Driveway Resurfacing

Driveways and parking areas endure extreme temperatures, snow and ice, road salt, engine oil and gasoline, intense sunshine, and much more. Is it any wonder that after years of constant use, driveways and parking areas begin to show their age in the form of cracks and potholes that mar the smooth surface?

If your driveway or parking area needs serious help, resurfacing can restore it and provide a stable, water-resistant surface that lasts for years.

What You Can Expect From Our 3-Step
Asphalt Paving Process

Driveway paving can be a mysterious process if you've never seen it before. If you are a person who likes to know what's happening in your home improvement projects, we have outlined our basic process to help you understand what we do and why we do it. This three-step process ensures your asphalt pavement driveway looks and performs its best.

1. The Right Asphalt Specifications

The first step of every paving project is determining the right specifications for the job. Our paving contractors carefully balance durability and economy and adjust our specs for the intended use of the pavement.

2. Proper Grading

The key to quality pavement starts with quality grading. Asphalt paving is only as good as its underlying stone base, so building up the proper stone thickness is essential. The stone base is then graded to ensure adequate drainage.

3. Proper Asphalt Application

For maximum effectiveness, fresh asphalt paving needs to be placed, tamped, and compacted while it is still warm. The method of placement and the speed of application are both important. We train our workers to use the correct techniques required for a high-quality job.


If you write out a pros and cons list, you're likely to find that there are more pros than cons when caring for your driveway in a way that will benefit your life in the long term. When your driveway requires repairs or replacement, you need professionals to assess the situation and determine your best course of action.

One of the main reasons homeowners choose to work with us is that we use our own fleet of heavy-duty grading and asphalt paving equipment for projects throughout Lancaster, Reading, West Chester, Downingtown, Coatesville, and the surrounding areas.

At Lyons & Hohl Paving, we believe that your paving project is an investment in your home that should serve you for years. We welcome the opportunity to talk with you about your paving needs.

Other Tips for Your New Driveway

It may be tempting to use your newly paved driveway right away, but you should take special care in the days following the asphalt paving process for the longevity of the work. To get the most from your newly finished driveway paving, follow these steps after your paving project is complete to ensure a quality driveway surface for your home for years to come.

  • Do not drive on new asphalt paving for three days.
  • Do not place soil directly against the edges of your new asphalt driveway. Placing soil against the sides may cause cracks to develop along the outside edges and lead to significant problems down the road.
  • It would be best if you did not drive off the new edges of your driveway. Just like placing soil against the sides, driving off the edges of your new asphalt driveway may cause cracks and future problems.
  • If there are any gas or fuel leaks, repair them before parking any vehicles on the driveway surface.
  • Be sure that your vehicle is moving whenever you turn the steering wheel. As the sun beats down on driveway asphalt throughout the summer months, it can soften driveway paving. This softening makes asphalt driveways vulnerable to imperfections caused by your vehicle's tires as it makes turns. If your driveway does get blemishes from sharp power steering, they are only superficial and will go away with time.
