Ramsey, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/08/2014 -- Now that the snow is piling up across the northeast, homeowners have begun preparing their houses for the upcoming winter. One area that is often overlooked in these preparations is the driveways. Many do not realize these seemingly invulnerable surfaces require a good deal of maintenance. Helping owners extend the lifespan of the asphalt, McFarlane Asphalt has announced they have availabilities for their crack repair services this winter. Not only will the service improve the appearance of the property, but it will also help the asphalt endure the harsh winter.
When homeowners notice small cracks in their driveways, it is important to take immediate action. As the water collects in the openings, it will freeze and expand. This expansion will cause the fissures to grow with the potential to develop into potholes. If the cracks are caught early enough, they can be filled and easily hidden. As they become larger and jagged, there is no amount of repairs the company can do to save the driveway. Preventative maintenance can be the difference between spending a small amount of money and spending thousands on having a new driveway installed.
If the cracks do become too big to be filled, McFarlane Asphalt, the leading paving contractor in Bergen County, NJ, can remove the existing driveway and install a new one. During the process, they will level the ground and place in a stone base that will allow for proper drainage. Once the soil has settled, they will pour two and a half inches of asphalt that will be ready for use in two to five days. Along with their blacktop option, they also can use pavers to create an elegant driveway.
With the potential damage winter poses, residents should not put off any maintenance to their asphalt. Whether the residence requires crack filling or driveway paving in Bergen County, NJ, homeowners can expect superior craftsmanship from McFarlane Asphalt.
