For paving contractors, residential and commercial paving services have some differences in approach, though a reputable paving company will always treat their customers with the same service. One of these paving companies is Advance Asphalt Inc, Concord CA’s most experienced paving experts, who care for both local homeowners and business owners.
Finding a paving company who has experience with both residential and commercial paving is a must because it shows they are flexible in their approach to pavement. This doesn’t mean that the two types of paving services are exactly the same.
Residential Vs Commercial Paving
Here’s a brief overview of how commercial and residential paving projects may have different priorities.
Underneath all asphalt pavement is a base layer made of gravel and other aggregates. The depth of this layer needs to be thick for pavement that will see heavy loads, like commercial pavement. Residential pavement can take thinner gravel and asphalt layers.
Asphalt for commercial applications that will see higher traffic needs to be extra durable, where driveway paving may focus more on things like design or aesthetic.
Obviously a residential property owner would have less money to invest in pavement, but luckily, most residential applications, even private sports courts, use less paving materials and labor to construct than a larger commercial paving project.
Because a commercial parking lot covers literally more ground than an asphalt driveway, a parking lot needs a more extensive drainage system to avoid puddles and asphalt deterioration. Drainage is important for asphalt driveways as well, but it’s easier to fix with a simple trench drain.
