Redesigning an entry

We recently assisted the Carina Leagues Club with some access issues to the entry of the Club. We removed the garden beds that were preventing access for larger display items, and then laid asphalt and road base to cover and provide a seamless surface. Safety was an issue on this job, as you can see we blocked off our work zone to prevent anyone from being injured during the works.

Broken pipes under driveway

Do you have an acreage driveway or driveway entrance with broken pipes underneath?

We can remove and replace the old pipe with a new pipe, or we can remove the pipe altogether. We can also form a new dish drain and re-asphalt the area to get your driveway back into good condition.  Contact us for help with broken pipes under your driveway.   27 Jun 2014

Different sizes in asphalt

With there being so many different sizes of stones to make asphalt, we determine the size needed for your job to get the best result. If we are doing overlays/potholes or speed humps we use a fine 5mm asphalt that leaves a minimal edge thus reducing any trip hazards. If we are doing digouts or laying asphalt up to 50 mm deep we use a 10 mm asphalt. For jobs over 50mm deep we use a 14 mm asphalt which gives extra strength and durability. In some cases if there is plans for the job the size asphalt will be determined by the engineer.  Contact us now to get the right asphalt for your job.

Dealing with oil and diesel spills

Oil, diesel and petrol spills on asphalt are something that needs to be taken care of straight away.

  1. First of all use kitty litter or sand and put over the area.
  2. Leave it on the soiled area for as long as possible then clean up and dispose of correctly.
  3. Then call Budget Asphalt to fix the area.

We will need to saw cut, remove and replace the asphalt where the spill has occurred. This is important. If the area is not repaired in this manner the spilt product will eat the asphalt and soften the area.
