Asphalt remains the most common material chosen for driveways, roadways, and more. This is because the surface has enormous benefits, no matter where you choose to install it. Parking lots also make a good area for asphalt paving. Concrete has its drawbacks, as the surface is not very durable under weather conditions and as time wears on. Asphalt, on the other hand, will do you well in every season. At McFarlane Paving, we know asphalt. In business for over 50 years, we've paved countless residential and commercial properties. Each project we've completed is done with precise and efficient methods. Our professional asphalt pavers are fully trained and experienced in working with your property to achieve attractive results that add value to your property. Below are some of the reasons you should consider asphalt for your driveway, parking lot, road, or other flat surface.
First of all, asphalt is an affordable material. It’s usually much cheaper than concrete, and much easier to repair as well. Which means less money spent in the initial purchase, and less money spent down the road. A true advantage is that this highly durable surface comes at such low prices. Which leads us to the next reason.
Asphalt is durable. Under the care of our expert installers, the surface laid down on your driveway, lot, or road will handle extreme weather conditions. And time after time, cities choose asphalt for their construction because they know that once installed, it’s there basically forever. In New Jersey, we experience seasonal weather patterns that jump from one extreme to another. Asphalt keeps up with the change, and will maintain its integrity in extreme cold and extreme heat. Even under the most high traffic locations, asphalt roadways stand the test of time.
Aside from its cost and durability, asphalt is extremely easy to maintain as well. Treating cracks, sealing the surface, and repaving are all easy, fast, and equally cost effective. By contrast, when concrete cracks, the surface will always remain fractured. The asphalt surface you choose to install will look great after routine maintenance.
