Company agrees to repair driveway, says Colorado weather tough on asphalt

DENVER -- Johan Stokvis takes pride in his yard, but when he installed an asphalt driveway four years ago, he didn't imagine it would end up with cracks and holes, especially after paying $6,000 for it.

“We had to cut (a portion) out and  fill it in because it was a trip hazard at night,” he said.

Stokvis said the contract called for 4 inches of asphalt but it is thinner now and he said the problems began while the driveway was still under warranty.

The FOX31 Problem Solvers talked to the contractor and learned weather conditions and weight from large vehicles can compress asphalt over time.

Still, the company agreed to repair Stokvis’ driveway.
