When constructing a new driveway the first step is to establish the desired grade and drainage. Next, an aggregate base course is placed to an average depth of 8” of ¾” gravel and compacted. Finally, a specifically-designed asphalt mix is applied to present a finished surface based on the customer’s needs. We use an HL3A hot mix design that offers more durability than the regular HL2A, HM3, and other driveway mix designs available.
Deterioration of asphalt can occur as a result of lack of maintenance, overuse, or simply living past its life expectancy. In such cases, old asphalt pavement may need to be removed and replaced. In this case an aggregate base course is ensured by checking that the existing base has a minimum average depth of 8” of ¾” gravel, using existing gravel where possible, and adding as required. After final grading the base course is duly compacted. Finally, a specifically-designed asphalt mix is applied.
After a new asphalt driveway has cured for approximately 6 months to a year, it can be sealed. You can apply a contractor-grade seal coat material yourself fairly easily, or you can hire a contractor. A good coal-tar emulsion sealer helps keep the sun from drying out the oils or binder from the asphalt and it also provides a watertight seal. Depending on usage and sun exposure, the sealer should be applied every 3 to 4 years. Maintenance is very important if you want to get the maximum life out of your asphalt.
At Pro Pavement Services Ltd. we choose hot mix asphalt because it's proven to provide years of lasting service and an excellent return on investment. It’s an engineered mixture of aggregate, or stones and sand, with liquid asphalt cement – a petroleum product. The end result is a strong and durable driveway that is designed to withstand freezing and thawing. Plus, unlike alternative materials such as concrete, repairs are quicker and easier to perform.
