Asphalt Engineering paves all driveways with road paving equipment leaving our customers with a much longer lasting product that can withstand more weight than the typical driveway.

Our Equipment Fleet Includes:

  • 5 ton double drum vibratory roller – this roller allows for maximum compaction
  • NEW Leeboy 8515 – road grade paver that can pave 9′-15′ passes seamlessly
  • NEW Caterpillar 420E Backhoe – allows for deep dig excavation, stump and boulder removal with no damage to roadway pavement
  • NEW Bobcat T870 – optimal power and traction for grading and excavation
  • In addition several well maintained fleet of dump trucks and support vehicles.

A Typical Driveway Install Involves:

  • Initial on-site engineering review and estimate
  • Rip up and remove existing asphalt and sub-base (up to 12″ as needed, removing any large rocks, stumps, roots or unsuitable material)
  • Add proper sub-base material ( 3/4″ dense grade or 3/4″ reprocessed material)
  • Grade for proper water runoff and compact with 5 ton vibratory roller (ensures proper compaction)
  • Pave 2″ bindercoat / compact w/5 ton roller ( 1.5″ after compaction)
  • Pave 2″ topcoat / compact w/5 ton roller ( 1.5″ after compaction)
  • Seal seam at road and put up caution tape. Vehicles must stay off for 5 days until driveway has cooled off and hardened

 

“My driveway, walkway and sidewalks needed to be dug up and replaced. It went exceptionally. Great team – very professional. Worked quickly, neatly and explained everything I need to know. Even had neighbors stop over to say what a wonderful job they did.” - Angie's List Reviewer
