I needed a driveway regraded, a retaining wall reconditioned, and my culvert cleaned and reset. I was fortunate to come across Bob Ames Excavating. I can’t say enough great things about Chris Ames and the company. Because I live out of state, I had to coordinate everything by phone. I had to trust Chris with regard to the work that needed to be done, the supplies needed, and the timeframe it needed to be done in. Chris was extraordinarily good at communicating with me every step of the way, by phone, text, and photos. Although the company was busy, he was able to fit me in to their schedule. Chris was on time, under budget, and honest. The work was top notch. Chris met all my expectations and more!
Whether you need to create a new driveway or fix an existing one, we have the experience needed to understand your country driveway needs.
Driveways are the most cost-effective driveways for country-living. However, over time, your gravel drive will inevitably develop potholes. Winter leaves all that pretty snow on your drive, but if you use a snow plow, you can expect your gravel driveway to be unrecognizable after the snow melts.
Water from snow melt and rain can wreak havoc anywhere, especially with gravel driveways. If you’re seeing consistent problems with ruts, washouts, and birm, your driveway probably has drainage issues. The solution is either to add enough gravel to make your drive higher than the areas surrounding it, or to install a ditch to pull the water away from the the gravel.
The reality is that any undulations will cause your vehicle to bounce down your driveway. Over time, this creates larger, deeper problem areas that will eventually be too big to ignore.
