If you observe small cracks or divots, a driveway patch may be the perfect economical option for your pavement. Cracks that are less than a quarter inch wide are the perfect candidates for our patch treatment. Over time, it is natural for the elements to take a toll on your paved surface. Don’t let your driveway or asphalt parking lot look neglected. Give our Grand Rapids asphalt contractors a call before small problems have the chance to grow.


A sealcoat provides a protective layer for your driveway or asphalt parking lot. This is especially important in Michigan where the freeze-thaw cycles can take a toll on your asphalt surface. Sealcoating ensures that precipitation and oil won’t have the chance to permeate your asphalt, causing damage. Sealcoating is also useful for protecting your paved surface against sun damage caused by U.V. rays.

Top Layer

Our top layer treatment (also known as resurfacing) is a great option for asphalt pavements that are not ready for a complete replacement. Our top layer treatment is best for paved surfaces that would benefit from just having the top layer removed and filled in with new asphalt. If you think your driveway or parking lotcould benefit from a new surface, you may want to consider our asphalt paving services.


If your asphalt paved area is more than 20 years old, it may be time to consider replacing it. While it may be tempting to try a cheaper alternative, such as patching, you should know that this is only a temporary solution. Ultimately, it is more cost effective to replace a crumbling asphalt surface than to have your finances drained by constant repairs.
