The key to lasting pavement is proper drainage, construction techniques, and quality materials. Whether it’s for a walkway, road, or asphalt driveway here in Central Florida, creating proper drainage will prevent potholes and cracking.
Asphalt’s greatest nemesis is water infiltration. The design and installation of pavement should take into account the slope and drainage. A lasting drainage system takes into account subheading and surface drainage.
What’s the secret to a pavement that last for years without any problems?
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.
The quality and type of asphalt mix used for a project are vital for proper surface drainage. An intact, impermeable surface creates a protected subgrade. Which means water won’t pool near the edges and water will drain properly, protecting the subgrade.
