New Asphalt Driveway Construction

Do you want a new asphalt driveway paving or asphalt pavement from scratch? We’re the construction team if you require long-lasting results for your paving project. We:

We will excavate the area to accommodate the new material. Usually 8-10 inches depending on the soil condition. We will pre-compact the soil before installing the stone base.

We then lay an aggregate base to ensure proper drainage. The aggregate base will consist of stone. We will install 6-8 inches and compact in 2 layer.

Our next step in construction is to pave the driveway.

Once we’ve installed the final pavement layer, we will roll the asphalt while it is still hot to ensure maximum compaction.

Asphalt Driveway Extension

An asphalt driveway that is too short looks out of place. One that is too narrow for the vehicles that use it may wear more quickly. Consider widening or extending it instead of paying for a new asphalt driveway within the next couple of years.

Extending or widening your driveway paving can be painless if you hire the correct contractor. Buck Brothers Asphalt Paving & Concrete plan every detail ahead of time to ensure a the smooth removal of your existing driveway and the installation of the new extended driveway.

Asphalt Residential Driveway Maintenance

It may become necessary to sealcoat and crack fill your asphalt driveway in Northwest Ohio because:

Temperature extremes cause the expanding and contracting of your pavement or driveway.
Without proper sealing, the porous asphalt surface or pavement soaks up moisture. During cold winters, this freezes and causes the asphalt to contract. When the summer heat sets in, porous asphalt expands, weakening the surface.

Moisture may also erode and destabilize the base material, leading to cracks. These gaps admit more water, worsening the above mentioned effects and causing potholes.

Over time, the elements and use degrade the asphalt surface of driveways.
Stains, tire tread, and dirt accumulation make driveways shabby over time.

Plants may root themselves in holes in the asphalt paving or residential driveway, further degrading the material.

Sealcoating also protects the driveway from UV damage.

We may advise sealcoating an asphalt area with mild signs of wear. However, we use skin or depth patches where there are gaps. We use skin patches for superficial damage and depth patches to fix base layer damage.

We perform asphalt removal first to ensure a clean join with the newly installed material. We then compact the soil and lay the stone base to ensure proper drainage. The next step is to lay the hot mix and roll the surface to ensure that the area is compacted correctly.

When sealcoating an asphalt pavement, it’s crucial to prepare every layer correctly. Extra care during construction ensures that your newly installed driveway surfaces last.

Why is Regular Maintenance Crucial?

A contractor will always advise proper maintenance to maximize your return on investment. Repairing small holes and superficial damage prevents further damage due to moisture seepage or erosion.

Sealcoating can perk up the look of a driveway installed long ago. As long as the underlying structure is still in good shape, you don’t need a completely new asphalt driveway. Why go to the expense and inconvenience of new construction unless absolutely necessary?

Other reasons to conduct proper maintenance and repairs in a timely manner include:

To reduce hazards on your property and thereby manage potential liability issues. Damage to persons or vehicles due to poor maintenance may prove costly for you

You save money by dealing with minor problems before they progress
Cracking in asphalt paving is far easier to solve before there is damage to the base layer

By managing repairs as they come up, you reduce the risk of expensive emergency repairs later

Answers to Common Questions about Asphalt

What is asphalt?

Asphalt is a mixture of aggregate, sand, filler, and binder used for constructing and maintaining driveways, sidewalks, parking lots, sports areas, roads, and other surfaces. The aggregates may include rock, gravel, and slags.

Today, some manufacturers also use various waste and by-products like construction and demolition debris as aggregates.

What are the benefits of asphalt?

The most significant benefit of asphalt paving is that it is cost-effective for installation and maintenance. It is durable, safe, and reliable with proper maintenance.

Many property owners also choose this paving product for its high recyclability.

Does asphalt come in other colors besides black?

Asphalt is generally black. However, by mixing this paving product with various additives, you can get other colors and styles.

What is asphalt sealcoating?

Sealcoating involves applying a thin liquid layer over your driveway, parking lot, or other surfaces to protect them against the elements.

Over time, oils, rain, and various chemicals can result in an unsightly and unsafe brittle surface. Many property owners prefer maintaining their pavement with sealcoating.

What is the difference between sealcoating and resurfacing?

Resurfacing is a structural repair that will extend the lifespan of your asphalt parking lot, driveway, or any other surface. It involves patching and resurfacing the old asphalt surface with a new asphalt overlay of about 1.5 to 3 inches.

On the other hand, sealcoating does not involve structural repair. Adding a fresh asphalt layer is just like painting your house. While the seal coat will protect and extend your asphalt’s life, it will not fix the structural defects on your existing driveway or other surfaces.

Sealcoating is generally more cost-effective than resurfacing your asphalt paving.

How often should I apply a seal coat on asphalt pavement?

You should apply seal coating every one to three years, depending on the traffic your asphalt driveway or parking lot receives.

What causes plants to grow in the middle of asphalt paving?

Plant or grass seeds that find their way beneath the surface before paving can sprout in the driveway or parking lot.

Highly compacted surfaces usually experience minimal vegetative growths. You may need to use chemical sprays to decimate grass appearing on your asphalt driveway.

How long can I wait to use my driveway

New asphalt driveways take over 30 days to cure, depending on the weather conditions.

Generally, however, you can drive on the surface after 24 to 48 hours without worrying about tire marks if you are careful.

Why shouldn’t I apply asphalt driveway paving during winter?

Paving projects use hot-mix asphalt. Therefore, it is best to pave during warm weather rather than the cold winter. The asphalt mix should remain hot to compact and perform properly.

Cold temperatures will chill the hot mixture during transportation from the production plant to your property.
