Learning About Paving Contractor Services

Hello, my name is Rick. Welcome to my website about paving contractor services. When I purchased my commercial site, I had to immediately renovate the driveway and walkways to suit them to my needs. I contacted a paving contractor to discuss the paving options available for the job at hand. I was overwhelmed with all of the available materials and build techniques for my paving project. I finally settled on the best one for my place of business with help from my paving contractor. I will explore paving options and build techniques on my site to help other people find the perfect combination for their project. Thanks.

Preparing Your Driveway For Winter

Blog

Fall has arrived and, for many areas, that means snow can follow rather quickly. This time of year can be hard enough for you to survive. It's also hard on your driveway. Before the snow and ice arrive, you can take some steps to help your driveway weather the weather.

Seal It

If you cannot remember the last time you sealed your driveway, it's probably past time to do it again. Every year, winter can cause your driveway to accumulate small cracks and holes. The more they freeze and refreeze, the bigger these openings get. If you neglect these small cracks for long, you will end up having to repave your driveway. Buying and applying a commercial sealant can fill in these small cracks and protect your driveway surface from everyday wear and tear. If a number of vehicles use the driveway, it's even more important that you regularly use this sealer.

Patch It

If your driveway already has large cracks or a dreaded pothole or two, you need to patch it before you seal it. If the damage is not too severe, you can use a patching material bought at a home improvement store to do the job. First, you will need to remove all the loose material from the areas to be patched. Then, you will need to clean the area by hosing it down, taking care to sweep excess water away before applying the patching material. This process is relatively simple and should not take too much skill or time.

Experts

If your driveway is severely damaged, you should call in the professionals. You probably need to have your driveway resurfaced or repaved. Resurfacing is less expensive and entails putting a new layer of pavement on top of the old driveway. If the surface is too far gone, a professional may recommend that you remove the old pavement and have all new pavement installed. Consult with your local paving professional to see which method will work best for you.

Fall is the time to get your driveway ready for the coming winter. You can certainly hope for a mild winter, but hope never kept the snow and ice away. Repairing, sealing, or redoing your driveway now can save you some serious issues during the cold months. If you have some DIY skills, you may be able to handle the repairs. For the really serious damage, call in a local paving company like Interstate Paving LLC.
