- Do you offer a warranty on your work?
All of our work comes with a 12 month warranty.
- What do I need to do the day of paving?
We will need full access to the site with garage doors open, if present. Please remove all vehicles from the work site.
- How long must I stay off the new asphalt paving?
It is best to wait at least 24 hours before driving on the new surface. We often advise that you wait longer during hot weather. Following installation, be sure to follow a regular preventative maintenance plan, including sealcoating and crack filling, to keep your asphalt looking its best.
- How do I maintain my asphalt to keep it looking good for years to come?
There are many things you can do to keep your asphalt paving looking great. Killing weeds along the edges, treating any oil or gas spills, filling any open cracks, and keeping the pavement sealed will greatly extend the life of any asphalt surface.
- Can you pave in winter?
Yes, we are able to pave in winter. While there are days the weather prevents us from paving; heavy rain, extreme cold. We do consistently pave throughout the winter months.
- What is the difference between overlay and remove/replace?
Overlay is when you pave asphalt on top of the existing asphalt. Depending on the situation overlaying can be a cost effective situation. Drainage is key to whether or not overlaying is a possibility. Removing and replacing the asphalt is the longer lasting solution. Asphalt that is extremely damaged and sunken must be removed and replaced.
- Why is asphalt paved hot?
Asphalt comes from the plant at around 300 degrees. It should be paved and compacted before dropping below 200 degrees.
- How thick should my asphalt be?
The thickness of the asphalt depends on the vehicles that will be driving on it. 2-3 inches after compaction is standard, however we will pave up to 8 inches depending on type of traffic.
- How long does it take sealcoat to dry?
Two things affect the dry time for sealcoat. The first is the temperature outside, the second being sun exposure. Depending on these factors it can be a matter of hours or up to a full day.
