How to Achieve a Perfectly Smooth Asphalt Surface

September, 27, 2020 By CASSIDY PAVING 6 min read
The goal of any asphalt installation is to have a safe, appealing, and smooth surface to drive on. Cassidy Paving understands that even the best asphalt plans can mean nothing if the finishing is not smooth and to the customer’s liking. And it should not be left up to chance, but done by true professionals with a history of customer satisfaction. Experienced asphalt paving contractors will know the process for how to achieve a perfectly smooth asphalt surface. The entire process will help determine how well that final product turns out. A smooth surface is not just about curb appeal, but it is directly related to how well it will hold up to consistent use over time and how long it will last in a desirable condition. Here’s how we get the smooth outcomes for our customers all across Massachusetts:

Following the Steps

The first way to achieve a smooth asphalt surface is to not bypass any of the important installation steps. These steps are the building blocks that will give you the results you deserve and pay for, so there should be no cutting corners by your contractor. The first step is demolition and debris removal, which is critical to maintaining an even and smooth surface. Next, the grading, sloping, and preparation of the subbase will need to be completed in that order to build on that even application. This is the leveling and surfacing of the soil that helps produce proper asphalt placement and water drainage. Preparing the areas beneath that top surface is imperative for the smooth texture later on. We will then add the binder and surface course right before the blacktop asphalt surface layer is applied. Asphalt pavement installation is more than just a pretty blacktop.

Using Proper Equipment

Another way that we obtain a perfectly smooth surface is by using the proper asphalt equipment. The materials we use and the machinery we have is paramount to the delivery of smooth blacktop. Compacting the base and surface with the job-specific rollers and compaction equipment is a very important point in this process. This final step ensures that there are no bumps or unevenness on the surface. We will use the roller as many times as needed to accomplish proper compaction. As Asphalt Magazine explains, “compaction is completed in the optimum temperature range based on the mix type, binder grade, and environmental conditions”. Our crew members are highly trained in operating the heavy machinery in all types of weather so that we can deliver optimum asphalt outcomes at any time of year.
