What’s Hiding Under Your Driveway?

A driveway is only as good as what is under it. A proper subbase is required for your driveway to stand the test of time. Without a proper gravel foundation the water in the soil will not be able to properly drain and will cause a lot of the issues we talked about in previous posts including:

Crumbling

Cracking

If you notice a lot of puddles in a gravel subbase when it rains from where the fine aggregates become weakened and wet, you may need to consider replacing the subbase prior to paving.

If you currently have a muddy, mucky area, you will absolutely need to stabilize it in some manner. In cases that are bad we would typically recommend at least 6” of compacted crusher run (a common gravel used for drainage, paving, walkways and driveways) to achieve a suitable subbase.

A successful driveway requires much consideration of subbase. Luckily, we know how to accurately assess your subbase needs and make sure to maintain the health of your driveway. Contact us today for help with your driveway issues!
