A property owners worst nightmare is improper drainage of the flow of water.  Controlling water flow is based on the way a lot is graded and if a drainage plan has been put into place.  Libs Paving Company offers services in excavation and grading related to your asphalt project and its drainage.  

Drainage plans

Before any construction can begin on a site, it has to first be cleared of any obstructions – trees, shrubs, large boulders, etc. This process of lot clearing is called excavation.  Once excavation is complete, the land must be leveled and compacted before construction can begin.  This process of leveling the area is called grading.  Grading is very important as it determines the slope of the land.  Which is key to preventing water from pooling in areas or carrying loose soil away with it. Along with proper grading, most projects require a drainage plan.

Proper Drainage

As a property is being graded, the experts at Libs Paving will also often create a drainage plan in preparation of runoff and soil erosion.  Drainage can often be controlled with pipes, culverts, french drains, ditches, trench drains and also through retaining walls and fill dirt. If drainage issues are not properly addressed in the beginning stages of construction, it can lead to significant damage and costly repairs later.  Often these issues do not appear until later and are difficult to repair. 

Libs Paving Company has many years of expertise in grading areas for different uses.  Our professional contractors have worked on grading for sub-divisions and homeowners associations, parking lots, roadbeds, driveways and more!
