Typical residential driveways take on the order of hours to prepare and hours to pave while larger commercial work can take days for each step.
Paving can commence immediately following the base preparation as long as factors such as base, schedule and weather allow. Please be aware that most often the base does sit before paving.
Yes, as long as the base is not soft. We can pave if the gravel is wet such as after a rain, as long as the area remains firm.
We will not able to tell for sure. If the ground seems soft under our equipment while we prepare the area we typically recommend a sit time to see if it firms up. If you hire an engineering firm to carry out base compaction testing, please contact our salesman at (519) 871-5101 or (519) 652-0411 to coordinate services.
1 – 3 weeks is a typical sit time. Someone will be back in touch to schedule the paving.
Yes. In most cases, you may use the area once base preparation is complete.
We recommend that you wait 4 days before parking on your driveway. Keep in mind that driveways are designed for light passenger cars only.
In general, newly paved asphalt takes up to two years to fully cure.
Avoid wheel indentations caused by parking vehicles for extended lengths of time, particularly between 11:00 am. and 3:00 p.m during hot summer months.
Avoid turning wheels while your vehicle is stationary.
Avoid placing objects on your new asphalt with high pressure points such as ladders, jacks, bike stands, lawn furniture, etc.
Avoid driving near the edge of the asphalt…this may cause the edge to fail and cracks to develop.
Keep grass along the sides of the asphalt trimmed short at all times to reduce the opportunity for roots to grow under the edge and cracks to form.
Avoid downspouts discharging and pooling water next to your driveway as this softens the base and will case the asphalt to fail.
Also avoid water from surrounding landscapes from pooling next to your driveway as this may add undue moisture to the pavement base.
Backfill edge of asphalt within about two weeks after paving to support the asphalt edge.
Clean up oil spills as soon as possible after occurrence. Dilute the surface with soap and water. Gas leak damage to asphalt can only be repaired by removing the asphalt and replacing. It is an unsightly repair to be avoided when possible.
Asphalt sealing is not required. Please note that sealing the asphalt will void all warranties.
