Asphalt is a popular material preferred by homeowners for their driveways. It offers a durable as well as a cost-effective solution for paving. For the base layer, many companies now employ recycled asphalt. Because recycled asphalt is less expensive than fresh asphalt. Here are some reasons why asphalt is right for your driveway:
You don’t need to worry about compromising the aesthetic appeal of your property as asphalt gives a seamless finishing.
Asphalt is known to withstand harsh weather conditions and natural elements better than other materials and is less likely to get damaged easily.
This is one of the primary reasons why asphalt is a preferred choice among homeowners.
Asphalt is more flexible than concrete, making it less vulnerable to significant cracking.
Should I Opt for an Asphalt Overlay?
The term "asphalt overlay" refers to paving asphalt on top of existing asphalt. It is normally done after a comprehensive examination of your current asphalt pavement for any cracks, faults, or problem areas. If your pavement is in good condition, the top layer is removed for improved grip and a fresh layer of asphalt is laid on top. If your existing asphalt is in good shape but needs to be renewed, asphalt sealing may be the best option.
Which Is Better, a Cold Mix or a Hot Mix?
Cold mix asphalt is typically used in the off-season or for minor repairs. For the best results, we employ hot mix asphalt most of the time during the season.
How Do I Treat My Recently Finished Asphalt Pavement?
Asphalt aftercare requires you to not use it or drive over it for the next 24-48 hours. The duration is longer for hotter seasons. It should be followed with the standard regular maintenance of seal coating and resurfacing.
What Is the Expected Lifespan of a New Asphalt Driveway?
A homeowner can expect the driveway to last 30 years or longer if they use good products. Many projects can survive 40 to 50 years if properly maintained. Regular maintenance and vigilant care of your pavement or parking lot can extend the life of your property considerably.
