The McFarlane family has a history of servicing the Bergen/Passaic area. Getting a new driveway costs thousands of dollars, but Rich and his crew are ready to restore the driveway you have as an economical alternative with the latest Asphalt recyRich McFarlane cling and infrared equipment available. They are a Blacktop Company that has gone GREEN! McFarlane Driveway Restoration fills potholes with hot asphalt – not cold fill that rapidly decays. The hot asphalt is then melted along the edges, forming a direct seal with the driveway. Best yet – your driveway will be ready for traffic within 24 hours. It seems Rich was destined to get into the family business. His parents drove him home from the hospital – his very first ride -- in a paving truck, a safe choice for the newborn given the blizzard conditions that day. As he grew up, Rich heard potential customers asking if the company repaired potholes, which it did not at the time. Rich decided this area would be a great niche for him, and his success in this specialty area followed. Ask Rich and his team how they can help you extend the life of your current driveway. His company also applies seal coat to help protect driveways against deterioration. Rich recommends resealing the driveway at least every two years to replenish asphalt, which can become aged and weathered. Restore yours today! They have kept their 2008 prices and are honoring 2008 estimates too. No job is too small. McFarlane Driveway Restoration is a member of the Mahwah Regional Chamber of Commerce.
