Our professional asphalt-laying process

1. Determine soil type and excavate

Before asphalt is laid, it is necessary to:
  • NDetermine the soil type to accurately plan what type of excavation will be needed
  • NExcavate to a depth of 30 to 40 cm, depending on the type of soil.

The soil in the Greater Montreal area where we work is generally made up of clay, sand, humus and limestone.

  • NEB-5: asphalt sieved to 5 mm, used for fine corrections. These types of asphalt are only a tiny fraction of those available, as the manufacturing formulas vary widely.

3. Creating the base

A solid base is crucial to making asphalt paving last a long time. We use quality materials such as mg20 or 0-3/4″ crushed stone to create a sturdy base.

If you are installing a paving other than asphalt, you’ll need a top layer of sand or stone screenings, and a geotextile membrane.

2. Determine the appropriate type and grade of asphalt

Asphalt is made of bitumen, aggregates and fine sand. Available types of asphalt include:

  • NEB-20: asphalt mix sieved to 20 mm, used as a base layer
  • NEB-14: asphalt mix with rocks sieved to 14 mm, used as a base or intermediate layer
  • NEB-10s: asphalt mix with rocks sieved to 10 mm, used as a surface layer
  • NEB-10c: enriched asphalt mix with rocks sieved to 10 mm, used as a surface or correction layer

4. Installing water drainage slopes

We’ll assess where to install water drainage slopes to prevent water accumulation and to protect your pavement.

Strategically-installed water drainage slopes are essential for all asphalt paving projects.
