An asphalt driveway is a practical, long-lasting choice for a home. As with concrete, asphalt is made up of sand and stones and liquid bitumen that binds the two together into a solid surface. The thickness of an asphalt driveway typically ranges from 2 to 4 inches, but the strength of the pavement is determined by the stability of the subsoil and the depth of the gravel base below.

Dirt under an asphalt driveway can have a big impact on the stability and longevity of the driveway. Once the site is excavated, a compaction machine or hand tamper should be used over the entire surface to compact the earth down to force pockets of air and moisture underground. If your garden has a sandy or clay soil, plan to lay geotextile canvas on the dirt bottom to prevent the rocks in the base from sinking into the dirt.

Gravel Foundation

The gravel foundation provides the asphalt with the support it needs to withstand the daily stress of heavy loads. Gravel also provides a flexible pad that can expand and contract when the ground freezes, preventing cracks and other frost damage from uplift. The thickness of the gravel base for an asphalt driveway should be at least 8 inches. Plan to install the rocks in 4 inch layers and compact each layer. To prevent the edges of the asphalt from cracking or chipping, make the gravel base 6 inches wider than the asphalt.

Asphalt Pavement

Road, Paving Stones, CobblestonesThe thickness of an asphalt driveway is in part determined by the proportion of liquid asphalt, sand and aggregates in the asphalt mix. Spreading a 3 inch thick layer of asphalt over the gravel base is thick enough to provide a smooth, solid surface for vehicles. After the hot asphalt is spread over the surface, a roller machine compresses the mixture into a dense uniform layer.

 

Asphalt waterproofing

Applying sealer to asphalt will not significantly increase the level of the asphalt, but it will protect the sidewalk from fading and water damage. The key to successful asphalt waterproofing is patience. Unlike other types of pavement, you have to wait at least six months for the asphalt to set before it cures. Once applied, asphalt sealer lasts up to six years.
