Asphalt

Crack Fill

A crack in your parking lot’s asphalt can look unsightly and is the start of the deterioration process. Cracks allow water to penetrate into the sub grade and destroy the pavement from the bottom up. After a bad winter, small cracks can develop into dreaded alligator cracking or worse, potholes. Click here to have a qualified Asphalt Paving Company provide Crack Sealing for your project.

Why use Chamberlain for sealing cracks in your asphalt?

We have highly trained professionals and two state of the art application units that ensure accurate temperature, accurate placement, and longer lasting repairs than any other paving contractor.

Milling

Chamberlain has been in the milling business since 1985, long before other contractors came around. We use milling machines on most large projects and continually find ways to use milling technology to save time and money for our customers. Click here to have a qualified Asphalt Paving Company provide Milling for your project.

Milling vs. Digging

We have been in the milling business since 1985, long before other contractors came around.
On any job, except the very smallest jobs, we remove the asphalt with 1 of our 4 milling machines. Milling is much faster than digging and leaves a clean, compacted sub grade with sharp vertical edges. Chamberlains’ high production allows our customers to get back to business as quickly as possible after their new parking lot repairs are perfected.
We can use this milling technology to perform partial depth asphalt patches, where we replace only the top 2″ or so of the pavement, or full depth patches where we replace the entire thickness of asphalt and possibly the stone base as well.

Drainage Concerns

Milling machines can also be used to cut drainage swales in existing pavement to correct drainage problems. Give us a call and find out how our milling machines can save you time and money on your next paving project.

Patching

Whether it’s large scale patchwork or one small patch, Chamberlain has the equipment and manpower to perform the job effectively. Our milling machines mean large production capability on large patch jobs.

Chamberlain pioneered partial depth asphalt repair for parking lots in the 1990’s. When applied properly, it saves you money by only having the damaged portion of the asphalt (top layer) removed and replaced.

Seal Coating/ Rejuvenator

Chamberlain Contractors has been in the Seal Coating business since 1978. We have highly trained personnel and the most up-to-date equipment. What sets Chamberlain apart? Preparation, preparation, preparation. We have automated sweepers and blowers for all jobs and as in painting, preparation is as important as the application of the coating itself.

In order to properly complete any Seal Coating project, we thoroughly clean the pavement with power brooms & blowers. We remove vegetation, fill cracks & prime oil spots. Then we apply 2 coats of high grade petroleum based sealer that is resistant to gas & oil and weather damage. It also makes your lot look great. And while the lot is still blocked off, our expert painters stripe the lot with new lines & traffic markings.

Asphalt Emulsion (Petroleum) Sealing

Chamberlain offers asphalt emulsion (petroleum-based) sealer. Seal coating protects your pavement while providing a jet black finish that keeps it looking great. Studies prove that a structurally sound pavement can last indefinitely if it is sealed every 3-5 years.

Asphalt Rejuvenator

Chamberlain offers an asphalt rejuvenator/sealer to penetrate the asphalt surface replenishing the oils lost oxidation and the effects of the sun. It also provides a seal on the surface to protect the underlying pavement from oxidative effects of the air, sunlight, water, and fuel.

Concrete Installations

Do you have an area in your parking lot that  continues to fail because of heavy truck traffic? This happens in front of dumpsters on just about all types of  properties. We can cut out that deteriorated asphalt and install a  concrete dumpster pad that will stand the test of time. Concrete is not affected by oil spills, so when that trash truck dumps hydraulic fluid on it, you can simply wash it away.

We can also help you design a concrete parking lot, concrete driveway, or concrete sidewalk to connect frequently traveled areas or install curbs and gutters around your new parking lot. We can help you design it, lay it out and install the whole thing with minimal disruption.

Deteriorated asphalt, or other affected area, is excavated completely and hauled away in waiting dump trucks. We tamp the sub-base thoroughly, set forms and install welded wire mesh for added strength. We pour new concrete using a minimum 3500 psi air entrained concrete mix with a light broom finish. We strip the forms and backfill if necessary.

Concrete is one of the strongest substances used in construction. In areas where other materials are failing, concrete can be the difference between an unsightly property that is dangerous and a neat looking property that is safe. Put us to work on your next project.

Concrete Repairs

Cracked concrete driveways, concrete sidewalks and concrete curbs are trip hazards and can be a major liability. At Chamberlain Concrete, our highly trained crews will make prompt and precise concrete repairs or concrete replacements.

Our experts in asphalt and concrete repairs will quickly remove your deteriorated concrete and replace it with new concrete that meets the surrounding grade evenly and looks great. We have the equipment and manpower to make concrete repairs quickly, safely and with precision. And with our own concrete trucks, we can control the quality of the concrete mix to make sure it meets our specifications and yours.

At Chamberlain Contractors, our process is precise and prompt for concrete repairs. After your deteriorated sidewalk, curb, dumpster pads or aprons have been marked out, we quickly and efficiently saw cut the perimeter of the deteriorated area to produce a nice even edge. Next we dig out the debris and haul it off to be recycled. After thoroughly tamping the sub grade we install wire mesh expansion material and 3500 psi concrete with a broom finish. The concrete repairs are then finished, making the concrete skid resistant.

Most concrete areas are designed for foot traffic. This leads to a huge liability issue when the surfaces become cracked and uneven. For properties over 30 years old, the concrete (sidewalks, driveways, parking lots) starts to wear out and the surface can spall away creating problem footing. Our asphalt and concrete crews have access to all of our construction equipment including bobcats, backhoes, gradall and dump trucks- all necessary to make removal quick and efficient. Replacement with new concrete is generally done the same day to avoid leaving open “construction holes” on your property. We can gain access to remote areas using wheel barrows and our georgia buggies which carry up to 1 yard of concrete at a time. This leaves less wear and tear on your landscaping large machines would. We are specialists at what we do.

