If you are like most people, your house is the most important asset in your possession. You must do all that is necessary to maintain and increase its value. A range of factors will help you do so. You must refurbish the interior of your home of course, but it is just as vital to improve the exterior of your house where necessary. This is especially important if you have purchased a home in an area that is under development. The pathways and commuting spaces of such areas are not always what they should be. It may be necessary to have pavement installed around your home in order to give it the look of a proper finish.
To get the outcomes that you desire, you must work with a company that specializes in this kind of work. Manuel Hicks & Sons Paving specializes in paving Maryland. Manuel Hicks & Sons Paving is a full-service company. We apply our expertise at every stage of the paving process—from the assessment of the ground to be worked on to the finished product.
There is more than one type of pavement you can have put down. Here are some of the types of pavement you will have to choose from:
Tar-and-chip pavement is the most inexpensive. It nevertheless offers solid surface—much sturdier than gravel or plain dirt road. Tar-and-chip consist 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
This an eco-friendly alternative. If you are environmentally conscious, then this is the pavement for you. Millings consist of recycled asphalt that is crushed to gravel. The process of laying it as follows: the area to be paved is first graded, the millings are then applied through a paver machine, and then all is rolled for compaction. The material must then be left to harden and form the pavement that you will drive on.
If you already have a paved driveway, you can have Sealcoating 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.
Having pavement laid down is not the kind of job you want to leave to any old vendor. You must have the utmost trust and confidence in the company you hire. They should provide you with a range of excellent solutions. And they should be able to complete the job at a reasonable price.
