Gravel Driveway Installation & Maintenance Twin Cities

Gravel driveways offer a low-maintenance, low-cost alternative to paved driveways. If you live in rural Minnesota, installing pavement on a long road or driveway can become costly and time-consuming. Gravel offers a perfect solution. However, you will still need to maintain it to keep it looking fresh and functioning well. Gravel can loosen and shift over time, especially with exposure to the elements and heavy use.

At J&W Asphalt, we can help you make the most out of your gravel driveway, keeping it looking great for many years to come.

An Affordable Option

Gravel Driveways are Affordable

If your home requires a long driveway to connect to a major roadway, installing a paved road is not always the best solution. The longer a road is, the more likely it is to need regular repairs, which can become quite costly with a paved option.

Gravel is easy to spread and can be easily installed no matter the size of your property. We offer Class V gravel. This is crushed asphalt with a maximum-sized rock of 1-inch with a lime rock base or recycled asphalt (RAP) base mixed with gravel.

Maintaining a gravel driveway is important to extend its lifespan. Weather and use can take a toll on a gravel driveway. Over time, the gravel can spread and thin out. When snow plows are used, gravel can become scattered away from the main driveway, leading to increased problems. Plants and weeds can also grow through the gravel with the passing of time if your gravel is not properly maintained. We can deliver Class V gravel to make your surface look good as new again.

A gravel driveway will need to be maintained after:

  • Quick driving
  • Frequent driving
  • Frequent use
Gravel Re-Grading

Re-Grade and Roll

More significant problems to your gravel can occur over time. Minnesota’s harsh winters mean damage from snow and snow plows. Water and drainage problems can lead to rutting and potholes.

Even if you are meticulous about driveway care, potholes and ruts are bound to come up. These can cause damage to vehicles and pose a serious liability on your property. Our gravel driveway repair includes re-grade and roll services.
