Paving- Overlay also known as Resurfacing:
We start by removing any loose particles and debris from your existing asphalt driveway ,by way of motorized blowers and manual brooming, treating any vegetation growth with a highly concentrated herbicide. Our next step is to sawcut and remove any tie-ins or high spots you may have (this sawcutting and asphalt removal will happen any place where asphalt meets concrete or paver bricks). At this point we will prefill any low lying areas to bring them to proper elevation. The next step is to ensure proper adhesion and eliminate mirror effect (when cracks reappear at a later date) by applying a SSIH tack oil bonding adhesive. After that we will install 1.5″ of SIII Hot Asphalt and compact it with a heavy duty motorized roller.
Millings driveways are very popular with eco-friendly and equestrian clients such as those in the Wellington area. We use a double crushed (popcorn) millings in our installations, which is an ultra fine form of millings. First we start by marking out where you would like your driveway, than we excavate what we need to reach proper elevations . Once we have the subgrade set we install the millings to the driveway approximately 4” thick. The popcorn millings are then fine graded and than we wet and compact using a 3-4 ton roller. This is an economic, ecofriendly, alternative to paving. The crushed millings is softer on horses hooves and allows more comfort and care for your precious animals. Some customers request sealer be applied to their asphalt millings. This technique helps harden the millings and is preferential.
When you want a concrete driveway, the first step is to dig out the existing terrain. We will then form and pour your driveway with a minimum of 3000 PSI concrete with added fibermesh (2500 is standard) for reinforcement. The concrete will then get a trowel or broom finish depending on customers preference.
We also offer asphalt maintenance for your Florida driveway.
Typical asphalt maintenance should consist of an annual seal coating to your asphalt driveway. This yearly service will add years to the life of your asphalt driveway. We use StarSeal Supreme coal tar emulsion with an additional 2% Macro+ Additive (Macro+ Additive improves durability and longevity while enhancing color). We start our seal coating process by removing any loose particles and debris from your existing asphalt driveway, by way of motorized blowers and manual scrubbing. Than we treat any heavily saturated oil spots prior to coating We then apply, one to two coats of our StarSeal Supreme sealer.
