There are several very good reasons why asphalt is the go-to material for the construction and repair of roads, parking lots and driveways. Choosing to use asphalt for the paving of drivable surfaces has undeniable benefits for both commercial and residential projects. The four main benefits of asphalt paving are:
Asphalt is adaptable
There is no shortage to the possible uses of asphalt. It can be used to pave roads of different sizes and in different locations. From highways to bicycle paths, asphalt offers a flexible option that can be tailor-made to suit various road and climate conditions. For example, there are specially formulated asphalt mixes that can be used to build roads to withstand extreme changes in weather and temperature.
Asphalt is durable
The adaptability of asphalt, especially to different weather conditions, also makes it incredibly durable. Asphalt surfaces can withstand rain, snow, hail and anything else that Mother Nature has to throw at them. Asphalt is also a great load-bearing material and can withstand incredibly heavy loads, such as semi-trucks.
Asphalt is economical
Not only is asphalt a relatively low-cost building material, but it also has the added advantages of taking a very short time to lay down and to completely dry, saving you both time and money. There are further savings to be made in the fact that asphalt is durable and easy to repair.
Asphalt is recyclable
Part of the reason that asphalt comes at such a low cost is that it is an easily recyclable material. Old asphalt surfaces can be dug up and used again in new projects. Asphalt is an environmentally-friendly choice because it can be used again and again while maintaining the same quality, helping to preserve precious natural resources that would otherwise have to be used.
