Asphalt overlays are a great way to improve the appearance and functionality of your driveway. By applying an overlay to your asphalt surface, you can correct any damage that has been done to the surface, fill in any cracks or potholes, and give your surface a new and fresh look.
There are a number of benefits to having this method of pavement maintenance, including:
- Improving the appearance of your driveway or parking lot.
- Filling in cracks and potholes to prevent further damage to the surface.
- Increase the lifespan of your driveway or parking lot by protecting it from the elements.
- Provide a smooth, level surface for vehicles to drive on.
The cost of an asphalt overlay process will vary depending on the size of the area being covered and the condition of the surface. In general, you can expect to pay anywhere from $2 to $10 per square foot.
The first step of the asphalt overlay process is to clean the surface of your driveway or parking lot. This will help the new asphalt to adhere properly and will also prevent any dirt or debris from becoming trapped under the new layer. Once the surface is clean, the contractor will repair any cracks or potholes. Finally, the area is graded so that water will drain away from the surface.
After the asphalt has been applied, it will need to cure for 24 hours before it can be used. Once it’s cured, you’ll have a smooth, level surface that is ready for use.
So when is the best time to get an asphalt overlay? That depends on your individual situation. But typically, the overlays should be applied when the surface is in good condition and there is no significant damage that needs to be repaired.
And as with any new asphalt surface, it is important to take some precautions to ensure that your overlay lasts for many years. Some of the things you can do to care for your new asphalt surface include:
- Avoid driving when the surface is wet.
- Don’t allow oil or grease to spill on the surface.
- Park in the same spot so that the weight of your car(s) doesn’t cause excessive wear and tear.
- Sweep the surface regularly to remove any dirt.
- Apply a sealant to the surface every few years to protect it from the elements.
If you are considering an asphalt overlay project for your driveway or parking lot, be sure to consult with a contractor who can help choose the right overlay for your needs. By choosing the right contractor, you can enjoy all the benefits of an asphalt overlay for many years to come.
When it comes to choosing a contractor, it is important to do your research. There are a number of factors you’ll need to consider including the contractor’s experience and reputation, as well as the cost of the project.
It’s also important to make sure that the contractor is licensed and insured. By choosing a reputable contractor like Buckhead Paving & Construction, you can be sure that your asphalt overlay project will be done right the first time.
And if you’re not sure where to start, you can ask for recommendations from friends or family members who have had an asphalt overlay done. Once you’ve found a few contractors to consider, be sure to get quotes from each one so that you can compare costs.
Moreover, be sure to ask about the process for an asphalt overlay. The contractor should be able to give you a timeline for the project and explain what you can expect during and after the installation.
By taking the time to choose the right contractor and understand the process, you can be assured that your asphalt overlay will be a success.
About Kennesaw, Georgia
As the Western and Atlantic Railroad was being built in the late 1830s, shanty towns arose to house the workers. These were near a big spring. A grade up from the Etowah River became known as "the big grade to the shanties", then "Big Shanty Grade", and finally "Big Shanty".
Camp MacDonald, a training camp, was located there from 1861 to 1863.
During the Civil War, Big Shanty was the site of major fighting in the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain, part of the larger Atlanta Campaign. Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, located southeast of the city limits, now contains many of these historic areas. Much of the surrounding land has been developed, and many of the buried artifacts have been searched for and taken by people with metal detectors. Some artifacts of the Civil War are still on display in the visitor center of Kennesaw Mountain.
L.C. Chalker purchased a 1.25-acre (0.51 ha) tract of land adjacent to the Kennesaw Cemetery from J.W. Ellis in 1934, which was sold for burial purposes. Chalker purchased another 1 acre (0.40 ha) adjacent to the first parcel in 1948, which was also to be used for a cemetery. The Chalker family managed these portions of the cemetery until they were sold to the City of Kennesaw in the mid-1950s. The earliest known burial is the infant Lucius B. Summers, who was interred in 1863. Other grave markers date as far back as the 1860s to the 1890s. Civil War veterans are buried here. The Kennesaw Cemetery is still in use.
In March 2004, First Lady Laura Bush designated Kennesaw a Preserve America Community.
