As a paving contractor with over 30 years of experience, we’re very familiar with the questions new customers have. Often, people want to know why we offer asphalt paving rather than concrete or other materials like brick and stone. Asphalt paving has a variety of benefits that make it an excellent choice for driveways, streets, and parking lots. Here are just a few of them:
- Affordability- If you’re looking for a cost-effective paving option for your driveway or another surface, asphalt is the way to go. Asphalt costs just a few dollars per square foot and is typically around half the cost of a concrete driveway.
- Quick Installation- Asphalt paving requires professional installation for the best results, and we have the equipment we need to complete the job in a timely manner. In addition, asphalt sets and hardens quickly, so you’ll be able to drive on it much sooner than you would with another material.
- Flexibility- Because asphalt is very flexible and adaptable, it can perform well in many conditions and withstand traffic loads without damage.
- Ease of Maintenance- While asphalt paving often requires more maintenance than other types of paving, it is fairly simple and convenient to maintain. For example, cracks in asphalt are easy to repair, and resurfacing is possible when it’s necessary.
- Recyclability- Asphalt is 100% recyclable, which makes it an excellent environmentally friendly paving option. In addition, asphalt requires less energy to produce in the first place and emits fewer greenhouse gases than other materials during production.
