Have you noticed the cracks in your driveway growing larger lately? Are you navigating puddles of water or tripping hazards when you walk onto your driveway to get the mail? It’s a good idea to pay attention to these signs because they may mean t it’s time for driveway resurfacing.
We all like to hope that our driveways will last forever and that we’ll never experience the inconvenience of a driveway replacement. Still, the reality is that they are all subject to wear and tear over time and will eventually need some attention. If your driveway is over 10-15 years old, it may be time to take an honest look at its condition and determine if it needs some maintenance work.
You probably hear home improvement experts on TV talking about boosting “curb appeal” or how your house looks to approaching visitors or people passing by on the street. Some easy boosts to make an excellent first impression include tidy and attractive landscaping, vibrant siding that hasn’t been sun-bleached, and a lawn free of the debris of daily life, like kids’ toys and old lawn equipment. These aesthetic issues are common, and most are relatively easy to fix. However, fresh asphalt driveway paving is the best way to boost the look of your home and make it a standout addition to your street!
You may not think much about that paved or stone surface that connects your home to the actual curb and beyond, but if it’s in poor condition or made of subpar material, it’s quietly undermining all your other hard work and ruining your home’s appeal. Especially if you’re planning to sell your home anytime soon, having a professional asphalt contractor pave or resurface your driveway should be at the top of your improvement to-do list.
Your asphalt has seen better days, and you can’t help but think about when it was freshly paved and had a beautiful finish. Now its color has faded, and there are other signs of aging you want to address, like cracks or small holes.
For homeowners looking to save money on routine maintenance of paved surfaces around their homes or commercial business owners and managers tasked with keeping vast parking lots and access driveways in shape, going the do-it-yourself route with asphalt sealcoating seems like a great idea at first.

There are some common, big mistakes non-professionals make when attempting to renew the paved surfaces in their care, and we want to help you prevent that from happening.

A newly paved driveway’s smooth, black texture is great for curb appeal and always makes a fabulous first impression. But, just like everything else, asphalt pavement deteriorates over time due to vehicle traffic and extreme weather conditions such as intense sun, freezing temperatures, ice, and snow. Other environmental factors, such as road salt, engine oil, and gasoline, are also harmful to the pavement.
Eventually, your asphalt pavement will need to be repaired or replaced. That’s when homeowners typically begin looking for paving services like asphalt paving or sealcoating.
