At Plehal Blacktopping
in Shakopee, MN
we understand that the Driveway Paving
business and dealing with paving contractors
can be confusing and frustrating. So we designed a unique Driveway Repair system to make sure that you understand what can be done, what needs to be done and what makes the most sense for your current situation.
1. SealCoat and Crack fill
If your surface is in good shape, but is faded and has some small cracks, this is the service for you. Plehal will rout and clean out the cracks and fill them with a hot rubberized crack sealer. We will then apply a commercial asphalt-based sealcoat with additives to protect your driveway.
2. Basic Driveway Repair
When your driveway is generally in good shape, but has some areas that have settled or broken up, Plehal will saw cut and remove those areas, compact the base material and install a new layer of asphalt. We can also complete the job with crack filling and a sealcoat.
3. Basic Driveway Replacement.
is a great choice if your surface shows signs of transverse or longitudinal cracking or small settlements, but has no major defects. We start by removing all of your existing asphalt and hauling it to a recycling facility. One of our experienced grading crews will then add class 5 base material as needed to the existing base material to ensure a uniform slope and proper drainage. It is then compacted using a vibratory drum roller. Following the base preparation and inspection by you, we will call to schedule the asphalt installation. Our highly experienced asphalt paving crew will complete the paving process to the precise job specifications. This option comes with a one year warranty.
4. Gold Driveway Replacement
This is the most common choice among our customers. Due to the soil make up in the sub-base of your driveway and the major weather fluctuations in Minnesota or poor construction of the original surface, the base layer's integrity is often compromised and contaminated with poor material. With this option we remove all of the driveway and base material to a depth of six to seven inches below finished grade and haul it away to be recycled. We make sure your sub-base has a uniform slope and is well compacted. We will then install four inches of class 5 base material, grade for proper drainage and compact using a vibratory drum roller. Following the base preparation and inspection by you, we will call to schedule the asphalt installation to complete the paving process to the precise job specifications with our highly experienced asphalt paving crew. The gold option guarantees that your driveway investment is on a stable base and comes with a 2 year warranty.
5. Premium Repaving
's premium option is the most comprehensive driveway product available for your home. We start by completely removing your entire driveway and all of the base material to a depth of eight to nine inches below finished grade and hauling it away to be recycled. The sub-base is then graded and compacted. We then install a layer of geotextile soil stabilization fabric. The fabric provides a barrier between the sub-soils and the new class 5 base material to ensure that the class 5 material will not be contaminated over years of Mother Nature's abuse. We then install six inches of new class 5 base material, which is graded and compacted to achieve proper drainage. Following inspection by you, we will schedule the asphalt installation to complete the paving process to the precise job specifications done by our highly experienced asphalt paving crew. The extra base material plus the stabilization fabric make for the best residential driveway surface for many years to come. Plehal warranties the premium option for 5 years.
