Below, you will find summarized information about our driveway-related products and services.
Hot Mix Asphalt Concrete (HMAC)
HMAC is created by combining hot asphalt binder to an aggregate at very-controlled temperatures. When the heat of the asphalt has reached a specified level, the paving and compacting can begin..
Asphalt Patching and Repair
Driveway paving will require some type of eventual repair work. Spot-patching is a very common temporary remedy; and if patching your driveway is all you need, it is best to wait until the air and ground temperatures are above freezing.
When mere patching is not enough and a driveway indicates signs of structural distress due to excess water permeation, Prime Asphalt recommends saw-cut removal and replacement. Deterioration of the sub-grade material will compromise the integrity of a driveway's strength and support. Saw-cut removal and replacement is deemed the most viable remedy when irreversible water damage is diagnosed. .
Chip seal is a paving procedure that offers an especially eye-catching appearance for new driveways or those to be resurfaced. Chip Seal is not only a more-naturally-beautiful option, but costs less than black-top or concrete paving. Chip Seal, also, goes by the name 'Tar & Chip' and utilizes liquid asphalt, or hot bitumen, that is applied over existing pavement or a compacted and grated area. Rock is spread and then rolled, impacted and sealed.
Chip Seal is recognized for its unarguable advantages:
1) enhanced beauty
2) virtually no maintenance
3) maximized traction
4) less heat absorption over other materials
5) quicker installation than asphalt and
6) minimal downtime.
Chip Seal can be driven on, almost immediately. Also, with Chip Seal, you have the option to select a rock color that will give your driveway its own look and 'personality'!
Any cracks in asphalt paving can spell potential trouble and should be addressed as quickly as possible. At Prime Asphalt, we use hot rubber or cold-pour crack filler. These two products are highly-effective with infiltrating cracks, and serve as an important component with extending the life of your asphalt surface.
Fine woods are protected with polyurethane products; and, likewise, driveways should be protected with their own coating, as well. Enter seal coat – the perfect barrier that separates your driveway's surface from damage-causing elements such as oil, gasoline, sun oxidation and water.
Seal coat should be applied at least every 3 years as part of regular maintenance to extend the life of your asphalt driveway. This product works best when air and pavement temperatures are at least 49 degrees Fahrenheit during a period of 4 continuous hours.
Emulsified Sealer/Rejuvenator is designed to soak into the pavement and supply necessary components that have been lost due to oxidation and every-day wear and tear. Oil-based coatings will cure quickly and rebind the aggregate and provide maximized protection from water and UV rays. A rich, black coloration is achieved. Also, oil-based Gilsonite can be added in any temperature as long as the surface is dry.
If a black coloring of your driveway is not your first choice, Prime Asphalt offers more than a dozen earth-tone hues. We use 'SealMaster Neutral Base ColorPave' which is specifically intended to be mixed with ColorPave HD Tint. With specialty coatings, the end results are eye-catching!
Grading and Excavation
Our clients work with only one contractor which translates into grading and excavation projects remaining simple and seamless, from beginning to end. Do you need a base installed for a new driveway, or completion with grading on new construction? Perhaps you need someone to clean-up and level after asphalt paving, or simply require the application of fresh gravel for a temporary driveway. Whatever your need might be, Prime Asphalt is here for you!
Recycled or Green Materials
Prime Asphalt embraces an active role with environmental stewardship. We utilize recycled material to help reduce waste and tread more gently on the environment; and this is where recycled asphalt, or RAP comes in. RAP remains the single, most-used recycled product in the US and is, quite simply, previously-used asphalt that has been ground into aggregate size. When compacted, the material is able to harden and bind, making it an ideal candidate for use on all types of driveways.
RAP is affordable, requires fewer raw resources than virgin asphalt, percolates well which prevents pooling on driveway areas, and minimizes dust issues. Additionally, RAP offers its own aesthetics and is actually a hybrid between a quaint gravel surface and an asphalt surface. Homeowners, who are searching for the look of something unique, will love the distinctive appearance of driveways created with recycled asphalt!
Whether your driveway project is residential, rural, commercial, or industrial, give Prime Asphalt a call – the answers to your questions are only a phone all away. We look forward to hearing from you!
