Why Asphalt is Preferred Over Concrete
It was once thought that concrete was the best material for paving roads or other projects. But, asphalt is actually preferred for most commercial and industrial facilities. Asphalt is a superior product to concrete and it’s easier to make repairs when necessary.
Concrete is made up of sand, and crushed rocks. When water and cement are added, they create a binder to hold the aggregates in place. When the mix dries, it stiffens up. But, over time, concrete is prone to breaking and cracking. This is more prevalent when the surface beneath the concrete isn’t completely flat.
While asphalt uses aggregates, similar to concrete, one if its derivatives is crude oil. The benefit is that there’s a bit more flexing with asphalt. That’s because the binder is bitumen. Once asphalt is poured on a commercial parking lot or road, as it cools, it can withstand vehicle traffic and it’s highly durable underfoot. These are features that concrete lacks.
There are additional advantages to using asphalt. The main point being that when a section of an asphalt road needs to be repaired, it’s a simple procedure. Asphalt is recyclable. Once a damaged section of road is heated to 300-degrees, the damaged section is removed. It's replaced with fresh asphalt and sealed in so it can blend in the with the rest of the asphalt roadway. This means roadways can open in faster amounts of time and there are fewer traffic delays.
Asphalt requires less time and is cost-efficient. It’s a proven solution for industrial and commercial businesses. This helps ensure your space is always aesthetically pleasing. And, it can reduce your liability as you can make rapid repairs if you find any cracks or potholes.
