While every single project is unique to each of our clients, we follow a clear process so you and our team are always on the same page.
Once we're on-site, we'll listen to your concerns and answer your questions.
We will look over the area with you where you want to place, replace, or repair an existing driveway or other paving project. We’ll inspect the condition of the existing asphalt for areas of weakness like cracks, dips and heaving that would point to subbase issues.
We’ll inspect the integrity of the subbase. The subbase (area beneath your paving project) is the most important part of the paving process. The subbase needs to be solid to ensure there is no movement in the newly placed asphalt. A good subbase will prevent cracks and dips and ensure your new asphalt will last for many years into the future.
We can then determine and recommend repairs or replacement of the base material and repairs or replacement of the existing asphalt or construction of a new driveway, parking area or other paving project.
Once the information is collected, our quoting specialist will write up the specifications and calculate the cost of your project based on the work required. The quote will be sent to you by the next day by email, though typically on the same day as your call.
Our quotes are fully itemized and outline the specifications of each part of the project. After you have looked over the quote and have decided to proceed, we can then schedule your project as soon as possible and accept a deposit.
After your deposit has been accepted, our design specialist works with our other departments to develop a worksite plan that outlines the specific work required unique to your project.
On the scheduled day. The prep crew will arrive at the site. If this is new construction we will begin by prepping the subbase for new asphalt. If it is a repair or replacement we would begin removing the existing surface of the repair or entire area if this is a replacement. Whether it's asphalt or concrete, we haul away all the material. A&D Asphalt recycles 100% of the old asphalt, and old concrete is hauled away to a recycling center, making A&D Asphalt Solutions both a green and environmentally friendly choice.
The subbase is the most important part of your new asphalt driveway. If your subbase is in poor condition and your project quote contains subbase work, the prep crew will examine the subbase for soft areas, tree roots, water drainage problems and other faults. If necessary, the subbase is excavated below the surface to replace the underlying soft clay or soil with stronger aggregate material. Tree roots are removed as necessary. We can also install other technology like Geo Grid to add support to problem areas if required. All the excavated material is then hauled away.
Once the new subbase is installed, new asphalt is evenly placed using our asphalt paver. Once the asphalt has been placed, the entire surface is smoothed and compacted down to achieve the quoted thickness with our roller truck.
