Asphalt Paving and Patching
Our services include asphalt paving as well as the repairing of potholes, alligator areas, broken sections, and oil saturated areas, all of which should be done prior to seal coating. Damaged areas can either be saw cut or jack hammered based on your preference or our recommendation
Seal Coat Driveways
Seal coating is the method of protecting your asphalt pavement by applying a coating to the pavement surface. Often homeowners try to do this themselves, but hiring the pavement maintenance professionals at Kitchen’s Excavating will ensure the best results. We understand pavement, know how sealer works, and are trained to stop small problems before they become big, expensive problems. We know the proper techniques to prepare the pavement and apply sealer, as well as using the necessary equipment, and the highest quality materials. We also include aggregate in the sealcoat, which makes the sealer last longer and assures an abrasive surface for car and foot traffic. Without proper aggregate, sealed asphalt can be slick.
We cut out the pothole back to where good asphalt starts. We clean out the sand, rocks and plant materials from the pothole and use a water or air hose to remove any excess debris. We fill the deep holes with rock or gravel to within 4 inches of the surface. We shovel or pore the asphalt mix in one-inch layers. Most materials will cure within a few hours. We apply the asphalt sealer to the entire asphalt surface. This will insure a long lasting patch. Do not drive on the surface for at least 24 hours after the sealant is applied.
We clean out the sand, rocks and plant materials from the cracks and use a water or air hose to remove any excess debris. We patch the cracks with with hot tar, asphalt or driveway sealer depending on the size of the crack. We block off the repaired area to prevent traffic as the material cures. Most materials will cure within a few hours. We next seal-coat the entire driveway to insure a long lasting repair.
