This is a project Monarch Paving tackled a little while ago. This road hadn’t been paved or maintained in 30 years! The damage was mostly seen in the improper drainage system. The water should have slid off the asphalt but instead it began to pool and damage the surface. The asphalt was wearing away from underneath causing pieces of the surface to collapse because the subgrade underneath washed away. This caused big pot holes to form. Improper maintenance and neglect also hindered the asphalt’s longevity. (See ehow for great DIY asphalt maintenance tips) The road became intolerable and had to be repaved. This North Vancouver home was in for an afternoon of hot, black, sticky asphalt.
After we gave it a new pave job the pavement looked great! We removed the existing asphalt and repaved the entire surface. The road was smooth, black and sexy. The whole exterior of the home looked more updated and polished.
