The Top 5 Questions to ask yourself to achieve the perfect asphalt driveway
These Questions and the accompanying information will play a vital part in giving you the perfect asphalt driveway you expect. After all, nobody knows your property like you do.
By discussing the following with our estimator, we will be better able to plan, design and construct the perfect asphalt driveway to accommodate your needs and wants.
1. How does the water flows through your property after rain? And, where does it gather or pool
Taking notes and even photos of water flow direction, and stagnation helps us ensure we excavate the land accordingly and consider, quote and supply the correct type and quantity of materials required. We may even suggest the placement of a drain or water diverter to ensure water can still escape efficient and prevent pooling.
2. Do you have or are you planning to plant vegetation such as bamboo or other invasive trees or shrubs, near where you propose to place your new driveway or path?
We will consult with you on the best course of action with surrounding trees and can include tree removal as part of your quote. We can also suggest a professional tree service if you have any large trees that need removal.
3. Are you planning on edging your new driveway or path?
We suggest you do this after the asphalt has been laid. This will ensure your new edging still looks fresh and will exactly meet your expectations. You will also know what height your edging should be and what will work best once the driveway or path is completed. We can provide a quote, from a professional edging contractor, that our company knows, likes and trusts. This will result in a superb finish to your new driveway or path.
4. What type of traffic will be using your driveway?
If you have trucks (generally over 3 tonne), entering and exiting your property on regular basis, we will ensure that your driveway is designed to sustain this. Our Asphalt Driveways Estimator will advise you of the best course to take to ensure your perfect asphalt driveway is just that.
5. Would you like your spoil (excavated ground materials) removed or to stay on-site?
Some customers opt to keep the spoil to use elsewhere on their property while others are happy for us to remove it.
