Why Chip Seal?

  • To keep water from penetrating the driveway structure.

  • To fill and seal cracks and reveled surfaces of old pavement.

  • Select a color that suits your home and your personal style.

  • To provide an anti-glare surface during wet weather and an increased reflective surface for night driving.

  • To seal the pavement surface-minimizing the effects of aging.

  • To provide a highly skid-resistant surface, particularly on wet pavements.

  • Chip Sealing is usually more economical than paving.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to questions regarding how to care for your new stone driveway.

What is the initial set time?
All chip stone driveways will have some loose stone on top. This stone should be left on the surface for one year. You may find an area, like on a curve, where the stone begins to pile up from the car tires continuously pushing it. When this occurs you can use a heavy duty broom or rake to spread the stone back onto the areas that it came from, or you may simply remove the excess stone at this time.

What do I do about loose stone?
Different types of surfaces require different set times. The weather and temperature also dictate the set time. We recommend 2 to 5 days before vehicles are let onto a chip stone surface. Our sales personnel or crew leader will take all of these factors into account and let you know how long to stay off of your new surface. Remember, the liquid asphalt is the “glue” that holds the driveway together. One of the most commonly asked questions we hear is, “are we supposed to be able to see black when we look at the driveway?” The answer is yes. You should be able to see some black when you look straight down at the surface. Being able to see the liquid asphalt when you look through the stone is not a bad thing. However if the liquid asphalt is bleeding up to the top of the stone, more stone may be applied to the area. This will prevent tracking of the liquid asphalt.

How do I remove snow?
We recommend that if you are plowing the driveway, the shoes should be lowered to hold the cutting edge up about a ½”. If you have a snow blower with adjustable shoes, lower them to hold the machine up about a ½”. The reason for this is mainly to prevent loose stone from ending up in your yard. Salt and ice melting products will not harm the stone or liquid asphalt, however keep in mind that ice melt can aid in the development of frost heaves making your driveway look wavy or lumpy. These frost heaves will go away when the ground thaws in spring. After one year, you can have the driveway swept to remove any remaining loose stone. In the years to follow you can raise up the shoes and be in direct contact with the driveway without worries of the loose stone getting in the yard. Also, we can recommend a professional snow removal contractor with experience with stone driveways upon request.

How do I backup the edges of my driveway?
Whenever a new driveway, road or parking lot is installed, the new surface may sit higher than the surrounding landscape. If this is the case, we strongly recommend backing up the edges with topsoil, fill or some sort of retainer (stone wall, etc.). This will ensure the integrity of the driveway edges. This will also prevent undermining due to water run off.
