Has your driveway turned into a crumbly, rutty mess over the years? Sometimes, no matter how well you care for your blacktop the deterioration cannot be avoided. Sometimes this happens because of issues that are not so obvious.
You will likely start to see these ruts pop up in high traffic areas. Places you typically park and drive a lot, but this is the not the main reason they develop. Usually, the issue here is water. The ruts may start off small at first, but then deepen from water rushing over them.
So, how do you fix ruts in your driveway? The first thing is to remove the damaged area. However, if you just replace it without figuring out what exactly is causing the issue you will just be in the same boat in the future. It is possible that you need a new subbase, but it could be more.
Sometimes, water flow can be the main issue and determining a new avenue for the water to flow will have to be figured out and resolved. Do not worry, you will not have to consult a different company for this information. We can examine the area and figure out the best way to resolve your water issue and make the necessary adjustments before replacing your asphalt.

Once winter comes, this can become more of an issue. Your snowblower can no longer safely remove all the snow, you try to shovel, and more driveway pieces are removed. Even in the summer you cannot ignore the problem because when you run the weed eater it can be dangerous as the pieces go flying; or you roll your ankle whenever you try to walk in the area. When this happens it is harder to ignore the issues and you should take action to repair the situation.
So, what can you do? Unfortunately when your driveway has reached this state there is no longer the option to resurface and it will likely require removal and replacement of the existing asphalt. There is also the possibility that you will potentially need to replace the subbase.
