Professional Driveway Pavers and Driveway Repair in Vancouver and North Vancouver

Are you tired of that old gravel driveway? Try asphalt for your driveway. We offer professional driveway repairs and driveway paving in Vancouver. Asphalt is an excellent paving material. It’s easy to install and cure, making installation time much quicker than traditional concrete driveways. Asphalt is durable and requires little maintenance, which makes it ideal for driveway paving. Crack sealant, seal coating, and general sweeping are all you need to keep it looking tidy. Another great benefit of asphalt is its capacity to retain heat, which means snow melts faster on it, making snow removal much easier. When it comes to choosing reliable driveway pavers in Vancouver, count on Custom Blacktop Co . We have the expertise and knowledge to complete your pavement job on time.

At Custom Blacktop Co., we pour asphalt for driveways throughout Burnaby. We have years of experience working with the material and can provide asphalt driveway paving for all types of driveways – from residential to commercial properties.

Benefits Of Asphalt Driveways

There are several benefits that one can derive from getting an asphalt driveway. These include:


Lower repair needs

Asphalt is made of tar and oils and, thus, is a relatively more elastic material. This means that asphalt does not form cracks very easily and, consequently, does not need to undergo driveway repairs very often.


Easy to keep clean

Asphalt is typically black, and thus, it is easier to keep asphalt driveways clean.


Possible to resurface

Asphalt can be used for resurfacing of both concrete and asphalt driveways. This means that irrespective of which material you initially used to make your driveway, you can resurface or repair your driveway with another layer of asphalt. It will be as good as new.


Easier and faster installation

In most cases, an asphalt driveway can be laid in two working days.


Lower maintenance costs

Since asphalt does not crack easily, the requirement for maintenance, in general, is much lesser than that of concrete driveways. Moreover, even if you need driveway repair services, you can get your asphalt driveway repaired later at affordable rates.


What Causes Asphalt To Fail?

Custom Most reasons for asphalt failure start with some form of cracking which can be caused by the following:


Water Intrusion: One of the most common causes of asphalt failure is water intrusion into the base. When water seeps into the asphalt, it can break down the bonds between the asphalt cement and the substrate, leading to cracks and other issues. Regular sealing and maintenance can help prevent this, but once the water reaches below the surface, driveway repair is the best option.


Heavy Loads: Another cause of asphalt failure is heavy loads. If your driveway is not thick enough, heavy vehicles such as garbage trucks, concrete trucks, or dump trucks can cause stress and damage. Planning out the thickness and asphalt required based on the type of vehicles and traffic can prevent this from happening.


Oxidation and Sunlight: Asphalt surfaces tend to absorb light instead of reflecting it, which can lead to the deterioration and oxidation of the asphalt binders. This can cause your driveway to lose its pliability, resulting in cracking and a change in colour from black to shades of grey. To prevent this, regular sealing and maintenance is recommended.


Tree Roots, Oil and Gas Spills: Oil, gas, and petroleum spills from parked vehicles can significantly impact the durability of the driveway. Oil dissolves the binding agents of asphalt and this reaction causes it to soften and deteriorate over time. Trees and roots can also cause severe problems and heavy damage which can only be fixed by driveway repair professionals.


Weak Subgrade and Poor Construction: The subgrade soil underneath the asphalt supports the wheel and traffic loads. If the subgrade itself is weak, it cannot support vehicle traffic and will move excessively under heavier pressure causing cracks. Proper compaction, repair, and maintenance can prevent this from happening.

Asphalt Driveway Maintenance Tips


Asphalt is one of the most popular materials for paving driveways. Although it is a very durable material, you still need to keep a few things in mind to ensure its longevity. Here are a few tips you can follow:


Manage water and snow puddles: Water and snow are two of the most harmful things for an asphalt driveway, as if they accumulate for a long time, the surface can be damaged. To avoid costly repairs in the future, make sure you sort these issues as soon as you spot them.


Apply seal coating: The top layer of the asphalt driveway should be coated with a heavy-duty sealant. Doing this can prevent damage due to UV rays, water or snow and can ensure better durability.


Fill the cracks: If you ever notice cracks on your asphalt driveway surface, make sure that you get it repaired or filled as soon as you can. Even small cracks can expand a lot and can end up seriously damaging the surface.


Fill potholes: Over the years, constant wear and tear can cause your potholes to develop on the asphalt surface. Make sure you get them repaired as soon as you can so that you can stop any further damage.
