Quality Asphalt Services in Southern CT
Asphalt has been around since the late 19th century and remains a popular choice for driveways and parking lots, due in part to its durability, functionality and cost-effective installation. Asphalt paved driveways increase the value of your home, eliminate the mud, ruts, and dust caused by gravel and process driveways, keep dirt and debris outside — protecting your carpets and other flooring surfaces — and provide excellent play surfaces for kids … and, yes, even dad!
Unlike concrete, an asphalt paved driveway is both strong and flexible, making it the ideal choice for colder temperature zones — such as the one in which we live — where perpetual freezing and thawing patterns occur. Asphalt surfaces allow for easy snow removal and are resistant to cracking from frost heaves. Asphalt can also be re-layered, making repairs simpler and more manageable.
Asphalt driveway installation involves excavating and grading the desired site for proper drainage and to provide a suitable base course. A hot bituminous asphalt mixture is applied on top, compacted in place and cooled to finish.
An asphalt driveway will provide many years of use with little maintenance. Call Sullivan Paving Co Inc today at 860-767-2357 for a FREE estimate on service.
Recycle Your Driveway
When Sullivan Paving Co Inc removes your old asphalt driveway, the material is not dumped in a landfill, instead we recycle it! Sullivan Paving crushes the material removed from your driveway so it can be used as base material beneath your new driveway. Recycled Aggregate Product, or RAP, is not only an earth-friendly product but a superior base product as well.
