As is the case with any element of property construction, you can count on pavement to last longer if it is of high-quality and has been properly installed. Since the quality of paving materials and the installation methods used vary from company to company, it is important to find a pavement service provider who can provide you with the following:
A Wide Range of Services
Reflect for a moment on your home or business. How many paved surfaces do you have or intend to have? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to hire the same crew of professionals to install and maintain all of your paved surfaces, concrete and asphalt alike? A full-range paving service provider can do this for you.
Attention to Detail
A bump in a tennis court or an uneven driveway that is used for pick-up basketball games can render the playing surface unfair. Improperly laid asphalt can make a parking lot or road unsafe. When it comes to paving, attention to detail is of the essence. Look for a professional paving company with a reputation for precision and thoroughness.
Paving is one of those fields in which practice makes perfect, or nearly perfect. If you hire a professional with no experience paving tennis courts to pave your property’s tennis court, you are taking a gamble. Hire a paving company with a wealth of tennis court paving and maintenance experience, and you can feel confident that you will be happy with the work the company carries out on your recreational facilities.
Quality paving services need not be prohibitively expensive. Find a professional who can take care of your design, construction, and maintenance needs at cost-effective prices.

The parking lot is certainly not the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks about elements of a business and business location that are vital to that business’s success. Still, the accessibility and state of repair of a parking lot can have a measurable impact on a consumer’s decision to or not to patronize a business. When compared with asphalt parking lots, concrete paving offers the following benefits.
Asphalt is rough and has a look that is evocative of tar. Concrete, on the other hand, is smooth and attractive. If your customers like what you have to offer in your store, they are not going to boycott you for having an asphalt parking lot. A concrete parking lot, however, may draw the attention of passersby who are unfamiliar with your business but find your parking lot inviting.
If your business is open late, one convincing reason why you should opt for a concrete parking lot is that it creates a safer night environment. This is because concrete reflects light better than asphalt does.
Ease and Cost of Maintenance
Compared to asphalt, concrete parking lots require very little maintenance. This saves commercial entities with concrete lots time, money, and hassle. Since concrete is more durable and resilient than asphalt, it also has a longer average lifespan.
In case you need another reason to choose concrete over asphalt paving, the relative eco-friendliness of concrete might be able to do the trick. The mixing and pouring of concrete are less resource-intensive than the asphalt pavement process.
Are you the owner of a retail center whose asphalt parking lot is crumbling and decrepit? Rather than repave your parking lot with asphalt and subjecting those who utilize your parking lot to the rough edges and poor light reflection associated with asphalt paving, hire a professional to design and construct a concrete parking lot. To speak with an experienced provider of concrete repair and paving services in the Cincinnati area, call Pinnacle Paving at (513) 474-4900.

Concrete is an ideal paving material, providing home and business owners with the aesthetic and durability they crave without a flinch-inducing price tag. As with blacktop and other paving materials, however, concrete is not without flaws. Cracking is the most common problem that arises with concrete paved surfaces, and the professionals’ preferred methods of concrete repair include:
When it is a suitable option, epoxy injection is favored by many concrete repair professionals. After identifying and addressing the cause of a crack, the crack is sealed and injected with epoxy. This method of concrete repair is commonly used on large, above-ground concrete structures.
The most miniscule concrete cracks can be filled with monomers, resins, and urethanes. Before they can be filled, these small cracks must be cleaned and allowed to dry thoroughly. Water blasting is often used as the method of cleaning.
Wider cracks in concrete can be repaired using a grout made from cement, water, and sand. Grout injections are carried out using either a manual injection gun or a pump.
Vertical cracks in concrete can be repaired via a drilling-and-plugging procedure. In this process, a hole that is a couple of inches long is drilled into and alongside the crack. The drilled hole is then plugged using a grout filling.
Another method of concrete repair used for major cracks is called stiching, and it is not too dissimilar from the medical procedure of the same name. First, several small holes are drilled on either side of the crack. Once they have been drilled, the ends of U-shaped staples are inserted into the holes. Grout or resin are then used to bond the staples to the concrete surface.
Repairing a minor crack in concrete is simple and cost-effective. Unless it is attended to by a concrete pavement repair professional in a hurry, however, a small crack in a concrete driveway or parking lot can turn into a large, obstructive, and unsightly crack that will cost a lot more to repair. To arrange to have a skilled concrete repair professional fix the cracks in your Cincinnati area concrete surface or structure, call Pinnacle Paving at (513) 474-4900.

Curb ramps make our streets more accessible to wheelchair users and other mobility impaired persons. To ensure that the streets of Cincinnati do not make life more difficult for the mobility impaired, the city has passed a number of regulations dictating what a curb ramp should look like and from what it should be constructed.
Adhering to Ohio Department of Transportation, City of Cincinnati, and American with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG), these regulations include providing crosswalks with two curb ramps at every intersection and constructing new sidewalks out of brick pavers with sand. Exceptions and alterations to the rules are permitted in some difficult cases.
Meeting ADAAG and City of Cincinnati curb ramp guidelines often requires major renovations or structural changes. If you are seeking to help make Cincinnati more accessible to all residents and need a concrete and blacktop paving specialist to help you meet those curb ramp requirements, call Pinnacle Paving at (513) 474-4900.
