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.
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.
Hold your level on this line at the house end and either raise or lower it until it is level, if you have a gap under the level and the line on the end facing the pavement, then you have the correct direction of fall in the driveway. When you are satisfied with the height and fall of the line, wrap some tape around the pegs to the underside of your line, this will save having to go through the same process again if the line is moved for any reason.
The material is literally mixed up and with a trowel spread onto a tarmac surface and left to set. Why not just has a pea shingle driveway? Well many driveway experts have found that after a short period of time the shingle starts to be carried down the road in the tracks of car tyres that have rolled onto the drive, the shingle ends up being carried down the road and periodically the pea shingle has to be replaced.
