Your asphalt mixture is made up of different sized stones, sand, asphalt binder, etc.
Your pavement may also have a more rocky appearance on seams and areas that have been raked or compacted by hand tools.
If an area of concern develops we will check the area to determine if a drainage repair is possible.
The general rule of thumb is if the water in the low area will cover at least a quarter we will give the owner the option of reheat patching to try to eliminate the puddle.
Please note that when less than 1% slope exists perfect drainage is not always possible.
It is also best not to park on or near the edges, or drive off the edges which can also cause premature edge cracking.
There is no warranty against edge failure if these steps are not followed.
Sometimes a driveway will develop one or more cracks during your warranty period which are usually caused by something underground (ie:tree roots, wires, pipes, culverts, etc).
Other common causes for a crack during your warranty period could be expansion cracking or a cold seam. If you get a crack in your pavement, call us and we will come out to inspect the crack.
If the crack is a “hairline crack” nothing is needed or recommended for that crack. Its normal to see a few “hairline cracks” from expansion. If a crack develops in the pavement and becomes 1/4” wide by 1/4” deep minimum, we will perform the necessary maintenance on these areas during your warranty period.
No maintenance is usually recommended for cracks smaller than the 1/4” by 1/4”.
Bike kickstands should be avoided on your asphalt pavement on hot days or will sink in and cause damage which can be repaired but is not covered under your warranty.
Use something to absorb as much of the fluid as possible and then wash the area with soap and water, being careful not to spread the fluid over the driveway.
Gasoline can quickly deteriorate your new pavement and should be avoided from contact with your asphalt. Fluid leak repairs are not covered under your warranty.
