Shingle driveways are still very popular and will continue to be. They are still cheap to create and the security aspect is still favored by those who are in remote areas. One major disadvantage is the shingle has the ability to hold metal objects vertical and these will eventually find their way into the tyres in your car.
Sealcoating a pavement area approximately 60 days after the initial asphalt application will protect it from weather and car fluid damage in the years ahead, lengthening the overall life of your paving. Driveway sealer is composed of a coal-tar emulsion, sometimes fortified with rubber or silica sand for increased durability. A paving contractor will apply sealer either by brush or by spraying it over the area; the method may depend upon the size of the area to be sealed, or upon the individual contractor’s preference.
Make sure the line is tight as you don’t want any sag in your line, this will give a false reading with your levels which could result in your finished driveway holding water.If your driveway is falling towards the house, then simply reverse the fall and levels from the pavement towards an existing rain water gully. If this isn’t possible, you will have to install drainage channels along the front of the property. Water should then be directed into a soak-a-way within your garden area.
You need a flat bed for your pavers to lay on, to do this you can use 18mm galvanised steel electrical conduit, they are not expensive but are better than using timber because the piece of timber or aluminum used to screed the sand will slide along them much easier.
