Tips to Creating a High-Quality Asphalt Driveway

The paving professionals at Raymond Wolk Paving pride themselves in performing top-notch work and completing your paving projects in a timely manner. R Wolk Paving knows that if asphalt driveways aren’t designed and constructed properly big problems can arise later down the line.

That’s why Raymond Wolk Paving follows certain steps and practices when paving asphalt driveways. To shed some light on some of their success, here are some tips R Wolk Paving would give for creating a high-quality asphalt driveway.

A Solid Foundation: The first step to a beautiful and durable new asphalt driveway is to make sure you lay a strong stone foundation before it’s created. This part of the paving process includes making sure the driveway has the proper subgrade. The paving contractor must remove all soggy clay or soft soil and replace it with stone in order to ensure that the driveway is stabilized.

Proper Drainage: A driveway without proper drainage will experience many problems at some point. Raymond Wolk Paving always makes sure that driveways are built so that water drains away from the edge of the pavement to prevent flooding. The grade of the driveway should also be as such so that water is running away from your home. Installing a French drain, which is a trench filled with rock or gravel and has a pipe that redirects the water, is an excellent way to ensure proper drainage for an asphalt driveway.

Appropriate Materials: The proper techniques and tools can be used to pave an asphalt driveway, but it won’t make much of a difference if the right materials aren’t used for the project. R Wolk Paving always uses the best driveway mix for the job, typically using mixes that have more asphalt binder and less air. For those looking for a smoother finish, Raymond Wolk Paving will use a mix that is finer. But durability is the most important factor to keep in mind when choosing the right driveway mix.

Preferred Practices: Experienced Paving contractors should adhere to the best industry standards and practices when paving your asphalt driveway. Raymond Wolk Paving is dedicated to providing well-executed compacting and tamping of seams and joints, as well as coating and binding to help increase your driveway’s longevity.

Regular Maintenance: When you get a driveway paved by R Wolk Paving, it won’t need as much maintenance as driveways created by some other companies, but it is still important to keep up with normal wear-and-tear that can occur over time. Sealing cracks as soon as their noticed and keeping an eye on the efficiency of your drainage are maintenance tips to keep in mind.
