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 South Fulton, Georgia
The 2016 Georgia General Assembly passed bill HB514 to incorporate South Fulton. Governor Nathan Deal signed the bill into law on April 29, 2016. On November 8, 59 percent of the citizens of what would become South Fulton voted to charter the city. This referendum was part of a "cityhood movement" in the Atlanta metropolitan area that began in 2005 with the incorporation of Sandy Springs on the opposite side of Atlanta. Several other communities in Fulton voted to incorporate in 2007. With the passage of the South Fulton referendum in 2016, Fulton County became the first county in Georgia with no unincorporated residential areas. As a result, in 2017 Fulton County also became the first county in Georgia to cease providing municipal services such as fire, police, zoning, and code enforcement. Many former Fulton County personnel and facilities were transferred to the City of South Fulton.
On March 21 2017, South Fulton held elections for mayor and city council, followed by runoff elections before incorporation took effect on May 1. The first mayor of South Fulton was Bill Edwards, who previously served on the Fulton County Board of Commissioners from 2000 to 2014. His term expired on December 31, 2021.
In November 2017, after a one-year waiting period mandated by state law, the city council selected Renaissance as the new name for the city after allowing residents to suggest names. More than 200 names were suggested and the list was pared to 20, including Campbellton (a historical town now partly within the city), Atlanta Heights, Wolf Creek and retaining South Fulton. Following a three-week public notice period and two regular public meetings, which are required to amend the city charter, the city council approved the name change in December 2017. However, Mayor Edwards vetoed the name change on December 18, citing several reasons including contracts and some public opposition.
In its first eight months, South Fulton created its infrastructure, navigated financial challenges and began a transition from Fulton County services.
