What is the Advantage to an Asphalt Driveway?
So you've decided that its time to renovate your driveway, but you're not sure if you should replace it with asphalt. To aid in your decision, here are just some of the benefits of using asphalt.
Cost Effective: Asphalt is a durable material which can last years when properly installed on a suitable granular base. And when compared to concrete products, like interlock or pour in place concrete, is 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 therefor 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: Because there is little to no cutting involved in asphalt installations, there is also very little dust generated. This means that the homeowner and their neighbours are left with little to no cleaning to do after the work has been completed.
Residential Asphalt and Concrete Repairs
Regardless of whatever paving material you choose for your application, over time and use they all begin to deteriorate and show signs of wear. Here are some common signs that your driveway, walkway or garage floor need to be replaced.
Poor Drainage: Most residential properties are designed to drain water away from your home. To avoid additional expenses due to water damage to your home, it is always important to replace any paving surface that is draining improperly.
Undulation: If you are always parking in the same spot on your asphalt driveway, there is a good chance that it will warp under the weight of your vehicle. The uneven surface can water to pool and damage your driveway. It is important to consider solving these issues before the winter time when the excess water freezes, causing further damage.
Cracks: Concrete and asphalt materials are designed to flex, so that when installed properly, they resist unnecessary cracking when under stress. When the stress on the material becomes to high, the surface will crack and these cracks will spread. It is important to consider replacement or repair early, because these cracks allow moisture to permeate the surface and damage the granular base, which can be cause it to need replacement at and additional expense.