Decorative Paving

Decorative Paving As Beautiful As Brick!

We offer a unique alternative to conventional paving by imprinting hot mix asphalt and treating the patterned surface to create the appearance of hand-laid decorative bricks.

Decorative Asphalt has 3 major advantages over bricks:

  • It is much cheaper to install.
  • It is much faster to install (which reduces construction mess and confusion to patrons).
  • It is much easier and less expensive to maintain.

Once the resurfacing of the pavement has occurred and the asphalt has reached its final density, we layout and imprint the pattern onto the surface of the hot mix asphalt per manufacturer’s specifications. When the asphalt cools, CCI will then install the selected colored coating materials.

  • Our colored coating materials have superior adhesion, flexibility and abrasion resistant characteristics as well as color stability.

French Drains

A big problem for parking lots can be subsurface water problems that continually cause asphalt to fail in specific areas.

This underground water can come from a spring, a lot of clay in the sub-base, or even landscape islands that absorb water and allow water to filter under the pavement.

For this reason, French drains can be a significant part of many of our patching and resurfacing projects. We can relieve this underground water pressure by digging a trench or trough 18″ – 24″ deep. We install filter cloth and an open graded crushed stone in this trench line along with perforated plastic pipe. The open graded stone allows a place for water to collect and where the underground hydraulic pressure can be released. The trench is dug between this collection point and the release point. The release point can be a nearby catch basin inlet or a drainage ravine, etc. The filter cloth surrounding this system keeps mud, silt, etc. from getting into the stone and compromising its porosity. French drains are extremely effective for situations where constant water problems are an issue.

FSB – 100% Recycled Asphalt

Foam Stabilized Base (FSB) is designated a “green product” by BuildingGreen.com. FSB is time tested and ready for use on your parking lot project. Asphalt parking lots have never exactly been considered “green”, but Chamberlain Contractors is changing that situation by offering FSB foamed asphalt.

A procedure proven around the world.

Widely used throughout Europe, Africa and Asia, where resources can be scares, FSB is used as a base course in the rehabilitation of existing pavements and the construction of new parking lots and roads.

Eligible for points for LEED approval

From a sustainable design perspective, FSB has been designated a “green product” suitable for inclusion in a project’s LEED certification application in the areas of Construction Waste Management, Resource Reuse, Recycled Content, Regional Materials and Innovation in Design.

A “green” production process

Conventional hot mix asphalt requires virgin aggregates to be super-heated to 325 °F before being coated with a hot asphalt cement.  It is a very energy-intensive process with significant greenhouse emissions. FSB is produced with 100% recycled aggregates, and involves a cold mixing process—you can hold it in your hand as soon as it comes out of the mill.  Energy use is a small fraction of the hot mix process and there are no greenhouse emissions.

Environmental benefits and cost savings

Chamberlain is proud to announce the first urban plant producing FSB in the USA and to be able to offer our customers cost savings and the environmental benefits associated with this exciting product. And most importantly . . . there is no sacrifice to the quality or design life of the project.

Finally! A green product that works & costs less!

Inlet Structure

At Chamberlain we are experts at replacing  or repairing damaged concrete catch basins, or drain inlets, which are an integral part of your parking lot system.

Spring and Fall are good times to do a visual inspection of your catch basins to make sure they are not being clogged by leaves, trash or branches.  Your Chamberlain representative can provide this inspection service free of charge upon request and provide a proposal for any remedial action that may be necessary.

In addition to clogs, catch basins can develop leaks in their structure, that causes water and subsurface dirt to enter the basin.  The resultant sinkholes that develop around the edge of the catch basin can  cause costly catastrophic failures if left unchecked.   Replacement of a few bricks, some mortar, or a bent grate keep your parking lot drainage system looking good and working properly at a minimal expense.

Of course if total replacement is necessary, or if a failure occurs, just give us a call.  At Chamberlain we can quickly barricade the area and get a proposal to you the same day.  Old style brick catch basins are usually replaced with precast or newly placed concrete catch basins that contain rebar mats and are designed to last longer.  And we’re  not talking about an off the shelf solution.  Each new catch basin installation is tailor made to your specific requirement.  Once the catch basin is replaced, we will thoroughly compact the surrounding subgrade material in layers using vibratory tampers and install new asphalt or concrete as required.  Once the project is completed your catch basin and drainage will be better than ever.  At Chamberlain we have a lot of experience in drainage problems so ask us for assistance.

Pavement Profile System Management Tool

If you could look at the sub-structure of your parking lot, you would have a much better idea of how much it will cost to maintain over the next 5 to 7 years… Chamberlain Contractors can show you how.

Chamberlain Contractors, in conjunction with the College of Engineering at the University of Maryland, has developed a unique, computerized parking lot pavement evaluation system. Utilizing this system, specially trained personnel systematically survey the pavement and obtain substrate test data on your parking lot. An engineering report is then developed which will provide reliable pavement life cycle information enabling you to better plan the spending of your future parking lot repair and maintenance dollars.

Recycling

Concrete and asphalt are among the most recycled products in the world, by weight.

At Chamberlain Contractors, Inc. we believe in doing everything we can to recycle the earth’s natural resources. To that end we created our own concrete and asphalt recycling plant in 1992. At our recycling facility, we recycle over 10,000 tons of concrete and asphalt per year. By crushing used asphalt and concrete, and turning them into useable crushed stone product, we free up a tremendous amount of landfill space, and allow virgin aggregates from stone quarries, etc. to last much longer.

At Chamberlain Contractors, Inc. we are proud of the contribution we make to the environment.
