The Process

In order to install a new asphalt driveway, you need professional pavers with extensive experience. We will be sure to determine the correct grade to reinforce your new driveway or support your existing one. We take extra precautions to ensure your asphalt driveway has proper drainage and a smooth, sealed surface.

The ground beneath your driveway should be leveled smoothly and graded to the correct angle so that water drains off the driveway instead of pooling on the surface. This ponding will seep through the driveway, weakening the underlying soil or causing frost heaving.

The key to a long-lasting durable driveway is the granular base underneath. It must be composed of the right materials and have the proper thickness. Course materials such as crushed stone or “conbit”, which is recycled asphalt/concrete, are good aggregates for the base. Fillers, like sand or cement dust, may be added to hold it all together. It is important to use course materials for the base in order to drain water from underneath the driveway. This will prevent ice from forming and cracking the pavement. We will closely examine the base under your driveway to determine if we need to remove or add any material. We will use our high-quality paving equipment and materials to ensure your driveway has the proper foundation to last for many years. Having this foundation will help prevent expensive repairs or maintenance in the future.

We recommend doing preventative maintenance for your driveway on a regular basis, such as removing plant growth, improving drainage, and correcting any unsafe conditions. Corrective maintenance is only done on an as-needed basis for problems such as cracking or specific pavement failures.

Asphalt pavement that is properly created and uses a well-designed mix will construct an excellent driveway that requires little maintenance.
