When Must a Paving Project Be Postponed?

No matter how much planning you do for your pavement repair or remodel, you can’t always trust the weather forecast. There are times when a paving project must be put on hold and rescheduled due to common, uncontrollable elements like rain, wind, snow, and more. Additionally, there are non-elemental circumstances that can also impede paving plans.

Continue reading to learn the most common situations that may require you to delay your paving project.

Rain and Precipitation

When it comes to paving and precipitation, the two do not go hand-in-hand. You cannot move forward with a paving project if it is raining, snowing, hailing, sleeting, or even lightly sprinkling. In fact, any type of wet conditions are not well-suited for paving, neither asphalt nor concrete. For instance, if the ground is still wet from a storm that came through a day before, paving plans cannot, and should not, commence.

So why no paving in wetness? Asphalt mixtures contain oil, which repels water. These are not conducive properties if you want to get asphalt to adhere to the ground. If you were to lay asphalt while it was raining or wet, the pavement would develop cracks, and holes as it cures, and quickly lead to pothole formation and similar exponential damages. Overall, rain and precipitation have negative effects on the outcome of a paving project. See our blog, “Will Rain Affect My Newly Laid Asphalt?” to learn more about this topic.

Inclement Weather Conditions

If you have a large-scale paving project in the works, and the time is set to begin during an active tornado warning, there is a good chance it will be delayed. Mild weather is the best weather to perform any paving project, regardless of size or scope. As for large-scale projects, more kinds of heavier machinery and equipment are used, and more staff are needed to carry out the job. This means that hazardous weather conditions, such as tornado warnings, can put contractors at risk, as well as, ultimately affect the outcome of a paving remodel.

Changed Minds

Another common reason why a paving project might need to be postponed is when the client changes their mind about the scope or design of the plan. Since readdressing a previously-agreed upon paving project will mean rewriting the specifications, rerouting the approach, and perhaps even changing the bid, it’s not something that is done last minute on the side of the contractors. Paving contractors will need time to adjust any changes that you might want to make before the project day comes, and this is perfectly acceptable. A good paving company will care more about your ultimate satisfaction than rearranging their schedule by a day or two.

The General Process of Concrete Installation

When your commercial property is in need of concrete installation or restoration, it is wise to learn what to expect from the process. Your lot is an investment, so you want to do whatever you can to be prepared to obtain the best possible results. The first place to start is hiring a reputable and experienced paving company to ensure that your concrete install job is carried out precisely to code; otherwise, you can face premature repairs and replacements down the line. After all, the number one cause of concrete defectiveness is poor or improper installation.

Once you hire a licensed, bonded, and insured pavement installation company, your concrete installation process will begin. The process differs from company to company, but the general steps tend to remain universal. Continue below to learn the basic process of professional concrete installation, as well as, who to trust for your concrete paving needs in Indianapolis.

Concrete Installation Steps

STEP 1: On-Site Estimate

To begin, a company estimator will come to your property and perform an on-site evaluation. During this evaluation, they will confirm the condition of your current grounds or pavement, and configure a plan for installation. At the end of the evaluation, the estimator will provide a detailed, written quote outlining all of the recommended modifications and work needed for the overall project. For instance, your estimator might tell you at this time that extra work needs to be done to reinforce the ground beneath the installation site since concrete performs better on solid, stable soil.

STEP 2: Site Preparation

Once you agree to have the work done, the paving crews will arrive on the scheduled work day. They will use this initial day to organize all the materials, set up all of the equipment and machinery,and prepare the site for concrete installation. Contractors will typically test the machinery to make sure everything is working properly,and even go over the gravel base a few times to check the quality and condition of their equipment. Once they know their fleets are ready for paving, they can begin any structural work that’s needed, like ground reinforcements and more.

STEP 3: Screeding and Smoothing

Paving contractors are likely to start out with a technique known as “screeding”, which is basically leveling the concrete if any exists on the site already. To do this, pavers use flat boards and other screeding tools to smooth out the concrete after it has been placed to help with flattening. Concrete dries fast, so in this same step, pavers will utilize other tools and techniques to smooth and even out the concrete as it cures.

STEP 4: Curing

Once the concrete is laid and cured, the pavers will then apply a concrete curing agent to the surface. This product is designed to slow down the rate of water-loss over a month’s time, which will render stronger, longer-lasting, and better-looking concrete. It takes 7 to 10 days for newly laid concrete to fully cure. During this time, it is important to keep all foot and vehicular traffic off of it, including animals.

STEP 5: Clean Up and Check Up

When the paving crew is finished with the last step, they will clean up their work site, pack up all of their equipment and machinery, and head off! It is also standard practice for them to implement post-service checkups, both on-site and over the phone.
