Correcting the FoundationThe weather in the New England area doesn’t allow much time to ignore pavement damage once it starts. Delaying repairs only leads to bigger problems, which in turn, will cost you more. If you have extensive damage in your asphalt driveway paving and see it holding water, you can bet that the water has done damage far beyond the surface. These are the telltale signs that it is time to replace the asphalt driveway. Too much moisture causes weak compaction in the soil, which means a less sturdy foundation. Hiring a professional contractor for the job means you can trust them to install adequate drainage for better support and provide the right groundwork.
Laying New Asphalt PavementWith the new drainage and old soggy dirt and clay removed from the area, you can now proceed with the asphalt pavement construction process and lay the new asphalt. At Cassidy Paving, we have the proper equipment already in our fleet to deliver the new mix and pour it to replace your old driveway. This reduces time and costs to you since you only have to work with one experienced contractor. Since we have such cold temperatures and Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire in the winter, the thicker the asphalt the better. When deciding on the appropriate thickness, three to four inches is usually enough for great support. Sometimes it can even be up to six inches to keep water out as much as possible with proper soil compaction. We take it one layer at a time to achieve a smooth surface and we make sure your driveway’s apron is both carefully laid and connects your driveway to the road for additional support. Once we finish, give your new driveway about 24 hours or a little more before fully using it for driving and parking to ensure proper curing. With the right installation and maintenance, your new driveway reconstruction can last you anywhere between 15-25 years, as long as you implement small repairs when necessary.
