Recreational Services

Tennis courts, tot lots and pathways are oftentimes made with asphalt. Sometimes these surfaces fail prematurely because they are designed in a substandard way. Builders often place 1 - 2 inches of asphalt over a subgrade that is not always properly constructed or compacted. Conventional wisdom is that foot traffic will not deteriorate a lift of asphalt.

Unfortunately, a poor subgrade means that the asphalt cannot be compacted properly (a heavy enough roller is not used) and even under foot traffic the pavement still deteriorates prematurely.

Specialized equipment, tools and knowledge are necessary for installation of new play surfaces and for repair and maintenance of existing surfaces. Contact your Pavement Network professional for ideas on how to solve your recreational surface problems.
