Why Choose Asphalt?

Dec 1, 2015 -- Posted by : admin

Asphalt, Bitumen, Tarmac, it is known by many names. So why would you choose Asphalt as the material of choice for your driveway.


  1. Its Good Looking – Asphalt gives a clean crisp look to your landscaping and with the right attention to edging materials can really give you the entry statement you have been dreaming of.
  2. Low Cost – Since asphalt driveways can be less expensive than concrete driveways, they’re a popular choice among homeowners who consider cost to be a primary factor. This is especially true for long driveways in suburban and rural areas or for people who are renovating for profit.
  3. Flexible Strength – Since asphalt driveways are not rigid, but retain some flexibility, even after curing, they are less easily damaged by sudden impacts. In addition, that flexibility helps to reduce temperature-induced cracking.
  4. Easier to Repair – If damage does occur, asphalt driveways are easier and less expensive to repair in most cases. Any cracks that appear can be sealed.
  5. Speed and Usability - An asphalt driveway can usually be laid in one or two days, depending on the size of the project. A concrete driveway can take as much as twice as long to pave as an asphalt driveway of the same size and dimensions.
  6. Lifespan: An asphalt driveway will last anywhere from 25 to 30 years with proper maintenance.
  7. Lower Maintenance Costs: Not only are asphalt driveways easier to repair, but the cost associated with doing so is typically lower than concrete repairs.

What Our Clients Say

Being a small earth moving business it is not always easy to get quality service when dealing with some of our smaller jobs. During my first experience with Merger I experienced their “Can Do” attitude and that has been present in all work that they have carried out for my company. There has been nothing that has been too much trouble. Merger is one of the few companies that I have dealt with that have been there on time every time, from quoting to being on site at the designated start time. All work has been of the highest quality.
