Asphalt is an afforadable choice for resurfacing and is easily maintained. Asphalt paved driveways are extremely popular, are the most cost-effective to install over most other driveway options and unlike concrete, an asphalt-paved driveway is both strong and flexible. And remember, freshly paved driveway greatly increases the value of your property!
Hot-mix asphalt is the product you want for a good, complete driveway that you won't have to replace for 20-30 years. It's similar to what you see road crews using on highways and roads. It's a dark brown or black substance derived from crude oil and is an aggregate of stone and sand. The asphalt is heated to over 300 degrees Fahrenheit to make it liquified. Preparation includes removing topsoil or clay-type soil and replacing it with a sub-base layer of crushed stone and gravel. After the pouring phase, the layer needs to be compacted and smoothed out with a vibratory roller. In some cases, a paving contractor may suggest a full-depth asphalt application. This type of application is best if very heavy vehicles will be regularly parked on the driveway.
At Pavement Services LLC, we make sure the subject of installing proper slopes and drainage is discussed with each customer prior to the start of every job. It is also critical that during the installation of all the various layers (commercial paving projects), each layer gets compacted prior to the installation of the next layer of material.
Also, we are equipped to raise or lower any municipal pipes to the finished height of the driveway if necessary.
