What is Asphalt Paving?
Asphalt paving is the industry standard for parking lots, roadways, and other high traffic solid surfaces and for good reason! Of the 4.12 million roads in the U.S., it is estimated that 94% are asphalt pavement. (Need Asphalt paving Baltimore? Click here) Most roads and parking lots are paved using Hot Mix Asphalt. Hot Mix Asphalt is comprised mostly of sand, stone and gravel which is bonded together by asphalt cement. The Hot Mix Asphalt is then poured into a paving machine which compacts and smooths the asphalt to a desired base depth. When cooled and compacted using an asphalt roller, the finished product is a beautiful, smooth solid surface.
What are the Benefits of Asphalt Paving?
Asphalt paving is the most economical choice for roads and parking lots and is up to eight times more economical than concrete. Not only does it cost significantly less than most other solid surface options but it also takes significantly less time to achieve a finished product. In fact, many asphalt roads can be driven on within minutes of application.Efficient
Asphalt paving can be used in a very large variety of applications which include: Roadways, parking lots, sidewalks, driveways, sport courts, bike paths and much more. Because of its resilient properties, when installed properly, asphalt paving can withstand high traffic areas and extremely heavy loads. Business owners and property managers love asphalt paving because of its ability to withstand wind, rain, snow and other harsh outdoor elements. The earth is constantly moving. Because of its flexible properties, asphalt pavement will move with the ground which prevents harsh cracks and separation.
The energy consumption used to manufacture asphalt paving materials is very low and is said to consume 20% less energy than any other pavement type. Asphalt paving not only conserves energy, but it is also one of the most recyclable construction materials in the world. In fact, according to the National Asphalt Pavement Association, 99% of asphalt pavement materials are recycled.
