For many of us, the end of the year means we reflect upon the last year and consider what it is we can do to improve our lives when the new year hits.  Some of those things on your list may seem obvious; other things may need some inspiration behind them.  We know how frustrated you’ve been with the state of your driveway – cracks and crevices alike.  It’s unattractive and it can really do a number on your car tires.  Now is the time to book your upcoming spring asphalt project with Total Asphalt Paving, Inc. soon!

Many people don’t truly know what asphalt paving really is.  Asphalt pavements are an aggregate of stone and sand mixed with a tar-like material made from petroleum.  Varying sizes of aggregates are heated, then mixed, in exact proportions, with asphalt cement that has been liquefied at about 300°F.  While the mixture is still very hot, it is delivered to your property and placed on top of a prepared stone base.  

There are many benefits to having an asphalt paved driveway in Macomb County.  They:

  • Are smooth, strong and durable
  • Are flexible and less prone to cracking
  • Will withstand freezing and thawing
  • Are unaffected by salt, so it is unharmed by winter elements
  • Are less costly than concrete
  • Are fast setting

That’s why we suggest inspecting the state of your current driveway now before the warmer months approach us.  Many of the above benefits don’t necessarily come with concrete paving; therefore, asphalt is the material that will prove its durability over time and, ultimately, last you the longest in comparison.  

According to NAPA (National Asphalt Paving Association), temperature has everything to do with when to do a driveway asphalt job.  Asphalt must be placed and compacted while it is hot.  Lift thickness and air and surface temperatures play significant roles in how fast the mix cools and, therefore, the time a contractor has to complete the work.  Because seasonal temperatures vary throughout the U.S., average air temperatures serve as a better guide for paving than a particular range of months.
