Driveway Overlay/Resurface

A resurface is a budget-friendly way of giving your driveway a facelift, if your priority isn’t its longevity. A resurfacing process over a sound preexisting driveway should last around 7-10 years, although certain areas may necessitate spot patching.

Driveways can be resurfaced or “overlayed” with asphalt. The best candidate for a resurface is:

  • A minimally cracked surface.
  • The driveway is settled at leastat minimum 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 adequate to average [shape|condition}.
