A properly designed and skillfully installed asphalt driveway is the finishing touch to a beautiful home. The rich black color of new asphalt takes the colors of the landscaping to a new level, leading the viewer’s eye to your home, and giving it tremendous curb appeal!
At Erickson Asphalt Services, “No two driveways are alike!” And we approach each one as if it were the most important project we have ever been involved with. We believe your driveway should compliment your entrance, while at the same time taking into account the drainage of your property and the type of soil it will rest on.
In addition, Minnesota weather is about extremes, with our temperatures varying 120 to 130 degrees from the heat of summer to the cold of winter. A temperature variance like that requires an asphalt mixture and installation techniques that we, at Erickson Asphalt Services, have perfected in our vast experience. This guarantees you a driveway that both looks good and provides the rugged durability it needs to survive our climate and serve you for years to come.
But not every driveway needs to be a new driveway! In many cases we have saved property owners thousands of dollars by patching and repairing an already existing driveway. Whether your driveway needs to repaired or replaced is a decision we will help you make through professional examination and evaluation. Our goal is to offer you the most cost effective way to meet your needs and desires. Whichever way you choose to proceed, we will see that your asphalt driveway is completed on time, with a minimal amount of inconvenience and always within your budget!

Gravel provides an excellent and durable driveway surface. While they are not as popular as asphalt driveways, gravel driveways do have their place and their advantages.
Gravel is not the most elegant of driveway surfaces, but it is the cheapest. And if you are trying to stay within a budget, gravel is a very viable and practical option.
Due to their cost effectiveness, gravel driveways are an excellent option in rural areas, where driveways can be exceptionally long, or in residential neighborhood where a strict home improvement budget may allow few other options. Another nice feature of a gravel driveway is that it can always be paved over at a later date.
Gravel driveways also have a lower installation cost and they are much easier to maintain, since you never have to worry about cracking and surface heaving. But make no mistake about it, gravel driveways require thoughtful planning and professional installation and preparation of the road bed to ensure that they drain water efficiently and don’t just turn into a soupy mess early in the spring or after a heavy rain. Also be mindful of the fact that we live in Minnesota where snow is inevitable and gravel is not the simplest surface for snow removal.

Erickson Asphalt Services is the industry leader in paving and asphalt work. We attained this coveted position by using the finest materials available, state of the art equipment, the most up to date techniques, and employing only highly skilled professionals. But even with all of these assets, your asphalt parking lot or driveway will still breakdown and eventually deteriorate – especially here in Minnesota where ice, snow and temperature variance is brutal on asphalt!
Even though we provide the longest and best warranty in the industry your asphalt parking lot or driveway will still develop potholes and cracks that need to patched or filled. Frost heaves and expansion/contraction of the ground are the biggest culprits for cracking. And if there happens to be any type of electrical line or plumbing beneath the surface, cracking is unavoidable.
Asphalt crack filling and asphalt patching, when done properly, will extend the life of an asphalt driveway or asphalt parking for many, many years. Asphalt crack filling and patching is truly an art, and Erickson Asphalt Services has the artists to do your job right. But the most important part is addressing the problem early, when the cracks and potholes are just beginning to present themselves.
At that point our premium crack filler can fill the crack with a rubberized formula that allows some expansion room for the ground to do what it normally does, and leave you with a clean unbroken surface. If you are concerned about crack or potholes please contact us immediately! We would be more than happy to come out, assess the problem and provide you with a free estimate for filling or patching.
