Asphalt Paving and Drainage Installation in Addison IL

In Addison IL, Maven Pavement Solutions is the full service paving company that can help local commercial property owners with both asphalt paving and drainage systems. Our professional paving consultants work closely with property managers to find the best solutions for their asphalt problems.

When we heard from a commercial property owner in Addison IL, we sent a pavement consultant out right away. They determined that the roadway behind the commercial building had failed because there wasn’t proper drainage at the site. Water had pooled on the asphalt surface and caused deep cracks, potholes, and severe edge deterioration. The roadway was a hazard, especially for heavy industrial vehicles.

Our expert contractors got to work right away. First, we had to fix the drainage issues. We excavated a deep trench, then installed new drain pipes and connected them to the existing storm sewer. We also installed a trench and swale drain, which is a type of shallow drain that is covered by rocks and vegetation so it’s not bare concrete.

Once the area was graded so that water would flow away from the pavement, we installed a thick, durable asphalt roadway. With the correct slope, this new roadway wouldn’t suffer from the same problems as the first one, so it can last for decades. We also covered all the drainage ditches with different types of stone, including decorative river rocks.

Our commercial client wanted a contractor that could complete the entire project: drainage, excavating, asphalt paving and landscaping. With May Maven Pavement Solutions, that’s exactly what they got.

Parking Lot Paving project in Bolingbrook IL

Maven Pavement Solutions, Bolingbrook IL’s premier parking lot paving company, recently got to help another local business expand. We love working with other businesses in Illinois by providing the best in commercial paving, drainage, and line striping. Our new client needed a company that could do everything to fully upgrade their parking lot, adding 14 parking spaces.

The local business owner, who needed contractors who could do more than just paving, found us through the internet and was reassured by our good reviews, so they gave us a call. We sent a paving consultant out to their site right away to survey and determine the best paving services for their needs. Our expert consultant also designed the new parking lot, including proper drainage, and filed all permits with the Bolingbrook IL authorities.

Once we had worked out the perfect parking lot installation plan, our trained contractors got right to work. First, we excavated the area and hauled away the debris, then compacted and graded the soil before laying down a 10” stone base. Next we paved the area with asphalt and finished it with concrete curbs and gutters. Finally, we used high-quality traffic paint to stripe all the new spaces.

The pros at Maven Pavement Solutions were not only able to do the entire job, we were able to draw up plans that satisfied the village for permitting. This saved the client from having to hire an engineering firm. They were happy we could complete the job from permits all the way to pavement markings.
