Benefits of Asphalt for Driveways
Asphalt is the same material used for roads, so it’s uniquely suited for supporting the weight of cars, which makes it perfect for residential driveways. It’s durable; if installed correctly, an asphalt driveway can last decades. Unlike concrete, asphalt can expand and contract with temperature cycles and vehicle weight without cracking. An asphalt driveway adds a very modern look to any property and increases curb appeal, and there are various decorative edging options available too. Asphalt is also cost effective because it’s cheap to install and low maintenance.
Asphalt Driveway Paving Process
To create a long-lasting asphalt driveway, the paving pros need to start with a solid base layer of gravel that has been compacted and graded so that water won’t pool on the pavement and cause damage. This gravel layer is anywhere from 2” to 5” thick, depending on the slope. Next, contractors pour hot liquid asphalt in a layer of around 2”. The asphalt cures and hardens to that black surface we know from roadways. Once it is cured, the driveway is done! A sealer can be added to protect the new driveway.
