installation of blacktop. Blacktop is a layer of asphalt on the paved surfaces of the building. It makes the driveways look more attractive and extends the life of the building's driveways. However, blacktop requires regular cleaning and maintenance. Professional blacktop installation should be done by trained professionals so that the blacktop will not slip and will not damage the surrounding areas.

It is important to hire professionals for blacktop installations because some DIY ideas can be dangerous and damaging. The material that is used for blacktop is asphalt and it is very thick. Hence, improper handling of this material can lead to cracks and potholes. In addition to this, the process of installing bitumen can be messy and long. If the surface of the parking areas are not cleaned and maintained regularly, they can cause damage to the asphalt.

 Driveway Paving in Bernardsville, New Jersey

Whether you're replacing your old driveway or simply trying to improve your curb appeal, there are a few things you need to know about driveway paving. From the cost to the materials used, here are some helpful tips to guide your next project.

What You Need to Know About Driveway Paving

The best way to determine the true cost of your driveway paving project is to get a free estimate from a driveway paving specialist near you. There are many experts ready to help. The cost of a new driveway will vary greatly depending on the size, shape, and material of the driveway.

There are four main types of driveways. They are asphalt, concrete, gravel, and pavers. All four come in different styles and performance qualities. The most popular material is a paving stone.

However, you can also install a small gravel driveway. If you are a green space fan, you may want to consider installing a grass paver instead.

The cost of driveway paving will depend on the size of your driveway, the material you choose, and the labor required. This includes the actual installation of the driveway as well as the disposal of the old material.

The cheapest material for a driveway is a gravel one. The average price ranges from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Alternatively, you can pay for the labor to lay down a paver base.

A properly constructed driveway can last decades. The most durable type is a gravel or grass filled plastic paver. These can be easily replaced if they start to wear out.

 Grading and Gravel Work in Bernardsville, New Jersey

The Importance of Grading and Gravel Work

Grading and gravel work is an integral part of any construction project. Whether you’re building a home, driveway, road or any other structure, the site needs to be properly graded for a strong and lasting foundation. A well-graded site will also help to provide proper drainage and prevent future damage from flooding, erosion or structural problems.

While you may be tempted to save money by hiring an unlicensed contractor to perform your grading and gravel work, this is not always the best idea. In order to be licensed, contractors need to have a minimum of four years of journey-level experience and pass both a trade and license law exam. This means that they are far more likely to have the skills and knowledge necessary for a job done right.

Licensed contractors are required to carry liability insurance, worker’s compensation insurance and general liability insurance. This provides peace of mind knowing that you will be covered in the event of a problem with the job. In addition, a licensed contractor has been through the rigorous process of being background checked and is required to carry professional insurance, which includes a surety bond and worker’s comp insurance.

Rough grading is the shaping of the land for construction purposes, and can be done by using heavy machinery like bulldozers and excavators. It’s typically performed to create a specific slope for the foundation of a new construction, as well as to improve the drainage of the area.

The process of rough grading involves moving dirt and debris from the site, and is usually followed by a smoothing or finish grade. It is a crucial step before the installation of any asphalt, concrete or pavers, and it ensures that your finished product will be up to standards.

A proper grading strategy will not only protect your investment but will also increase the value of your property. It will make your property more appealing, and will prevent water runoff from causing costly damages in the future.

If you’re planning on constructing a new driveway, you should have the site professionally surveyed and graded to avoid future headaches. A reputable paving company will take the time to research the site and prepare it for the installation of your driveway, so that the end result will be exactly as you envisioned.

 Industrial Paving in Bernardsville, New Jersey

How Industrial Paving Can Benefit Your Business

Industrial paving is a great way to improve the look of your property and provide numerous benefits. It can help keep your building cool in the summer and warm in the winter, minimize wear and tear on company vehicles, and improve traffic flow.

Paving your commercial and industrial spaces is also an important part of maintaining a safe and productive workplace. Routine maintenance of your paved surfaces is crucial to prevent costly and time-intensive repairs that could interrupt day-to-day business operations. A paving company who understands your industry’s needs can help design long-term plans for regular inspection and maintenance.

The size, shape and terrain of industrial paving jobs often require an extra level of expertise that a residential paving job does not. These challenges can include grading management, ensuring the surface is smooth and even and preventing water from collecting on the surface.

Durable pavement for industrial use requires dense asphalt and proper compaction. A commercial grade paving machine, along with heavy rollers/compacters are required to ensure compaction and that all air voids are removed.

Using recycled aggregates in concrete can decrease the environmental footprint of your paving project by minimizing waste disposal and reducing the amount of fresh aggregate that is mined or extracted from landfills. In addition, incorporating a small amount of recycled materials into your mix can reduce the cost of new asphalt.

Reducing Rutting With RAP Aggregates

Compared to virgin aggregates, reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) has less of a tendency to rut and is more durable in hot weather conditions. This is because the RAP material is more porous than virgin aggregates, allowing for water to soak through the aggregate and into the ground below. It is also more durable than other materials because it has been exposed to the corrosive effects of heat and moisture.

