Litchfield County Asphalt Paving

The Top Choice for Asphalt Paving Services in New Haven County, Fairfield County & Beyond

Asphalt or blacktop paving is one of the most popular services sought by homeowners and the managers of commercial properties alike. This is because asphalt is such a reliable, flexible material, perfect for multiple kinds of projects, whether you are designing a personal running trail or repairing your home’s driveway. It is both tough and pliable for bearing heavy loads since it is made of a strong combination of composite elements, including aggregate, oil, and reprocessed asphalt.

These materials also allow asphalt to be very affordable, so that even if you need many layers of asphalt for locations where trucks and cars frequently drive and park – such as parking lots and private roads – you can save yourself a lot of expense.

Installing Asphalt Paving

Whether you are considering creating a tennis court for your family home or seeking to extend a parking lot for your commercial property, asphalt is an excellent choice.

Just some examples of different projects our team can handle with asphalt paving include:

  • Driveways
  • Parking lots
  • Commercial and industrial properties
  • Private roads and paths
  • Athletic courts and surfaces

Advantages of Litchfield County Asphalt Paving

One of the benefits of getting our Litchfield County asphalt paving done for your property is that it can be extremely affordable but is also highly durable. Depending on how large an area the surface of your project is, asphalt can often be less expensive than using concrete. It also provides a smooth, hard surface that is simultaneously less rigid than concrete, which means it is less prone to cracking in the freeze/thaw cycles here in Connecticut. Moreover, asphalt is easy to repair if it suffers small dents and cracks over time, with cost-effective milling or other repair work.

Even if you do not provide regular maintenance, a blacktop asphalt surface will keep its aesthetic appeal for ranges between 15 to 20 years. In addition, we also provide recycled asphalt services!

Benefits of Asphalt Paving:

  • Durability -
    Asphalt is a very reliable and weather-tight material. The material that asphalt is made out of can be used for either low or high-traffic conditions and withstand the heaviest of semi-trucks or trailers.
  • Economically Advantageous -
    Asphalt is a very low-cost material in addition to low cost it also takes a lot less time to pave with. Asphalt dries very quickly and roads, highways, or driveways don't need to be blocked for very long.
  • Recycling -
    Asphalt is a recyclable material and can used over and over again. The life of asphalt never really ends as it can just be recycled and used again to pave.

How to Maintain Your Asphalt Driveway

Maintaining your asphalt driveway is crucial for ensuring its longevity and appearance.

Here are some tips on how to effectively maintain your asphalt driveway:

  • Regular Cleaning: Sweep your driveway regularly to remove dirt, leaves, and debris. Use a leaf blower or a broom to keep the surface clean. This helps prevent the buildup of materials that can contribute to deterioration.

  • Address Stains Promptly: Clean oil, gasoline, or other stains as soon as possible. Use a mild detergent and a stiff brush to scrub the stained area. Avoid using harsh chemicals that may damage the asphalt.

  • Fill Cracks: Inspect your driveway for cracks regularly. Fill small cracks with asphalt crack filler to prevent water from seeping in and causing further damage. For larger cracks, consider professional repair services.

  • Sealcoating: Apply a sealcoat to your asphalt driveway every 2-3 years. Sealcoating helps protect the surface from UV rays, water, and chemicals. It also enhances the appearance of the driveway. Hire a professional or use a quality sealant available at home improvement stores.

  • Repair Potholes: Potholes can form over time due to heavy traffic and weather conditions. Promptly repair any potholes to prevent them from expanding. Fill them with a suitable asphalt patching material and compact it properly.

  • Avoid Heavy Objects: Avoid parking heavy vehicles or placing heavy objects in the same spot for extended periods. This can lead to depressions in the asphalt surface. Use plywood or other materials under car jacks and heavy equipment to distribute the load.

  • Proper Drainage: Ensure that your driveway has proper drainage to prevent water from pooling. Standing water can weaken the asphalt and lead to cracks and other issues. If needed, consider adding drainage channels or addressing grading problems.

  • Snow and Ice Removal: Use a plastic snow shovel or a snow blower to remove snow from your asphalt driveway. Avoid using metal shovels, as they can damage the surface. Apply a de-icing agent sparingly to prevent ice buildup.

  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Avoid using harsh chemicals, such as de-icing salts with calcium chloride, as they can accelerate asphalt deterioration. Use sand or alternatives that are less harmful to the pavement.

  • Professional Inspection: Schedule periodic inspections by a professional asphalt contractor. They can identify issues early on and provide recommendations for maintenance or repairs.

By following these maintenance tips, you can help extend the life of your asphalt driveway and keep it in good condition. Regular care and attention will contribute to a smooth and attractive surface.
