Asphalt is a great alternative to concrete for many reasons. Asphalt pavement is known for its durability and is generally a fraction of the cost than concrete. Another benefit is that it is much quicker to lay and cure resulting in a much faster construction time. Most large parking lot and facility projects can be fully completed within a day or two. We also specialize in repairs and maintenance for existing asphalt. Over time asphalt can begin to break down due to water, sunlight, chemicals, poor maintenance or because it was improperly constructed when it was installed. Our repair crews use numerous techniques including overlays, patching and seal coating to bring back the appearance and performance of your asphalt.
Our process for removing and replacing blacktop driveways is rather simple and starts with the dig out. In order to make room for your new blacktop driveway, your old driveway must be removed. With the aid of heavy machinery, our skilled operators will dig out and haul away existing concrete and asphalt, making sure not to damage any permanent structures. The next step involves making a sub-cut and removing the old base material. After the sub-cut has been made a minimum of 4 inches of processed gravel is installed and compacted. Drainage is also set at this time, making sure that water goes where it should. There is no drainage issue we can't handle. For each asphalt project we do, we determine a plan for drainage before the job starts. If the job is not constructed correctly, it will not stand the test of time. When the base material has firmed up enough to pave, the new asphalt can be installed. We install all new asphalt surfaces with state of the art equipment and a level of expertise you cannot find with ANY other company. After the asphalt has been laid and compacted it needs time to cure.
