An inviting and attractively paved driveway creates an impression about your home and says a lot about how you maintain it and value it. Beautifully paved Blacktop welcomes visitors and guests and creates a focal point for passers-by.
An attractively paved residential driveway not only adds “curb appeal” but it adds real value to your home and is a sound investment. Homebuyers see the driveway first and in many cases will prejudge the upkeep and condition of the house based upon what they infer from the condition of the driveway. A cracked poorly maintained driveway makes visitors and buyers alike wonder what else might not be in such good repair, and in extreme cases possess a safety hazard that can be a liability.
Every driveway is unique and our team of experts approaches each driveway as a custom project. Not only are the size and shape often different, but the ground they are laid on is different and must be prepared properly ensuring that adequate drainage and a proper aggregate base layer are planned and built before any asphalt or concrete gets laid down.
We provide asphalt driveways and concrete driveways. The type of material to be used depends on your driveway needs and your budget. For more information, please read our article about concrete vs. asphalt driveways, but don’t worry our team will advise on which is best and will give you an estimate accordingly.
When it comes to residential services, Burnaby Blacktop uses professional-grade equipment and the same professional crews for residential paving that we use for our large commercial jobs. We have the right tools to do the job properly the first time, whether it’s “kind of small” or “really big”. We know how to prepare a solid base, plan accordingly for any drainage, and identify and remove potentially problematic objects, such as buried tree trunks, that if left in place, may eventually become long-term issues. Based on your intended usage we will properly select the right thickness of asphalt to meet your needs and budget. We will make sure the blacktop is laid with an even thickness and a smooth grade to avoid water pooling and long term weak spots.
We can also add professional-grade concrete curbing and pathways should you wish to really put a finishing polish on your paving project. In addition to driveways and pathways, we can also do recreational areas such as tennis courts, concrete steps and patios and weight-bearing platforms that need to be well-built and level, such as for a hot tub.
If you have an existing driveway that has developed problems or is simply showing signs of age our paving contractors can seal cracks, properly repair (not just throw in gravel and a tamp down few shovels full of asphalt) larger holes, apply seal coating and if necessary remove and replace the old blacktop layer with a newly paved driveway. But more than that, we can also fix drainage concerns and other issues.
