Drainage is an important factor to consider when installing a new asphalt parking lot, asphalt driveway, or paver patio. Water runoff is not easily absorbed into blacktop or pavers like in grass. The water will run over the surface of the new pavement area until it finds a permeable material to seep through. This is why we see standing water on improperly installed asphalt or pavers.
An additional advantage of installing new drainage in your asphalt driveway or paver patio is that you can tie in the existing gutters with the new drainage system. After connecting the gutter system to the new drainage, all of the water will flow directly into the drain, meaning you will never see a drop of water again! This eliminates concerns about ice forming on frozen puddles, and creates a safer parking lot or asphalt driveway. We can install drywells, strip drains, catch basins, and more advanced drainage projects.
