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 Newnan, Georgia
Newnan was established as county seat of Coweta County (replacing the defunct town of Bullsboro) in 1828, and was named for North Carolinian General Daniel Newnan. It quickly became a prosperous magnet for lawyers, doctors, other professionals, and merchants. Much of Newnan's prosperity was due to its thriving cotton industry, which relied on slavery.
Newnan was largely untouched by the Civil War due to its status as a hospital city (for both Union and Confederate troops), and as a result still features much antebellum architecture. Celebrated architect Kennon Perry designed many of the town's 20th-century homes. During the Atlanta Campaign, Confederate cavalry defeated Union forces at the nearby Battle of Brown's Mill.
On April 23, 1899, a notorious lynching occurred after an African-American man by the name of Sam Hose (born Tom Wilkes) was accused of killing his boss, Alfred Cranford. Hose was abducted from police custody, paraded through Newnan, tortured, and burned alive just north of town by a lynch mob of roughly 2,000 citizens of Coweta County.
Newnan was also host to the trial in 1948 of wealthy landowner John Wallace, the first White man in the South to be condemned to death by the testimony of African Americans, two field hands who were made to help with burning the body of murdered white sharecropper Wilson Turner. These events were portrayed in the novel Murder in Coweta County. The film version starred Johnny Cash, Andy Griffith, and June Carter.
In 1968, Kmart opened a warehouse in Newnan, which slowly established it as a major hub for distribution in the area.

In 2015, the distribution center closed with a loss of 164 jobs.
