Excavation Services for New or Renovated Driveways

There is little difference in the process of installing a new driveway or replacing an existing one. The first steps involve clearing the site and examining the underlying surface. An experienced driveway excavating contractor understands that the integrity of the underlying ground greatly impacts the driveway surface. Geiler Excavating is a fully-insured, reliable excavation contractor that provides comprehensive driveway excavating services throughout New Jersey.

Driveway excavating services for a new driveway installation by Geiler Excavating begin with clearing the site of debris and smoothing out the underlying surface.

New Driveway Installation

Driveway installation is a multi-step process that begins with excavating the site to remove large rocks and other materials that could impact the driveway surface. Once the site is cleared, the ground is examined and all voids are filled in preparation for the base layer. This base layer is spread out evenly along the length and width of the driveway and compressed to the proper thickness determined by the type of underlying soil. Next, the proper pitch is created to avoid future drainage issues. Finally, the area is ready for installation of the driveway material of choice – concrete, asphalt, stone.

The right driveway can contribute greatly to your home’s curb appeal. It’s important that your driveway can stand up to the weather elements and daily vehicular use. Each of the above steps requires precision and expertise to accomplish this.

Driveway excavating services by Geiler Excavating include periodic resurfacing to bring your stone driveway back to its original condition.

Stone Driveway Restoration

Stone and gravel driveways offer some advantages over other materials like concrete and asphalt. Other advantages include affordability, low maintenance and durability.

While stone driveways have a relatively long lifespan, over time materials wash away and subside, requiring periodic resurfacing. Restoring or resurfacing your stone driveway requires the same attention to base layer and pitch that installation of a new driveway requires. An experienced driveway excavation contractor will ensure the integrity of your restored stone driveway.

Geiler Excavating applies the same stone driveway  installation process to the construction of a new stone parking lot.

Stone Parking Lot Construction

Stone and gravel parking lots can be more economical in terms of both installation and maintenance than their asphalt or concrete alternatives.

As part of its stone parking lot installation services, Geiler Excavating prepares the site by removing debris and filling the voids to remove ruts and bumps. We make sure the pitch of the parking lot area is sufficient to direct water away from adjacent buildings and address any other drainage issues you may have before laying and smoothing out the final top layer of stone or gravel.

Stone parking lots are relatively low maintenance. A periodic resurfacing can repair the wear and tear caused by weather, daily use and gravity. Aesthetically, a stone parking lot will blend well with most landscaping and, if properly maintained, can last for many years to come.
