What to expect

When you choose Challenge Asphalt for your parking lot installation, you get our best-in-class equipment, decades of experience, and commitment to your vision and budget. Before we pave or resurface, we consider the lot’s physical characteristics, usage factors (including traffic and flow patterns), and safety requirements. After this, we grade and compact the subsoil to 95% relative density. Then, working with a soil engineer, we use the traffic index to create a roadbed of crushed rock and sand, which we lay between 4 and 8 inches thick.

We then use our self-propelled paving machine to lay the hot asphalt between 2.5 and 4 inches thick and roll it to compact. If more than 4 inches, we complete multiple lifts. This allows us to achieve a smooth, tight-textured finish for a lot that lasts upwards of 20 years.
