Paving over an Existing Asphalt Driveway

Paving over an Existing Driveway is Possible Under Certain Conditions

By Mark J. Donovan

Asphalt paving over an existing driveway can be done if the existing driveway is in good shape. It should be level, and free from any bulges or trenches.

If the existing asphalt paved driveway is crumbling and heaving, or if there are signs of root damage, then the old driveway should be ripped up so the base can be re-constructed.

Tree roots and any rocks that have worked their way to the surface should be removed before paving over an existing asphalt driveway. Additional gravel should then be brought in and packed and rolled prior to paving over an existing asphalt driveway.
