Fall has arrived in the Northeast and so have the cooler air temperatures. Many homeowners in Westchester and Putnam Counties will soon be preparing to batten down for the upcoming winter. One way you can do this is by getting the outside of your home ready for the ice and snow. Therefore, if you’re a homeowner with an old cracked driveway, you should really consider having it repaved.  If you live in Mahopac, Brewster, Bedford, North Salem, Yorktown Heights, Mt. Kisco, Chappaqua, or Cortlandt Manor, Northern Construction will gladly assist you with your next Fall driveway paving project.

It’s Not Too Late To Have Your Driveway Paved

The Northern Construction Team is working hard 8 months a year paving driveways. The best times of the year to pave are late Spring and early Fall when the air temperatures are cooler. Air temperatures between 50-60 degrees are perfect for laying down asphalt. If you missed the opportunity to pave your driveway in the Summer, it’s not too late to still get it done. It’s essential to make sure your driveway is in the right condition before the upcoming winter. Nonetheless, this is the best preventative step to avoid any damage from frost, ice, and snow.

Asphalt Heaving

Heaving is one of the most common issues with older driveways and it occurs when water gets trapped under asphalt and freezes. The ice expands and causes the asphalt to move which can cause cracks to form. It’s important to keep in mind that cracked asphalt will make it more difficult to plow, shovel, and salt your driveway.
