We understand our customers often research to find more information on Chip Seal so here is a collection of more information
Below are examples of the type of work we do not do.
It looks similar but the jobs are different.

Wide open places like this just are not something we ever find in our work area. We show this as a comparison to how the technology is similar but not something that would work here is the types of projects we do. We have harder aggregate available here in New England. Questions on the difference give us a call.

This collection of videos are here on this page to show you some examples of applications of the chip seal process and how it can be used in other areas. The difference is most of these applications are on roads that are not on paved surfaces. These are applications for low volume situations as an alternative to full thickness paving. We are doing chip seal on pavement that is sound and full thickness for the traffic that is in the area. This is an important distinction in what we do and how quality chip seal projects are installed here in New England. For a comparison to how we use this process a detailed description in on our chip seal driveway page that goes over the process step by step.
