Grading

Probably the most important aspect of any asphalt driveway is its grade. If the grading is not done properly you are most likely to have a water problem. You may have water going into the garage, standing water near your house, or puddles in your driveway, even ponds on your lawn. If your driveway has any kind of water problem, then most likely poor pitch or grading was the key factor. Driveways need to be pitched away from the house and when possible down towards the street. It is always best to pitch the driveway in more than one direction when possible.
