Congratulations! You're the owner of a beautiful, new asphalt driveway. It's an investment that, if properly taken care of, can last 25 years or longer and add value to your property. Like any other paving, maintaining your driveway is an important factor in how long it will last and how well it will stand the test of time. Due to the unique physical properties of asphalt, there are many things you can do to ensure that you get the most out of your beautiful new driveway.
These tips are great for maintaining the appearance of your asphalt driveway in the first year, but within the first three years (and every three years after that), most experts suggest applying a seal coat. A seal coat will lock in the asphalt's natural oils, which help it expand and contract and keep it a dark, beautiful black. If you do end up having a problem with your driveway, make sure to contact a company like Asphalt Maintenance to make repairs quickly before the problems get large.Share

When I decided to turn my backyard into a pool and spa space, I wanted to have a pool house built. Adding a pool house would give me somewhere for everyone to shower and change without tracking pool water and dirt into the main house. I worked with a local contractor to construct a pool house with an outdoor kitchen, outdoor showers, and full indoor restroom facilities as well as a game room and changing rooms. I created this site to journal the process so that I could hopefully inspire others to do the same. I hope this site takes some of the mystery out of the construction process for you so you can build the backyard structure you've always wanted.
