Asphalt Paving in Ottawa 


Asphalt paving is a relatively fast and economic solution to finish your driveway and boost your homes curb appeal. A solid foundation of a minimum 12 inch granular or clean stone base and proper compaction is crucial for an asphalt driveway’s lifetime of 10-20 years. We use a minimum 12 inches of granular or clear stone and compact the base in 4 inch layers to reach a final compaction reading of 98% proctor density. Without a solid base, your asphalt driveway will not have the strength it needs to last its maximum lifetime. We take pride in each and every driveway we install. 


Things to Know About Asphalt Paved Driveways 

Understand that in Ottawa with our drastic climate, a minimum base of 12 inches is recommended to maintain a lifetime of 10-20 years. 

Typical residential asphalt driveways take 1-3 days to complete. Weather or other factors may affect this timeline. 

A typical asphalt thickness for a residential driveway is 2 inches. Additional thickness may be needed depending on weight of vehicles and amount of traffic. This also requires an increase in cost.
