With enough time, even the most skillfully laid asphalt driveway will begin to show signs of wear. When the damage is more widespread than a few tiny cracks, but you’re hoping to avoid a full replacement, your best option is often driveway resurfacing. Here’s what you need to know about this service.
What Is Driveway Resurfacing?
Driveway resurfacing is a method that rejuvenates a surface after any damage becomes pervasive. Technicians will pour new asphalt over the area, giving the surface a second life and making it look brand new. However, there are several preparatory steps. First, the driveway will be rigorously cleaned; the contractor will blast any grime, scat, or algae away with a hose. Once all the contaminants are gone, the technician will fill in the cracks and potholes to avoid any structural voids that could lead to problems later on. Finally, they’ll pour a layer of fresh asphalt over the driveway and even out the new coat.
Why Resurface Your Driveway?
When you have numerous potholes and extensive alligator cracking, repairs are often ineffective. Water will still seep into the old asphalt and then freeze and expand in the winter, causing new cracks. At the same time, a full-scale replacement—where all the material is removed, and a new foundation is laid—can be time-consuming and expensive. However, with driveway resurfacing services, you will have a gorgeous, pristine driveway again and add years to its life span—for an affordable price. This service also takes substantially less time than a replacement, reducing the inconvenience.
