Resurfacing is a structural repair that will increase the lifespan of your driveway, as opposed to seal coating, which is a surface improvement. Resurfacing entails both patching and restoring the entire surface with fresh, hot asphalt. The purpose of seal coating is to improve aesthetic value and increase the lifespan of your asphalt, not to repair structural damage. Additionally, seal coating is frequently less expensive than resurfacing your drive.
Asphalt is essentially all black. When hot asphalt is combined with gravel or stone, the mixture turns black. If the stones were initially light in colour, over time as the asphalt oxidises, the coating breaks down and the stone's colour starts to show, creating the "greyish" hue.
Depending on the temperature variations from day to night, the cure of your new driveway could take up to 30 days. If you are cautious, you should be able to drive on the surface within two to three days. For instance, twisting the steering wheel while the car is not moving can cause tyre scuff marks. If it's a hot day and the asphalt isn't fully cured, the surface will develop a mark resembling what happens when you press your heel into a soft surface.
You need a 2% "fall" in the drive for water to effectively drain off. This indicates that the driveway's grade or angle should be 14" lower for every foot of paved surface. Drains, swales, and curbs are a few of the options available to solve this issue, get in touch with WCI paving and Concrete today.
Your driveway's shoulders or margins are where it is most likely to collapse. The edge may crack or break off if you put a lot of weight on it, such when you drive your car or a lawnmower along it. WCI Ottawa takes actions to relieve pressure. You can also install seeded topsoil against the finished height of the asphalt once the job is complete.
Our emphasis on asphalt quality cannot be overstated. We only buy asphalt from dependable, renowned, and competent suppliers to make sure that our customers receive the best products possible. Asphalt from our suppliers is frequently used in municipal projects, where quality is closely monitored.
