Some important factors to consider before deciding to schedule your new asphalt driveway:

Weather – Now is the ideal time to install, repair or resurface your asphalt driveway.   The ground is not too wet or too cold which will allow for the perfect conditions needed to install a good driveway.   The sub-grade or foundation for your asphalt driveway will be the most important support for your new driveway; the sub-grade must be smooth, firm and it should be contoured to match the layout of the driveway. To ensure a proper sub-grade installation, weather conditions should not be extreme. If the sub-grade contains too much moisture, or is frozen with moisture, your driveway may be compromised later down the line.

 Asphalt Driveways offer High Performance

Asphalt driveways are quick to install and offer up to 20 years of good lifespan with proper care and maintenance.  Once the subgrade has been correctly installed the driveway could be done in a day or two.   Asphalt performs really well in cold climates because the material is very pliable.   With the freeze and thaw cycles in Colorado, asphalt can be very forgiving and tolerate the movement.   Asphalt also soaks up the suns heat and melts snow a lot faster in winter.

Good Drainage

The most important technical challenge for an asphalt company is to install an asphalt driveway with the right angle to pitch water away from the driveway.   This correct water runoff will determine the long life of your asphalt and prevent potholes and cracks from forming.   An experienced team of asphalt installers will know exactly which way to angle your driveway for future runoff and snow melts.

GOOD SUBGRADES FOR ASPHALT PAVING

With most of the world now using motorized vehicles to move products, people and livestock from one place to the next the asphalt industry has an obligation to provide strong, smooth, attractive options for vehicles to move safely and comfortably to get the job done.

When planning an asphalt surface, the thickness of the surface is determined by the quantity and quality of the subgrade materials. Asphalt surfaces are typically built up by a layered system of various materials and each layer contributes to the overall strength and function of the structure. Most parking lots and pavements in Denver are built on a smooth foundation of native subgrade soils with a dense, graded aggregate forming the working platform for the asphalt paving materials to be laid. When the placement and compaction of the soil and aggregate layers, two or more layers of asphalt are added to complete the asphalt surface. These two layers usually consist of an asphalt base layer and an asphalt surface layer.


Another important factor to be taken into account is good surface drainage and good subgrade drainage. Laying the rock so that the water can reach out and not gather in low areas, causing puddles and eventually potholes.

Designing and building new pavement systems requires a thorough understanding of the soils, rocks, and drainage that will go into the foundation of the asphalt pavement or driveway. If all these factors are correctly taken into account, you will have a strong, durable, good looking asphalt surface that will last for many years.

COLD WEATHER EMERGENCY PATCHING AND POTHOLE REPAIR

When roads have been resurfaced and the subgrade is not repaired beforehand then you may end up with water damming and eventually cracking and forming potholes.  These situations call for emergency repairs, especially in winter weather.  These repairs will be temporary in nature and are done very quickly to avoid accidents and damage to your car. There are various methods that are used for this temporary fix.

 

TAG: Asphalt Seal Coat Denver CO | Asphalt Sealing Denver CO | Denver Asphalt | Driveway Estimate Denver CO

 

The quickest and least expensive method is Throw-and-Go which offers no heavy compaction. The pothole is filled with asphalt which is left slightly higher than the rim of the hole relying on traffic to compact it.

This temporary method requires that water and debris be removed from the pothole. All loose asphalt and stones eating into the good asphalt are cut back and squared-off. The Throw-and-Roll method cleans the debris and water from the pothole with a stiff broom, or air blower, filling the pothole with asphalt material, leaving a 1/8 or ¼ inch crown. The material is compacted with a hand tamper or with the truck tires.

In both crack sealing and pothole patching, vigilance is important. Don’t wait until the driveway is in poor condition to schedule the work.  Inspect the paving before distress makes the necessary resurfacing or patching before too much damage is done.

SHOVEL THROUGHOUT WINTER TO PROTECT YOUR ASPHALT

Asphalt paving and driveways will benefit during the winter months if you regularly remove the snow build up. The shovel is asphalt’s best friend if used correctly. Removing the snow prevents water stagnation and buildup on the surface of the asphalt. Using a plow has to be done carefully so that preexisting potholes and cracks that haven’t been repaired ahead of winter are not damaged further.

Keep in mind that de-icing fluid has a limited ability to prevent further ice from forming and is not a good option as it can be very harmful to animals, plants and the water table in general. Even though de-icing salts do not deteriorate, asphalt research shows that they do lead to increased salinity in our drinking water, lakes, rivers, and other waterways. There are non-toxic natural de-icers now available so do your homework and make a wiser choice for the safety of the environment.

Wrap up warm and be safe this winter!

WHY RESTRIPING YOUR PARKING LOT IS VITAL

It’s always easy to put off redoing the stripes and parking space holders on your asphalt paving.  If you are living in an area that has seasonal temperature fluctuations it is important to resurface your asphalt and redo the striping of your parking lot to keep the safety and aesthetics of the asphalt working well and looking good.

