Orlando’s Top Paving & Asphalt Repair

Your parking lot or driveway is one of the first thing clients and visitors see as they drive up to your business or home. How does it look? Does it have unsightly cracks, potholes, fading or even slow to drain? These are problems that can discourage guests and decrease your property value. 

Let’s face it, nothing lasts forever, that includes pavement. Turning a blind eye to the wear and tear can lead to bigger and more costly problems. Does your pavement need updating?  Look for these signs:

Surface cracks 

Cracks in the pavement that are less than 1/4 inch wide may be an easy fix. But larger cracks can be a larger issue. The repairs depend on the cracks, you can rely on the team at Swell Construction for an honest assessment. 

Potholes

More than just an eye-sore, potholes can damage vehicles and even be a liability.

Potholes can be the tip of an ugly iceberg. The water that collects in the pothole from the rain, seeps into the undersurface, softening the foundation of the driveway or parking lot. This also leads to costly damage and cracks. 

Fading and stains

Fading and stains are unsightly and inevitable in our environment. Whether it is sealcoating or an easy renovation, it will keep it looking attractive and protect it from future fading and stains. 

Slow to drain 

If you have water collecting, instead of draining, you could have a bigger problem than you think. The situation needs to be remedied as soon as possible. 

Properly installed subdrainage is responsible for strong pavement, lasting well into the future. To preserve the subgrade drainage pipes should be installed with filters. This allows a consistent flow of water and contain small particles of soil within the subgrade. Proper materials are also important to ensure potholes don’t happen in the future, or any sinking or shifting in the foundation. 

Missing or loose pieces around the boarder

Chunks of missing pavement are definitely not attractive and will need to be repaired by removing the damaged places and replaced.

Site Development, Grading, Land Clearing, Excavation

Whether you are breaking ground on a new Orlando, Kissimmee, or Clermont subdivision, business, or single family home, quality land grading is more important than you think. 

There is water just about everywhere here in Central Florida. From the lakes and ponds, to the daily torrential downpours. All that rain water has to go somewhere and it should be away from your building. Water drainage probably isn’t something that comes to mind when you drive by an office complex or beautiful housing subdivision, but when the land isn’t graded properly, the water damage can be significant. 

When the land isn’t graded properly water can flow towards a building. When water pools around a foundation the pressure can result in cracks and structural damage. Threatening the structural integrity of the building. 

This standing water also encourages insect infestation and contributes to the breeding of mosquitoes. 

Grading ensures water is being diverted correctly, which prevents land erosion and proper drainage. Whether it is a system of pitch angles, piping or swales, it can prevent flooding and a lot of headaches. It also takes neighboring properties into consideration, protecting them from flooding. 

Grading sets the tone for the entire construction project 

Starting with a topographic survey, then initiate a plan. To prevent erosion of the soil, a ‘buffer zone’ should be established. 

A local professional grading service will know the current regulations that need to be followed. 

Back fill around the building’s foundation is also important. Too little and you can end up with an insect and termite problem and too much and you have serious issues with moisture. 

Proper grading also sets the foundation for beautiful landscaping. The aesthetics of the completed project will come together when grading is finished. 

It is important to hire a expert grading service
