Jordan Wells Paving knows how important the proper design, preparations and execution of laying down asphalt pavement is to achieving a long worry-free performance.

Residential/Homeowners Asphalt Driveway Paving That Ribbon of darkness leading to your Garage is a substantial part of the home’s view and does have quite an impact on curb appeal. A broken up, weed infested asphalt driveway declares this home has not been maintained, besides the fact, that you or visitors will not have a dry smooth place to park. As soon as your driveway is showing cracks or potholes, contact a professional asphalt paver to inspect and repair it because it will only continue to deteriorate at perhaps a faster rate than before. Please considered asking Jordan Wells Paving to complementary inspect your driveway and extend (without conditions) an estimate for repair. Repair or replacement might be more affordable then you think. Call Jordan Wells Paving at (804) 823-7644.We will respond quickly and at your convenience schedule a time to come out.

Resurfacing/Rehabilitation of Blacktop driveway
Resurfacing/Overlay Asphalt Resurfacing is a way of repairing existing worn but not severally damaged asphalt by paving over-top of it. There are certain preparations for resurfacing that include milling or shaving the original pavement into a more even surface to help match the existing landscape around it. Areas that are in very poor condition must be removed, pavement cleaned, adhesive tack coat laid down, and then the new asphalt can be applied in compacted layers.
Resurfacing Advantages Resurfacing is less expensive than fully reconstructing a paved surface, and typically takes less time which makes it a more attractive option to businesses and homeowners alike. Homeowners who are not staying in their home long term but still want their driveway to look good for several more years will often choose resurfacing over reconstruction. Life expectancy for a resurfaced parking lot is 8-15 years if maintained with periodic sealcoating and crack repair.
Resurfacing Disadvantages The areas in the distressed asphalt that now puddle will again puddle since in most cases the grade cannot be altered by a resurface. Also, any problems with the subbase will still be there so any cracking in the existing asphalt will come back up through the overlay- this is called “reflective cracking”. The subbase under potholes should be fixed or once again your children can float a paper boat in it. Water is asphalt's greatest enemy- most of asphalt failures can be linked back to a subbase compromised by water so it's very important that water runs away from the asphalt pavement rather than towards it.
Complementary- no hidden commitments inspection Our inspectors have to make an on-site inspection to determine if your driveway is sufficiently intact for a resurface or overlay option. Call Jordan Wells Paving (804) 823-7624 to schedule a free on-site inspection. We will respond quickly and at your convenience make an inspection of your driveway. You don’t have to be present for the inspection. We will report our findings to you as soon as possible- usually a 24- hour turnaround.

New Asphalt/Blacktop Driveways Advantages New Asphalt Driveways can last 30 years or more when properly built and maintained. Asphalt is pliable which makes it more forgiving than concrete when it comes to heaving from freeze and thaw cycles making it a better choice for driveways in more northern climates. Blacktop because of its color will melt the snow or ice much faster than other types of pavement. A new asphalt driveway can be installed by Jordan Wells paving in a relatively short period of time- usually within a few days after the sub-grade is done. The sub-grades installation time-frame depends upon many things such as: Removal of trees and their roots must be complete or they may show up through the pavement. The subsoil condition needs to be inspected and possible remediation taken if soft and unstable. The driveway design load must take the homeowners' lifestyle into account (heavy camper parking on it) or the driveway will fall into ruin at the heavy load sections. Because all homeowners needs are unique, sub-grade installation could take anywhere from less than a day to a few days.

Commercial/Industrial or Business Blacktop Paving First impressions of a customer or client cautiously traversing a muddy gravel based parking lot is hard to counter even when a pleasant interior for shopping or service awaits. Seniors will definitely pass by such a business rather than take the substantial risk to weave through a broken parking lot. Many clients will pass by your business without dedicated parking instead of finding parking along the street- many just don’t want the trouble of a search or they don’t like to parallel park. We can build a new parking lot or resurface an ailing parking lot into a robust, long lasting and attractive parking lot that will inspire consumers to patronize your business. Sidewalks and pathways can also be designed and built to help drive and encourage foot traffic to your door. Overlaying or Resurfacing is less expensive than fully reconstructing a paved surface, and typically takes less time, making it a great option when considering major asphalt repairs. This is more appealing for a large parking lot as it is less costly to resurface a large area then to replace it. The badly damaged areas can be dug up and the subbase inspected and repaired before the pavement is laid. When the pavement has cooled, markings or striping can be reapplied.

Correctly done Asphalt pavement’s functional role to a construction project is critical to the safety and overall impression of users, whether you’re building a road, a parking lot or a driveway. Potholes, cracks or poor grading creates an unwelcome, and possibly unsafe, experience for customers, guests, residents and other users.

Our Sealcoating is better than what the Bigbox stores offer for DYI We offer application of all types of sealcoating to protect and waterproof asphalt pavement from the ravishes of UV rays, oil spills, gas spills and rain water- these are common oxidizers that slowly destroy the asphalt binder (the black glue that holds the crushed rock together). Sealcoating fills and smooths surface cracks and porous aged areas of asphalt producing a non-porous surface where dirt and debris easily washes off. Sealcoating should be done every 2 to 3 years otherwise you may end up with pealing and cracking if done too often. Most people think more is better when using sealers from the big box stores so they put on way too much- think of it as caking something on a flexing surface. Don't ruin your driveway give Jordan Wells Paving (804) 823-7644, an opportunity to complementary inspect your driveway. After the inspection, we will recommend a specific product that will suite the unique needs of your driveway; then using the chosen sealer, along with our professional application, we will seal your driveway to last longer and protect better than anything you can buy in the big box store.

Parking Lanes Marked
Parking Lot Striping\Marking We provide the ADA required markings to keep customers, visitors and employees safe and to maximize your parking spaces. Paving cost estimates or bids: We want to give reassurance that should you ask for a pricing estimate we will not suggest a proposal that is camouflaging a serious underlying problem such as, repairing an ailing pavement with crack patches and sealant when it should instead be milled and paved- removing enough thickness to level and smooth the surface. Nor will we suggest doing work that does not need to be done. Our estimates will consider clients’ needs, desires, cost, longevity and appearance. It’s a false economy to repair the surface without addressing the causal agent of deterioration- you may have to go through another repair in a few years. We will give you the tools to decide your most cost effect and appropriate repair or installation that will provide years of trouble free service for your property, and enhance its value. Jordan Wells Paving offers free inspections and drainage evaluations. Our managers are state certified. Call (804) 823-7644
