Now is the perfect temperature to install your new asphalt driveway. We always advise our asphalt clients to get ahead of the crush before colder weather starts to descend on us in Colorado. Installing a new asphalt surface will need time to cure and harden and you don’t want to be disappointed and have to wait another year. Asphalt road surfaces are one of the best paving options for Colorado and will give you many years of good service with regular maintenance.
Our residential options are designed for cars and medium-weight trucks, and are perfect surfaces for schools, churches and college campuses. Our Asphalt driveway installation materials are similar to that used on roadways, only in a thinner, less expensive mix of aggregate and petroleum products compared to commercial road surfaces.
We pride ourselves in paying so much attention to the preparation and materials used on the base of your asphalt surface. This preparation will ensure that your asphalt driveway is solid and strong and can withstand the snow, water, heat, freezing and thawing that puts a huge strain on paving in Colorado. We pay great attention to cleaning, digging up and raking any roots, loose debris and rocks that may interfere with your final asphalt surface. Compacting the base and asphalt during installation is important as well, or the surface may give way during hot weather. We also have over 40 years experience in correctly sloping your sub base so that the runoff and drainage process keeps your asphalt in great shape. The driveway should have a slope of at least 1/4 inch per foot. Strong blacktop driveways are typically built using crushed angular gravel as a base. This gravel needs to be a minimum of 6 inches thick for light vehicle traffic such as cars and pickup trucks.
Beware of Itinerant driveway construction crews that canvas suburbs wanting to put in a new asphalt driveway, or seal and repair the existing driveway. They often do substandard work with leftover asphalt from other jobs and use below-grade asphalt materials. They don’t pay attention to the base of your driveway and all the preparation that it needs before coating it with the asphalt top surface. If your driveway needs repairs, hire a reputable, local contractor with many years experience and good reviews, to do the job.
