Step 2: Demolition Expertise

Demolition marks the initiation of our process. Existing surfaces, whether asphalt, concrete, or pavers, are removed to prepare for the sub-base and pavement installation. We prioritize eco-friendliness by recycling old asphalt at our specialized plants.

Step 3: Grading Perfection

Grading is critical, ensuring proper water drainage to prevent premature deterioration. The grade percentage varies based on location and landscape, which is crucial for long-lasting pavements.

Step 4: Sub-base Preparation

Beneath the : surface lies our carefully prepared sub-base, a vital component for any asphalt pavement. It shields against frost heave, provides stability, and enhances durability. We use crushed rocks or recycled materials tailored to project requirements and traffic loads.

Step 5: Seamless Connections

Creating smooth transitions between new and existing pavements, including adjacent curbs and sidewalks, is pivotal. FloorPup ensures that butt joints are seamless, offering a consistent surface for both drivers and pedestrians.

Step 6: Base Course Expertise

The base course, composed of aggregates and binders, sits atop the compacted sub-base. We meticulously spread and compact the material, enhancing strength and stability for the upcoming asphalt layer.

Step 7: Wear Course Precision

The wear course, the visible surface layer, is expertly crafted to endure traffic and environmental wear. Comprising small aggregates, sand, and liquid asphalt, this layer showcases our dedication to longevity and visual appeal.

Step 8: Precision Compaction

Compaction is crucial to stability and durability. At FloorPup, we ensure a seamless surface by securely joining asphalt-coated aggregates. This process reduces permeability and guarantees a smooth, lasting pavement.

Step 9: Finishing Touches

In the final steps, we add necessary road markings, ensuring compliance with regulations. For parking lots, we incorporate ADA-compliant parking stripes and accessibility markings, ensuring inclusivity and safety.
