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 existing pavement to garage floor, city sidewalk, and entrance, and is in adequate to average [shape|condition}.
- The driveway is long and can have segments corrected independently; cost savings are not typically seen in smaller driveways as they may still have to meet the minimum fee.
