How long does asphalt last?
The average lifespan of asphalt is approximately 20 years. However, this depends on a number of factors, including local weather conditions, severity of use, and quality of the original installation. The most important factor, though, is how well the asphalt is maintained.
Make a point of inspecting the asphalt and sealing any cracks at least once per year, or more often under severe use or weather conditions. Seal coat the asphalt every few years, and have it professionally patched as needed. With excellent care, asphalt can often last for 40 to 50 years.
