The expertise of LE Paving crews can only be gained from years of experience working with asphalt and concrete. We have the skills and equipment needed to handle everything from large asphalt jobs to the smallest pothole patch.
A thorough review of your asphalt or concrete project can prevent problems before they occur. We will evaluate the condition of your pavement, plans for new lots, and drainage and slope issues and make recommendations.
Efficient asphalt maintenance requires preparation, beginning with a thorough assessment of pavement condition. We will site walk your property to identify gaps, raised edges, broken curbs, alligator cracks, and other issues and provide a detailed report.
Rainwater needs a place to go, and a good drainage plan will control the rain before it controls your property. We will plan methods for directing water on your site focused on avoiding pooling and uncontrolled runoff and reducing the potential for soil erosion and flooding.
Potholes, cracks, heaving, and similar issues are as unsafe as they are unsightly. Our repair services protect against pedestrian slips and falls and expensive issues that will pop up down the road.
Crack sealing is your first line of defense against the asphalt aging that starts as soon as it’s laid. Sealing prevents water penetration that can lead to sub-grade erosion and frost heaving in winter. Sealing also rehydrates asphalt, making it more flexible and able to expand without further cracking while improving surface appearance.
If there’s anything people complain about, it’s potholes – and for good reason. Potholes create unsafe conditions for vehicles and pedestrians alike. Our pothole repair services improve vehicle safety and help protect against pedestrian slips and falls. Prompt repair also helps prevent expensive problems in the substrate below.
Asphalt Patching (chips, heaving, cracks, etc.)
Repairing is much less costly than repaving. Asphalt patching helps prolong your paving investment by preventing water penetration. Our patching services address chipping, cracking, heaving, and similar issues before they turn into expensive problems.
Asphalt Seal-Coat (fogging)
Fogging protects asphalt the way sealant protects a wooden deck. By applying a light coat of asphalt emulsion (fogging), we seal and preserve your asphalt while increasing curb appeal. This important maintenance task should be carried out once every three years on all asphalt surfaces.
Asphalt overlays bring new life to old surfaces. Our overlay services include milling, base patching, levelling, and surface layer application. We carefully ensure proper grading for effective water shedding and drainage on all overlay projects.
Asphalt rejuvenation restores the chemical properties to asphalt that began deteriorating as soon as your asphalt was laid down. We apply a rejuvenator solution that penetrates well below the surface to seal against air, water, and chemical contaminants, slowing oxidation and deterioration and extending service life.
Our crews are deeply experienced in asphalt paving. Parking lots, roads, pathways, and RV pads are among our specialties.
You only get one chance to make a first impression, and that’s never more true than with your parking lot. Make those first moments count and attract quality tenants and customers with our expert paving services. Our experienced crews construct parking lots up to 6000ft2.
Canadian weather extremes are hard on roads. From thorough planning and design, through exacting excavation, grading, and aggregating, to careful application of the final gravel, base, and surface layers, we build quality roads that last.
Asphalt provides the smooth, continuous, joint-free pathways preferred for cycling, rollerblading, jogging, and walking.
RV parking pads
We design and construct level concrete and asphalt RV parking pads that provide proper drainage for precipitation. Protect your RV from the hazards of uneven, unstable, and muddy areas.
Tenants and customers are always impressed by a nicely painted, cleanly swept parking lot in good condition. With our maintenance services, they’ll keep coming back again and again.
Parking lots and driveways strewn with pebbles, mulch, dirt, sand, foliage, trash, and other litter look unsightly, and the asphalt deteriorates more quickly as tires grind debris into the surface. Our sweeping services leave your facility looking spotless and minimize the potential for any toxic pollutants reaching nearby water sources.
A fresh coat of striping paint on your parking lot will help brighten the appearance and direct the flow of traffic. Handicap stalls also need new paint periodically to keep them readily identifiable. Line painting protects and enhances your investment by maximizing space and letting tenants and customers know that you value their safety and convenience.
Water Drainage Solutions
Maintenance or planning of storm drains, manholes and catch basins are often forgotten about until desperately needed. Our drainage solutions make sure your property is well prepared for the next watery onslaught.
New Catch Basins
Not enough drains on your site? We install new catch basins that can be connected to existing drains. Alternatively, we can create a dry well where water dissipates into the surrounding soil. Services also include all types of drainage repair.
Manhole Grade Adjustment
Manholes can separate or raise up in response to frost, increasing groundwater infiltration. If drainage issues are not corrected, water will redirect to other areas, leading eventually to a variety of problems that are much costlier to fix.
