We can't have that. That's why we like to get our hands in the dirt.
The final outcome of a surfacing project hinges on the care invested in prep work.While some contractors may skimp on the front end, ASI never will. From the drainage to the compaction to the slopes and weight bearing characteristics of the soil, every detail impacts the end result.
It has to be right.
Hire ASI to do your grading and here's how we get your property ready – the right way.
Debris Removal & Demolition
Before we lay paving, the project area must be free of debris. We reuse and recycle materials wherever possible for environmentally friendly project outcomes.
- Brush, shrubs and other organic debris will be removed and mulched;
- Current asphalt and concrete will be demolished and recycled;
- Structures and other debris will be cleared as needed.
Rough Grading & Sloping
Hire ASI for grading to prep your subsurface for a smooth, level and precise base that sets the stage for a flawless surface.
Once the area is cleared, ASI digs in with rough grading.
We coordinate with surveyors to stake streets, pads, slopes, curbs and walkways before the utilities are installed.
We also follow their specifications for proper drainage and runoff. No matter how torrential the downpour, we don't want your tenants or employees wading through 5 inches of water to get to the front door. We make sure that doesn't happen.
To prevent soil settling and resulting dips and bumps in your asphalt or cracks in your concrete, we can stabilize soft soil with mixtures of lime or cement to help reduce its swelling tendencies, increase water absorption, and strengthen its load-bearing characteristics.
Months may have passed since we did the rough grading and after countless contractors, sub contractors, projects, and excavations, including the laying of underground utilities, it's time for us to return and do the final fine grading to smooth things out once again and remove debris and soil that may have collected during that time.