Joint Stability to Perform

When a concrete pavement is subjected to high traffic, it is critical that the joints perform well. They should transfer wheel loads evenly and maintain joint stability to allow for a deflection of the joints between 0.010 inches and 0.025 inches depending on the type of wheel loads anticipated in the area. This is achieved through a combination of a load-transfer mechanism that allows for proper joint spacing, the use of stiff and/or modified binders to resist shear forces, and a base course that distributes traffic and environmental loading across the paving.

The base course should be placed so that it can withstand the highest shear stresses that occur about 50-70 mm below the asphalt surface to maximize the durability of the entire pavement system. In addition to enhancing the rutting resistance of the base course, this strategy helps to reduce a concrete pavement’s susceptibility to cracking.

Permeable paving is a good alternative for industrial paving projects that are in areas where there may be significant amounts of rainstorms and erosion. This type of paving is prone to clogging when water collects in the reservoir, but it can be easily drained out through a simple system of pipes and drains.

 Parking Lot Paving in Bernardsville, New Jersey

Whether you're building a new parking lot or upgrading the one you already have, you should be aware of the process involved. From the initial site work to the final coating, it's important to take the right steps.

How to Properly Prepare Your Parking Lot for Paving

First, you'll want to choose a contractor with the expertise and experience to get the job done right. Your contractor should also be willing to provide a full estimate of materials and labor, and the cost will vary depending on the size and complexity of your project.

Next, you'll want to decide on the type of asphalt you'll use. Traditionally, asphalt paving has been done using base asphalt mixtures over an aggregate layer. This is the most common method. The advantages of this approach include the ability to keep the parking lot at a constant elevation, which eliminates the need for underdrains.

You'll also need to decide on how you'll handle water management. The amount of water your pavement can handle is a key factor in its longevity. If you're unable to control how much moisture a surface can absorb, it can cause damage.

In addition, you'll need to make sure your sub-base is adequately prepared for a new asphalt surface. Most subgrade soils contain silt and clay. This can cause moisture to penetrate the sub-base and undermine the structural strength of the pavement.

You'll also want to consider the appropriate thickness of your asphalt paving. The thickness of your base course and surface course will depend on how much traffic your parking lot gets.

 Paving in Bernardsville, New Jersey

Asphalt paving is one of the most commonly used forms of construction today. This is due to its high adaptability and low cost. In addition, it is also considered to be a very practical option when it comes to home paving. However, it does have certain shortcomings that need to be taken note of. Read on to know about some of these and consider whether you should opt for asphalt or not.

One of the disadvantages of using an asphalt driveway is that it can be quite slippery. You need to make sure, therefore, that you drive your car carefully on it. And even if you do so, there is still a chance of your vehicle getting stuck on the asphalt. So, you should keep a good grip on the steering wheel and use all the available help you can. This is especially important if you are making a long-distance drive.

There is also a possibility that asphalt might damage the surface underneath if it is not properly sealed. This is because asphalt is a petroleum product and petroleum products can cause damage to the environment. Therefore, you should make sure that the paved area is adequately sealed to make sure that it does not erode.

It is also important to remember that asphalt can crack when it gets too wet. If this happens, you will need to replace the area with new asphalt so that it does not get cracked again in future. Otherwise, you may end up spending more on repairing cracks that you have caused. In fact, asphalt cracks can be a real headache especially during heavy rains when the paver becomes very susceptible to water penetration.

Apart from this, asphalt is also susceptible to cracking when it is exposed to heat. This is especially true during summer months when the temperature is high. During this period, it is possible for the asphalt to get very soft and mushy. When this happens, it is much harder to seal the surface properly and repair any cracks that have developed.

Another problem that can occur with an asphalt paver is when it is being used improperly. For instance, when the asphalt paver is being used to pave driveways, it can easily grind over the edges of the driveway. The grout lines might also get damaged during this process. In fact, there are some homeowners who prefer using concrete or paved paths in front of their homes and driveways. However, they often forget that they should also seal these paths. Sealing the pathways will help to keep them protected from debris, grit, water and sand.

Homeowners should therefore find a qualified company to clean up their asphalt paver once in a while. These professionals will use a pressure washer to remove all the dirt and debris that have built up on the paver. They will then use a power washer to completely clean the water surface. After this is done, you can simply have the surfaces sealed and maintained by your local company.

By hiring a company to perform regular maintenance on your asphalt paver, you will be able to prevent some very common problems. For instance, if you find that the pavers have cracks, you can ask your local maintenance company to repair these cracks before they become larger. You can also ask them to apply new asphalt once a year. If you forget to do this, the asphalt will eventually wear out and begin to crack again. By properly maintaining your asphalt paver, you will be able to save yourself money in the long run because you will not have to call maintenance on a regular basis.

