Concrete vs Paving Facts
Below are the facts on paving and concrete to help you decide on the right type of job for your site improvement. Of course you can always call us and we will be happy to come out, assess the area and assist you with any questions you may have. We recognize that this can be a big investment and we strive to help you make the right decisions so that the job can be done quickly and professionally. Asphalt paving, pad or parking area can be one of the most impressionable site improvements on the property, commercial or residential.
For asphalt patches, we cut out the soft spots and prepare the patch with a base and optional stone paving clothing. If patching is not the best option, you can opt to overlay the entire lot with a top coating of 1.5-2" of asphalt.
