Asphalt is one of the most popular choices for driveways. It’s smooth surface makes it a good choice for being driven over with minimum noise while its uniform black color can match the look of any home.
It’s also environment-friendly because it’s entirely recyclable. Once damaged, the top layer can be removed, reheated, and then it’s as good as new to be used again. Talk about cost savings!
Its eco-friendly properties also mean asphalt driveways are totally safe because they don’t emit gases or other harmful chemicals.
Asphalt is easy to lay, flexible, and can withstand a lot of movement before cracking. The key to asphalt driveways, however, is regular maintenance — which can be demanding. But it’s worth in the long run considering it can last as long as 20 years.
