CHIP & SEAL

 Chip & seal is a method that is so durable & economical that it's used on hundreds of miles of highways in Alaska (including the Alaskan Highway), the Yukon Territory, and British Columbia. Ease of application is one reason for chip & seal's popularity, along with attractive appearance, ease of maintenance, durability, and very competitive price.

Pros
  1. Range of color options
  2. 25% cheaper than conventional asphalt overlay
  3. Last twice as long as asphalt overlays
  4. Eliminate the need to crack seal
  5. Enhance safety by providing more grip
  6. Provide an effective moisture barrier for the underlying pavement against water intrusion by sealing cracks in the pavement.
  7. Prevent deterioration of the asphalt surface from the effects of aging and oxidation due to water and sun.
 

Cons

* Just one: snow.  All alternative repairs are sensitive to the scraping of plows and shovels. Rock salt also has the tendency to turn the rock white and deteriorate the project.








Procedure

1.  Fill pot holes, large cracks, and uneven areas. Remove all vegetation and spray weed killer in those areas.  

2. Apply hot tar in sections or all at once

3.  Immediately disperse the rock either by Bobcat, shovel, hand, or all the above.   

4. Within the hour roll over the driveway with a 2 ton roller and electric tapper along the sides.  

(Optional) Apply sealant to make the rock stand out and hold its color, produce shinning look, and provide extra protection.  ($0.25/sqft)
