When looking at repaving your asphalt driveway, there are a few essential steps to take to get the job done right. When professionals assist you, they can take on these steps far more effectively and ensure you get a more streamlined and long-living result. First, the space needs to be correctly cleaned and cleared of all dirt, debris or any other elements that may be present. Algae and weeds that may be growing in the area must also be removed. There is also the need to fill in holes and cracks that may have formed to ensure a stable base. When you have experts to help you, you can ensure that all elements are done right, and you can enjoy a stunning driving space on your property. Whether corporate or private, read on to see why it’s better to trust the experts. 

Clean the Driveway

Professionals understand how to do things properly to ensure that nothing is left behind to diminish the quality of the work. These elements can cause degraded surfaces or a space beneath the surface that will erode over time if not removed correctly. Dirt, debris, algae, and weeds must be correctly removed and cleared before any new surface work. The cracks and spaces will need to be swept out and cleared to ensure no loose debris remains once the new material is added. A leaf blower or utility broom can be used at times to clear the driveway’s surface further. Once removed, the surface needs to be scrubbed and cleaned further to ensure nothing is sitting on top of the surface that could cause issues down the line. As cars use this space, there could be several oils or coolants or any other vehicle-related liquids around. 


Once the section is clean, it’s time to repair the space by filling all cracks and potholes. Narrow gaps can be filled using a crack filler and smoothed out using a putty knife by hand. Potholes can be filled with a pothole patch material that is best sourced by a knowledgeable professional who understands the needs of your surface and space needs. Once the cracks have been filled, and the holes are covered, it is time to look towards the new material. The base layer needs to be smooth and solid to receive the new material properly.


Once all of these steps have been taken, the resurfacing process can move forward. This involved adding the new material over the surface and correctly spreading it around the area. When you have all steps taken properly, you will have a smooth, clean and good looking space to enjoy.
