The finished pavement once installed should have a minimum slope of 1.5" inch for every 10 feet. This is equivalent to a 15 inch fall for every 100 feet of driveway. At completion of the installation, the drainage must be away from buildings and water must not be allowed to rest on edges of the pavement.
Once the base and grade have been established and has met all requirements, the installation of the hot mix asphalt begins. Driveways require a MINIMUM of ONE LIFT of compacted hot surface mix asphalt at a thickness of 2" inches. While this will provide an acceptable driveway construction, Pav Tech highly recommends a 3" installation for all residential applications. This installation is achieved by installing one lift 1.5" inch hot binder mix rolled and compacted and 1.5" inch hot surface mix asphalt rolled and compacted to a achieve total thickness of 3" inches after rolling and compacting.
