Installing a Parking Lot
Paving a Driveway
Grading a Driveway
Asphalt Pavement a deep black, resilient,water repelling substance (liquid when hot and solid when cooled) covers around 94 percent of the paved roads in the USA. Driveways, parking lots, racetracks, airport runways, tennis courts and basketball courts paved by asphalt are smooth, solid, sound deadening driving surface promoting movement of people and goods safely and quickly.
Choosing an asphalt contractor is difficult and even risky. Protect yourself- contact at least 3 rock solid asphalt contractors to compare cost estimates for paving services. Asphalt Contractors are rock solid and worthy of a closer look if they carry the following traits: They have spent years providing reputable services in your shared community; will openly share customer reviews and Better Business Bureau ratings; they are licensed, bonded, insured and offer free project consultations with firm estimates.
Note: All service estimates should be written up with details of the project, including some or all of the following: grading objectives, subbase thickness, asphalt thickness, size of area to be paved, absolute total costs of the rendered services projected including taxes and any payment terms. Lastly, a warranty offered, complete, with understandable terms and conditions.
Commercial Asphalt Paving
Grading a Parking Lot
Paving a Parking Lot
First impressions of a customer or client as they cautiously traverse a muddy gravel-based parking lot is hard to counter- even when a pleasant interior for shopping or service awaits. Seniors will definitely pass by such a business rather than take the substantial risk to weave through a broken and crumbling parking lot. Many clients will pass by a business without dedicated parking instead of finding close parking along the street. Many clients just don’t want the trouble of searching for a parking spot or they don’t like to parallel park. Take advantage of our complementary, no hidden commitments, inspection and let Jersey Strong Paving show you how affordable it can be to improve the value, appeal and safety of the gateway to your business "the parking lot".

Commercial paving of apartments, medical parks, office parks, industrial parks, schools, universities, and HOA communities all need, at some point, parking lot repair, resurfacing or restoration. Working with an experienced asphalt paver is the best action you can take to help the project move forward on schedule and budget. Inexperienced pavers quite often make errors in underestimating the materials needed or not having enough employees for the project. All of these errors in judgment will bring havoc to the jobsite- nothing will be on schedule and cost overruns will be common.
The major preventable reason asphalt pavements prematurely fail is because of inadequate grading that allows water infiltration under the pavement surface. The land surrounding the asphalt pavement must be graded to flow water away from the pavement so it can’t erode the stable base. Other reasons include insufficient gravel materials laid down, careless compaction of the asphalt pavement layers, a base asphalt mix, laying asphalt mix that is too cold and laying asphalt in rain. These considerations are paramount during our design process and then correctly implemented to provide our clients with robust worry-free parking lots or roads. Note: a base asphalt mix is typically made with larger stones and less amounts of asphalt cement (tar) and sand which produces a rough surface. A good surface asphalt is made with smaller stones and more asphalt cement and sand which produces a smooth surface.
Resurfacing or Overlaying a parking lot is less costly than fully reconstructing a paved surface, and typically takes less time. This is a great option for large parking lots that have a lot of surface wear and need asphalt repairs. However, the areas that now puddle will again puddle since in most cases, the grade cannot be alter by just paving an overlay. Life expectancy for an overlay or resurfaced parking lot is 8-10 years if properly maintained. To learn more about resurfacing a parking lot, click here!

Commercial Asphalt Sealcoating
We offer application of all types of sealcoating to protect and waterproof asphalt pavement from the ravishes of UV rays, oil spills, gas spills and rain water- these are common oxidizers that slowly destroy the asphalt binder (the black glue that holds the crushed rock together). As the asphalt pavement becomes light grey, it loses flexibility and becomes brittle enough to start breaking up as vehicles are driven on it. Sealcoating, periodically, will keep flexibility in the pavement and stop pavement breakups for almost double the original expected lifespan of the parking lot. After the free inspection, we will recommend a specific product that will suite the unique needs of your parking lot. Then, for clients, our professional application of the chosen sealer will seal your parking lot- producing a non-porous surface where dirt and debris easily washes off. Most commercial asphalt paving companies suggest sealcoating every 2 to 3 years.
Just Paved Driveway
From Grading To Paving
That Corridor of darkness leading to your Garage is a substantial part of the home’s view and does have quite an impact on curb appeal. A broken up, weed infested asphalt driveway states this home has not been maintained, besides the fact, that you or visitors will not have a dry smooth place to park. As soon as your driveway is showing cracks or potholes, contact a professional asphalt paver, like Jersey Strong Paving to inspect and repair it because it will only continue to deteriorate at perhaps a faster rate than before.

Asphalt pavement repairs require inspection before committing to a specific type of fix. The driveways pavement’s is a sum of its parts and each need to be examined to understand the root cause of the failure. For example, the grading of the immediate and surrounding area should direct storm water away from the pavement, tree roots may be growing under the pavement upheaval or perhaps a heavy camper is parked where the driveway is cracking. The causes of pavement breakup are many and variables exist at every home so onsite inspections are necessary. We always, when possible, suggest repair first, and offer affordable options when replacement is advised. For further information about driveway repairs, click here!
Rolling Asphalt Jersey Strong Paving NJ
New asphalt driveways can last nearly 30 years when water is directed away from the pavement and when maintained periodically with sealants. Broken-down blacktop can be grounded on site and used as base for new projects or can be recycled at an asphalt recycling plant to be incorporated or recycled into mixtures for new pavements which makes this the most earth friendly material used in construction today.

Residential Asphalt Sealcoating
As you drive through residential neighborhoods, take notice of the condition of the driveways some are in very rough shape, others look well maintained and yet others look crazed or display many fine cracks. The driveways with bumps and fine cracking happen when homeowners use blacktop sealers from the big box stores without washing down the driveway first- this causes adherence problems as well as debris showing up under the coating. The DIY homeowner may also put the product on too thick which causes the too heavy solution to escape and follow gravity- displaying a drooping rippling surface. Just like when painting a wall in your home you run into drips and waves when using too much paint.
Seriously, Jersery Strong Paving uses better sealers specifically chosen for the unique needs of your property's driveway and we're not as expensive as you may think. Prospective clients please take the opportunity, eagerly offered, for a free estimate without conditions- go to our contact page now!
