Our process begins with excavation and grading of driveway, as well as compaction of base, before pouring the asphalt. Most home owners have a driveway paved with 2.5 inches of asphalt wearing course paved over the stone base (also called finish blacktop). We suggest having base asphalt laid over a stone base, and then paving the asphalt top, which makes for a longer lasting and stronger driveway. This durable process is especially useful if you have delivery trucks coming on to the driveway. We believe this additional investment at the time of installation is a far better choice compared to having to remove the old driveway and install a new driveway. You’ll save in the long run.
Asphalt resurfacing is having machine laid asphalt paved over your old driveway. Your driveway may need some repair and leveling before it is resurfaced; if it is not in too bad of condition, resurfacing can save thousands of dollars when completed properly.