Storm drains move water away from parking lots, driveways, sidewalks, and streets. Overflowing drains can lead to erosion and create unsafe driving and walking conditions. We construct and install storm drains, including concrete storm pipes, inlets, junction boxes, culverts, and underground retention and detention areas.
Demolition, Grading, and Excavation
Our milling, excavation, grading, subgrade repair, and removal services save customers a lot of money, time, and complications both immediately and over the long run.
When asphalt is too far gone for an overlay, but full replacement is not advised (or simply not in the budget), milling it down by an inch and applying an overlay can be a successful hybrid solution. We use an asphalt miller on a skid-steer loader to achieve cost-effective results without sacrificing quality.
Our trained and experienced crews are experts at providing a safe and thorough excavation that meets your site needs.
Industrial and commercial construction can generate a great deal of displaced material that needs to be transported off-site. We safely and effectively load and remove surplus asphalt, concrete, rocks, soil, and other debris without harm to surrounding structures and property.
We provide the subgrade repair and stabilization necessary to correct asphalt failures such as rutting, slumping or depressions, heaving, and alligator cracking.
We have the experience and equipment necessary to provide top-quality land leveling and grading for just about any industrial, commercial, or residential purpose, from basic site preparation to drainage improvement and many other projects.
Our crews are experienced concrete artisans. Sidewalks, curbs, curb stops, surface grinding, swale rejuvenation, and decorative flatwork are among our specialties.
Curbs and gutters play a big role in the overall appearance and functionality of your property. They are also a buffer that protects your buildings, fixtures, and landscaping from rolling vehicles. We install and maintain curbs in accordance with City of Calgary Roads standards, repairing any damage quickly to prevent further deterioration.
Our experienced sidewalk construction teams are expert concrete finishers. We have the know-how and equipment to provide customized sidewalks, entryways, and curbs to your business while remaining in complete accordance with City of Calgary Sidewalks & Pathways standards.
Decorative Flat Work (stamped, exposed)
Decorative concrete is a popular and cost-effective alternative to tile, brick, and stonework. Our specialties are exposed aggregate and stamped patterns. With our skilled craftsmen, we can offer a wide variety of colors, patterns, and textures.
Concrete Grinding (unlevel sidewalks, cracks, etc.)
Got a sidewalk, driveway, porch, or floor that is cracked, unlevel, or just needs smoothing? With the help of high-powered grinders, we smooth, repair, and seal concrete installations as a cost-effective alternative to replacement.
Proper rebar installation is critical to the success of concrete projects such as floors, patios, driveways, sidewalks, supports, and slabs. Our experienced teams are well versed in rebar sizes and placement guidelines and will work quickly to prepare your project site for pouring.
Concrete Subgrade/Base work
Successful concrete slabs depend on proper preparation underneath. We compact the subgrade, lay a gravel subbase, and finish with an aggregate fill base layer to provide your slab with a stable, well-drained foundation.
One of the oldest and most common forms of urban drainage and stormwater conveyance, swale channels require periodic rejuvenation. We excavate and grade swales as needed to correct poor coverage and erosion and discourage sediment buildup.
Parking Lot Construction
In addition to preparing the substrate and laying the asphalt, we install bollards and speed bumps to control traffic, protect vulnerable assets, and prevent pedestrian injury.
Also known as wheel stops and parking blocks, curb stops are the small barriers used at the end of parking spaces. They assist in proper parking and prevent vehicles from rolling into buildings.
Parking Block Signs
Parking block signs identify handicap spaces, reserved parking spots, no parking zones, provide directions, and more. We install needed signage in parking lots, along sidewalks, and other areas.
Safety bollards control access, protect buildings, prevent pedestrian injuries, and protect vulnerable assets such as gas and water meters. Whether flexible or rigid, removable or fixed-in-place, our expert crews install and maintain bollards and bollard covers to fit the needs of your site.
Traffic Calming Speed Bumps
Asphalt and concrete speed bumps help prevent speeding in areas where there are frequent pedestrians, playing children, or tight spaces. We install speed bumps in areas where a speed of between 10 -15 kph is desired.
Hardscape installations such as patios and retaining walls add both decorative and practical worth to your landscape. Let us help you increase your property value.
Hardscaping adds both decorative and practical value to your landscape. Our crews are artisans with concrete. We install and maintain patios of all sizes and dimensions to create the perfect platform for enjoying the outdoors.
Retaining walls are very practical as well as being a focal point for your landscape. They serve an essential role in reducing soil erosion and can create a attractive, terraced backdrop out of an uninviting steep slope. We build and maintain retaining walls out of concrete or concrete block and are happy to work within your architectural or landscaping plans.
