Do's & Don'ts for a new driveway 


Below are a few simple don’ts about your driveway, emphasizing how to prevent unsightliness or deterioration in the first year particularly


1.Do not place sharp or pointed objects (including high heeled shoes) on your asphalt driveway. They will cause holes and indentations.

2.Do not turn the wheels of your car sharply while the car is standing still. It will scuff the surface. Start the car moving and gradually turn the wheels while the car is in motion. These power steering scuffs DO NOT indicate a material defect, and in many cases nearly “heal themselves” in time.

3.Do not park the car in the same spot all the time. Change its position each time you park to prevent displacement.

4.Do not allow heavy vehicles in your driveway.

5.Do not allow weeds to crowd the edges. In the summer at the peak of their growth, they have been known to lift the edges or grow through the blacktop.

6.Do not allow snow plows in the driveway without warning to keep their blade high enough from the surface to prevent gouging and scratching.

7.Do not allow gas or oil to spill on driveway since it will dissolve the asphalt from the stone and create an unsightly hole.

8.Do not park on the edges of the driveway unless it is confined inside a concrete or stone curb from which it can be supports. Follow your contractor’s recommendations on what to do with pavement edges.

9.We do not guarantee 100% drainage on any driveway especially driveways with little or no pitch.

10.Do not be alarmed by the roller creases left by the compaction equipment

11.And remember to ask questions. We are more than happy to answer and discuss your concerns.

12.We recommend weather sealing your driveway 1 year after the initial install. Then every 2 years after that. Call the office for pricing.
