  • Asphalt Pavement Guide: Thickness EastCoat

    As we discussed in our previous blog, there are three essential structural elements of pavement that we will review in our Asphalt Pavement Guide series; subgrade preparation, pavement thickness, and drainage.. When discussing these three elements we are going to speak in terms of residential asphalt pavement vs. commercial asphalt pavement – in other words, your driveways vs. your parking lot.
