Chip Seal

Enjoy a Natural Rustic Look
That’s a Less Expensive Alternative to Asphalt

galleryNot every setting calls for asphalt and not every budget has room for it. Chip seal is a high-quality alternative to asphalt that offers an exceptional surface with a natural, earthy appeal.

Chip Seal Process

At Pimentel Paving Inc. we make sure your job is done right,  meeting our high quality standards:

  • Holes are filled
  • Weeds are removed
  • Surfaces are leveled
  • Drainage is improved (whenever possible)
  • Oil is spread over the area to be paved
  • A layer of 3/8” rock-size chip is added to the wet oil surface
  • A roller compacts the rock into the oil
