We have paved thousands of parking lots, most of them with asphalt because pavement is tough and durable. But it does not last forever. The effects of the elements and constant traffic will eventually wear it down. So you want to make sure it is built correctly. We have the experience and professionalism to provide the highest quality asphalt paving services available. We regularly work with engineering and testing firms that verify this. They come and test the compaction and moisture content of the gravel base and the asphalt, as well as take core samples to verify the thickness of the pavement.
OUR TOP SERVICES INCLUDE:
• parking lot new construction
• parking lot overlay paving

STARTING THE PAVING PROCESS
The first step is having André or David of Lambert Bros. Paving come to your location and do a thorough asphalt analysis and evaluation of the lot. This is followed by a comprehensive estimate for the parking lot paving or repairs.
Lambert Bros. Paving has all their own equipment and a stellar crew to complete any paving job. We start with the base preparation. A solid foundation is vital. All soft or wet material must be removed or allowed to dry. Sometimes a stabilizing and/or a separation fabric will be recommended before building up with the gravel base.
BASE AND GRADING
To insure that the parking lot will last 20 - 30 years or longer we install and compact the proper amount of gravel (typically for a parking lot it is 300mm or a foot of crushed gravel). Without a solid foundation to build on there is little hope that the pavement will last as long as it should.
Our crew will use track skid steers or a bull dozer to spread the gravel to the correct elevation, and follow with a grader to get everything fine-tuned, ensuring that the surface will drain as it should. The base is then watered and compacted with appropriately sized rollers so we can regularly get 98 - 100 percent compaction.
ASPHALT LAYING AND COMPACTING PROCESS
Lambert Bros. Paving has their own dump trucks to bring the asphalt to the site so the paving process can proceed smoothly and quickly. We try to avoid having any more cold seams than necessary. Once the asphalt is laid down, then the all-important step of compacting the asphalt is started. We have a dozen rollers on hand to ensure that we get the correct compaction i.e. a strong and durable finish that is smooth. For the edges of the pavement we hand tamp at a forty-five degree angle to add strength to better support weight from vehicles.
