As the New Year begins, now is a great time to renew your roadways and parking lots with the number one surfacing material: asphalt! Because asphalt is so common (it is seen and used on daily basis), many people do not take the time to stop and think about just what it is that makes it so special. Reliable Contracting is here to help and tell you what the biggest benefits of asphalt are- read on to find out more!
One of the main reasons that asphalt is so widely used is that its paving process is so quick. Just imagine: If asphalt took hours and hours to properly dry and set, this could severely disrupt traffic and lead to unnecessary delays and detours. But because asphalt roads can be paved quickly, they save drivers a lot of headache and allow them to get back on track as soon as possible. Asphalt contractors tend to schedule paving for off-peak hours to minimize disruption. By the time the morning commuters are out on the road, the asphalt surface has set and is safe to drive on!
Asphalt: The Cost-Friendly Paving Solution
Another of asphalt’s appeals is its low cost, both for initial paving and maintenance. In fact, maintenance costs will be negligible at most- asphalt is extremely durable, and so it will be able to stand up to a lot of wear and tear before it is in need of repairing. With any surface that will be frequently used, you want to ensure that you get your money’s worth out of it. Asphalt is one of the few options out there that can guarantee this high cost-per-use rate!
Asphalt: The Eco-Conscious Paving Solution
In addition to saving you both time and money, asphalt does its part towards saving the environment as well! Asphalt is a recyclable paving material, meaning that even if a section of asphalt has become damaged, it can be milled and used again. By cutting down on the need for brand new materials, asphalt helps to preserve resources for the future.
