7 Step Driveway Paving Project Process
Paving an Asphalt Driveway in California:
- Site Preparation: We begin by marking the project surface area. Then remove any existing driveway materials, vegetation, or debris.
- Grade the Driveway: We make sure that the slope moves away from structures for proper drainage and preventing water accumulation.
- Sub-base Application: We Lay a crushed stone sub-base. This offers structural strength to add durability and improve drainage.
- Asphalt Mixing: For California’s climate, we ensure a mix that resists softening in high temperatures and prevents cracking in cooler months.
- Laying the Asphalt: We spread the hot asphalt mix uniformly. Using heavy machinery, like a steamroller, to compact it, ensuring a smooth and even surface.
- Curing: We allow the asphalt to settle and cure for a few days. It’s important to avoid heavy loads during this period.
- Sealing: After a few months, We may apply a seal coat to protect the asphalt from UV rays, chemicals, and water penetration.
