Many times an old driveway or parking lot can simply be re-surfaced to extend the life and look. This can greatly reduce the labor and material costs as opposed to a new asphalt surface.
To re-cap your driveway we start by cutting out sections at the entrance way, sidewalk, garage, or other areas so that we can properly tie in the new surface evenly. Next we patch crumbled areas and fill in low spots. Then we tack the edges with tar and pave with 2 inches of asphalt that will compact to a 1 and a half inch asphalt surface. After completion you will have a brand new looking surface that will increase the life at a lower cost that other methods.
*NOTE: Some commercial jobs require more material to be used depending on traffic or vehicle vehicle weight.
