3 Benefits of Asphalt Driveway Installation August 28, 2020

3 Benefits of Asphalt Driveway Installation, ,

Most residential driveways are made of asphalt or concrete. While both materials are strong and durable, asphalt driveways come with many unique advantages. When weighing your options, consult this guide to determine whether this might be right for your lifestyle and needs.

Why Should You Have an Asphalt Driveway Installed?

1. Visual Appeal

After curing, an asphalt driveway is black or dark gray. Both of these rich, dark colors don’t show tire tracks, oil stains, and grime, making your front yard look pristine. They also disguise cracks, making the surface look new for years. If repairs are ever needed, the aggregate mixes blend in seamlessly with the existing material, making any patchwork less noticeable.

2. Quick Drying Time

3. Easy Maintenance

Paving contractors easily repair asphalt driveways. Unlike concrete, you don’t have to have the material removed entirely when damage develops. If surface fissures appear due to moisture infiltration, professionals use rubber-based emulsion products to seal the cracks and prevent wider gaps. Repair services are cost-effective and convenient, saving you time and money on replacements.
