Constructing high-quality asphalt pavements is the cornerstone of Walbec's portfolio of services. Our experts are proficient in achieving exceptional results on projects of all sizes, including interstates, municipal roadways, commercial parking lots, feed pads, athletic tracks, and community bike trails.
As part of the Walbec Group, Payne + Dolan (P+D) and Northeast Asphalt (NEA) are industry leaders in producing asphalt products and providing pavement services throughout the Midwest. Asphalt products and pavement provide a variety of benefits, including:
- Cost-effectiveness: Asphalt pavement is relatively cost-effective compared to other pavement materials. Its lower initial cost makes it a practical choice for various road and parking lot projects.
- Quick construction and repair: Asphalt can be laid and compacted quickly, allowing for faster construction and repair times. This efficiency is significant for busy roads and parking lots that need to minimize disruption to traffic.
- Exceptional Ride Quality: Asphalt provides a smooth surface for vehicles to drive on, ensuring a comfortable ride and reducing wear and tear on vehicles.
- Flexibility: Asphalt offers flexibility, which enables it to withstand minor movements and fluctuations in the ground without cracking or breaking. This property helps prevent damage due to freeze-thaw cycles and other environmental factors.
- Durability: Properly designed and maintained asphalt pavements can be highly durable and resistant to heavy traffic loads and weathering.
- Skid resistance: Asphalt surfaces can be designed to provide good skid resistance, reducing the likelihood of accidents, especially during wet or icy conditions.
- Fast drainage: Asphalt surfaces can be designed with proper slope and drainage structures, allowing water to drain quickly and efficiently, reducing the risk of flooding and water-related damage.
- Recyclability: Asphalt is the most recycled product in America. Walbec has been recycling asphalt pavements into new products for decades, and we continue to increase the amount of Recycled Asphalt Pavements (RAP) we put into our pavements. Asphalt pavements are 100% recyclable.
- Energy efficiency: Asphalt production and construction processes typically require less energy than other pavement materials like concrete. As a part of the ENERGY STAR® Challenge for Industry, Walbec has accepted the global call-to-action for industrial sites to reduce their energy intensity by 10 percent. We are committed to doing our part to protect the environment through the adoption of energy-efficient products and practices.
