The asphalt entrance and the landscaping of your house

The good weather has arrived, and with it we very often open the drawer of projects to be done.


Landscaping is one such project; very often by surprise, the melting snow brings a horrible view just ahead of us. The rest of the road gravel on the lawn, the lost mitten that appears not far from the entrance, leftover snacks and probably leaves that had fallen after the fall sweep.

But the asphalt, shall we replace it?

The paving of a residential entrance can last more than fifteen years when it is done in the rules of the art, hence the importance of paying attention to the choice of the contractor and keeping an eye on the progress of the works. But this time elapsed, the entrance becomes a sad vision of cracks, even potholes.

Replacing its paved driveway comes with a whole construction site, noises, big machines.

So why not try to save the existing structure?

In a multitude of projects, cracks can be repaired with TexNov Crack Filler. This allows you to have a surface on which to add a new acrylic layer, such as Pave-Tex. Its all-acrylic elastomers make Pave-Tex a durable solution that will adapt to freeze-thaw cycles.

Contractor’s tips before paving the driveway

  • The layout of your entrance: do you prefer a straight line, curves or an in-between?
  • Optimization of space: the quantity of cars and other vehicles to be expected (boat, trailer, etc.)?
  • Do you plan to install a tempo shelter?
  • Optimize lifespan by providing for secondary use: garbage cans, bicycles, guests parking on the street?
  • Do you want easy access to the house (to get groceries, for example) or to the garage?
