Cold weather can be a very harmful force for your asphalt driveway to deal with, and proper care and preparation can save you a great deal of time and effort down the line. The experts at McFarlane Paving are professional pavers with over fifty years of experience helping homeowners prepare their asphalt for adverse weather.
Here are some asphalt paving in Bergen County tips:
- Good driveways are built from the bottom up, so if there are slopes, divots or uneven patches there is a chance water can get underneath.
- Ice inside the cracks of your driveway or underneath will destroy the pavement as it hardens. The best driveway is sealed completely.
- Smooth doesn’t mean good. Make sure that the drainage of your driveway is directed away from your foundation and towards the street or another drain.
- Salt for de-icing could damage the top layer of your asphalt. A liquid de-icer could not only have better results overall but could similarly save you from harming the driveway.
