We have often been asked at Texas Driveway & Parking Lot Repair why asphalt is the preferred choice for so many new paving applications. First of all, asphalt is the #1 most recycled material in this country, so it’s a very sustainable approach to paving, and it conserves natural resources in a major way. Then of course, there’s the aesthetic appeal, because nothing looks better than the contrast between a freshly installed dark asphalt surface and the white striping which indicates lane boundaries.
It’s also much easier to repair asphalt than for instance, a material like concrete. When you have some kind of cracking or other damage, it’s generally possible to simply repair a small section of an asphalt surface. With concrete, you’ll probably end up having to rip up the entire area and do a complete re-install of the concrete. If you’re operating on a budget, you’ll love the fact that asphalt is an inexpensive option for paving, and can cost far less than what it would cost to install a concrete surface for whatever application you have in mind.
