About Asphalt Installations


Commercial property owners oftentimes confront the challenge of maintaining their structures and edifices to guarantee their longevity, functionality, and visual appeal. This includes infrastructural maintenance and installations with a significant focus on improving the properties’ exterior aesthetics like constructing or renovating parking lots, driveways, or walkways. A common solution lies in using asphalt. Asphalt installations are highly desirable due to its durability, cost-effectiveness, and simplicity in application. This detailed guide explores the vast world of asphalt installations, from the process, benefits, to essential maintenance practices.

Asphalt Driveway Resurfacing

Asphalt driveway resurfacing plays a crucial role in the lifespan of a driveway. It helps in restoring the worn-out surface, giving it a brand new look and feel. The resurfacing process involves removing the top layer of the existing asphalt and replacing it with a fresh one. It fixes minor cracks or potholes, thereby drastically improving the appearance of your commercial property and enhancing its longevity. Regular asphalt resurfacing helps to avoid pricey repairs in the future, providing an essential aspect of asphalt maintenance.

Asphalt Maintenance

Prolonging the life and quality of your asphalt installation involves regular and meticulous maintenance. Whether you’ve just installed your driveway or had it resurfaced, maintenance is key to keeping it in top-notch condition. Regular asphalt maintenance includes timely crack filling, sealcoating, and fixing potholes or any form of wear and tear. These practices not only help maintain the visual appeal of your property but also strengthen the resistance of the asphalt to water, weather conditions, and heavy traffic – extending its lifespan.

Asphalt Driveway Installation

Asphalt driveway installation is a popular choice among commercial property owners due to its numerous benefits. Durability, cost-effectiveness, ease of installation, and simple maintenance are among these appealing advantages. The installation process involves several stages from the preliminary excavation, grading, adding a sub-base, a binder layer, to finally a top layer of asphalt. Engaging professionals in the process ensures a high-quality, long-lasting, and appealing driveway.

Asphalt Installation overview

Undeniably, asphalt installation is an integral part of commercial property improvement. Not limited to driveways alone, it extends to parking lots, walkways, and other exterior property surfaces. The installation process calls for a comprehensive understanding of site preparation, appropriate materials, and the right technique. Armed with these, one can achieve a durable, aesthetic, and high-quality asphalt pavement. Moreover, the fast curing time of asphalt makes the installation a more convenient and quicker process compared to other popular materials such as concrete.

Benefits of Asphalt Sealcoating Services

Last but not least is the importance of asphalt sealcoating services. Sealcoating provides a layer of protection blockading the damaging effects of sun, rain and other elements from the asphalt underneath. This preventative maintenance is crucial for prolonging the life of the asphalt, enhancing its appearance, and reducing long-term repair costs. Sealcoating services ensure the longevity of your investment, by slowing down oxidation, preventing water penetration, and resisting the damage caused by chemicals or other corrosive substances.


In conclusion, asphalt installation serves as a sustainable and visually appealing solution for commercial properties. Asphalt driveway resurfacing and consistent asphalt maintenance can greatly extend the life and aesthetic appeal of these installations. Furthermore, professional asphalt sealcoating services play a crucial role in mitigating damage caused by harsh environmental factors. Evidently, understanding these procedures and benefits can equip commercial property owners to make well-informed decisions about their property improvements.

All these advantages can make asphalt the perfect solution for your commercial property’s exterior needs. If you require high-quality asphalt driveway installation, resurfacing, or maintenance services, don’t hesitate to contact the experts in your city or region. They are equipped with the necessary skills, experience, and resources to deliver excellent results that exceed your expectations.

About Harrison, Michigan


Harrison was first designated as the new centralized location of the county seat of Clare County in 1877. It would become a replacement for Farwell, which was the first county seat when Clare County was formally organized in 1871. The Flint and Pere Marquette Railroad platted the village in 1879 and set aside property for a new county government after the previous courthouse in Farwell burned down. The Harrison post office opened on January 27, 1880 and was named after former president William Henry Harrison. The new community incorporated as a village in 1885 and later as a city in 1891.


According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 4.03 square miles (10.44 km), of which 3.71 square miles (9.61 km2) is land and 0.31 square miles (0.80 km) is water.

The city’s motto is “20 Lakes in 20 Minutes” due its proximity to numerous lakes. Budd Lake is mostly located within the city limits, while the northern coastline extends into Hayes Township. The only other lake within the city limits is Little Long Lake, which also extends into Hayes Township.
