Agricultural Road Improves Fallbrook CA

El Camino Asphalt is committed to providing superior asphalt paving solutions to businesses and individuals, enhancing infrastructure and operational efficiency across Southern California. A recent client from Fallbrook, an agricultural property owner with a thriving avocado grove, faced challenges with his roadway, which was not equipped to handle the frequent traffic of heavy trucks and farm equipment essential for shipping his produce.

El Camino Asphalt: Paving the Way for Agriculture in Fallbrook, CA

The commercial property owner recognized the need for a durable road that could withstand the rigors of agricultural operations and reached out to El Camino for a reliable asphalt paving solution. The absence of existing pavement posed an opportunity to build a road tailored to the specific needs of the agricultural site.

The process began with thoroughly evaluating the terrain to ensure proper drainage and foundation stability—key factors in constructing a long-lasting roadway. Next, our team moved on to grading the ground, a crucial step to level the surface and prepare it for paving. We then laid a robust base layer of crushed stone to support the pavement layers and ensure it remains resilient under the weight of heavy vehicles.

Following the base layer, El Camino applied a high-quality asphalt mix designed to be tough and durable. The new pavement was meticulously compacted and smoothed, creating a seamless surface ideal for heavy loads and frequent traffic typical of farm operations.

Although not utilized in this project, El Camino provides line striping and pavement marking services to improve road functionality and safety further. In addition to asphalt paving, line striping services are essential for clearly defining lanes and promoting safe navigation on parking lots and streets. Additionally, our team is adept at painting parking lots to meet ADA compliance standards, ensuring accessibility for all visitors and workers.asphalt paving Fallbrook

The sturdy pavement ensures that trucks and farm equipment can travel more efficiently, reducing the risk of vehicle damage and delays in shipping schedules.

Paving Project Spotlight: Creating a Safe Space Villa St. Joseph in Orange, CA

We recently participated in a community construction project led by Mercy Housing California (MHC) and the Sisters of Saint Joseph. In recent years, they have been working on the “Motherhouse,” a large brick building that has been the cornerstone of their campus in Orange since 1960. In a move that speaks volumes of their generosity, the Sisters partnered with MHC to transform the Motherhouse into Villa St. Joseph, affordable housing for Orange County seniors and others in need.

asphalt milling and paving OrangeEl Camino Asphalt is proud to be part of such a great community project, so we were happy to take over parking lot paving services for the community. We began by removing the exiting surface. Asphalt milling uncovered a wet and yielding base layer that threatened the pavement’s structure. To address this, we recommended a 5% cement treatment to stabilize the base before parking lot paving. Once we applied it, we paved the entire area to a four inch depth to ensure durability, especially in areas where the existing pavement was thinner.

We saved MHC thousands of dollars in dump fees and trucking expenses by recommending cement treatment, and the rest of the asphalt milling and paving project went off without a hitch. Our ability to efficiently complete the installation allowed the parking lot to be ready before the start of the spring semester, minimizing disruption to campus operations.

Road Overlay and Asphalt Milling in Santa Monica CA

The asphalt paving company most trusted by developers and commercial construction firms in Los Angeles County California, El Camino Asphalt, recently performed an asphalt milling and overlay project in Santa Monica CA. These services are vital for parking lots and roadways to keep them looking good for longer, and we were happy to help the residents of a new condo building stay safe on the road in front of their units.

Asphalt milling involves using specialized paving equipment to grind away the top few layers of pavement, exposing the layer underneath and leaving a texture that allows for greater adhesion of a new asphalt layer. Applying this top coat of new pavement is called asphalt overlay, and it can be performed on any pavement that is structurally sound. A roadway or parking lot that has lots of cracks, rutting, depressions, or issues with the subgrade isn’t a good candidate, as those issues need to be addressed first.

On the roadway in Santa Monica CA, El Camino Asphalt milled away the top layer and then applied 2 inches of asphalt before compressing and smoothing the surface. We safely routed traffic around the project and completed it quickly so the construction contractors could get back to work.

El Camino Asphalt is the trusted paving company in Santa Monica CA for pavement restoration services like asphalt milling and overlay because we not only have the right paving equipment but because we understand the needs of general contractors and real estate developers.

Santa Ana CA Parking Lot Paving, Sealcoating, and Striping

If your Santa Ana CA commercial property needs a new parking lot or needs restoration on your existing asphalt parking lot, El Camino Asphalt is the company to call. We have over 35 years experience in commercial paving on parking lots, roadways, and more. With our extensive experience and state of the art asphalt paving equipment, we can get your parking lot completed in no time so you can get to work.

We recently completed a new parking lot for a school in Santa Ana CA, expanding their existing parking lot and creating new asphalt play areas. We started with new asphalt paving, laying down several layers of aggregates and asphalt that we compacted for a smooth, even pavement. Our experienced paving crew made sure this new asphalt was seamless with existing pavement so there was no danger of tripping and falling. We then applied a sealcoating over the whole area to protect it against wear and give it a dark black color.

Our Santa Ana CA paving job still wasn’t a parking lot and play area, though. To make it useful, it needed traffic paint to create parking areas and play areas, so we used our parking lot line striping skills. Since the sealcoating had created the perfect surface for painting, we were able to easily lay down parking stripes, no parking zone signs, curb painting, and loading zones in three colors. In addition to that, we also painted basketball courts and other sport courts with perfectly even lines, as well as numbers and letters.

Asphalt Parking Lot Mixes and Subgrades

Property owners may not know much about asphalt parking lot mixes and subgrades, but the trusted local paving experts certainly do! In La Habra CA, El Camino Asphalt is that paving company. We have decades of experience with asphalt paving, so we understand how different asphalt mixes and gravel subgrades work to create that hard, black pavement that’s perfect for roadways and parking lots.

Let the asphalt experts from El Camino Asphalt explain some of the technical ins and outs of asphalt mixes and how they affect the look and use of the pavement.

Parking Lot Paving: Asphalt Mixes and Subgrades

What is an asphalt mix?

Asphalt isn’t just one solid material, but a mix of liquid and solid materials. Different sizes of gravel, crushed stones, or recycled asphalt called aggregates are suspended in an emulsion of bitumen, a petroleum product, and additives that is liquid at high temperatures and solid once it cools.

Why do we need different asphalt mixes?

Asphalt has a wide variety of uses, so the type of asphalt itself can be specially mixed to ensure prime performance in any situation, including:

  • Layered asphalt for heavy traffic areas
  • Driveway asphalt designed for longevity
  • Textured pavement for a high end look
  • Water-permeable asphalt for walkways
  • Sealcoating with thin asphalt binders and fine aggregates to protect asphalt surface

Importance of Subgrade

Another hugely important aspect of asphalt paving is the subgrade or lower layers made up of aggregates of various sizes. These base layers are vital to provide a stable base for long-lasting asphalt pavement. Experienced paving contractors will grade and compact these layers so that they don’t shift or erode.
