Tempe AZ’s premier driveway paving company, Road Tech Paving, wants all our Phoenix Arizona area homeowners to have safe and beautiful driveways. As a local company, we care about our local communities, and that means keeping local homeowners safe. Unfortunately, the hot Arizona sun can quickly break down your asphalt driveway.
If your Tempe AZ asphalt driveway is cracked, gray, or brittle from sun damage, you may wonder: Is it OK to pave over an existing driveway? Don’t worry, Road Tech Paving has the driveway repair services to help!
Resurfacing an asphalt driveway, roadway, or parking lot involves applying a layer of new asphalt, called an overlay, on top of the existing pavement surface. Asphalt overlay is especially useful when the pavement base is still stable but the surface has damage. This is often the most cost-effective driveway paving process, but cracks should be fixed first, or the damage will show through the top layer too.
When the pavement deterioration has reached the gravel aggregate base or there are multiple cracks wider than a quarter-inch, your asphalt driveway may need to be removed and replaced. During this process, pavement contractors cut down through all layers of pavement and then fix the base layer through replacing or compacting it. Next, they pour a new layer of asphalt that’s thicker than an overlay, usually 2 inches or more, for a brand new asphalt driveway. Replacement is a much more expensive driveway repair, so homeowners should think about getting minor repairs or maintenance in a timely manner.
