To pour concrete ove asphalt or not to pour concrete over asphalt.
blacktop's spec'd as ' acc ' ( asphalt cement concrete [ flexible pavement ] ) & what WE know as conc is spec'd ' pcc ' ( portland cement concrete [ rigid pavement ] ),,, since its the interior floor of your shop, i wouldn't worry about sub-base,,, remember helping my father place conc floor in our monument shop ( on dirt ) over 60yrs ago,,, its still serviceable, no random crk's, & paste cover's still good despite yrs of alum oxide abrasion,,, no mesh/rebar ( fiber hadn't been invented yet ), good jnt pattern, 5" conc floor w/turned-down edge & 3' deep footers in upstate ny.
adding your location would've been a great help & might have lowered speculation.
if you hear it from a guy in the apron store, be VERY suspicious the mtl/method will work,,, when it time to build something together, they won't answer phones NOR help To view links or images in signatures your post count must be 10 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
