Elevate Your Curb Appeal with Custom a Oil and Stone Driveway

If you like the more natural, textured look of gravel but still want the durability of an asphalt paved driveway, oil and stone chip is the best option. This specialty application can enhance your property’s curb appeal, adding a touch of rustic charm found in traditional, long-established New England coastal towns. The rough, semi-loose stone surface of an oil and stone driveway is more aesthetically pleasing than plain asphalt, complimenting Connecticut’s beautiful countryside while providing excellent traction during snowy New England winters and faster cooling capacity during the summer.

Oil and stone chip driveways and walkways are made from similar materials as asphalt ones. The primary difference lies in the installation process and the appearance of the finished surfaces. The application process involves spreading layers of stone and liquid asphalt over asphalt, which produces a beautiful but durable finished surface.

What is an oil and stone driveway, and how does it differ from traditional asphalt?

An oil and stone driveway, also known as a tar and chip driveway, is a cost-effective alternative to traditional asphalt paving. It consists of a base layer of compacted stone aggregate, coated with hot liquid asphalt and topped with loose stone chips. This method provides a rustic appearance while offering durability and traction, requiring less maintenance than traditional asphalt.

Can I customize the appearance of my oil and stone driveway?

Yes, you can customize it with various stone chip colors and size. Our team can help you select the perfect combination to complement your property’s style. Additionally, decorative edging materials can enhance the driveway’s visual appeal.

How long does an oil and stone driveway last?

With proper maintenance, an oil and stone driveway can last 7 to 10 years or more. Routine restoning and addressing any damage can extend its lifespan. Factors such as climate, usage, and installation quality also influence longevity.
