Your home is your castle; it is your refuge and place of safety; most importantly, it your most substantial asset and investment. It is the most valuable thing you possess, and you must work earnestly and steadily to maintain and increase its worth. No matter when you decide to sell your home, you must work from the day you move in to increase its market value. You must work on both the interior and exterior of your home, which includes your driveway, sidewalk, and patio area.
If you have moved into a relatively new building area, the roads and surfaces that surround your home may be relatively underdeveloped. There may be places in which there is mere gravel; there may even be spaces that consist of dirt road. To make your home more attractive and respectable, you should have proper paving laid down.
Manuel Hicks & Sons Paving is one of the most well-known and well-respected paving companies in MD. We can provide you with the kind of pavement you need. The company is full-service—that is, we take up and complete every phase of the pavement laying job. The only decisions you will need to make are where you want the pavement laid and the kind of pavement you want put down.
Manuel Hicks & Sons offers a range of paving types. They include:
Tar-and-chip pavement will cost you less money than the others. It is a sturdy surface that consists of liquid asphalt and small stone chips. The former is laid down first followed by the addition of the latter. The two are then fused and bonded by a special gel.
2. Asphalt Millings
Millings are eco-friendly. They consist of recycled asphalt that is crushed to gravel. The Millings will be laid down with a paver machine and then rolled for compaction. The material is then left to harden and form the pavement that you will drive on.
If you already have a paved driveway, you can have Seacoating applied to protect it. Manuel Hicks & Son offers oil-based sealer to do the job. The sealer is applied using a high-power spray that soaks the driveway. We also offer emulsion sealer, which can be applied using a spray of a brush.
4. Stone and Grading
You can also opt for stone pavement. It is economical and resists the deleterious effects of the freezing and thawing process. This can be a great option for patios, sidewalks, and other outdoor spaces. It may be preferable if you live in a rural area or some other location that is subject to extreme temperatures.
The job of laying down pavement is best left to professionals who possess the expertise, experience, and equipment to do the job right—the first time. Indeed, paving is the kind of job that is hard to correct if it is done wrong. It is not the kind of job that you should trust in the hands of amateurs and novices. Only the most creditable and professional specialists should be allowed to do this work.
