How thick should asphalt be laid in Sunnyvale?
In Sunnyvale asphalt driveways should be 2-3 inches at compaction. Parking lot pavement will depend on the volume and type of traffic you anticipate. Commercial paving will range from 3” to 8” depending on your parking lot needs.
How often should I seal coat my asphalt pavement in Sunnyvale?
On average, in Sunnyvale, we recommend you seal coat your driveway every three years. Parking lot sealcoating will range from every 2-4 years.
What happens if you seal coat asphalt too soon?
Asphalt requires several months to cure fully. If you apply sealcoating too soon, you will trap in the lightweight oils, causing your pavement to be soft and susceptible to imprints, tire marks and other damage.
How much does it cost to pave a driveway in Sunnyvale?
This is not an easy question to answer. The driveways in Sunnyvale range from a couple of hundred square feet to thousands of square feet. Most asphalt contractors in Sunnyvale have a base price and an additional per square foot charge.
Are you licensed and insured?
Yes, we are fully insured, including workers' compensation insurance. We are licensed by the state of California. Our license #995715
What is asphalt made of?
Asphalt is made from aggregates, such as crushed stone and sand. The binder called bitumen binds the aggregates together, and asphalt pavement is black in color. Bitumen is produced from crude oil.
Is asphalt environmentally friendly?
Yes, asphalt is one of the most recycled items in the world. Most of our asphalt mixes are from recycled asphalt with some added virgin asphalt.
What is the recommended slope for paved surfaces?
A 1.5% to 3% slope is the minimum slope for paved surfaces.
Can you pave over my existing asphalt?
Sometimes we will pave over existing asphalt surfaces. If the sub-base and the existing asphalt are stable, we can pave over it. An asphalt overlay is usually the most cost effect paving method. We will need to mill (scrape off) around transition areas such as sidewalks, roadways or driveway aprons.
How long does it take to install a new asphalt driveway?
A lot will depend on the size of the driveway and the shape of the existing driveway. Usually, we can do the prep work in 1-2 days and the paving in one day.
