The technical name for our specialty is "Bituminous Surface Treatment" (or BST for short). It is such a durable and economical pavement that BST is used on hundreds of miles of the Alaska Highway and other similar roadways in Alaska, the Yukon Territory, and northern British Columbia. Ease of application is one reason for BST's popularity, along with flexibility, attractive appearance, durability, ease of maintenance and extremely competitive price.

BST is also used as a sealing coat to rejuvenate asphalt or concrete pavement. It generally consists of aggregate spread over a sprayed-on asphalt emulsion. The aggregate is embedded into the asphalt by rolling it, typically with a rubber-tired roller. BSTs are described by a wide variety of regional terms including "chip seal"... "chip and seal"... "tar and chip"... "seal coat"... "shoot & chip"... "tar and chip seal"... "sprayed seal" and others. Whatever name you use, you'll call it "great" after you have your own!

In Michigan, Chip Seal or Tar & Chip are the most common names used for this durable and beautiful paving technique. Either way, Ace Asphalt & Paving will make your driveway practical, durable & beautiful for much lower cost than you'd expect for such a superior pavement.

One highly desirable attribute of Chip Sealing is the ability to choose the color of your driveway simply by selecting the color of the stone that is used. This allows you to easily choose a driveway color that complements the colors of your house and landscaping.
