  • ResurfacingAsphalt resurfacing, aka, “mill and overlay” is a great way to refresh a driveway that is over 10 years old. It removes the worn asphalt layer on top, and a new layer of asphalt is added on top. Resurfacing asphalt gives it a new lease on life, and makes your driveway brand new, without needing to tear out and replace it entirely.
  • Asphalt Repair – If your driveway has holes, or areas that are crumbling, we can fix it and make your driveway smooth again. We fix issues like tree roots growing through your driveway, alligator cracking, potholes, and bumps that are making it uncomfortable to drive on. Some of the most common types of repairs we perform are smoothing out bumps at start of driveways, fixing driveways after utility repairs, and patching holes. 
  • Crackfilling – Filling cracks helps prevent extensive damage from water intrusion. If cracks are not fixed, they can widen. Small cracks should be cleaned of debris and filled with a high quality crack sealer before they become large cracks that are too big to repair. Rubberized crack filler is one of the best ways to repair cracks that are dynamic and may shift in the future due to subtle shifting in the earth. Asphalt-based crack sealers are best for static cracks. 
  • Sealcoating – If you have an older driveway, it may benefit from an application of driveway sealer. Sealcoating your driveway protects asphalt from oil spills, water infiltration through hairline cracks, and drying ultraviolet rays from the sun. There are a few different types of sealant, and we can help you choose the best one for your asphalt. Coal tar sealers, and asphalt emulsion sealants are two of the most popular options. Based on your budget and what has been used on your driveway before, one may be better than the other.

Why Driveway Maintenance is Important

An asphalt driveway is an investment. To make sure it lasts as long as possible, and can be resurfaced as it nears the end of its life span, it is important to perform repairs when damage occurs. Water that gets through the broken surface of asphalt can get trapped and then expand during freeze-thaw cycles, causing pressure on asphalt, and then melt, leaving behind a void. This often causes holes. 

Preventative maintenance, such as crackfilling and sealcoating will also keep asphalt in good shape. Water is one of the main reasons that asphalt deteriorates. Crackfilling and sealcoating will help prevent water from infiltrating the base of your pavement.
