Many factors can contribute to the life of your driveway:

  • Weather - severe cold and heat

  • Wet ground conditions

  • Sub-base of the driveway: We recommend a minimum of a 6" base material be installed

  • Leaking fluids: oil, gas, antifreeze

  • Drainage of the driveway as well as the landscape which surrounds the driveway

Maintenance and Care of your New Driveway

  • Do not stop and turn wheels of car. Please make sure car is moving.

  • Please do not drive cars on the driveway for at least 5-7 days.

  • Do not park any vehicles over an extended period of time on the driveway for at least 14 days.

  • Backfill perimeter of your driveway as soon as possible to prevent erosion.

  • Avoid any large vehicles (i.e., oil trucks) on or across the driveway for at least 2-3 months.

  • Watering or spraying of your driveway within the first 24 hours will help cool and cure the new asphalt.

  • Sealing of your driveway (only if you wish to) should not be done for at least 1 year after installation.

All work is guaranteed for one full year against cracking or settling only when a 6" pavement base is installed by Morin Paving, Inc.
