This is a procedure that only top paving companies will even be able to attempt. Basically what we do is we remove an entire layer of asphalt from the road, and we smooth out the sheet that was located below. This is a great way to get the most out of your older driveways. What we see a lot is that people want to continue to seal their driveways to try and extend their overall lifespan. After a while though that may not be such a viable option. What you will essentially be doing is piling up more and more asphalt. This process does the opposite.
A Cost-Effective Option
Having your driveway resurfaced can turn out to be, a very cost-effective option. The reason we say that is, that it will not be as expensive as completely redoing the whole thing. Yet, it will be most of the times a better option than just sealing it and sealing it again. One thing that we have to remember though is that not all driveways are going to be perfect candidates for this procedure. That is why as a consumer it is crucial that you hire an expert service such as ourselves to get the job done for you or be honest with you!
When We Can’t Resurface Your Driveway
As we mentioned, there are instances where we are going to refuse to provide this service. These situations only occur though when you have a driveway that has foundation issues. In these cases, most of the cracks that you have are going to resurface even after we remove the top layer and replace it with the new one because the break occurred more rooted in the soil. We need to be able to asses that to guarantee that you won’t have any more cracks. One of the best ways to actually do that may be to replace the entire driveway!
How Much Will It Extend The Lifespan of My Driveway?
When a resurfacing service is performed, the idea is that the driveway’s lifespan will ultimately be extended by an extensive number of years. That is one of the reasons why we take our time finding out if your driveway can be resurfaced or should be resurfaced. If the foundation of the road is stable there is no reason that we would have to doubt that the new asphalt so to speak, could remain in the right conditions for an extended amount of time.
Leave it To The Pros
The main reason that only some paving companies will attempt something like this is the fact that not all of them have the experience or the know how. This is a process that is going to require delicate work so that we actually remove some of the asphalt covering to the point where we will be able to reach that second level. Then, it is not just about laying down a new asphalt coating. It has to be done the right way to make sure it will have an excellent chance to succeed!
