Your driveway is one of the first things that you see every morning and every evening, and it is the first thing that guests see as they enter your home. Wolford Contracting Company makes your driveway beautiful and functional with asphalt driveway paving, resurfacing and sealing in Columbus, GA.

Whether you have already paved your driveway and you want to repair its original, polished look or you are paving your driveway for the first time, our team is happy to assist you. No asphalt paving project is too big or small for our family owned business.
Paved driveways make it easier to get in and out of your home and they also provide a gentler surface on your tires. Asphalt retains its smooth surface during harsh weather and the black color absorbs heat, minimizing the accumulation of ice in the winter. Asphalt driveways can also be used for basketball practice, roller-skating, bicycling and more, as the smooth, finished surface makes it easy for kids to play safely. You can expand your existing driveway for more room or you can change the grade to make it safer for playing and for your vehicles.
Wolford Contracting’s experts look at each area carefully and determine the appropriate grade for each space. This way you will not have blind spots when entering or leaving the driveway and your car will not be damaged by steep inclines. Proper grading sets the stage for a long-lasting driveway and we make sure to make a solid surface before ever laying down pavement. With rocks, roots, holes and other obstructions out of the way, we smooth out a solid surface underneath to make sure your asphalt has a steady foundation.
All paving surfaces show damage over time. Ground shifts, ice, gas, oil, sand and dirt wears down surfaces. Asphalt, however, is more flexible than concrete and will typically last longer. Asphalt resists cracks and shifting thanks to its added flexibility. Concrete will also flake over time and will show stains from oil drips or other chemicals. Asphalt remains solid and will not show stains as much. Asphalt also sets and cures faster than concrete, usually allowing you to use it in half the time that it would take concrete to set. Just like concrete, asphalt can be manipulated into virtually any shape, whether you are looking for a large square that can also be used as a basketball court, a long rectangle to align with your garage, or a crescent shape that you can enter and exist through without having to back in or out. We will work with your space and any existing buildings or landscaping, installing your pavement so it aligns with your garage and expanding or reducing any existing paved areas. We provide all measuring and grading services beforehand, to make sure the foundation is laid properly and your driveway will provide years of stability.
As harsh weather and use begins to show on your asphalt, small cracks and other imperfections will begin to appear. We provide repairs for small cracks, increasing the longevity of your driveway and maintaining its original beauty. If you already have an asphalt driveway that is showing large cracks, holes or other problems, we will resurface your existing asphalt. Finally, sealcoating your asphalt will protect the surface from weathering and reduce the occurrence of imperfections. Wolford Contracting Company provides a full list of residential asphalt services, including grading and setting new areas, repairing small cracks, resurfacing damaged areas and sealcoating new pavement to lock in its smooth look.
