Resurfacing

img_4946Not all damaged and worn out driveways need to be replaced. We can do what is called a resurface or overlay. When the underlying base is still good, the second layer of asphalt can be applied. The first step is to level all low areas if required. A 2″ layer of asphalt is applied and compacted with a mechanical roller to 1½”.

Resurfaced driveways can last as long as a new driveway. It is important to begin and maintain your new driveway with sealant the following year and thereafter.

Replacement

When resurfacing is no longer an option, the next solution to a deteriorating driveway is a replacement. Asphalt is removed, the new stone base material is applied, and 2 ½’ of asphalt is rolled and compacted to 2″. It is important to begin and maintain your new driveway with sealant the following year and thereafter.

Repairs

We don’t usually recommend this be done on driveways because of the high cost. It is more cost-effective to replace the asphalt.

Overstone

Homeowners with gravel driveways may choose to pave them. Gravel driveways already have a base in place but will need additional stone base material added before paving. The stone base is graded and compacted. 2 ½” of asphalt is applied, rolled and compacted to 2″. It is important to begin and maintain your new driveway with sealant the following year and thereafter.
