Frequently Asked Questions

How wide should a driveway be?

A single-lane drive is most suitable at 10′ while a double-lane drive is between 18-20′.

What payment methods do you accept?

We take all major bank and credit cards.

How thick should a driveway be?

KCA recommends 4″ total thickness. This entails a 2.5″ binder/base and a 1.5″ wear layer/topcoat. An overlay is typically 1.5″.

How long should my new asphalt driveway last?

A properly installed asphalt driveway should last anywhere from 15-20 years. Once the drive shows its age, it’s crucial to have it resurfaced within a certain time frame. If properly timed, the driveway can be resurfaced, and it costs nearly half of the original cost. A resurfaced drive should last another 10 years.

Do you recommend concrete or asphalt?

At KCA, we do both concrete and asphalt and would recommend asphalt over concrete unless it’s in an industrial setting where it is poured at 7″. Concrete is nearly double in cost and cannot handle heavy truck traffic without it cracking. On the other hand, asphalt is pliable and can handle heavy truck traffic and can withstand the weight. Concrete chips and creates divots from salt during the winter. At about the 8-year mark, the concrete starts to look distressed, and that’s when we get called from a lot of home owners to come replace it with asphalt.

Is your company bonded and insured?

Yes, we are fully licensed and bonded.
