Asphalt Driveways

The look of your driveway sets the tone for people’s opinions of your property when they first arrive. Whether you’re trying to buy or sell a home, make sure your driveway is a priority, as it is an essential part of any property’s hardscape. Driveways are cost-effective and long-lasting, while also being quite inexpensive to maintain.

We are devoted to providing you with a firm and resilient pavement that is efficient and dependable for many years. We offer a driveway with an eye-catching finish that will surely stand out. We pride ourselves on the exactness from perimeters and angles to the precise compaction alongside structures and other pavements. The tamping of the edges is instrumental in the fortification of the driveway. This provides correct reinforcement against crumbling edges and bestowing your driveway a pleasant finished look of exact lines and curvilinear curves.

Intended to be strong and long-lasting, asphalt driveways are created to survive winter freeze and spring thaw. In contrast to concrete, asphalt installation and repairs require a lesser amount of steps to finish the paving project.

Asphalt paving projects can be accomplished in a shorter time frame due to the fewer steps needed for installation and repairs compared to concrete.

Asphalt Driveway Overstone

If you’re confronting an uneven surface, muck, dirt and a general mess with your gravel drive, you could be in need of discovering a way to make the gravel drive solid.

Choosing Asphalt Overstone is the best decision since excavation is typically not needed, thus decreasing cost.

In first step it is essential to establishthe correct level to prevent water from collecting on the surface.

Next, a sub-base will be established to form a consistent plane that can bear the weight of the asphalt above it.

In last step we install 3″ asphalt and compact it.

When should I do it?

Overstone can be used when the client already has a gravel base installed.

However, our crew must inspect the levels and raise to a total of two inches of gravel.

It is possible that a little bit of excavation is necessary for cleaning.

Driveway Overlay/Resurface

A resurface is a budget-friendly way of giving your driveway a facelift, if your priority isn’t its longevity. Generally, a resurfacing project over an existing steady driveway surface will last approximately 7-10 years, though some spots may need to be patched.

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

  • A minimally cracked area.
  • 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 good to fair [shape|condition}.
  • The driveway is long and can have sections corrected independently; small driveways are not likely to experience cost reductions due to the minimum charge that may be required.
