We are constantly looking toward the future- offering long-lasting, cost-efficient, and recycled paving & sealing solutions to you!
Grading is an important part of the paving process as it ensures that water will drain properly and away from any buildings to avoid flooding issues!
The grader has a blade that can be adjusted at multiple angles to provide the correct pitches.
Environmental solutions are an important consideration with every project. Our reclaiming services are testament to that as it allows on site recycling! In addition to the environment benefiting, you can benefit with reduced costs because there is less trucking and man hours!
In case you are not familiar, a reclaimer will dig down 8” and grind the existing asphalt to be used as a base.
Finally after the prep work is complete we are able to pave! Mix is loaded from the dump truck into the paver box. A conveyor then carries the asphalt to the auger which places the material in front of the screed.
The screed then spreads the mix , and additional mix is shoveled into area’s that need more to create a beautiful finish.
How Long Should I Wait Before Driving on New Asphalt?
The time you need to wait before driving on your newly paved driveway depends on several factors, such as the type of paving material used and the weather conditions. In general, it is recommended to wait at least 24-72 hours before driving on a newly paved driveway. However, it’s essential to follow the specific guidelines provided by Fuller Paving LLC once your specific paving project is completed.
Here are some general guidelines for common paving materials:
Asphalt driveway: For a newly laid asphalt driveway, it is typically advised to wait at least 24 to 48 hours before driving on it. During this initial curing period, the asphalt needs time to cool and harden to support the weight of vehicles.
Concrete driveway: Concrete driveways require a longer curing time compared to asphalt. It is best to avoid driving on a freshly poured concrete driveway for at least 7 days to allow it to gain sufficient strength.
Weather conditions: Weather plays a significant role in the curing process. Especially here in Connecticut. High temperatures can speed up curing, while cold and wet conditions can slow it down. If it’s particularly hot, the waiting time might be shorter, but if it’s cool or rainy, you might need to wait longer.
