Asphalt Paving What to Look For
Driveway Paving Guys, Athens, WI has seen enough to now Asphalt Paving is rough and brittle, and as a result, breaks will formulate over time. Varying from hairline to an inch wide or more, cracks are your driveway's worst enemy because they let water in. In colder climates, freeze-thaw cycles can be very destructive, and can wreak havoc on your driveway if water penetrates the cracks, then expands as it turns to ice. And even in warmer climates, water penetration can cause significant damage. The bigger the crack, the more serious the problem, and the sooner it needs to be fixed. Cracks that are left un-repaired will lead to severe deterioration of the pavement and even to the base layers, requiring complete replacement of the driveway - sooner rather than later in colder climates.
Can it be fixed or do you need a new Asphalt Paving?
Driveway Paving Guys feels that whether you'll need to tear out your existing Asphalt Paving and install a new one, or if you can get away with resurfacing - or even some patchwork and crack-filling - depends largely on the condition of the base layers, or foundation. However in Athens, WI, if cracking covers 3/4 of the driveway, the surface is too far gone to repair. The root of the problems may come from lower down, and a complete overhaul should be considered.
If your driveway has been resurfaced many times with hot mix asphalt and keeps deteriorating too soon, it is likely a problem with the foundation, and you should think about installing new Asphalt Paving. If you live around in Athens, WI you can phone 888-487-8118 and let one of our expert contractors come have a look.

Reputable contractors in Athens, WI calculate the materials they need very carefully, and any small amount left over from a job would never be enough to complete an entire new job. 888-487-8118
