If you want to have a country looking, elegant driveway with stability, chip sealing is the way to go. There are many different color choices that can be selected. There are whites, brown, blue, and gray color stones that range in size and shape. We try to match up with the homeowner, the best stone to match their home.
When cracks are present in a driveway any asphalt surface water will enter the cracks and work its way down to the base. Once the water has made its way to the base many different problems will occur. When the base is wet it will cause the asphalt to sink. Sometimes it is just a minor hole, but it will eventually get larger and can cause people to fall and get hurt. The base will also settle and leave areas where the water will collect and cause puddles and freezing. These puddles and depressions can also be fixed with our infrared heat repair but Infrared is a more expensive option than crack filling. Water entering through cracks also cause the asphalt to continue to crack and turn into spider webbed cracking
DRIVEWAYS: ASPHALT MILLINGS, GRAVEL OR STONE
Harwinton Paving provides not only standard paving materials for driveway installations but also gravel, stone, and asphalt reclaimed through the milling process. Using recycled concrete, gravel stone, CR6, asphalt millings or other stone types can be a low cost alternative to a hard surface for your driveway or parking lot. These materials don’t perform as well as asphalt, but have similar characteristics.

Asphalt surfaces, including driveways, parking lots and tennis courts, typically require replacing because the sub-base of the asphalt has failed. Most of the sub-bases that we have run into fail due to being wet or having a really sandy base. If there is a water issue that requires drainage, it should be addressed before the paving is done. It is a waste of money to do an asphalt driveway without first resolving the drainage problem as high water volumes will cause the asphalt to collapse or sink. Curtain drains can be installed along the sides of the asphalt edges. R.C.P. (reinforced concrete pipe) drains or Trench drains can be installed in the driveway to eliminate water problems.
Harwinton Paving has the experience in paving the is second to none. We have provided paving of roadways, driveways, commercial parking lots, drivewayt aprons etc. for decades. We have the equipment and experience to tackle large projects while also working with the homeowner on smaller personalized paving projects.
WATER LINE / SEWER DRAINAGE INSTALLATION
We install all sorts of drainage systems. Curtain drains, yard drains, trench-style, rip rap swales & shoulder drainage systems, brook or river crossings, footing, liter, driveway, storm, catch basins etc. When people have problems with their drainage and sewer systems it can usually be traced back to the installation. If it is not planned well or inadequately installed it can lead to major issues down the road.
