Asphalt Paving involves laying down a fresh layer of asphalt over a prepared foundation and base to create a new driveway or roadway. Asphalt can also be laid over pre-existing asphalt to cover up cracks and pits in the roadway or driveway, providing a fresh, new look. This is called resurfacing and can only be done when the surface is damaged but the integrity of the asphalt's foundation is sound.
Using asphalt for you driveway, roadway, or parking lot creates a beautiful surface to drive on that is both durable and cost-effective. With a proper management plan, asphalt can last for many years. When it does begin to fall apart though, asphalt resurfacing is a less expensive alternative to completely replacing your asphalt. It is used when sealcoating and crackfilling aren't enough to completely repair your asphalt but the base is still stable and has proper drainage.
