Asphalt Driveways

Can the area in front of the garage be repaired with asphalt?

What is asphalt concrete?

"Asphalt concrete" is another common term used for asphalt.

When should you seal your asphalt driveway?

Your new asphalt driveway does not need to be sealed until the second year after installation.

Why choose asphalt over concrete?

People typically choose asphalt over concrete driveways due to cost.

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.
