Introduction: A Comprehensive Guide to Asphalt Installations

Asphalt installations for commercial properties are an essential aspect of infrastructure development and property management. Given their durability, cost-effectiveness, and aesthetic appeal, these installations are a smart choice for a wide range of applications such as pavements, parking lots, roadways, and more. This comprehensive guide aims to equip you with all you need to know about the process, benefits, and important aspects of asphalt installations, including supporting aspects like asphalt driveway resurfacing, asphalt resurfacing, asphalt maintenance, and asphalt sealcoating services.

What Is Asphalt Installation?

Asphalt installation is a process of applying a layer of asphalt. commonly used for constructing roads, driveways, and parking lots. This process involves multiple stages; grading and preparatory work, base application, and finally, an asphalt layer’s installation. Each step is crucial in maintaining the strength, longevity, and functionality of the structure, and thus, precision and expertise are requisites.

The Process of Asphalt Driveway Installation

Asphalt driveway installation typically involves several stages, starting with a detailed inspection and design process. It further includes the removal of the existing surface, preparation of the new base, installation of the asphalt layer, and finally, the finishing touches like sealcoating and lining. This process demands proficiency to ensure the installed driveway is durable, functional and maintains an aesthetic appeal.

Asphalt Driveway Resurfacing and Asphalt Resurfacing

Asphalt resurfacing and asphalt driveway resurfacing are extremely important treatments to extend the lifespan of asphalt installations. Essentially, this process entails removing the top layer of the existing asphalt and replacing it with a new surface layer. This extends the longevity of the installation and enhances its appearance, saving significant rebuilding costs.

Asphalt Maintenance

Just as crucial as a proper installation is the consistent, regular asphalt maintenance. This includes timely inspections for any damage, regular cleaning, sealcoating, and prompt repairs. Ignoring these could lead to the degradation of the surface and the need for costly replacements or renovations. Proper maintenance serves to extend the service life of your asphalt installations while keeping them aesthetically pleasing.

Asphalt Sealcoating Services

Asphalt sealcoating services are crucial for the protection and maintenance of asphalt installations. This process involves applying a protective coating to the asphalt that effectively seals it from harmful elements like sun rays, rain, and hazardous chemicals. Aside from prolonging the life of the asphalt surface, sealcoating also enhances the appearance of your commercial property.

Benefits of Asphalt Installations

Asphalt installations come with a host of benefits. They are cost-effective, being less expensive than alternative materials and easy to maintain. Asphalt’s durability and resilience make it suitable for heavy traffic areas, such as business parking lots and roads.

To top it all, asphalt contributes to better water drainage and minimizes ice during winter, thereby enhancing safety.

About Preston Corners, Michigan


Shelby Township was set off by an act of the Michigan Territorial Legislature on April 12, 1827, and a civil government was organized the following May. It originally included the area that is now Sterling Heights, which was set off March 17, 1835, as the township of Jefferson, renamed to Sterling on March 6, 1838. Utica, located on the southern edge of the township, originally incorporated as a village on March 9, 1838, although that corporation was dissolved soon afterwards. The village was incorporated for a second time on May 10, 1877.

The village of Disco (42°41′02″N 83°02′04″W / 42.68389°N 83.03444°W / 42.68389; -83.03444 (Disco)) was located at what is now the junction of 24 Mile Road and Van Dyke Road. and was platted in 1849. The community never incorporated, although the local high school, the Disco Academy, gained some local recognition and a post office named Disco operated from May 5, 1854, until July 31, 1906. Only a few homes and a namesake on old county road maps remain of this now forgotten historic place. See also: “The Lost Village of Disco” on the Shelby Township Historical Society website.
