Residential Driveway Replacement and Removal Services

Choosing a reliable company to provide high-quality asphalt replacement and removal services is essential for maintaining a safe, functional driveway on your property. Driveways can develop cracks, potholes and uneven surfaces from various issues, including heavy use, severe weather, and typical wear and tear. In addition to affecting the appearance of your property, these issues pose safety risks for vehicles and pedestrians.


Professional removal and replacement services from CMI Paving ensure that your Central Pennsylvania driveway is properly repaired using high-quality materials and techniques, increasing its durability and aesthetic appeal. Partnering with us to address problems early on means you can prevent further damage and costly repairs in the future.

Asphalt Removal and Replacement in Central PA

CMI Paving offers high-quality driveway removal and replacement solutions to residential homeowners in Harrisburg, Hershey, Camp Hill, Mechanicsburg and the surrounding Central Pennsylvania communities. We’ll excavate your driveway completely so we can start from scratch with a new base for your driveway replacement. We’ll take care not to damage the areas surrounding your driveway. 


We’ll also factor in stormwater management. Asphalt is porous, which allows some water to filter through to the ground naturally. However, Pennsylvania often sees periods of heavy rain that can damage your driveway and leave standing water. We’ll make sure that your driveway has a gradual curve to prevent these issues.


In addition to excavation and replacement, we also install completely new asphalt driveways from the ground up.

Signs Your Asphalt Driveway Requires Removal and Replacement

An asphalt driveway can last for decades with proper care and maintenance. If you notice that you’re getting repairs done from your driveway damage more often than usual, you might want to consider driveway removal for a new installation. There are a few signs your property needs asphalt replacement, including:


  • Extensive cracking: Deep cracks that cover a large area of your driveway can indicate underlying issues like poor foundation or soil compaction. These problems are not fixable with simple patching and may compromise the structural integrity of your driveway. By removing the damaged driveway and replacing it with a new one, you can ensure a durable, long-lasting solution that addresses the cause of the cracking, preventing further damage and maintaining safety and appearance.
  • Potholes and uneven areas: Potholes indicate significant damage to the driveway surface, often caused by a weakened base. Attempting to patch up potholes without addressing the root cause may result in temporary fixes that fail to prevent the problem from resurfacing. Sunken areas can also suggest structural issues beneath the surface, such as soil erosion or improper installation, that are only fixable by replacing the driveway.
  • Drainage problems: Poor drainage can lead to water pooling, erosion underneath the driveway and structural damage over time. Simply patching the surface may not be enough to prevent recurring damage. Removing the old driveway and properly addressing the drainage problem during replacement is a better solution in the long term.

If you’re unsure of what level of attention your driveway removal project needs, our crew would be happy to assess its condition and help you decide whether you need a driveway repair or driveway replacement.

Benefits of Choosing CMI Paving for Removing and Replacing Your Asphalt Driveway

Opting for driveway removal and replacement from CMI Paving over attempting to spot-repair issues allows property owners to enjoy benefits like:


  • Structural stability: By completely removing the old driveway and replacing it with a new one, you can address underlying issues like poor foundation, drainage problems or extensive damage that may compromise structural integrity. This process ensures the new driveway is built on a solid foundation, reducing the risk of future problems such as cracks, potholes or uneven surfaces.
  • Lasting solutions: While basic repairs may provide a temporary fix, they often fail to address underlying issues, leading to more frequent repairs and expenses. When you opt for removal and replacement, you invest in a durable, long-term solution that can withstand wear and tear. You can save money in the long run by getting the job done right the first time. 
  • Aesthetics: A new driveway enhances the overall look of your property, increasing curb appeal and potentially raising the value of your home. Choosing removal and replacement over basic repairs can provide a fresh, uniform appearance that boosts the visual appeal of your property for decades.
"This is probably the best experience I've ever had with any kind of contractor/crew. They are professional, organized, efficient, polite, respectful. They showed up on time, never left my property a mess at the end of their work day like many others do. They work like a well-oiled machine together. I would absolutely refer anyone to this company. I wish they did some of the other stuff I need done around here so I know that it'll get done with zero hassles. Kudos to this crew!!!!"
