Pavement Planning Considerations

A new pavement project can feel like a daunting task, especially when you have no idea where to start. Spring is an excellent time of year to start a new pavement project, because these seasons provide an ideal climate. If you are considering beginning a paving project this Spring or Summer, now is the time to start planning! Pro Pave Inc. has rounded up a few helpful considerations before you start your next pavement planning project below.


Pavement Planning Considerations


Step One: Assess the Situation

Before you can begin any planning, it’s helpful to know where you stand. We recommend that you start by walking around the entire property you’d like to have paved or repaired. If this is a new paved surface, there are many considerations that a reputable company can help you assess. If this is a repair project, then we recommend you take note of which areas need to be resurfaced or fixed. Look along the perimeter of the property. Are there any drainage issues? Are you seeing cracks or holes anywhere in the pavement? Have an idea of how many cracks, holes or different areas will need to be repaired. 


Step Two: Do Your Research

There are many kinds of repairs that can be done to fix a pavement surface. From crack fillers to sealers, or even sealcoating, start familiarizing yourself with what these processes entail. If you want to do your research, we’ve written several past blog posts on these different topics. Having a better understanding of what to expect from your project will help as you map out what your plan looks like.


Step Three: Budget for Your Project

It’s a good rule of thumb to perform some kind of maintenance on your pavement project every few years. There are maintenance options like sealcoating that can make a vast difference in the extended life of your pavement surface. A pavement project can seem like a big investment, but that’s because it’s one that will last you! With the right installation and yearly maintenance, you are looking at an investment that is going to last you for decades to come. Make sure that you budget in yearly maintenance expenses, like sealcoating mentioned above. You should also account for regular street sweeps or crack sealing when you see cracks appear.
