Asphalt is the best finish you can add to your driveways; however, it is important to note that this may not be effective if you do not take into consideration some of its key requirements.

As a company, whether you are looking to do your asphalt driveways for a commercial or residential property, here are some basic requirements for quality asphalt driveways. Quality asphalt driveways highly depend on the foundation. Always ensure that you have a solid subgrade coupled with a strong aggregate base.

In most cases, problems may occur due to poor stabilization of the subgrade. At Big City Asphalt, we always ensure that the ground is free of wet clay before the foundation is set up. In cases where the clay is inevitable, a stone base will suffice. This strong base helps to avoid cracking, buckling, crumbling and other forms of deterioration.

Asphalt driveways may be pleasing to look at, but this may not be the case if you do not take measures to improve its drainage. One of the biggest threats to concrete and asphalt driveways is water, and you do not want to take chances. In this regard, we always strive to ensure that your pavement is free of water by creating proper drainage that drains water from the edges of the pavement.

Asphalt driveways will work best if proper supplies are utilized. By using the wrong pavement mix, for instance, common problems like cracks are bound to happen. As a company, we at Big City Asphalt believe that driveway mixes ought to be more binder and less air voids. This is; however, subject to the terrain and client preference.

Apart from these factors, asphalt driveways also need routine maintenance. We may boast in creating the best asphalt driveways, but our work does not end here. We always strive to offer tips on how the owner can perform frequent maintenance. This may include daily removal of debris, sealcoating, and regular power washing of the asphalt driveways.
