Driveways are an important part of any home. They’re one of the first things people see, and they’re used every day when we leave in the morning or park at home after a long day. If you want a driveway that looks good and performs well, consider an asphalt driveway. Curtis Paving provides expert driveway paving in Vancouver that will give your home a stylish and sturdy surface to park and drive on.
With nearly 40 years of experience, Curtis Paving’s team of reliable paving contractors in Vancouver will be able to install your asphalt driveway on time and on budget. We also provide driveway repairs so your asphalt driveway will last for years to come.
Why Choose an Asphalt Driveway?
A new driveway can improve your home’s curb appeal, increase your property value, extend your outdoor living space and even help with the resale of your home. Whether you’re installing a new driveway for your new home or are interested in replacing your current damaged driveway, we recommend asphalt.
Asphalt is made by combining aggregates and a petroleum cement and is often heated for the installation process. This material is durable even in colder climates because it can flex with the freezing and thawing cycle which makes it less likely to form cracks. It is also a porous substance so water drains through it more easily than other substances such as concrete. Over time, as with all things, asphalt driveways can start to crumble and crack, but regular maintenance will help lengthen the life of your asphalt driveway.
Asphalt driveway paving in Vancouver is less expensive than installing concrete driveways, and they are relatively easy to maintain. Simply make sure you seal cracks, clean up oil spots and sealcoat the surface every 3 years to extend the life of your asphalt driveway. If you come across any issue that seems too large for a simple repair, be sure to contact a trustworthy paving contractor to fix the problem.
Long-Lasting Driveway Paving
Whether you are a home builder or a home owner, you want a long-lasting driveway that’s relatively low maintenance. Asphalt is the answer, when properly paved.
The right paving contractors in Vancouver will be able to provide you with a long-lasting surface that can withstand the elements. Curtis Paving creates durable driveways by ensuring the site is prepared properly. We excavate the area, removing anything that could get in the way, and we focus on providing enough slope for draining water.
Water should never be left to create puddles on your driveway as it can seep underneath the surface and weaken the sublayer. The underlying granular base that we install will always have the right thickness and composition to ensure the right slope and limit any water damage.
While it’s important to correctly compress and lay down the asphalt itself, it’s even more important to get the preparation steps correct. At Curtis Paving, we plan out every step of the driveway paving process so that you always have a driveway that will drain properly.
