What type of paving is right for you?
New Asphalt Paving
This option is a brand new asphalt driveway paved over a shaped and compacted rock base. This is ideal for new house construction, re-models, walkways, outdoor basketball courts, parking areas or simply upgrading from a gravel driveway.
An overlay involves putting a layer of tack (asphalt adhesive) followed by a thin layer of asphalt over existing asphalt. Overlays are a cheaper alternative to digging out and repaving a worn area or an older asphalt driveway. Ideal for older asphalt driveways showing signs of age (minor raveling, minor rutting, minor cracking.)
Cut and Patching
Cutting and patching involves saw cutting an area out of existing asphalt, digging it out, and replacing it with new asphalt. This option is sometimes combined with an overlay when existing asphalt damage is too severe to overlay by itself. Cutting and patching is ideal for major worn areas, severe rutting, sink holes and alligatoring.
Asphalt berms are generally used to redirect water flow.
