What are the benefits of asphalt?


Asphalt is an ideal surface for many applications. A blend of bituminous cement and aggregates, asphalt is used for everything from driveways to roads to parking lots. While there are many alternatives, asphalt has a number of advantages over other materials.

  • Aesthetics: Asphalt creates a smooth, clean, streamlined look that adds curb appeal. Yet it costs only a small fraction of what you would pay for pavers or concrete.
  • Safety: When choosing a material for a parking lot or road, asphalt is arguably the safest option. The black asphalt creates a high contrast with white striping, making it easy for drivers to see even in inclement weather.
  • Noise reduction: Asphalt does a remarkable job of lowering road noise levels. In fact, a quiet pavement mix can reduce road noise by up to 50 percent over other options. This makes it an excellent choice for projects in suburbs and other traditionally quiet areas.
  • Durability: Asphalt requires very little maintenance and has a long lifespan. Clean it twice per year, sealcoat it at least every five years, patch small holes as they occur, and it is likely to last for at least 35 years.
