Driveways

The first step to a good impression. The appearance of your driveway makes one of the first impressions about your property to visitors and passersby.Whether your selling your home or looking to stay, be sure your driveway is not overlooked, as no property’s hardscape is complete without a well-kept driveway.Driveways are economical, durable and long lasting, and they are also relatively inexpensive to maintain. The usual life span of a properly installed driveway that has a 6″ gravel base and paved at three-inches-thick, is of at approximately 18 – 20 years with recommended maintenance.Maintenance can be done every year or every two years depending on the age, climate, and wear.Driveways that are sealed regularly look better and last longer. Asphalt driveways also are easy to keep free of snow and ice in the winter and relatively dirt-free in the summer.

Asphalt driveways are both strong and durable and are engineered to withstand winter freezing and spring thawing. Unlike concrete, asphalt repairs can be easily and quickly done.

We are committed to providing you with the most aesthetically complete driveway you can envision. We specialize in attention to detail, quality and a timely completion of your job. An important factor to the strength of the driveway is the hand tamping of the edges at 45-degree angles. This provides proper support against crumbling edges as well as giving your driveway a beautiful finished appearance.
