Oil and Stone Driveways in Southern CT
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.
The oil and stone finish is sure to add to the aesthetic appeal of your home. Call Sullivan Paving Co Inc today at 860-767-2357 for a FREE estimate on our services.
