Pickens Construction, an Anderson, South Carolina construction company specializing in asphalt paving construction, has announced their ability to provide clients with a full range of services related to driveway construction and maintenance. The experienced construction company works with both residential and commercial clients on a wide range of road construction projects.
Pickens construction utilizes Hot Mix Asphalt in their work on driveways. In describing these driveway services, the construction company notes the durability of Hot Mix Asphalt driveways and the years of quality it provides for their customers. They explain, "A high-grade asphalt emulsion sealer (sometimes called bituminous emulsified sealer) should be applied every two to five years, depending on your climate, wear patterns, and the like. Driveways that are sealed regularly look better and last longer."
Pickens goes on to explain what allows Hot Mix Asphalt and emulsion sealers to preserve the form and function of a driveway. "Emulsion sealers consist of asphalt cement treated to mix with water. Once applied, the water evaporates, the material hardens, and the surface is waterproof. For driveways on slopes, some sealers contain sharp sand that will provide added traction."
One of the primary the reasons clients, both home builders and road builders, choose Hot Mix Asphalt, according to Pickens, is the improved appearance of the driveway it creates. The quickness with which it can be paved and used, the ease with which it can be maintained, and its versatile usefulness in both warm and wintry areas are also listed by the construction company as benefits of Hot Mix Asphalt.
Beyond their Hot Mix Asphalt driveway construction and maintenance projects, Pickens Construction also offers many other road construction services. They provide construction and maintenance services for projects involving parking lots, streets, concrete curbs & gutters, sidewalks, subdivisions, storm drainage and site demolition. The company is State Certified in both South Carolina and Georgia. They offer a fully-staffed lab and the ability to perform site preparation (clearing/grading) and surface treatment services.
