Believe it or not, asphalt paving costs far less than concrete or stonework. Asphalt is charged based on the surface area of your space, but because asphalt is a relatively liquid material that hardens as a seemingly single sheet, the application process is less invasive. And driveway paving costs differ from commercial parking lot paving, as well.
We always recommend hiring experienced professionals when installing asphalt paving to ensure a seamless application that is level, free of divots, prepped, and consistent throughout. In hiring professionals, our customers must account for the labour involved in driveway paving costs, asphalt repair, as well as materials used for an overall completed parking lot paving or driveway paving project. Even so, you are still spending far less than if using concrete or stones.
Asphalt paving can last for decades with little maintenance work required to keep its surface levelling and lustre. So, you get a return on investment for your driveway paving cost. In places like Canada, asphalt paving can withstand cold conditions without cracking, which requires less maintenance in the long run. This helps reduce ongoing labour costs tremendously when compared to concrete or stonework. In the instance you do find your asphalt paving has cracked over decades of use, it is far easier to repair and will easily blend into the overall surface appearance. Whereas, brand new concrete or stonework is less visually forgiving unless you are willing to invest in a brand new parking lot or driveway.
Asphalt driveway repair can be minimal if you take care of the asphalt paving to avoid long-term damage and further costs such as extensive driveway paving costs. Snow and debris are known to damage any surface if it is not promptly removed. We suggest the same with asphalt paving. By removing and cleaning an asphalt driveway surface when possible, you can maintain asphalt paving lustre with less ongoing invasive maintenance over time. Customers can also add sealing to their surface every three years to maintain asphalt paving finishes.
