Six Facts About Asphalt Paving

ASPHALT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR LONGER THAN YOU THINK!

You might think that asphalt has only been around since the industrial revolution, but it has been known and used since 615 BC.

IT IS ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

Did you know that asphalt can actually be recycled? Because it can be, and it saves money all round when this happens.

Recycled asphalt is also just as durable as newly created asphalt is.

ASPHALT IS HARD WEARING

Asphalt driveways are the most durable that you can hope for. Why else is asphalt used on roads and paving?

With a potential life expectancy of thirty-five years, with the correct maintenance, asphalt is the number one hard wearing choice for your domestic project, or for your business.

Yes, you will have to maintain it, but that is something that is unavoidable.

With the right care and looking after, you can keep your parking lot in tip top condition for many years.

Don’t forget to seal coat soon after it has been laid and to ensure this important job is done before the temperatures begin to drop.

Sealcoating should really be done in the springtime, for optimal effects.

This puts it ahead of the heat and damage of the summer sun and well before the ice and snow begins to hit!

However, you may still seal coat effectively through to the early fall if necessary.

ASPHALT IS COST EFFECTIVE

Whether as a home owner, or a business owner, you will be looking for value for money from your parking lot or driveway.

You want to choose something that is going to last – and with its lifespan, asphalt makes the best choice.

The cost of asphalting your parking lot or driveway comes in at around $2 and $5 per square foot. This is a pretty reasonable price to pay for a quality product.

BUT BEWARE DEALS THAT ARE TOO CHEAP

If someone offers you a deal which is significantly cheaper than the others and lower than our guide price of $2-$5 per square foot, then beware.

Excessively cheap asphalting companies should be investigated carefully. There is a good chance these will not be professionals and will not do a good job of installing your new driveway.

ASPHALT IS THE POPULAR CHOICE

At least ninety percent of commercial and business premises choose asphalt as the material of choice for their parking lot.

This is because it is hard wearing, durable and long lasting.

It can also be repaired swiftly when it begins to get damaged.
