It’s no secret that asphalt is our preferred choice of paving material. So why should it be yours? Asphalt brings numerous benefits to any project it’s a part of. Read on for our many reasons why asphalt mix is right for your next project!
Have you heard of perpetual pavement? Using asphalt, these roads and driveways can last FOREVER when designed and maintained properly. Asphalt is laid down in three layers, producing a deep-strength asphalt pavement that can resist structural fatigue for over 50 years. Maintenance on these asphalt roads can be done quickly and easily, oftentimes only needing to address the surface layer. That means less disturbance to traffic flow and parking when maintenance is necessary.
Smooth and Safe:
Asphalt provides a smoother surface than concrete. This smooth surface equates to less damage to the pavement over time, while simultaneously improving fuel efficiency and reducing wear and tear on the vehicles that drive on it! Not only that, but asphalt is a safer surface due to its resistance to ice and snow, offering motorists skid resistance. The darker color can also help motorists discern between pavement markings at night.
Adaptable and Cost Effective:
Asphalt will cost you less in the long run. This is thanks to its affordability to make, as well as the time it takes to lay. You will save time and money both on the construction as well as during the eventual maintenance and repairs. Not only that, but asphalt is adaptable. It can be used for both high and low traffic conditions, while withstanding the harshest of weather and heaviest of trailers!
Asphalt is a recycled material that can be used again and again! This is great news in terms of preserving Earth’s natural resources. Oftentimes when it is time to replace the road, asphalt can be dug up and reused for the next one. Asphalt pavement is unquestionably the US’s most widely recycled product.
