Orlando Concrete Curb Installation
Did you realize that curbs are only part of a well-designed drainage system to protect your property? There are state and local water management regulations that govern curb and gutter engineering. Depending on their location, curbs may also require compliance to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Curbs in Orlando must also consider any regulations pertaining to bicycle lanes and other traffic flow issues. U.S. Pave is an experienced concrete contractor that knows these regulations well and can ensure your property has the necessary curbs and gutters for proper drainage and compliance.
Beyond their practical purpose, curbs also define the parking lot boundaries and hold the pavement in place. Freestanding asphalt can easily crumble along the edges. This can lead to water infiltration and accelerated failure of your pavement. Vehicles crossing the edge make the problem worse. Properly installed concrete curbs and gutters at the edges of your commercial driveways and parking lot protects asphalt from the pressures of vehicles and subsequent crumbling.
Auburndale Curb Repairs
Curbs and gutters are typically formed and poured from concrete because this material can be shaped into specific, durable shapes that hold that form indefinitely. Gutters run alongside the visible part of the curb, channeling water in a specific direction toward nearby storm drains. The curb itself is only partly visible. Approximately eight-inch curbs extend below the grade, creating an effective barrier between your parking lot and the roadway.
Properly installed curbs and gutters in Auburndale allow for drainage even on lots that appear completely flat. U.S. Pave Orlando has the knowledge, skill and experience necessary to effectively engineer the slope of parking lots and other properties to prevent water problems and meet local regulations.
