Materials and Processes for Driveways
Prime Asphalt will meet any, and every, driveway-paving need by utilizing:
Your Driveway Project - Bit of Insight
Our driveway-related products and services are, briefly, outlined below. Perhaps your business or residence requires a completely new driveway or merely repairs or maintenance. Regardless of your need, our crew members have the expertise to get the job done in a highly-organized and efficient manner; and they will meet your exact specifications.
Hot Mix Asphalt Concrete (HMAC)
HMAC is produced by mixing a heated asphalt binder to an aggregate at high, very-controlled temperatures. The paving and compacting is performed when the heat of the asphalt has reached an ideal threshold.
Asphalt Patching and Repair
Driveway repairs are an eventual reality. If patching is required, that procedure will take place when the air and ground temperatures are above the freezing mark; and spot-patching is a commonly-used, temporary fix. If, however, your driveway shows signs of water infiltration that has compromised the sub-grade material, Prime Asphalt provides saw-cut removal and replacement.
This is considered the most effective remedy when problematic water damage has been determined.
For a maximally-aesthetic option with new or refurbished driveways, Chip Seal is a wonderful choice! Chip Seal is not as utilitarian in appearance as black-top or concrete and is more cost-effective. Chip Seal is synonymous with 'Tar & Chip' and involves liquid asphalt (or hot bitumen) being distributed over existing pavement or a compacted and grated area. Rock is evenly spread and then rolled, impacted and sealed.
Chip Seal has distinct advantages:
1. Enhanced beauty
2. Virtually maintenance-free
3. Improved traction
4. Less heat absorption over other materials
5. Quicker installation than asphalt, and
6. Minimal downtime – one can drive on Chip Seal, almost immediately.
Did you know you can choose a particular rock color with Chip Seal? After installation is complete, you driveway will take on a personality, all its own!
Any cracks in asphalt should be filled as soon as possible as part of proactive driveway maintenance. Hot rubber or cold-pour crack filler infiltrates cracks and fissures and offers an extremely tough and durable solution to this common problem.
Crack fill ensures your driveway will not succumb to weakened areas, due to cracking, which will eventually compromise your driveway's structural integrity.
Just like fine wood should receive protection with a coat of polyurethane, your driveway needs to be sealed properly, as well. Without seal coat, asphalt driveways will deteriorate very quickly which is why sealing should be applied at least every 3 years. An application of seal coat works best when air and pavement temperatures are at least 49 degrees Fahrenheit during a period of 4 continuous hours. Your driveway will take on a fresh, new look!
Emulsified Sealer/Rejuvenator will breathe new life into asphalt. It penetrates the pavement and supply's necessary oils that have, over time, been lost due to oxidation and daily use. Oil-based coatings will cure quickly and rebind the aggregate. In the end, your driveway is optimally shielded from water and UV rays. A rich, black coloration indicative of oil-based coating can be quite striking. Oil-based Gilsonite can be added in any temperature as long as the surface is dry.
If you prefer a coloration other than basic black, you will be pleased to know we have more than a dozen earth-tone hues to choose from, for your driveway. Prime Asphalt uses 'SealMaster Neutral Base ColorPave' which is specifically intended to be mixed with ColorPave HD Tint; and the end-results are quite striking.
Grading and Excavation
Because our clients work with only one contractor with our company, they know the entire process with any grading and excavation project will be seamless and efficient. Do you need a base installed for a new driveway, completion with grading on new construction, or someone to clean-up and level after asphalt paving? Perhaps, your project merely involves the application of fresh gravel for a temporary driveway or a longer roadway – whatever the need, Prime Asphalt will get 'er done!
Recycled or Green Materials
Prime Asphalt makes every effort to minimize its 'footprint' on the environment; and part of that effort involves the use of recycled asphalt, or RAP. RAP remains the single, most-used recycled product in the US and is made from previously-used pavement that has been crushed yet still possesses some of the original bituminous asphalt. RAP is tough and maintenance-free and is very often used on ranch roads and rural driveways. RAP, also, provides an effective remedy for harmful dust issues that plague some roadways leading to residential or commercial locations.
