Driveway paving installation is typically a large investment, but well worth the expense. Hiring the right contractor ensures that you get a result that will serve you and your family for a long time to come.
Asphalt driveway pavements are usually done in three to four layers. The foundation must be properly installed or it can lead to cracking. It consists of a coarse aggregate base, made of gravel and sand mixed together. The second is the base-layer of asphalt, which is made of heavier aggregate like crushed stone or slate pieces. Finally the blacktop layer is laid down. It is made of bitumen, much like an oil that forms a tough water-resistant layer when exposed to air and sun.
As you can see, a good asphalt paving job requires more work to achieve a high quality product compared with other less labor-intensive pavement types. However it is a good choice, and a popular option even for major commercial projects, because it’s one of the most durable surfaces available, making it ideal for heavy traffic areas and extreme weather.
Your new driveway will have longest possible life when installed and maintained professionally. Asphalt corporations and paving professionals go through special training and education to learn how to install new driveways that will last for many years.
