Challenge Asphalt Paving
Driveway & Paving Company in Santa Barbara, CA
Was established by Dewayne Copus in 1961. He'd leave the house in his pickup truck with his trailer in tow, loaded with a couple of drums of seal coat searching for jobs to do. Dewayne's dream 48 years ago has now become our legacy as the leading paving firm in Santa Barbara County, as well as one of the top asphalt paving companies in the State. Our crew of 20, now led by Dewayne's oldest son, Mike Copus, and grandson Kurt Copus, has been with the family company for 30+ years.
Residential Asphalt Maintenance
read moreThere are many benefits of choosing asphalt for your home driveway, including increasing curb appeal and home value, providing a safe and clean traffic area, management of runoff water in unwanted landscape areas, durability and flexibility and ease of maintenance and affordability compared to other surface options. Typically, most issues associated with residential asphalt driveways are due to lack of appropriate maintenance. Timely asphalt maintenance, such as seal coating and crack or pothole repair, will help restore, weatherize and protect your driveway until a complete resurfacing is needed.

Our goal at Challenge Asphalt is to help protect and maintain that investment. Our team is often asked about asphalt maintenance of a new parking lot or roadway. What we tell our clients is when maintained, a well paved parking lot should last approximately twenty years. Within that time frame, you should plan for at least one complete resurfacing or overlay. Typical maintenance involves seal coating with Guard Top seal coat, which we broom on for thicker wearing surface, within the first year of installation and resealing every four years.

A residential driveway is built by first grading and compacting the sub soil to 95% relative density. Depending upon the traffic index, which is typically provided by a soils engineer, a road bed consisting of crushed rock and sand is laid, typically 4" - 6" thick. This material is fine graded, watered and rolled to a compacted density of 95%.
