Asphalt Driveway Overstone

If you’re struggling with a gravel driveway that is irregular, messy, mucky and untidy, you may need to contemplate how to make it strong and secure.

Choosing Asphalt Overstone is advantageous as it usually does not necessitate excavation, thus reducing cost.

First, Verifying the levels is necessary to obtain the correct grade and keep the water from accumulating 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.

Driveway Overlay/Resurface

Resurfacing is an economical approach to giving your driveway a fresh facade without investing in extended life. A typical resurfacing operation done over a trusted existing driveway surface should last approximately 7-10 years, with the exception of needing spot patching in some locations.

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

  • A slightly cracked area.
  • 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 adequate to average [shape|condition}.
  • The driveway is long and can have segments fixed independently; it is unlikely that smaller driveways will see any cost advantages due to the minimum payment that has to be made.
