What Are the Advantages of Asphalt Paving?
Are you planning on renovating your driveway? If you're not sure whether to replace it with asphalt or not, here are some of the advantages of installing an asphalt driveway:
Cost effective: Asphalt is a durable material that can last for years when installed properly on a suitable granular base. Compared to concrete products like interlock or pour-in-place concrete, it’s less expensive to replace and maintain.
Time: Asphalt installations are often aided by heavy machinery such as skid steer loaders, that can greatly improve the efficiency of work, and therefore the amount of time it takes to complete a job. Often we are able to complete some driveway projects within the same day of removal.
Cleanliness: As there is little to no cutting involved in asphalt installations, dust generated is less. So you and your next-door neighbours are left with little to no cleaning to do after the installation.
Residential Asphalt and Concrete Repairs
Regardless of the paving material you choose, they all begin to deteriorate and show signs of wear and tear over time. Here are some common signs that indicate that your walkway, driveway, or garage floor needs to be replaced:
Poor Drainage: Your residential properties are designed to drain water away from home to avoid additional expenses due to water damage. So, it is necessary to replace the damaged paving surface that is not draining properly.
Undulation: If you park on the same spot (on the asphalt driveway) everyday, there is a good chance that it will warp due to the weight of your automobile. This will result in an uneven surface that can pool water and damage your driveway. It is necessary to consider solving these issues before winter because when the excess water freezes it will cause further damage.
Cracks: Concrete and asphalt materials are designed to flex under stress to resist cracking. But when the stress increases beyond a point, the surface will crack and may spread over time. Early replacement or repair can avoid additional expense, as the cracks allow moisture to permeate the surface and damage the granular base.
