What types of services do driveway contractors provide?


From installation to repair, Santa Barbara driveway contractors are responsible for a variety of planning, installation, construction and driveway maintenance services.

Driveway installation. Before work begins on a new or replacement driveway, your professional should create plans based on your needs and material choices, as well as your property grade, soil and other landscape factors. When it comes to the actual driveway construction, driveway contractors are responsible for preparing the site, obtaining the necessary materials, making sure a strong foundation is laid, operating equipment and heavy machinery, and cleaning up the site afterwards.

Driveway paving. Your professional will first remove any current driveway surface and make sure the land is even, properly graded and that the base soil or surface is compacted. Crushed rock is then poured onto the base material and packed in tightly. Asphalt is then applied and compacted with a heavy roller machine, which makes it smooth and flat. Lastly, the edges of the driveway should be treated and the asphalt should be at a 45-degree angle at the edges.

Driveway sealing. Sealcoating is a process aimed at protecting your asphalt or concrete driveway from the elements. Your driveway professional will first prepare the pavement, which includes eliminating stains, filling cracks, patching potholes and cleaning the surface, and then apply the sealer, which will need to dry for at least 12 hours.

Driveway resurfacing. This process, also known as an “overlay,” consists of replacing the top layer of the driveway. A more cost-friendly option than a complete driveway replacement, and a more effective long-term solution compared to patching, resurfacing involves installing a new layer of material (usually asphalt) over the existing pavement, which leaves the driveway looking brand new and the damage covered.

Driveway materials. While most driveway contractors in Santa Barbara primarily work with asphalt, they are also experts on the wide range of available driveway materials. If you are looking for something different than a standard asphalt driveway, your pro can help you select driveway pavers or customize a brick driveway design.

A driveway installation and maintenance professional may work closely with a Santa Barbara builder, landscape professional or various manufacturers and suppliers.
