Custom Driveway and Courtyard Contractor in MA and RI

Sherry Construction Corporation has been paving residential asphalt driveways in Rhode Island and south eastern MA since 1933.  With over 84 years of asphalt paving experience we know how to provide a quality installation that will last!

Our typical asphalt driveway installation consists of several steps that are completed over the course of two working days.  Once the homeowner approves our free quote we begin the process as follows:

  1. Contact Dig Safe to make sure all utilities are marked prior to excavation.
  2. Using a backhoe or excavator we excavate and dispose of your existing driveway and any unsuitable materials within the proposed driveway area.
  3. Installation of 4”-6” of recycled gravel.  This gravel will be the foundation of your driveway.
  4. Fine Grading and compaction of the gravel base.  Here we grade and compact the driveway base to shed rain water to the most appropriate location.
  5. Asphalt binder course paving.  We pave your driveway with one 1.5” thick course of ¾” asphalt binder.
  6. Asphalt top course.  We pave your driveway with once course of 1.5” thick ½” asphalt top course.
  7. Clean the construction area of all debris.

Sherry Construction Offers Several Alternative Driveway Options:

Concrete Driveway: Sherry Construction has been providing concrete driveways and walkways since 1933. A traditional concrete driveway consists of 4”-6” of poured 3500 psi ¾” concrete and is scored to prevent cracking and broom finished. Though they are more expensive to install, concrete driveway are extremely durable and will stand the test of time when properly installed.

Blue Stone Driveway: We pave the driveway with 1.5” of traditional asphalt binder then apply an asphalt adhesive to the entire driveway area. Once properly coated we install 1”-2” of 3/8” blue stone on top of the asphalt foundation.
Seashell Driveway: We pave the driveway with 1.5” of traditional asphalt binder then apply an asphalt adhesive to the entire driveway area. Once properly coated we install 1”-2” of seasoned seashells, sourced from New Bedford, MA, on top of the asphalt foundation.

We specialize in residential custom driveways and courtyards and have experience with all types of driveway materials.  The photo below is a custom chip and seal, also known as blue stone or bituminious surface treatments, driveway and courtyard that we recently completed in Barrington, Rhode Island. The entrance is cobblestone.  Chip and seal is a thin protective wearing surface that is applied to payment.  The benefits of chip and seal is it provides a waterproof layer to protect the payment below it, it provides increased skid resistance, it acts as a filler for exiting cracks, and is glare free.  Chip and seal reduces the amount of damage caused by the sun and inclement weather and helps to prevent freezing and thawing damage during harsh New England winters.

Sherry construction has 83 years of experience with custom driveways and we’re exceptionally skilled with materials that are commonly used as an alternative to asphalt and materials that are not so common.  Crushed stone, seashell, brick, stamped concrete and concrete are several examples.  We also specialize in tennis and basketball courts as well.  If you can dream it we can do it.  We’ll consult with you to find the best material for your home and we’ll advise you on the benefits and disadvantages of all materials used for custom driveways and courtyards.
