An asphalt driveway can add beauty to a home and certainly increase the curb appeal while leaving the owners proud of their property. What could be wrong with this. Well, sometimes the asphalt driveway can look bad with cracks, pot holes, heaved areas, spider webbing or an area of alligator-like cracking.
Driveway Paving in Norwich, CT offer several repairs which will make your driveway look like new. Conventional patching is a long term solution which involves cutting out the problem asphalt down to the sub-base and installing and compacting 2 inches of hot bituminous binder, followed by installing and compacting 1 inch of hot bituminous concrete. These products are intended to be level with the existing pavement. The paving joint is then sealed with a special asphalt sealer.
Certain areas of the driveway can be cut, and bituminous concrete can be installed over the problem spot. The joints should be sealed.
Surface deterioration of the driveway can be caused by the sun and the rain along with chemicals left by cars. Oxidation is a sign of aging, fatigue, and the general surface deterioration. The cracks that form in the driveway will allow water to get down to the sub-base and cause major damage and add to the deterioration of the driveway.
Crack sealing is not only the most important preventative maintenance procedure you can do, but repairing cracks before they become too big is extremely important. If they are not repaired, then they will eventually grow to be an unsavory sight to look at, and they will result in expensive repairs. Water entering into the sub-base will create problems with the sub-base and with the surface of the driveway. Driveway Paving in Norwich, CT prevents the need for extensive repairs. Read more
