If you currently have an asphalt driveway, or concrete, the first step to installing a new asphalt driveway is to properly prepare the site. Excavation and removal of the existing surface and/or dirt to create the appropriate sub-grade and ensure proper water flow is the first step, followed by the installation and compaction of one or more layers of stone to ensure a solid base for the new asphalt. The new asphalt is installed and compacted over the prepared stone base. A new asphalt driveway will last for many years if properly maintained.
Asphalt Driveway Replacement If your driveway is showing wear and tear but the base is still structurally sound, you may be able to use a new layer of asphalt as a driveway overlay. However, if the stone base under the asphalt has begun to fail, or if there are significant cracking and deterioration, the driveway will need to be removed and replaced. Our estimators have more than 40 years of combined experience and will be able to assess what type of service is required to repair your driveway. If the asphalt needs to be replaced, we will remove and haul away the existing asphalt and usually the stone base as well. In some cases, we may be able to grade the existing gravel, add additional gravel, and then compact the stone with a heavy duty roller
Driveway Resurfacing If your asphalt driveway is showing wear and tear, but the base is still structurally sound, you may be able to overlay or cap the driveway with a new layer of asphalt.
Resurfacing a driveway can be considerably less expensive than completely removing, and replacing, an existing driveway, and will still add years of life to your driveway surface.
