Our Work Scheme
We start our work with the visit, free of cost, to the affected place. This is an essential step, as we decide after surveying the treatment and use of a substance in this step. The treatment depends upon the type of driveways and their level of deterioration. There are different types of driveways based on their composition.
Types of Driveways
- Driveways made of asphalt
- Driveways made of concrete
- Driveways made of gravel
We make layouts and devise strategies in the survey by sharing opinions with the clients. We counsel our customers with bits of advice that are favorable for them in all aspects. The calculation of materials and budget is done to make the client aware of expenses.
Repairing and installation of the asphalt driveway
The asphalt driveways are also called blacktop, and it is very durable as they last for 20 years. The running of heavy vehicles, deposition of dirt that damages them by forming small cracks, if these cracks are not treated for a long time, they convert into wide holes. For asphalt driveway repairing, large machines are used, which heat the asphalt mixture and melt it. The rollers are used to place them smoothly.
The asphalt sealant is used to fill one or more cracks to prevent further damage with the help of a caulking gun. When there are many cracks, the asphalt repair tube is used. The tube is inserted in the cracks, and then heat is given to melt the tar and fill the gaps. If the cracks are not treated, then the water that goes inside affects the layer of gravel beneath the asphalt. Due to this asphalt crumble and form a pothole on the surface.
Repairing of concrete driveway
This is one of the most common types of driveway and its quality depends upon the type of concrete and technique used in making it. For example, how well the concrete is poured and the ratio of water used in mixing the concrete as excess water damages the concrete. Our repairing depends upon the type of cracks and holes.
If the driveway is flaking off in the form of patches, then resurfacing is done. The resurfacer is spread over the patches to fill the damage points. For one or two cracks of less than half an inch, the concrete crack filler is used that is spread with the caulking gun. In this way, cracks are filled, and the formation of large holes is avoided.
The complex treatment is required for large and deep cracks, which are more than one and a half inches. We first fill the cracks with foam caulking rod, then concrete repair sealant is used on it. The foam rod supports the sealant from flowing away into the cracks. Large deep cracks are repaired before they become large over the entire driveway.
Repairing of gravel driveway
These driveways last for many years if they are maintained otherwise repair requires much effort. The gravel driveways are used for long length driveways and proper fitting of the drainage system. Below are certain factors that give rise to the need for the gravel driveway repair:
The growth of different weeds on these driveways is common and is controlled by herbicides. If weeds are left untreated, they damage the look of it. The driveways are made with such a technique that water runs off from both sides to prevent its accumulation. Due to the movement of heavy vehicles, small spots are formed in some places which hold the water and then eventually form large ruts. So, the repair is done by the excavator which re-grades the road with the help of a blade. The blade pulls the gravel, placed them in its original position, and renovates the driveway.