Before you hire any company, it will be important to ask them about the amount of experience that they have with asphalt paving. Any paving company should be able to provide you with a list of references that they have supplied to previous customers. You can also request to see a proof of insurance or a business license if you feel that the company does not have the proper licensing to carry out the kind of work that they are doing.

 Repair and Maintenance in Bernardsville, New Jersey

Maintaining an attractive asphalt surface with a dark coat and crisp lines is an attractive feature of your property, increasing its value. But to keep it looking its best, regular upkeep is necessary. Thankfully, our network of asphalt maintenance contractors makes this task easy - simply keep those parking lots and driveways looking fantastic!

Potholes and Cracks: Fixing Small Issues Before They Spread

Your asphalt pavement can suffer damage due to various factors. For instance, if it has been exposed to the elements for an extended period of time, it could oxidize, making it more prone to cracking and raveling.

These repairs should be undertaken as soon as possible to avoid further issues from occurring. Furthermore, they will protect your asphalt from environmental elements and help shield it against water damage.

Asphalt repairs often involve patching, crack filling and sealing. While all these options can be performed by an experienced maintenance contractor, proper preparation is key. Start by clearing away debris from the surface such as loose asphalt or vegetation so you can apply materials correctly without wasting time, energy or supplies. This makes applying materials much simpler when dealing with this kind of issue.

The second step in asphalt repairs is to thoroughly clean it, making sure to eliminate any rust or salt stains that might be present. Doing this will prevent new materials from sticking to existing pavement and guarantee a long-lasting repair.

Finally, it is essential to seal the patched area to prevent water absorption from rain or melting snow. Doing so could deteriorate the asphalt and lead to further harm.

No matter how the repairs are conducted, asphalt must be treated and inspected periodically to maintain its quality and extend its lifespan. Regular inspections allow you to detect potential issues early and give yourself the chance to address them before becoming a bigger issue for your business.

Professional asphalt repair companies can assess your specific situation and suggest the most suitable repairs. They also determine if patching or replacing damaged areas of your surface is the most suitable solution.

Skin Patching: For larger potholes, professionals can patch them with hot-mix asphalt. A machine pours the mix over the surface of the hole and then compacts it, creating a solid surface that lasts longer than cold-patch asphalt.

Another solution is to use a tiger torch to heat up the asphalt before patching it. This method works best for large potholes and allows workers to make an even patch.

Are you in need of patching or other asphalt repairs? Reach out to a nearby pavement maintenance contractor today. They can offer an obligation-free consultation and estimate.

Oxidation: Oxidation, usually the result of exposure to ultraviolet rays, is a frequent factor in surface cracking and raveling. Oxidized asphalt typically has a gray or tar-like hue and is more brittle than new asphalt.

 Residential Paving in Bernardsville, New Jersey

Asphalt paving for residential driveways is a cost effective and long-lasting alternative to concrete. This type of paving offers many advantages, including high skid resistance, low maintenance, and a smoother surface. It is often used to pave pathways, parking lots, and even cart paths.

Tips For Installing Residential Paving

One of the biggest advantages of asphalt is its ability to be designed to suit a wide variety of soils and conditions. A good paving contractor will also take into consideration budgetary concerns as well as the durability of the product.

The most popular type of residential paving is the asphalt driveway. These driveways are a cost-effective and attractive way to enhance the look of your home. However, installing a new one is not an easy task. As a result, you should hire a reputable paving company.

Before you begin, you should make sure that the project is approved by the municipality. Depending on the size of your property, you may need to work with the zoning board or planning department. If your paving job includes a subdrain, you will also have to consider the water management for the job.

If you have an existing concrete driveway, it may be possible to simply remove it and have the subbase converted to a new subbase for overlaying. However, this is not always the best option. For example, if your property has clayey soil, you will have to prepare the subbase properly.

Other options include the use of decorative concrete or an asphalt resurfacing process. Regardless of the material you choose, you should always look for the best paving company for your project. You can do this by contacting the Better Business Bureau or visiting the projects of potential contractors.

The best way to determine the appropriate thickness of asphalt is to take into account the specific needs of your project. While there are no hard and fast rules, a good rule of thumb is to use at least 2" of asphalt for residential projects.

The smallest sized square yard of asphalt weighs between two and four tons. When comparing the cost of different types of paving materials, you should also consider the cost of labor, the costs of materials, and the time involved in the process. In addition, you will need to decide whether you would rather have an underdrain or not. Many residential driveways don't require underdrains, but some may.

Another advantage of an asphalt paving is the fact that it's much less expensive to install than other paving materials. In addition, it is far less susceptible to cracking than other types of paving materials. Lastly, it is very durable, allowing it to last for years without requiring a lot of maintenance.

Whether you are looking for a new residential driveway or resurfacing your current one, you should seek the help of a trusted paving contractor. The right choice can mean the difference between a beautiful and functional driveway and a disastrous one. Moreover, a good paving company will be able to answer all of your questions and address all of your concerns, helping you get the most out of your paving budget.
