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:
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.
Pea 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” pea stone 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.
