Professional Asphalt Resurfacing
Asphalt is commonly used in residential and commercial properties alike because of it’s safe, smooth, durable and affordable nature. It’s also easy to install; once laid, asphalt cools down and hardens quickly, making the surface ready for use within 24 hours. This mixture of stones, sand and liquid asphalt cement is designed to shrink and expand easily, reducing the damaging impact of extreme pressure or thermal expansion and contraction.
With this, it’s essential to remember that asphalt driveways also wear away with constant use, just like other paving materials. Moreover, issues like cracks, depressions, and draining problems can develop over time, requiring professional asphalt resurfacing.
Removing and replacing the top layer of your existing asphalt pavement is an effective way to maintain and extend the life of your surfaces. Asphalt driveway resurfacing prevents water, sunlight and air from penetrating your pavement and causing it significant damage. In addition, the new surface repels oil spills and leaks, making it much easier for you to clean your driveway.
Whether you’re a homeowner or a business owner, you can entrust your asphalt resurfacing project to the experts at The Driveway Company. Our crew has the experience, technical knowledge, refined craftsmanship and professional tools to get the job done right. We also follow proven methods to complete the process efficiently so you can get back to enjoying your driveway or resume your operations as soon as possible.
How To Tell if You Need Asphalt Resurfacing
Asphalt driveway resurfacing is a straightforward way to address issues with your pavement, prolong its lifespan, and keep your property looking neat. However, it can be challenging to determine when simple repairs are sufficient or when it’s time to renew your pavement.
Many property owners make the mistake of brushing off seemingly minor concerns until they’re dealing with extensive damage and expensive repair solutions. To help you know when it’s time to invest in asphalt resurfacing, here are some signs to watch out for:
- Alligator cracks - These are surface defects resembling the scales of an alligator that usually indicate structural failure due to excessive traffic loads and poor drainage.
- Drainage problems - Puddles in your asphalt driveway or parking lot are not mere inconveniences. They’re significant threats to your pavement as lingering moisture can seep beneath the surface and cause further damage, especially during freeze-thaw cycles.
- Potholes - If your pavement is riddled with potholes, it’s best to seek professional asphalt resurfacing immediately. Potholes often signal weakened spots on your driveway due to water freezing and thawing underneath it.
- Faded color - The color change on your pavement surface is more than just a cosmetic issue. It’s a sign of UV damage, which means that the pavement is now weaker and more prone to cracking.
Having your asphalt paving removed and replaced may seem overwhelming, but working with highly rated contractors helps keep the process as smooth and hassle-free as possible. On top of that, you can enjoy various benefits from asphalt driveway resurfacing, such as:
- Improved aesthetic appeal for your home or business
- Longer lifeline of your asphalt surfaces
- Enhanced safety and convenience for anyone using your residential or commercial property
- Significant savings from preventing more severe damages to your pavement
The Process: Asphalt Resurfacing
In the case where your driveway can no longer be mended through the usual repair techniques or when it’s way past its lifespan, you can always call our friendly and professional experts at The Driveway Company.
We follow an efficient and straightforward process for renewing asphalt surfaces:
- Asphalt Milling - The asphalt driveway resurfacing process starts with grinding away the top layer of the old asphalt, cutting the uneven areas, and removing oil-damaged spots.
- Pavement Repair - Before the actual resurfacing, remaining cracks, potholes and other issues are addressed through spot repairs and additional milling. Tree roots affecting the pavement may also be cut to ensure the area is ready for the new asphalt layer.
- Asphalt Resurfacing - Once the surface is prepped and all issues are addressed, around an inch of hot asphalt is overlaid on top using professional equipment. The process is completed within 3-5 hours.

“Thank you for a job well done! The crew that was here did a great job! Please be sure to tell them!”
“We heard very positive things about The Driveway Company and decided to opt for a driveway renovation. We are very pleased with the technical aspects of the renovation. The 2 guys that came were very skilled at their craft. They sawed some expansion (crack) joints in order to alleviate some of the problems with expansion and contraction at the frost line in order to facilitate the prevention of any moisture that would undermine the structure of the driveway. Then they sealed each crack and fissure, even the tiniest hairline cracks.
We were delightfully surprised at the extraordinary job that was skillfully accomplished by the Driveway techs. We could not be happier nor could we have found a better company to do our drive. Thank you The Driveway Company. We would highly recommend their professional workmanship.”

“The Driveway Co did an outstanding job on our new garage floor. The workers, Steve and Mike, were very professional and friendly. They took the time to explain the procedure and answered our questions. They also cleaned up the work area. Thanks!”
Craig & Carol Anderson
“I’m so glad I saw the TV commercial for The Driveway Co. I had deep scoring cracks in my back patio and front walk and I thought if they went through another winter of freezing and thawing and freezing, they would require more work. And it looked like more work than I could or wanted to do to look right. They did a Great job. I’m very pleased with the work they did and would refer them to anyone who needs this type of work done. Well done and neat. I’m proud to show my patio and front walk.”
“I had your company do some work on my steps and around my foundation. Your company truck pulled up and four gentlemen got out. They had a job to do. Each knew what to do and they went to work.
If I had any questions or concerns, Steve was there to answer them. It was a great crew. I cannot express enough how happy I am with the job that was done. My home is in one piece again. I wish I could have had the driveway done, but I understand about the black tar. Any visitors I have are surprised how good it looks. Again I thank you.”
P.S. Give the crew a raise. They were great!

“I am writing this letter to commend Skylar Spahn and Dan Peters for the excellent job they did on our driveway last Saturday, August 1, 2015.
They arrived promptly and were very personable and helpful! All my questions were answered completely and thoroughly. They went above and beyond what I expected. They were interrupted by rain and had to stop. They returned and finished the job as soon as the conditions permitted that day which I was very thankful for. I will recommend them and your company to my neighbors. Thank you.”
Tim and Donna Roth
“The Driveway Company removed failed caulking and recaulked the drive and patio. Their estimator and workers were friendly and courteous. They did not treat me like an idiot because I am a female and do not know a lot about concrete. The job looks very neat and I have every confidence that the driveway is structurally stable and well done. I’m very pleased with the whole experience.”
Mary A. Blossom
“I would rate this company A+. From the start they were responsive and answered any and all questions I had. I really appreciated the fact no one tried to “up sell” me or treat me like I didn’t know what I was talking about. When they came to caulk the cracks in my driveway, they were so wonderful. Had I not seen them here with my own eyes, I would never have known they had done work here; they were so quick, efficient and cleaned up everything! I have already told a friend that I think they are the company to go with. I am very glad I called them and am so thrilled with the results so far! Thank You!”
