It’s  impossible to say “the most important thing” about a highest quality paving job is  ____________ .  

Each part of the project is critical to the total success.  It starts with good ground preparation.  As in the image above large rocks, roots, loam, and debris needs to be removed and replaced with specific sizes of crushed stone.  It’s where you can’t see, below the pavement, where many problems begin.  Water needs to flow in and out of this area to prevent frost heaves.

The quality of the asphalt mix is critical to the longevity of the pavement.  McQuade Paving uses DOT grade pavement for all installations.  The mix must be kept hot while spreading and compacting.  McQuade Paving will not install pavement below critical ambient temperatures.
