New Driveway Construction
RJ Hellmann and Sons Paving Contractors are the Baltimore experts when it comes to new driveway construction.
We will help you design a driveway layout that works for you, with additional parking spaces, a straight driveway, curved driveway, circular driveway, or whatever layout you want, as long as it works with the topography of your property.
And you can count on us to do your driveway construction job right. That means we do all of the necessary preparation that is hidden beneath the finished driveway, but will prevent your asphalt driveway from settling or cracking soon after installation.
We take several steps to ensure proper driveway construction:
- Excavate area to be paved 6-8” deep with positive storm water runoff as a priority
- Compact sub grade and install a 6” layer of crusher run stone, compact with a minimum 2-3 ton vibratory roller, and check for soft areas
- Install a 3” layer of surface mix asphalt with a paving machine where applicable
- Compact with a vibratory roller until free of creases and depressions
If we’re removing an existing driveway, we will haul away all of the debris.
We provide driveway paving in Baltimore County, Harford County, Anne Arundel County and Cecil County, and we install in all but the coldest months. Asphalt should not be applied when the ground is frozen because it will not roll to grade well. Hot asphalt will immediately begin to stiffen up or freeze if it is applied to a frozen surface such as the ground.
The best time to do driveway paving is in the spring, summer and fall. New asphalt can take 1 to 3 days to allow foot and vehicle traffic, but it may take longer if the temperatures are higher. And your new asphalt driveway should cure for about a year before you seal it. After that, you should have it sealed every 2 to 3 years to maintain it properly.
