BUILD DRIVEWAYS THAT LAST
At Dan's we carefully procure
quality materials that meet our high quality standards
and optimize the lifetime of driveways constructed by
FOUR STEP PROCESS
To build a quality driveway,
proper time and attention to detail are required
throughout the four-step process:
STEP 1: Old blacktop, stone or
topsoil is removed and replaced with a layer of crushed
stone, known as sub-base.
STEP 2: The sub-base is then
compacted with a vibratory roller. After the
compaction process, a sub-base of 6 to 8 inches deep is
left. This material is applied directly on the
STEP 3: A layer of binder
blacktop is added between the sub-base and the wearing
course (this is recommended for highly traveled
driveways and parking lots). The binder is then
compacted to a thickness of about two inches.
STEP 4: Finally, the wearing
coarse is applied and compacted. The thickness of
the asphalt can vary from 1 1/2 inches to 2 1/2 inches
depending on the binder course application.
Depending on weather
conditions your driveway will be cured and ready for use
within 1 to 3 days from completion.
