Asphalt Contractor FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right asphalt company for your job

1. How many grades of asphalt are there?

There are three different grades of asphalt:

  • I-2 (Base). This asphalt grade consists of ¾ inches of stone. It is commonly used in the stabilisation of corn level.
  • I-5 (Top). A more common grade for asphalt used for businesses and homeowners.
  • I-4 (Commercial Top). This final asphalt grade is a mixture of ¾ inches of stone. It is used to add stability and strength for the asphalt.

2. Can I do my own asphalt driveway?

There are three things to consider when looking to do your own asphalt driveway.

  1. Do you have all the necessary tools and equipment? For instance, you will need a packer or a roller to smooth out and level the sand base. Next, to help you properly fit in edges as well as corner pieces, you will also need saws that have stone cutting blades. You might also need to decide whether to use larger or smaller stones while fitting. This is because, while larger stones are easier to fit, smaller stones are more flexible and easier to carry by hand.
  2. What is the size of your planned driveway? Larger driveway projects are expected to be more complicated than one-car driveways.
  3. Is it that costly to hire an asphalt paving contractor? As a material, asphalt is cost-effective and easily installed. Since it will not require much laborious work, hiring an asphalt contractor is actually inexpensive.

3. How to find the best asphalt contractor?

Finding the best asphalt contractor may be a difficult task. You have preferences in mind when it comes to your asphalt construction project. Therefore, you’d want workers who can follow those preferences. Below are some tips on how to find the best asphalt contractor:

  • Reference. You might have friends, family, or coworkers who have previously hired an asphalt company. It’s an excellent opportunity to ask for their recommendations and evaluate how effective their suggested contractors are.
  • Experience. Those who have worked with plenty of asphalt paving projects are sure to have the necessary skills to provide you with high-quality asphalt construction work.
  • Permits, insurance, and warranties. Always make sure that you hire a contractor who has a permit. This ensures that they have all the skills and experience needed for the job.
