Q. Why should I consider asphalt for my driveway or roadway project?

A. Asphalt is a petroleum-based product used for driveways, roads, paths and projects requiring a smooth surface for traffic. It is flexible and durable, easily maintained and aesthetically pleasing.

Q. How much does asphalt cost compared to other options?

A. The costs vary depending upon project size and scope and the amount of preparation needed.

Q. How long does asphalt last?

A. Applied correctly, it should last about 20 years, depending on traffic levels and type and maintenance.

Q. When will we be able to walk on our new asphalt?

A. Newly paved asphalt can be driven on shortly after rolling is complete, however we recommend 24 hours for commercial parking lots or roadways.
