Trench/ditch in blacktop driveway!


My husband plans on fixing this hole in our driveway in the next couple of weeks. He's not a do-it-yourself-er. Any tips? Thank you!

The driveway died a while ago. There is no resusitation that will bring it back.
It needs to be replaced.
You can do some things to make it functional, but it will only be a short term solution.

Trench/ditch in blacktop driveway!


Do you have any suggestions where to look for someone who can do this kind of job? (If I were to look in the yellow pages, what would I look under?) Most companies that do driveway sealing can only patch. I'm thinking our long driveway is eventually going to cost us a lot of money!

Thanks!

Look up 'paving' in the yellow pages.

The driveway is called, asphalt or blacktop around here. Look under both terms. Try to get a referral from a friend or neighbor. Better to see previous work to get an idea about the quality. If it's a few years old, that will show you if it holds up.
