How can I avoid Tire Marks in my new asphalt?
Don’t Be this guy!
Your new asphalt will be very pliable. Do not drive on the new asphalt for 1 week. Do not park on the new asphalt for 30 days. After 30 days you can still get blemishes in your driveway.
Please do not put items like chairs, tables, bike kick stands, gas grills, portable basketball nets, flower pots, on the new asphalt. Those items will cause imperfections in the new asphalt.
If you park anything long term on the asphalt place plywood under the item to disburse the weight.
Do not allow roll off dumpsters on your asphalt.
Can I add a new layer of asphalt over my existing driveway?
We do not recommend overlaying residential driveways. The base under the new asphalt helps determine how long it will last. Installing new asphalt over bad asphalt will cause the new asphalt layer to fail prematurely
How Thick should my driveway be?
Residential driveways should be between 2-3″ thick after compaction.
Should I sealcoat my new asphalt?
We recommend waiting at least 1 full summer after your asphalt is installed before sealcoating.
What will Change with my yard?
Your yard may be slightly higher or lower than your new asphalt, here’s why.
Your driveway has been in your yard for probably 20+ years. During that time the sod has continued to thicken and grow while your asphalt has stayed static.
It is common for your sod to be overgrown 6”-12” along the adjacent areas of the driveway. Once we remove the asphalt under the grass, string line and cut a new straight line for your new driveway it can be a different elevation.
It is your job to fix the landscaping, as needed, once the project is completed.,
This is an example of how the grass is overgrown, and the asphalt is under the sod, on most driveways.
What type of asphalt does Tytann Use?
We use a driveway mix that is manufactured just before we pick it up and we install it HOT!
Specifically we use Level 3 Super Pave specifically called 95340 or Technically SPWEA340B(R) which contains 1/2” or 9.5mm screened aggregate, fines and a hot “B” oil as a binder.
This mix is the Cadillac of driveway mix because it contains a higher concentration of washed materials and a super strong binder with the “B” oil. (“B” is a grade of Binder Oil which is a range from “C” to “H”)
What if another contractor claims to have a “Special” or “Better” type of asphalt? Is it true?? The truth is almost all of the residential asphalt mix comes from a handful of plants in the twin cities. Chances are just about everyone gets the same mix from the same silo.
Why Choose Tytann Blacktopping?
The short answer is that we are a smaller, family owned business, that can deliver huge results.
The reality is almost everyone uses the same asphalt so how do you choose?
Desiree & Ty Huber started Super Seal Sealcoating almost 30 years ago. Over that time we grew our presence in the twin cities by providing the best customer service, follow up and standing behind our promises and warranty. We eventually evolved into Tytann Blacktopping, bringing our core values and extremely high job expectations with us.
We personally train every employee to meet our high expectations, are easy to reach by cell, text or email and Ty is at EVERY install to be sure it turns out and hopefully exceeds your expectations.
What is the base dirt under my driveway?
The general term for the aggregate under your driveway is class 5. It use to be a yellowish orange color because of the limestone content.
Over time our industry realized we could recycle the old asphalt we were disposing by grinding it up, adding some other aggregates back to it and reusing it as our base. This not only helps the environment but has almost completely phased out the expensive limestone mix.
Now the recycle class 5 we use is more brown in color and can sometimes even contain crushed concrete.
We believe a strong driveway starts with the dirt we use underneath so we are sure to use plenty, compact it well and let it firm up before we install the asphalt
