How To Get The Most Out Of Asphalt

March 23, 2023

Asphalt is a popular paving material for residential, commercial, and industrial surfaces of all kinds and rightly so, considering its benefits.

Paving projects are a hefty investment; therefore, you should choose the most durable paving material. Asphalt is one of the most durable materials, and it pays dividends in the long run. One of the lesser-known benefits of asphalt paving is the recyclability of asphalt.

Asphalt is an eco-friendly material, which can be reused without the worry of compromised strength and durability. Asphalt milling is a process where a milling machine is used to grind up the existing pavement. Asphalt milling is common in resurfacing projects, where the top few layers are badly damaged, while the sub-base is still very much intact and robust. Asphalt milling can be heated to form a pavement with hot mix asphalt or can be used as an alternative to gravel for a unique and porous surface.

Using asphalt millings in your project will not only allow you to do the right thing for the planet, but you will also save a ton of money on raw material cost.

Recycling old pavement to create a new surface is not the only way you can get the most out of asphalt. Asphalt is a durable material that can last for 20 to 25 years, depending on the traffic and the care you take of it. Asphalt surfaces require regular maintenance and timely repair if you wish to enjoy all that it offers, for a long time.

Asphalt Sealcoating, crack filling, and other such processes help retain your blacktop's functionality and appearance. Fixing early pavement distresses can prevent them from turning into more significant problems that may lead to premature pavement failure. Taking care of your pavement will slow down the deterioration, allowing your asset to have an extended service life.

Apart from longevity, a strict maintenance regimen keeps the pavement in optimum condition. A well-maintained parking lot can help commercial property owners and managers in providing their customers with a safe, convenient parking facility. Customers do not have to walk a long way to/from the facility, which significantly improves their service experience. It also prevents unnecessary downtime or slowed business.

An even surface that is free of any obvious signs of damage, and features a uniform look, can do wonders for your property's curb appeal. Age and other factors can cause the asphalt to turn dull grey, and cause settling, which affects the drive. However, necessary repairs can help maintain the pavement's structural integrity and strength, which improves safety and offers a smooth drive. Also, asphalt sealcoating gives the surface a rich black finish that will make it look brand new, thereby adding to the curb appeal and resale value.

You can get the most out of your asphalt whether you plan to reuse it or get a higher price for your property, so do not shy away from choosing this valuable material for your new pavement.
