The asphalt paving company most trusted by developers and commercial construction firms in Los Angeles County California, El Camino Asphalt, recently performed an asphalt milling and overlay project in Santa Monica CA. These services are vital for parking lots and roadways to keep them looking good for longer, and we were happy to help the residents of a new condo building stay safe on the road in front of their units.
Asphalt milling involves using specialized paving equipment to grind away the top few layers of pavement, exposing the layer underneath and leaving a texture that allows for greater adhesion of a new asphalt layer. Applying this top coat of new pavement is called asphalt overlay, and it can be performed on any pavement that is structurally sound. A roadway or parking lot that has lots of cracks, rutting, depressions, or issues with the subgrade isn’t a good candidate, as those issues need to be addressed first.
On the roadway in Santa Monica CA, El Camino Asphalt milled away the top layer and then applied 2 inches of asphalt before compressing and smoothing the surface. We safely routed traffic around the project and completed it quickly so the construction contractors could get back to work.

For towns in the Anaheim area like Stanton CA, El Camino Asphalt is the trusted paving contractor for all kinds of asphalt paving jobs in a variety of industries from commercial retail to real estate. Our experience in local paving has allowed us to make relationships with other construction professionals in California. One of the general contractors we’ve worked with before recently contacted us for help with the construction of a new apartment complex in Stanton CA.
Many people don’t realize everything that asphalt paving companies are capable of for their valued local clients. In addition to asphalt installation, the professionals at El Camino Asphalt can also prepare a site for building by excavating and leveling the land. This is what we did on this Stanton CA apartment complex project. First we excavated the soil to the specifications from our general contractor, then graded the land or gave it a slight slope so that water can run away correctly. Then we installed a special soil stabilizing product called a geotextile grid; this grid is laid down between bare soil and pavement to make sure everything stays in place and the buildings will be stable for decades.
It’s projects like these that make El Camino Asphalt the top paving contractor in Orange County California. Not only can we install asphalt parking lots and industrial pavement, as well as repair and maintain that pavement, but we can also prepare the site for paving or building construction.
Property owners may not know much about asphalt parking lot mixes and subgrades, but the trusted local paving experts certainly do! In La Habra CA, El Camino Asphalt is that paving company. We have decades of experience with asphalt paving, so we understand how different asphalt mixes and gravel subgrades work to create that hard, black pavement that’s perfect for roadways and parking lots.
Let the asphalt experts from El Camino Asphalt explain some of the technical ins and outs of asphalt mixes and how they affect the look and use of the pavement.
Parking Lot Paving: Asphalt Mixes and Subgrades
What is an asphalt mix?
Asphalt isn’t just one solid material, but a mix of liquid and solid materials. Different sizes of gravel, crushed stones, or recycled asphalt called aggregates are suspended in an emulsion of bitumen, a petroleum product, and additives that is liquid at high temperatures and solid once it cools.
Why do we need different asphalt mixes?
Asphalt has a wide variety of uses, so the type of asphalt itself can be specially mixed to ensure prime performance in any situation, including:
Layered asphalt for heavy traffic areas
Driveway asphalt designed for longevity
Textured pavement for a high end look
Water-permeable asphalt for walkways
Sealcoating with thin asphalt binders and fine aggregates to protect asphalt surface
Importance of Subgrade
Another hugely important aspect of asphalt paving is the subgrade or lower layers made up of aggregates of various sizes. These base layers are vital to provide a stable base for long-lasting asphalt pavement. Experienced paving contractors will grade and compact these layers so that they don’t shift or erode.
