Pave-Core Paving has experience as driveway pavers in Kingston and knows how to create an asphalt driveway that excels in these areas and will last up to 20 years if properly cared for.
It starts with laying the granular base, which should be wider than the intended paving surface by about 12 inches (30 cm) on each side. It is also recommended that the depth of excavation be roughly 12 to 18 inches (30 – 45 cm) deep for sandy soil and 18 inches (45 cm) for poorly draining clay soil. It is also worth noting that for new constructions, you should wait for the soil to settle, six to twelve months, before beginning the paving process.
For proper runoff and drainage, the incline should be at least 2%, or ¼ inch (6.5 mm) per foot (30 cm) so that water can flow to the street properly, avoided water infiltration that would cause heaving and cracking. This should ideally be started during the excavation and maintained throughout the process for best results.
When applying the asphalt, it should be 2.5 to 3 inches (60 – 75 mm) thick initially with a thickness of 2 inches (50 mm) thick in all spots once compacted.
Here is a list of maintenance tips from Pave-Core on how you should take care of newly laid asphalt pavements. If it is repeatedly exposed to elements such as water, sunlight and chemicals, the newly applied asphalt surface might begin to breakdown. Not only does the asphalt pavement enhance the visual appearance of your property, it also prevents minor accidents such as trips and falls and prevents damage to vehicles.
