To achieve a quality new paved surface, a solid foundation is of the utmost importance. The foundation for Finley’s new asphalt construction is crushed aggregate mined from a local rock quarry.
Our experienced grading crews install the stone and prepare the subbase in preparation for the installation of the new asphalt.
For new projects asphalt is typically installed in two layers. When new projects are being constructed the stone and base layer of asphalt is installed so that the project can be built off of a solid, clean surface.
The base layer consists of larger stones for strength and is thicker than the surface layer. After the construction activities have been completed, the final layer of asphalt can be installed. This is known as the surface course asphalt.
