Getting the Your Driveway ready

 

       The key to a good driveway is a good base. You need a minimum of 9 inches of compacted stone. If you are having your driveway dug out, we may let the stone settle for approximately a month. In some situations we are able to pave right away. If a stone base is already there, you must ensure that there is 9 inches of stone. Remember your Driveway is only as good as its base.

 

Paving your Driveway

 

       Van Jon starts by laying a minimum 1.5 inches of base (HL8), we then compact it with our 3 ton vibratory roller. Once that layer hardens, we apply the finish mat. The top mat is another 1.5 inches. There are many different products to choose from when applying the top coat. They have all different properties due to their unique mixes; check below for types of asphalt.
