New driveway questions...
I am considering having my driveway done with asphalt. It has been 3/4 stone for 10 years... I have added more stone twice in that time. It is compacted pretty well, and I would guess if the loose stuff were removed and the remaining surface graded it would be 6-8" of stone base.
I am getting quotes for asphalt now... but my concern is that down the road we want to have a pool put in in our back yard, and heavy machinery will need to use the driveway to get to the back yard. Will a concrete truck and front loaders have any impact of a cured asphalt driveway? How long does it take to cure to full strength? I am also concerned about the edges getting screwed up where the trucks would go off the driveway into the back yard.
My other option is pavers, but that is quite a bit more expensive... and not sure if that would hold up better or worse to truck traffic.
Anyone every have heavy machinery on a new asphalt driveway?
