We at Perfection Paving Inc. would like to take this opportunity to say "Thank You" for choosing
us to handle your asphalt needs. We have compiled a list of "Do's and Dont's" that we know from experience
will ensure you get the longest life from your driveway. We hope that you will take a few minutes to look over the following
suggestions. Macadam is a very durable material and will give you many years of satisfactory service if you follow the
few simple steps we have outlined below:
We hope that you find these tried
and true hints helpful. Many thanks for your business, and please call should you have any other questions.
- Heavy trucks over 6000 pounds
should Never go onto your driveway. Be sure to advise delivery services to park their heavy vehicles
in the street. For example, furniture or landscaping deliveries should be made from the curb.
and gasoline DO Not Mix! Gasoline or oil will kill a new driveway faster than you can yell, HELP! The
best advice we can give you is to not allow it to happen in the first place.
- DO NOT turn the
steering wheel of your car while it is stopped! Doing this will cause scuff marks in the surface of the asphalt, and
possibly some pebbling. Power steering marks do not cause any real damage other than to the appearance, so should this
happen try not to be overly upset. Since there is no way to fix these scuff marks, and there is nothing that I can do
to prevent this from happening, your driveway warranty does NOT include power steering marks. Again, do not turn the
steering wheel unless your car is moving. Also, the marks should fade a little and become less noticeable as your driveway
ages. If the marks continue to bother you, the only thing that might help would be to seal your driveway.
- I also want to make you aware that macadam (blacktop) can soften when the temperature climbs. A little caution
during hot spells will prevent any serious problems.
