Are You Seeing Cracks?
Small cracks or deep cracks we will take care of it for you, sit back and relax. Call us for a free estimate before those cracks develop into a larger problem and you’ll have to have the entire area re-paved.
Take this tip from us, the proper care and maintenance of your Asphalt is important. We can help with damage to walkways, driveways, apron or play areas.
The cracks allow water to seep under the asphalt and flow into the earth below. Over time this water can cause portions of the blacktop to lift and in some case dip or buckle.
This can especially happen in driveways under your car’s tires. If you have an especially heavy vehicle, such as a truck or recreational vehicle, obviously the weight plays a factor in compromising of the location.
At Glen Cove Paving, we not only evaluate the area in question, determine the best course of action and give you a FREE ESTIMATE with no obligation.
Seeing Pooling and divots?
Just like on the golf course, divots are not a good thing. Maybe a few years back your driveway or blacktop patio was a beautiful smooth luster and level. Now, perhaps over time, you are starting to see areas where it seems the asphalt has begun sink- creating a bit of a hole. In addition, now, every time it rains you are seeing all the water pool in that one area… Well, don’t panic, but don’t delay either… This happens and we’ve helped many, many, yes many, customers save their investment by repairing the area properly.
If left unattended these areas can end up as a pothole, which, although we could do it, would require much more material and work.
If you are seeing areas of your blacktop heaving or showing signs of distress, it’s time to address the issue, don’t delay, call us today.
The driveway the
Curb appeal of your home...
Your driveway is one of the focal points of your home, it should be in pristine condition. Allow us to take a look at it and give you a free estimate on bringing it back to its original luster. Installing a concrete patio is very popular not only her on Long Island but throughout the country. What every you choose, an asphalt concrete pavers, driveway, stone, brick, concrete or cement, the driveway is most financially responsive and economical way to make your home accessible. Concrete is the most durable and requires the least amount of maintenance, compared to, say gravel or dirt. Even crushed stone and seashell driveways can become unsightly over time.
Keeping Up On Appearance
Ways For Proper Repair
Often, just filling the crack is, well, to put it bluntly, just throwing a BandAid on it. We suggest you GIVE US A CALL and allow us to evaluate the situation for a no obligation estimate. If a patch is all you needed, we will use the best commercial grade patching compound on the market to make sure the area is repaired correctly.
If you seeing that water is pooling in an area but it isn’t broken and it isn’t too deep, you are probably okay and just need a patching. As certified concrete contractors we can evaluate the job and, in most cases, find that it just needs to be treated. Often times, sloping or pitched areas can rehabilitated making it level again.
You see, we have done many driveways, walkway, patios, etc. using cement and concrete but we have also found that the preferred materials used on Long Island is asphalt. This material, sometimes referred to as tar, is the preferred material for not only residential driveways and walkways but also roadways and commercial parking lots.
We work with the best manufactures and materials in the industry and make sure we have the right products available for any situation. If you have a large commercial parking lot or a small driveway repair, don’t hesitate to call us, your local contractor at 516-210-4282

How Big Are The Cracks?
When it comes to evaluating the repairs needed, we will measure the size of the cracks and make the repairs accordingly. If the crack is less than ½ inch wide we can use a filler. Once the filler is cured, we’ll return and seal the driveway bringing it back to a uniformed, clean and luxurious black shine.
If they are larger than a half inch, don’t fear, we have state-of-the art products that will permanently mend the great gorge (lol) to the point you’ll never know it’s there… and then once the filler has cured, we’ll return and seal the driveway restoring it back to a uniformed, clean and luxurious black shine.
Along with the estimate we will give you a complete timeline. Being a local contractor you can rest assured that we will be in the area during the drying time, should any issue come up, we’ll come back that same day.
It’s not just the snow and ice that can cause damage to your blacktop area. The summer sun beating down on the blacktop, besides feeling hot on your feet, causes the tar to weaken the chemical bonding of the blacktop which can cause cracks.
Also, if you don’t have the proper border the blacktop might simply bleed out of the edges. Now this isn’t going to happen with just a few days of hot summer days, but over time it can pull the edges, causing cracks or damage. Let us take a look at your entire driveway, we can help you consider installing a border that will not only look good but will also help your blacktop stay in place.
Snow and Ice
Snow and Ice, as you can imagine, are the biggest culprits of damage to your driveway. Now don’t beat yourself up if you put salt down. Don’t blame yourself if you just brushed the snow off your car, throwing a pile on the back of the driveway where that hole seems to be forming… It’s not your fault it’s Mother Nature’s. Well, what we mean is, that snow and ice is always going to be a factor in area of the North East… although there is that Global Warming and climate change argument… but that’s not your fault either ;-) Basically the elements and environment in New York, and especially on Long Island, present a situation where once in a while, you’ll have an issue with your blacktop. Routine maintenance and proper care of your driveway will keep it looking fresh as the day it was first installed. Again, it’s not your fault! Put down the salt and put the snow at the back of the driveway (not in your neighbor’s yard)… and then call us and we’ll make it like new again come Spring.
You Need A Clean Area
Over the years we’ve seen some, well quite frankly, bad, bad, bad! repairs done by our so-called competitors. Think about it, the asphalt sealant needs to adhere to the area and dry smoothly. If the area isn’t properly cleared of debris, such as leaves, dirt, dust, sand or road salt, the material will not stick properly to the blacktop. We’ve seen quick fix jobs with leaves simply painted over. We pride ourselves on making sure every project is done to perfection.
We take our time to make sure the area is prepped and ready for the blacktop insulation, a very important step. For example we do a process called, “grubbing” which is before fresh asphalt pavement can be applied, this process removes any roots that are left in the soil. The roots can interfere with pavement. This process requires heavy machinery and will be professionally complete by our experts but it is an important step in the process. Just putting blacktop over untreated areas will result in poor quality results… We want the best for you and your project. After all, we are your neighbors, here at GLEN COVE PAVING we believe in hometown service and making sure every project, big small or in-between is done right. When we see you in North Shore Farms or Stop-and-Shop we want you to give us a smile and remember the great job we did for you and your family.
Doing the Job Right
If you have us seal, repave and rehabilitate your driveway (which we hope you choose us) we’ll make sure the process goes smoothly. This includes making sure that the cracks are properly sealed with the correct sealcoating and most importantly cured. When working with concrete it is important to have the right concrete contractor. The sealant will have to take a few hours, or a few days, depending on the depth to dry. See “Driveway Curing Timeframe” under our question and answers section (FAQ).
