When the weather warms up into the 70s, the flowers are blossoming, and the trees are greening, you know that spring has arrived. What does that mean for businesses? Many things, not the least of which is pavement installation and maintenance. If your company has a paving project in mind, spring is one of the best times to do it. Learn more about the benefits of commercial asphalt paving in spring below.
The Best Time for Commercial Asphalt Paving
Spring through fall is the best time to perform asphalt paving projects, and even better are the times of late spring and early fall, when the weather is about 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperature and weather conditions must be right when working on asphalt pavement. The pavement itself must be a certain temperature when installers lay it, between 275 and 300 degrees Fahrenheit, and it must remain hot enough for pavers to work with it and form a sound foundation.
The ambient temperature must be at least 50 degrees for the paving project to succeed. 70-degree weather strikes the best balance between hot and cold for asphalt paving. In addition, it must not be too windy and it must not rain. All in all, spring is a great time to lay and refresh roads and parking lots, and in Maryland, this time would be April-May.
Commercial Asphalt Paving in Spring
Asphalt paving is the installation of asphalt roads, driveways, paths, parking lots, and more.

In spring, you can begin your asphalt paving project with us, whether that is laying brand new asphalt or replacing old pavement.

Asphalt Maintenance & Repair
Are you looking to make your asphalt pavement smooth and sound? Now is a great time to do it. In the winter, cold patch asphalt can temporarily fix potholes and cracks, but in warmer weather, you can use warm or hot asphalt for a longer-lasting repair. Commercial asphalt paving in spring covers crack-filling, milling, overlaying, patching, and sealcoating.
