Frequently Asked Questions

What time of year can my new driveway or parking lot be installed?

In Wisconsin, weather plays a big role in the asphalt industry. The typical paving season starts in May when the temperatures are steadily above freezing and ends in November when the cold weather moves in to stay.

How much will a new driveway cost?

In the Madison area, most driveways/parking lots cost between $1.50 & $3.50 a square foot. DRS can provide you a detailed estimate on your specific project free of charge.

How long will a asphalt driveway last?

The typical asphalt driveway can last up to 20 years. An important factor in the longevity of a blacktop driveway is the stability of the base and the quality of the asphalt mix.

Is every company’s asphalt mix the same?

Yes and No. The basic components of asphalt are the same but it's the subtle differences that make one better than the other. DRS offers a patented rubberized asphalt mix that is produced at their own manufacturing plant where smaller quantities are made to ensure a higher quality mix is produced just for your project.

How long will it take to install a new driveway?

The typical driveway requires 2 days of on-site work. The first day is for preparation (removal, grading, etc.) and the second day is when the hot asphalt would be paved. The whole process could take a couple of days, up to a few weeks; depending on schedules, weather and/or other factors.

When can my driveway be driven on after construction starts?

Once the prep work is complete, most drives will allow for light automobile traffic until paving starts. After paving is complete, it is recommended to keep all car traffic off of the new asphalt for at least 3 days and even longer during warmer temperatures.

We also offer driveway and parking lot asphalt repairs and snow removal services.