TAG: Parking Lot Repairs Denver CO | Asphalt Contractor Denver CO | Asphalt Driveway Estimate Denver CO | Asphalt Repair Denver CO | Asphalt Seal-Coat Denver CO | Paving Services Denver CO

Building owners tend to leave this task too late and this can cause accidents to occur with traffic as well as tire damage with potholes appearing. Good marking and striping which is clearly visible day or night, rain or shine are very important to keep traffic flowing safely and pedestrians walking in the safe zones. There is nothing more annoying than a lawsuit from someone who has been hurt in your parking lot.

Clear, concise markings for walkways, pedestrian crossings, and wheelchair parking allowances are one of the most important markings in your parking area. Good striping will prevent confusion between cars and people and keep a good clear flow of your arriving and departing traffic. These markings have to have very consistent sizing for cars and walkways so it’s always important to contact a reputable company like Bradley Asphalt to redo these surfaces and get the striping back up to near perfect.

There are also the benefits of adding value and curb appeal for your shop owners and tenants. This will convey a professional image to your customers and encourage them to use your services.

SEASONS GREETINGS TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AND CUSTOMERS

When you take the trouble to lay a beautiful asphalt driveway, you should take the trouble to maintain it to gain many years of great service from your asphalt driveway and paving.

The first thing to take care of is the sealing of your asphalt. This sealing will give a good protection barrier to the asphalt and prolong the life of your paving.

TAG: Driveway Repair Denver CO | Asphalt Denver CO | Asphalt Paving Companies Denver CO | asphalt companies Denver CO | asphalt contractor Denver CO | asphalt driveway estimate Denver CO | asphalt repair Denver CO

Next you must repair any hairline cracks that appear with resurfacing every few years.

Lastly you should remove oil stains safely to keep the look of your asphalt driveway in tip top condition. These oil stains will spoil the beauty of your driveway and could even drop the value of your property.

If you have a larger parking lot which services many cars daily, this is a must.   Removing the oil stains from the asphalt surface before sealcoating your parking lot is very important to protect this valuable asset and keep the value of the building up.

By using a good degreaser you will protect the environment as well as the asphalt.  Using a universal asphalt degreaser and simply following the instructions to remove the stains will be a good do it yourself project.   If the area to be cleaned is too large it might be wise for you to call in the professionals to help with this very messy job.   We at Bradley Asphalt will be happy to answer any questions and no job is too small for us to help with so give us a call:

THIN LIFT ASPHALT OVERLAYS

Thin lift asphalt overlay is a good option to repair and restore an asphalt paving and road surface that is not too damaged and just needs a facelift. Some types of thin lift asphalt are designed for rainwater runoff to drain through the asphalt, onto the lower aggregate and will drain away excess water.

To get an exact shelf life of these various thin lift asphalt depends largely on the initial damage to the existing surface.  If the surface has extensive damage and cracking to the asphalt paving or road surface, the thin lift asphalt could perhaps extend the life of your asphalt by a year or two.  If the surface is in need of a quick facelift then sealing with the thin lift asphalt could offer you up to 15 years of life.   One thing to take into account when you have a very uneven, potholed and cracked surface – a thin lift asphalt will probably restore the surface by about 50% smoothness. If the existing pavement or road is not 100 percent structurally sound, it’s still possible to lay a thin lift asphalt overlay if it can be brought to a structurally sound condition by localized repairs first.

If you are interested in this type of overlay, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.   We would be happy to advise you!

We, at @Bradley Asphalt Services,  have been in the business for over 30 years and have found that no problem is too big or too small for us.   We are always available to meet with you and give you our honest, expert advice on how to improve the value of your home with a decent Asphalt Driveway and entrance.  Once we have repaired or replaced your Asphalt Driveway, the curb appeal of your home will be greatly elevated and you will be proud to show your home.

REPAIR ASPHALT CRACKS BEFORE WINTER

Low temperatures and snow in Colorado, are the leading factors for crack formation in your driveway. The greatest culprit is water seeping into the cracks and sitting under the asphalt which eventually destroys the underlying base of the asphalt. Once this damage has travelled, it is far more costly to address these problems than taking care of the smaller cracks as they appear.

Repairing the cracks before the snow sets in can achieve optimal bond results from the repair compound. Preparing your asphalt driveway before winter will give you many more years of good, solid use than waiting for the major cracks to appear.

5 Preparation Tips For Your Asphalt Driveway.

  1.  Repair Cracks

If cracks are visible, repairing cracks should be on top of your to-do list to prevent erosion of the sub base. Contact us to repair and seal the cracks before the first winter snowstorm.

  1.  Sealcoat Your Driveway

After repairing larger cracks, sealcoating will fill the smaller and tiny cracks to prevent water penetration. 

  1.  Inspect Your Driveway and the Surrounding Area

Inspecting your driveway and the surrounding area for cracks before seasonal changes can avoid bigger and costlier problems in the future.

  1. Check for Good Drainage

The biggest risk during winter months is water damage. To avoid water damage during winter, check for pooling and standing water and make sure your driveway has good drainage.

  1.  Keep the Driveway Clean

Give your driveway a good clean and remove dirt and debris to improve drainage and avoid water damage throughout winter.
