Asphalt Driveway – An Eco-friendly And Versatile Choice
Research has shown that the installation of asphalt pavement requires approximately 20 percent less energy than other driveway materials and there are other factors which make asphalt a sustainable and environmentally friendly material. For example, the asphalt industry produces 350 million metric tons per year, about 80 percent of which is recycled.
Compared to concrete, asphalt surfaces require minimal maintenance. There's nothing less appealing than a light driveway with dirt or oil stains where vehicles park. Asphalt hides these unsightly problems better. With affordable asphalt sealcoating services you can also protect your beautiful black driveway so it can last a decade or more!
Why Choose Asphalt Driveway?
If you have any doubts in your mind regarding asphalt driveway installation, here are four reasons that may help you make a better decision:
For a homeowner, the type of driveway you choose is important. Most people make the mistake of choosing price over quality. Although there are benefits to concrete installations, asphalt is much less expensive than concrete. In fact, it is considered one of the most cost-effective options for home driveway construction.
Easy Repair and Maintenance
The repairing part is what makes asphalt even more tempting. Compared to repairing concrete, repaving the top layer of an asphalt driveway or filling in cracks and small holes is easy compared to concrete repairs. Asphalt has a permanent base and sometimes as well. Whether it is a small hole or minor cracks, repairing is easy and quick.
Asphalt driveway installation is faster than you can expect. Once asphalt has been laid, in most cases, you will be able to drive on your brand new asphalt driveway after 24 hours. Adn who doesn't love that smooth feel of fresh asphalt?
Long-Lasting Smoother Appearance
Concrete driveways tend to give an industrialized look to your home. On the other hand, asphalt gives a more warm and inviting look due to its smooth appearance. Many people ask about the life span of an asphalt driveway? Well, the life expectancy of asphalt pavement depends on various factors such as maintenance and climate. With proper installation and maintenance, asphalt driveways can last from 10-20 years or more.
Asphalt Driveway Installation Process
At Paragon Paving & Masonry, we understand that you may not be familiar with the asphalt driveway installation process. Here is everything you need to know about the entire installation process of an asphalt driveway.
Step 1: Consultation and Estimate
Once you call us, our expert owner James will contact you to arrange a convenient time to visit your location. Our team of asphalt installation experts will measure the required driveway, assess your soil condition, and make our professional recommendation. At the end of the visit, we will prepare a written estimate for the project.
Step 2: Removing Old Driveway
If your existing driveway is severely crumbling, cracked, or not in good condition, we will use various advanced equipment to remove it. This demo period typically takes just one day.
Step 3: Installing Sub-Base
Once we remove all old paving, we will place new sub-base materials and smoothen them using a vibratory roller and other equipment. During this process, we work on base thickness, stability, and compactness. This process usually concludes on the same day.
Step 4: Binder and Surface Course
Once we lay the sub-base, we identify any soft areas before adding the binder (a layer of aggregate mixed with oil for making the asphalt robust and durable).
Step 5: Installing a New Asphalt Surface
The laying down of smooth asphalt is achieved with a paving machine. Afterward, we use a roller and other equipment to compact and smooth the hot asphalt.
At Paragon Paving & Masonry, we provide asphalt driveway installation services by ensuring the foundation is adequate, using top-quality materials and equipment, and proper drainage.
Asphalt Driveway Installation Cost
We often get a query about how much does asphalt driveway installation cost. Well, it is important to understand that the costs are usually determined by various factors such as preparation of the surface, equipment costs, the asphalt material, installation cost, etc.
We urge you to contact us as we offer the most affordable rates when it comes to installing asphalt driveways in Union, Somerset, Essex and surrounding areas.
Asphalt Driveway Repair And Maintenance
If you already have an asphalt driveway, keep in mind that it is essential to have minor damages repaired as soon as possible.
