Traditional gravel or pea shingle driveways: These were once only for the very wealthy. They were introduced as a security measure. The idea being that when a vehicle or person made contact with the shingle, the noise would alert the household to the intruder.
As tough as it is, asphalt can be damaged by sun exposure, excessive rain, ice, and temperature changes. Years of gasoline and oil drippings from cars can also cause surface deterioration. Not only will deteriorating asphalt fade from a crisp black to an ugly gray, but it can also become rough and crack open-and water accumulating in pavement cracks or holes can lead to further damage.
By laying five to eight inches of gravel beneath the asphalt you are ensuring a greater life expectancy for your asphalt driveway. Also by having your asphalt paving company install your asphalt finish at least one foot before the asphalt covers the gravel, you are allowing your asphalt driveway to not crack when visitors drive to the edge of the finished surface.
When you are thinking of paving your driveway you need to figure out what material you would like to pave it with. There are many options out there for you to choose from, this includes brick and block paving driveways.
