Stone or Gravel Driveways in Annapolis
A stone and gravel driveway is more cost effective. This is a major benefit if you need a fairly large or long driveway. It can be the perfect solution for your driveway or parking area if drainage is an issue.
Gravel driveways are also environmentally friendly, allowing rain and snow to be absorbed naturally into the ground.
Aesthetically pleasing, a new gravel driveway will boost your homes’ presence and value. If properly maintained, a gravel driveway can last a lifetime and can accommodate all types of vehicles.

Asphalt Driveways in Anne Arundel County
An asphalt driveway can be an investment in your home, providing a smooth surface and curb appeal. This is one of the more traditional options for residential driveway paving.
Asphalt driveways should be periodically sealed and repaired when cracks appear. A properly maintained asphalt driveway can last for decades. We recommend seal coating for all asphalt driveways to increase the lifespan of the pavement.

Driveway Pavers Installation
A driveway constructed of pavers offers maximum curb appeal to any home. It truly is one of the best home investments you can make. They are relatively low maintenance compared to asphalt and gravel.
We guarantee your paver driveway will not crack or settle when installed by Cooper Paving. The greatest benefit to choosing a paver driveway is the unlimited amount of options.
No matter what look or color you are looking for, there is paver for it. You have the option to combine colors, textures, and lay them in many different patterns.
There is no other driveway option that can be customized to match your home. In addition to using pavers for your driveway, we can also construct your walkway, porch, or patio to match.
Tar & Chip Driveway Installation
Professional tar and chip driveway installation is a great way to improve the look of your home or business. This type of installation process involves the application of a hot asphalt mix to the existing surface and then covering it with chips of stone.
The result is an attractive and durable driveway that can last for many years.
Our team can quickly and effectively install a tar and chip driveway, making it an ideal choice for those who want to improve their property’s appearance without spending too much time or money. To learn more about tar and chip installation, see Tar & Chip.
Professional Driveway Grading Services
Professional driveway grading services can be a great way to keep your driveway in top condition. Grading and leveling your driveway ensures that it is even and free of any bumps or dips which can cause damage to vehicles and make it difficult for people to walk on.
It also helps prevent water from pooling on the surface, reducing the risk of flooding and fast erosion.
Our team uses specialized equipment to ensure that we properly grade your driveway and eliminate any potential hazards. Our driveway grading services can help extend the life of your driveway while also improving its overall look and feel.
To learn more about our grading services, see Grading.
Seal Coating & Repair
Using a mixture of asphalt binder, stone chips, and recycled asphalt shingles, seal coating is one of the most cost-effective ways to protect your driveway or parking lot.
We usually apply seal coatings in a single coat over otherwise normal asphalt. After application, there will be a “wet feel” that may last up to 24 hours.
In case you’re wondering if seal coating your driveway is worth it… we’ve done numerous estimates for large commercial properties and we’ve found that seal coating saves thousands of dollars in otherwise avoidable damage.
