Cooper Paving offers professional driveway grading services in the Annapolis, MD area. The purpose of driveway grading is to make sure the ground is sloped away from the house and garage so that any rainfall will run away from your foundation.
If water is able to drain and pool around your foundation, this could result in many issues including foundation damage, leaks, or mold under your home. Proper grading will also create a safe and stable surface to drive your vehicle on. If rainwater and runoff are able to pool up on your driveway, this could create a slick, unsafe driving surface and will eventually damage your drive.

You might notice throughout the years that your gravel driveway will become bumpy or uneven. With regular use, this is very normal and unavoidable. This is why grading is an important part of the maintenance process for gravel and stone driveways.
Over time, loose gravel can cause portions of the driveway to settle, resulting in unwanted pot holes and ruts. Grading can maximize the longevity of your gravel driveway and help cut down on long term repair and maintenance costs.
One of the most important parts of new construction is grading for the lot. Most driveways will connect with public sidewalks and roadways. It’s imperative that driveways have the correct slop so that water drains safely and doesn’t put motorists at risk. The degree of the slope is dependent on the location of the property.
A general rule is there should be no more than four inches of water that pools on the surface of your driveway fifteen minutes after it rains. The professionals at Cooper Paving in the Annapolis, MD area are able to figure out the correct degree of the slope. It has to be able to drain water but cannot be so steep that it’s difficult to drive on.
There will typically be a minimum and maximum range we will adhere to based on where you live. We will direct the flow of water towards the nearest sewer for proper drainage. Any type of new driveway will require proper grading to ensure water flows away from the home and does not pool. Both can create lots of damage to your house and property.
