Asphalt Overlay of Entire Parking Lot + Small Area of Remove & Replace
About this Paving Project in La Habra Ca.
This month Empire Parking Lot Services was asked to do an asphalt overlay on a small office park located in the city of La Habra Ca. La Habra is a very small city in the northwestern corner of Orange County, California, and is home to about 62,000 people. Many businesses are located in La Habra as well, including our customer at Castor Engineering Inc. They specialize in the manufacturing of valves and solenoids for cryogenic applications in the aerospace, industrial, and commercial industries. Man that sounds complex! Their parking lot was pretty hammered when they called us and it needed more than just patching to get it back into shape. Read on to learn more about this asphalt overlay project.
About this Asphalt Overlay
Like we had mentioned above, this parking lot was in pretty bad shape. Our customer had a firm budget and we needed to design the repairs to get the most bang for their buck. The first thing we did was to deal with the largest area of damaged asphalt in the middle of their parking lot. We started by removing approximately 640 square feet of failed asphalt paving that was too deteriorated to be saved. Once removed, we hauled the old asphalt away to be recycled. Next we did some asphalt grinding to the tune of 70 square feet. We opted to grind the asphalt using our CAT Skid Steer with our PC306B cold planer attachment. We use this equipment because it is specifically designed for small paving jobs that need to be restored economically. With the failed asphalt removed, and the rough areas smoothed via grinding, we started the process of paving back the failed area first. On all new paving areas we always install it using multiple lifts of asphalt. Once the new pave area was completely installed all that was left to do was to install the 1″ asphalt overlay over the entire parking lot. The lot was only 4200 square feet, and the new layer of asphalt was installed in a single lift. We opted to machine apply the asphalt even though it was on the smaller side. The reason for this is it leaves a better and smoother finish than a tractor / loader can. With the new asphalt laid down, Our crew compacted the asphalt using plate compactors and a roller. The whole asphalt paving project took around 7 hours to complete and came out great! The next day our striping division came in and repainted all of the existing lines back to their original layout.
