A Natural, Rustic Look

Not every pavement setting calls for asphalt. Chip seal is a high-quality alternative to asphalt that offers an exceptional surface with a natural, earthy appeal.

Chip Seal Process

Pimentel Paving makes sure your job is done right, using a process that meets 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

New Roads or Asphalt Repair

Chip sealing can be done as an affordable way to pave your large driveway, private road, or parking lot. Or it can be used as a treatment to extend the life of your existing asphalt pavement.

Easy on Your Budget

Not every budget has room for asphalt paving. Chip seal paving is very cost effective compared to asphalt. With a little maintenance, under normal circumstances, chip seal provides a visually appealing countryside look that lasts three to five years.

Customized Appearance

To create a custom, natural look you’d love to see on your property, the surface can be treated in different ways. It might be left with loose gravel or be swept for a smoother effect.

Chip seal comes in a variety of colors.
