How long does a new paved driveway or parking lot last in New Hampshire?
Typically, a newly paved driveway or parking lot should last 15 to 20 years in New Hampshire. Proper care is key to getting the most life out of your driveway, which includes periodic sealcoating and maintenance.
How often should I sealcoat my driveway or parking lot?
It is best to sealcoat your driveway or parking lot around 1 to 2 years after initial paving and then reseal every 2 to 3 years after that. If you aren’t sure if your driveway or parking lot would benefit from a sealcoating, give us a call and we’d be happy to come out and assess your situation. We also offer crack repair services which can help maintain the integrity of your surface.
Do I need to tear up my old driveway?
This depends on the condition of the existing driveway. Sometimes, resurfacing your existing driveway with new pavement is a great alternative to completely rebuilding your driveway. Other times, due to the existing conditions, it would be more cost effective in the long run to rebuild your driveway to avoid building on top of a poor foundation. If you aren’t sure what the best option is for you, we’re glad to come check out your specific situation and let you know what your options are and what we recommend, so that you can make the most informed decision.

How should I care for my new driveway?
After we finish your new driveway, you’ll want to avoid driving on the new pavement for at least 4-5 days. In hotter weather, the longer you can wait for the asphalt to harden, the better. In reality, it takes almost 24 months for your driveway to completely harden but it is safe to drive and park on after the first week. Please note, we highly recommend avoiding turning your car wheels on your new pavement. This can leave tire marks in your new asphalt. It will not damage the integrity of the driveway, but aesthetically is will leave marks on the surface. If you accidentally create these marks on your driveway, fixing these is NOT a part of your warranty. You can avoid making these marks by ensuring that you do not turn the wheel while your vehicle isn’t moving.
Are you the same company as Young’s Paving who walked around my neighborhood?
No, we are not the same company. My name is Bill Young and I am the owner of Young’s Excavating and Paving LLC out of Chichester, NH. My father and brothers, who I used to work with, own a company known as “Young’s Paving” and they can often be seen soliciting business through door to door sales in neighborhoods across southern NH. If you encountered this other company, please note that we are not the same company and run an entirely separate business.
Our family has successfully been providing a full range of surface coating and excavation services throughout the New England area for over four generations. We currently offer both residential and commercial paving and excavation services in the state of New Hampshire.
