New Asphalt Driveway Construction
When you contact us for a free estimate for a new asphalt driveway, one of our experienced estimators will visit your property. They will measure the asphalt or concrete driveway, evaluate the site conditions, and answer any questions you have. Using the information gathered on site they will create a customized proposal for your consideration. In order for a residential driveway to be a good investment, it must be properly constructed. If you currently have a gravel driveway, or stone driveway, the first step to installing a new asphalt driveway is to properly prepare the site. Excavation and removal of the existing gravel and/or dirt to create the appropriate sub-grade and insure proper water flow is followed by the installation and compaction of one or more layers of stone to insure 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 is significant cracking and deterioration, the driveway will need to be removed and replaced. Our estimators have more than 50 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 stone, add additional stone, and then compact the stone with a heavy duty roller.
If your asphalt or concrete 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.
