Back to asphalt paved driveways…

Americans spend billions of dollars on asphalt paving for commercial and residential driveways and parking lots.

Asphalt paving is one of the most popular and best materials to use for driveways and driving surfaces especially in Michigan.

There are many benefits that come with an asphalt driveway that validate your spending on this investment.  We have listed them below.

Fast Installation

Asphalt is definitely one of the best materials to work with if you want your driveway installed quickly. The professionals at Total Asphalt Paving can usually lay an asphalt driveway in a day or so depending on the size of the project and of course, the weather.

A concrete driveway takes a lot longer to lay and much longer to set. In most cases, you can drive across an asphalt driveway within two days of its completion. Concrete driveways take about a week to set before you can drive on them.

Lower Costs

No matter if you are using asphalt paving on driveways, parking lots, or even city roads, it is considerably less costly than concrete in many cases.

When adhering to budgets, an asphalt driveway will give you much more bang for your buck.

The materials themselves cost less than other paving materials as well as the labor costs since the jobs can be completed much faster.

Smooth, Seamless Appearance

As far as appearance goes, asphalt driveways often look richer than other types of driveways with their dark smooth finish.  This look gives homes a warm and inviting appearance to guests coming in or people passing on the street.

Durability

For those who prioritize durability above all else, asphalt driveways are a great option to consider. This is because asphalt isn’t as finicky as concrete.

Less Maintenance

Thanks to its durability, there’s less maintenance required with an asphalt driveway compared to a concrete driveway or one paved with other materials.

In most cases, all you have to do to maintain a concrete driveway is to keep it swept on a regular basis and have a protective sealant applied to it on a regular basis (about every 1 – 2 years).

Long-Lasting

If you take good care of your asphalt driveway, it will last a long time with very little maintenance.  The average lifespan of an asphalt driveway can last between 12 and 20 years.

More Weatherproof

Asphalt driveways can handle inclement weather better than driveways paved with other materials, too.

During the winter, it’s common for concrete to deteriorate, especially in the face of extreme shifts in temperature or when it’s exposed to salt and other chemicals.

Asphalt driveways are less vulnerable to these conditions, though. They’re less likely to flake or deteriorate and can handle weather shifts more easily.

Asphalt driveways, because of their dark color, also help snow to melt faster. This means you’ll have to worry less about shoveling in order to get out of your driveway on snowy days.

Easy to Repair

Asphalt driveways are quite durable.

In the event that you do need a repair to your driveway, though, it’s quite easy to take care of asphalt damage. Most of the time, asphalt driveway repairs take very little time to complete.

Because of the dark color of the asphalt, it’s also harder to tell that a repair took place at all. This ensures that your driveway will look great for a long time and won’t show signs of wear and tear.
