I have never been involved with any paving, but have a new paving question. It is my understanding that when an area is paved, the ground is first leveled or pitched and compacted, as the asphalt is nothing more than a top-coating. I have an area of my existing driveway that needs to be repaved, additionally, another area needs to be re-pitched since it pitches towards my house. I do not envision that this could be handled with a simple new application of asphalt, can it? Can they build up an area w/ asphalt to change pitch?
The other option I see is to totally remove the existing asphalt, add fill, regrade, then re-pave....
