Benefits of Asphalt paving

Asphalt pavement is the most common material used due to the range of benefits it offers.


Asphalt pavement is resistant to skidding which reduces the possibility of accidents; and the high color contrast with painted lines and indicators offers much better visibility in tough weather condition. Asphalt evens allows ice and snow to melt faster than other pavement materials. Open-graded asphalt can also help reduce splash and sprays during rainstorms.


Compared to other forms of pavements, asphalt pavement offers a uniform surface. It reduces friction between your tires and the pavement which provides you better fuel economy and helps your tires last longer.


The installation and repair expenses of asphalt paving are less than most other options. It requires less money for maintenance than other options and usually only needs periodic maintenance to keep it lasting for years.


Asphalt pavement is also very durable. Asphalt pavement is flexible and can withstand occasional overloading without experiencing any serious damage.

Ready Quickly

Environmentally friendly

Asphalt is also one of the most recycled products in America; it is 100% recyclable. You can remove and crush old pavement, and mix fresh asphalt with old to reuse it for future paving projects.
