RESIDENTIAL SERVICES

On Time Paving has provided superior asphalt maintenance to residential locations all over Connecticut. If you need your driveway repaved or need touch-ups on the family basketball court, we can help. Below is a list and description of the residential services we offer.

Driveway Seal Coating

* The pavement surface is thoroughly cleaned using wire brooms and a 14-horse power blower
* Edges of driveways with weeds and grass are cut back using a gas-powered weed whacker
* Oil spots are scraped with wire brooms to remove accumulation of dirt and grease
* Severely damaged asphalt due to oil is treated with a primer but it cannot be guaranteed that sealer will adhere
* A healthy application of commercial-grade Tarconite sealer is applied at a minimum rate .16 gallons per square yard. Five pounds of sand is added to each gallon to provide a skid resistant surface
* Also, the additive Armorflex is included to enhance durability, blackness, and dry time
* The sealer is applied by hand via squeegees and brushes
* Wait a 24-hour period before utilizing the driveway
* Power steering from front tires of a car could leave scuff marks for the first week after sealing. They will disappear

Hot Rubberized Crack Sealing

* All cracks are cleaned to remove dirt, debris, and vegetation
* All major cracks are sealed with the hot rubberized material, Hi-Spec Polmeric Joint Sealing Compound. This material has proven to be the industry standard as the best way to prevent cracks from deteriorating driveways. Cold crack fillers re-crack soon after being applied and are not recommended.
* Hairline cracking will remain as is
* The rubber gets soft on hot days for the first week or so after being applied
* Tire marks are sometimes visible, but they will go away
* Cracks are sealed but do not disappear
* A 3-inch band will run across the width of the crack after sealing to assure that water cannot re-enter the crack. With some cracks, the compound settles just below the level of the pavement

Hot Asphalt Paving and Repair

* Damaged areas in need of repaving are cut out and the old asphalt removed
* If necessary, new, processed dirt is brought in
* Three inches of new asphalt is used and then compressed using a plate compactor or a four-ton vibratory roller

New Driveway

* Remove all existing asphalt from driveway
* Remove any unsuitable base material, i.e. large rocks, soft dirt, or vegetation
* Install processed stone where needed to have a secure base
* Processed stone is then compacted
* One-by-three inch pieces of wood are installed around perimeter of driveway for neatness
* Install new hot asphalt at a spread of three inches
* It is then compacted using a 3-ton vibratory roller
