Residential Asphalt Paving:
What You Need To Know
Paving your own driveway isn’t the simple home improvement project some make it out to be. In fact, it can be a real hassle, and not only if you choose to do it yourself. Searching for paving contractors alone can bring its own problems and pitfalls—sometimes even scams.
And even a contractor who might be adequate or decent is liable to make more than a few major mistakes if they don’t have enough experience, because paving a driveway isn’t just about setting down asphalt. It’s about much, much more, such as:
How are you going to preserve the surrounding area and natural landscape, so the driveway doesn’t become a massive eyesore over the years?
What about measurements for width depending on how many automobiles are expected to use the driveway at any given time? Or determining the thickness in regards to specific design requirements?
How about deciding on a sub-grade, or planning around potential utilities, or taking care to make sure the topsoil isn’t too disrupted or damaged?
There’s a lot that goes into a simple strip of asphalt that makes it a not-so-simple job from start to finish. Give yourself peace of mind and let G&G handle your driveway, so you don’t have to.
