Driveway Paving & Replacement

Driveway Paving & Replacement in MN

Each aspect of your home should be a point of pride, and that includes your driveway. It’s one of the first things people see when they approach your home, and you use it almost daily, but all of that wear and tear eventually takes a toll on the pavement. If you need a driveway paving solution, look no further than the Asphalt Driving Company! But first, let’s explain when and why driveway repairs or a full replacement become necessary.

Signs You Need Driveway Paving

  • Cracks – Cracks are often the most obvious sign that your driveway needs ren`ovation. Cracks may form due to use over time or as a result of extreme seasonal conditions such as blistering summers or frigid winters (Sound familiar?). De-icing salt, gas, and other chemicals can also contribute to pavement blemishes. Cracks smaller than a quarter inch are known as cosmetic cracks and can usually be repaired by patching the area. Deeper cracks require more substantive interventions.
  • Drainage Issue—Poor drainage can lead to many problems for your driveway, including pooling water, mold growth, and damage to the structural integrity of the house. Drainage problems can result from melting snow or heavy storms.
  • Potholes – Potholes are another clear indicator that your driveway needs repairs. Potholes form as the ground beneath the paving contracts and expand over time. They’re usually created by the freeze-and-thaw cycle of a typical Minnesota winter or heavy traffic. While minor potholes may affect the look of your driveway more than your car, they can become more serious safety hazards as they grow.
  • Shifting or Sinking Driveways—If you notice that your driveway wobbles or sinks into the ground, it’s probably time for a new driveway. The movement is likely a sign of serious structural damage or that the underlying soil is not properly compacted. Drainage problems, as well as extreme temperatures, are common causes of this issue.
  • Age – Your driveway may not have any glaring issues at present, but it could still be time for a replacement. Most driveways are built to last about 15 to 20 years. Past that point, the pavement will look increasingly weathered, and any basic repairs to patch cracks will lose some of their impact. If your driveway is older than 20 years old, it is best to bring a contractor in to check for potential issues.

The Differences Between an Asphalt and Concrete Driveway

Driveways can be made with asphalt or concrete. Each material comes with its own qualities. Here is a quick rundown of the advantages of using concrete or asphalt:

Concrete

  • Longer lifespan – When properly installed, concrete structures can last for up to 50 years before a replacement is necessary
  • Customization options – Concrete can be personalized with engravings, signatures, or different colors
  • Less maintenance required – Once the concrete dries, it should not need much maintenance going forward

Asphalt

  • Affordability – An asphalt driveway costs about half as much as a concrete one
  • More resistance to tough winters – Asphalt naturally expands and contracts as the temperature changes, an especially useful trait in places that experience extreme temperatures, such as Minneapolis
  • Melts ice and snow faster – Asphalt driveways draw and retain more heat from the sun, which helps to prevent snow or ice buildup during the winter months.
  • Eco-friendly – Asphalt is a more sustainable material and can be recycled for later use

Garage Floor Repair or Replacement

Your driveway isn’t the only surface that gets worn down by tires and foot traffic. Garage floors also have to be repaired or replaced after prolonged use. Exposure to household chemicals also has a negative effect on the look and integrity of the floor.

Exceptional customer service from the start to finish. Asphalt Driveway Co. recommended a cost-effective partial driveway replacement, saving us money. They also advised waiting three years to seal coat, ensuring a seamless blend of the two sections. The seal coat was completed today, and it looks fantastic. I highly recommend this company for their great communication and customer service.
