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.
