AsphaltEdge allows for the full and consistent material thickness right to the edge of the pavement. It is also designed to help prevent broken edges and provides a finished and maintainable edge of your asphalt driveway. AsphaltEdge by Permaloc is made of sturdy and durable aluminum and comes in an attractive silver color.

Why Use Asphalt Edging?

The edge is the weakest part of your driveway. The edge of most asphalt driveways are side tamped at a 45 degree angle to give it as much strength as possible. Permaloc AsphaltEdge is an asphalt edging product that strengthens the edge of your driveway. It strengthens the edge by providing “containment” when rolling compacting the driveway. Additionally, the product provides for a more uniform, straight edge, smoother curves and a more manicured look. Aluminum edging won’t rust, rot, or crack, and is ideal for Minnesota’s tough climate. The cost of this edging is based on the length of your driveway, and can be a bargain in the extension of the life of your new driveway.

Geotechnical Fabric Reinforcement

A relatively new option for driveway construction, Geotechnical fabric can be laid under your driveway’s sub-base and asphalt paving. This fabric helps stabilize the sub-base and makes your driveway more resistant to compaction by vehicles. This helps keep your driveway smooth and even over time. Made of polypropylene, it’s non-degradable, and resists decay. Properly installed, it can help to minimize cracking, sagging, and helps keep your driveway looking great longer. Your Richfield Blacktop driveway consultant can help you determine whether a Geotechnical fabric underlayment is an appropriate option for your driveway.
