Why Asphalt Paving Union?
Asphalt has been used for waterproofing since the fifth millennium B.C. Our ancient ancestors discovered by covering an object with asphalt (bitumen), the object became impervious to water.
Water is the enemy of any surface, not only asphalt. Water erosion created the Grand Canyon. Why couldn’t the power of water destroy your investment? That’s why preventing water from entering your asphalt driveway or parking lot is the key to its long life.
By resealing or recoating your asphalt surface, any cracks will be plugged thus preventing water from eroding the base of the surface. Once the water has gained entrance to your surface, the water will start to erode the bed beneath or freeze and expand creating new cracks.
Asphalt v.s. Concrete
Asphalt surfaces install faster, are less expensive to install and maintain and are resistant to salt and chemicals.
Concrete surfaces take around 30 days before an acceptable cure is achieved, cost about double and are easily degraded by rock salt in the winter.
