Resurface Driveway

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.

    Asphalt Driveway

    The elements are tough on asphalt here in the Arizona desert. And, while Asphalt is more flexible than concrete, asphalt driveways require maintenance on a regular basis. Resurfacing your asphalt driveway can be costly but it’s necessary to keep it maintained.

    Driveway Paver Stones

    Concrete or stone pavers are an excellent choice for finishing your driveway, but there are a few things to consider. The great thing about pavers is you can add design options that aren’t available with other materials, but the big drawback for pavers is the cost.

    Deciding Whether To Replace or Repair Your Driveway

    A driveway is an area that is separate from the landscaping around your home and is there for the express purpose of allowing access to your property while working as a barrier against encroaching vegetation. But, a driveway is much more than that as it can either add to or detract from the perceived value of your home. When your driveway falls into disrepair not only can vegetation begin to gain a foothold, but the value of your home can suffer as well. In order to prevent your driveway’s disrepair from devaluing your property, you need to either replace it, patch it, or resurface the driveway. Below we take a look at each of these options to help you determine which is best for you.

    Patching A Driveway

    Many common concrete driveway problems include cracking, discoloration from petroleum spills, and surface flaking. These can be easily fixed by removing the old concrete with a hammer and chisel and patching it with new concrete. Asphalt driveways can have sinkholes and spider web cracks and these can be filled with new asphalt once the dirt and debris are removed.

    Resurfacing A Driveway

    You’ll know it’s time to resurface your driveway when you notice imperfections in a large portion of the driveway area. Resurfacing your driveway includes scraping off a layer of the entire driveway and pouring either new concrete or new asphalt. For most people, resurfacing their driveway is not a job they’ll want to tackle on their own, so you’ll want to hire a competent contractor.

    Replacing A Driveway

    Driveway damage is something that creeps up on you. Over time, damage to your driveway can come from many sources, including motor oil, salt, wear and tear from use, and weather factors. All of these can take a toll. Most homeowners only think about replacing their driveway when they’re getting ready to sell, but a brand new driveway will enhance the comfort of your home.
