Excavate & Base

Is the type of base materials used important?

Yes, first it is very important to have a base that combines the right amount of rocks and fines to allow for the proper amount of compaction.

Why do asphalt driveways sometimes sink by the garage?

Asphalt is more likely to sink in the first three to five feet out from your garage floor. Concrete aprons are the most successful in bridging over the area and not sinking if installed properly.

Why does the base need to sit so long before you can begin the next phase?

It is important to allow a 1 to 3 week period of time to allow the base to stabilize and harden before coming in with heavy equipment.

Why is basing important?

Basing is critical for creating a strong and stable foundation for your concrete or asphalt.

Why is the base work important for retaining walls?

Just like concrete and asphalt, the basing supports the structure.
