Time To Resurface Driveway
Depending on the material used to resurface your driveway, you may not need to resurface it on a regular basis. Most asphalt driveways will easily last ten years in the hot Arizona sun, but driveways that have a decomposed granite surface will need to be resurfaced more often. When you resurface a driveway, you’re simply removing the damaged areas of asphalt, filling in the holes, and then adding a new layer of asphalt or concrete over the existing driveway. In some cases, we’re required to remove the top layer before adding a new layer.
If you have a concrete driveway and need it resurfaced, we can help with that as well. The cost of resurfacing a concrete driveway is considerably less than resurfacing an asphalt driveway of the same square footage. We first clean the concrete driveway, then fill in all the cracks and holes using a patching compound. After that, we prime the surface and then spray on a new layer of polymer concrete. We then finish up your driveway by troweling for a beautiful, even finish. And if you want to add decorative colors or a protective sealant, we can do that for you as well.
Resurface Driveway Material Options
When it comes to resurfacing a rock driveway, you have two basic options, you can either hire a contractor to grade your driveway for drainage and then add a layer of the same material you had, or you can choose to upgrade your driveway to a longer-lasting surface. Concrete driveways last longer than any other driveway and require the least amount of regular maintenance. Plus they stand up much better to erosion than do rock or gravel driveways. Another option is to use pavers on your driveway, as they add beauty as well as durability. Of course, pavers and concrete are more costly due to the labor required upfront, but the cost is offset by your decreased maintenance costs.
