Asphalt Driveway Overstone
If your gravel driveway is in an untidy state, with irregularities, dirt, and mud, you should consider how to make it sturdy and firm.
Asphalt Overstone is the sensible selection since often excavation is not necessary, thus reducing cost.
First, examining the levels is necessary to make sure the water doesn’t form puddles on the ground.
Next, a sub-base will be set up, forming a plane that is sturdy enough to bear the blacktop that will be placed on it.
In last step we install 3″ asphalt and compact it.
When should I do it?
Overstone is placed when the client already has a gravel base installed.
At any rate, our team must examine the depths and add up to two inches of gravel.
A shallow digging might be demanded for cleaning.

Driveways can be resurfaced or “overlayed” with asphalt. The best candidate for a overlay is:
- A slightly cracked surface.
- The driveway is settled no more than 2″ low below the garage floor or has at least this amount of space from current pavement to garage floor, city sidewalk, and entrance, and is in satisfactory to fair [shape|condition}.
- The driveway is long and can have sections corrected independently; it is unlikely that smaller driveways will see any cost advantages due to the minimum payment that has to be made.

ASPHALT PAVING PROCESS
DEMO & BASE PREPARATION
Upon arrival the squad will remove the existing covering of the driveway, place the fresh stone base, grade, make it compacted and ready for examination with the local village or city as commanded.
Once the base is arranged, the driveway will mostly be able to be used as a parking lot.
When the base is ready, we will arrange any requisite base inspections.
After passing the inspection, the project pavement installation date will be set, which is usually 1-3 days after the base has been readied, depending on the weather.
There is not a requirement for anyone to be present during inspection in most villages, however the permit needs to be visibly posted on a front window or door, and approved plans must be accessible if needed.
If a base inspection is not necessary for particular Villages, we shall advise, and paving can be done as soon as possible.
The road crew will finish the driveway by laying the asphalt and prohibiting access.
For the construction project, please speak to the local police department for permission to park on the street.
