When it comes to asphalt and paving maintenance, it pays to be proactive like this client was. With the onset of winter and cold weather looming, freeze and thaw cycles become more frequent, causing deterioration to already damaged entrances, driveways and parking areas, etc. This recently completed project at the New Milford Rifle and Gun Shooting Range is an example of our asphalt paving services for commercial clientele. Working within the constraints of their business being open, we repaved the asphalt with minimal effect on their customer flow.

The forthcoming cold season is extremely hard on asphalt. During the warmer seasons of spring through fall asphalt is flexible, which helps to prevent cracks and potholes from forming. As the temperatures begin to cool, so does asphalt which causes it to become harder and stronger, but the downside is it also causes it to become more brittle. By being more brittle asphalt is susceptible to cracking. However the most damage occurs during the freeze-thaw cycles that asphalt pavements are subjected to.

A freeze-thaw cycle occurs whenever the temperature goes from above freezing (32 F), to below freezing, and then back again. This is considered one freeze-thaw cycle, and Northern New Jersey undergoes a couple of these each year. At an above freezing temperature the rainwater and runoff from melting snow will find it way into the smallest of cracks. Then when the temperature goes below 32 degrees this water begins to freeze and expand, thereby exerting enough pressure to crack the surrounding asphalt and grow. When water freezes it expands about ten percent and can exert up to 30,000 psi as it does so. Then along comes some warmer above freezing temperatures and the cycle begins all over again.

Then there is the damage to the sub-grade to consider. Water beneath the asphalt is meant to be drained away, but during the cold season it can freeze with this sub-grade. The result can be frost heave which happens when water freezes and expands in larger chunks and forces the asphalt above upward. Again when the temperatures climb these chunks of ice start to melt, thereby weakening the base layer and creating a void where they once were. Asphalt traffic from above then compresses these areas and potholes can quickly appear.

What Our Clientele Say

This is where the pros go go buy product. Compared to the big orange store, Kurpiel sells the professional products that are much better quality at a lower price. And Cassie and Jim are there to walk you through every step of your job and answer questions all the time. Its like night and day. If you want the best products at the best price as well as professional advice you would be lucky to buy here. It really is the secret of the pros. They helped me to choose the best products and save a driveway that truly needed at the least a $7000 overlay if not a complete redo. I spent a few hundred dollar in products and a few days in labor, probably twice over. But I truly saved the driveway and they helped me find the best pro to seal it since they are mostly commercial now.

First of all as a HOA board we are required to get multiple bids for our paving project. Of all the owners who came to give us an estimate and proposal…Jim Kurpiel was by far the nicest and most knowledgeable . His estimate was in the ballpark monetarily but offered far more than the others. All his workers were excellent and courteous.. Jim was on the job overseeing everything every day. A complete pleasure to work with and an excellent job well done. We would give him a big “10” in all areas.

This summer, I used Kurpiel paving to rip out my driveway and pour a new one. They did an excellent job from start to finish. Yesterday, I had an issue with a neighbor regarding my driveway. Nothing Kurpiel did wrong but I emailed Jim for some advice. He responded within a few hours and despite his busy schedule, he personally stopped by my house this morning to take a look. Although there was nothing wrong with the work they did, Jim resolved the issue for me free of charge. He went above and beyond to help me out. I highly recommend Kurpiel Paving. This is my first time posting a google review. Because of Jim’s kindness today I want to show my appreciation and share my positive experience with Jim’s company.

Jim runs his business in a manner that makes customer satisfaction a top priority. His crew performed a driveway resurface in which my old pavement was dug up and removed, and new pavement was laid. He requested that we let the gravel sit for a couple weeks prior to setting the new surface so he could observe how the subbase settled. I spoke to other pros who said that not all contractors take the time to do this, but James and his crew were doing the job the “right way” so my driveway would last. His men were always on time, respectful of my property, and left the site clean both times. Jim is a personable and professional gentleman, and I would absolutely recommend this business to others. BTW- the finished project was top notch. Couldn’t be happier.

Excellent job and very professional crew. I would definitely use them again on my future projects.

James Kurpiel Inc. did an excellent job on my driveway! They were prompt, easy to get in touch with and great to work with. Highly recommend!

These guys do great work! Professional, clean, and courteous!

This company was a true pleasure to work with. Do not hesitate to call them! They did an AMAZING job! Thanks again!

Jim and his team did a fantastic job. Great design, professional on time and great value.

Kurpiel and their associates were professional and fair. The work they did on our driveway had my neighbors, some from blocks away, asking for their info. Clean, efficient, reasonable and perfectly done. Highly recommended.

Jim and his crew are friendly, professional, honest, and reliable. From the estimate to driveway completion, the process was absolutely seamless! The driveway looks great and they left our property clean which was respectful. We appreciated how Jim and Casey were in frequent communication with us about scheduling, logistics and any questions. If only this company could do all our home repairs and renovations!

This is the best contractor we have ever dealt with. We got many estimates and he was also the best price which is a plus! He tore out our old black top driveway regraded and put in a beautiful new driveway complete with Belgian block border abd border for our landscaping. The project had many bumps, due to no fault of theirs bc we were having other work done and kept having problems which needed to push the driveway repaving back months! At the end, he had to repair and regrade some of the gravel bc it was laid at the beginning of the project but he did it with no extra charge!- crazy right! The driveway looks perfect! He came when he said he would, was always professional and we highly recommend his services!!! He also got the permits and closed the permits. Easy peasy!

Very professional organization. Completely repaved my driveway, and it looks great!

Pleasure to deal with. Exceptional work.
