You’ve probably heard the terms “asphalt patching” and “asphalt paving” in the past, but you might not have put too much thought into what the difference between them is. While you may clump paving and patching in the same category, they are actually two very different services we offer at R & R Paving and Grading.

Asphalt Patching vs. Paving: What’s the Difference?

Asphalt Patching

Regular use is hard on asphalt surfaces, and everything from the weather to vehicle collisions can put your asphalt under a lot of pressure. As time passes, your asphalt may need a little bit of patching up to maintain its smooth surface, and this is where asphalt patching comes in. Instead of completely replacing the asphalt surface after damage, patching can help you cost-effectively repair the surface.

Asphalt Paving

The process of paving a road with asphalt material is known as asphalt paving. This is the most common way to create needed roads. Not only are asphalt roads attractive and durable, but it also doesn’t take very long to pave a new asphalt road. When done right, the best way to go when you’re putting in a new road is to have it paved with asphalt.
