A BREAKDOWN DURING THE DRIVEWAY PAVING PROCESS

Are you looking for ways to improve your gravel driveway? Paving is an excellent way to increase curb appeal and lower exterior maintenance. Paved driveways can be aesthetically pleasing and easy to maintain during all seasons and in every type of weather, we experience in Virginia.

How does paving your driveway work? Let's look at the driveway paving in Norfolk VA process so that you understand what to expect when hiring a Virginia professional paving company.

PHASE I: REMOVAL

Remove any existing driveway materials before you can prepare for a new asphalt driveway. You will need to remove any existing gravel driveways or pavers that have been damaged. The process of replacing an existing driveway will involve tearing it apart with a saw or another cutting tool, and then lifting it up with heavy machinery. The paving company disposes of the pieces once they are all removed.

PHASE 2 PREPARATION

Once the driveway has been removed, you will need to prepare the area to allow for the installation of the new driveway. It may be sufficient to replace the gravel that was used as the base for the old driveway. Once the gravel has been placed it is used to create a pitch drainage scheme for the driveway, so that rainwater does not pool on the driveway. The gravel is then compacted by a large roller, leaving no gaps between stones. This step is crucial because it helps prevent future cracks or sinkholes.

PHASE 3 INSTALLATION

After the ground has been prepared, the new driveway can then be installed using a paver machine. This pours the asphalt or concrete, which is then flattened before being rolled smooth. After the asphalt layer is removed, the finished driveway will be cured in approximately 24-48 hours. This ensures that the concrete or asphalt has proper hardening and durability.
