Invest in a well built asphalt driveway

Asphalt Driveways are a great investment. The most important factor is a well built base for the asphalt.  Asphalt is simply a wearing surface for the structure. The muscle is in the base. Measures vary for different locations and ground conditions. Some need more attention than others. The depth of the asphalt does matter depending on the loads the drive will need to endure. Drainage is another factor to consider when building your asphalt driveway. No one wants “bird baths” on their driveway or rain water running back towards their house. It is best to sealcoat your driveway 3 years after you pave it. The sealcoat protects the asphalt from cracking & drying out from the sun. Also, you should protect the edge of your asphalt with a rock shoulder. This will prevent the edge of your driveway from breaking off. Sometimes it is best to mill or cut a transition at the road for an improved tie in. This will prevent the asphalt from flaking off over time. In an overlay scenario it is best to apply a tack coat prior to adding a new lift of hotmix asphalt. Tack is essentially glue for asphalt. These are a few things to consider when building your asphalt driveway. We offer all types of solutions & options for your asphalt needs.
