Site Preparation



Our crew will come in to do the prep work; which may involve just grading your existing gravel base, or removing the old asphalt, or event excavation of grass and dirt for the installation of gravel. The edges will be squared off and cleaned up, and the grade will be determined with a level and/or transit to ensure proper drainage. Once the gravel is properly graded, it is rolled for maximum compaction. We then wait up to a week before we do the paving (less if the base is solid), so that any settling can be touched up before it leads to cracking and sinking of the asphalt. You are welcome to drive on the gravel between the time of the prep work and the paving. When the paving crew arrives final grading will be done if necessary; then the driveway or parking lot will be paved, typically with 2.5" average compacted hot mix asphalt. (Thickness of limestone base and asphalt pavement is always determined based on traffic volume and load requirements.) The asphalt is rolled with a 5-ton vibratory roller for complete compaction and then "cold-rolled" with a smaller 1-ton roller for a smooth finish. Before the crew leaves, they will put caution tape or parking cones across the end of the drive to prevent accidental driving on the asphalt.

 

FYI

Grade is limited to the control points set by existing asphalt, landscaping, and concrete curbing. Drainage MUST be at least 2% or greater to warranty against puddles. Grades with less than 2% drainage are not warrantied against puddles
