An Outdoor Oasis

Some of my fondest memories were made in the backyard of my childhood home. I adored spending time outside with my two dogs. I also loved to play volleyball and basketball with my family members and friends. Do you have kids who always seem to have excessive energy to burn? If your kids get tired of staying indoors when at home, consider hiring a paving contractor to build a sports court in your backyard. After determining what type of sports your kids enjoy playing, your paving contactor can likely suggest what size and type of court you’ll need. On this blog, I hope you will discover how a paving contractor can help you get the backyard of your dreams. Enjoy!

Is Your Concrete Driveway Badly Damaged? Get A New Ecological And Affordable Smooth Surface

If your house has a severely damaged concrete driveway and it's so broken up it isn't even driveable, it's time to make a change. If you are worried about budget and what the cost will be, asphalt is a great new surface choice to consider.

Call the asphalt contractors to talk about the job and get an estimate. In the estimate you should expect to see a breakdown for: 

  • Removal of old concrete materials
  • Driveway prep
  • Asphalt pouring
  • Sealing

Get more than one estimate if you want to see price comparisons and if you want to try to negotiate the quotes down. Here are some things to remember.

Asphalt Is Easy to Maintain and Repair

Unlike other driveway services, asphalt is easy and affordable when it comes to maintenance and repair. Every few years, the surface should be sealed. This will help to maintain a smooth surface, restore color and hide blemishes or flaws.

If there are cracks or other imperfections, a fresh coating of asphalt can be put on. The asphalt will adhere to the existing asphalt to layer on top or fill in a hole, making repairs fast, easy, and cost-effective. These are just a couple of reasons why asphalt is a top choice.

Asphalt Is Ecological

Not only is asphalt non-toxic, but it's also 100 percent recyclable. This means that the driveway that you get could be created with all recycled asphalt from another project, and your asphalt will serve another purpose in the future.

Porous asphalt was designed to allow water to be absorbed into the ground as needed, and not shed on the sides of the driveway to help the environment. This is an ideal ecological material for your home.  

Asphalt Has Fast Installation

You can be driving on your asphalt driveway a day or so after it's poured if the temperatures and weathering conditions allow it. The team will come to the property and do the prep and pouring fast. This means you don't have to worry about days of pours and smoothing.

If your concrete driveway is so bad that it's damaging your car and unsafe to walk on, it's time to get that concrete off the property. Talk with the professionals and get costs to see how much a new asphalt driveway in the space will cost. If you want to make changes to the driveway, ask for a new layout with the quote.
