Why use asphalt?
Asphalt is a non-slip, cost effective, durable, low maintenance and visually appealing alternative to concrete for any residential, industrial or commercial application.
General Advice and Helpful Hints
Do not use petrol, diesel, and oils over or near your asphalt
Walking on your asphalt is fine after paving. Try to keep cars off from surface where possible for 3 days. If it must be used, drive slowly and do not twist your steering (particularly when stationary)
Limit heavy duty truck usage unless extra thickness has been laid for this purpose
Backfill your edges for better structural support
Be careful of motorcycle kickstands
Avoid sudden acceleration and sharply turning your vehicle where possible
Weeds (especially nut grass) can grow through your asphalt. Ensure your base (including road base) is not contaminated with seed. If you are unsure, poison the area prior to paving.
It is especially important to have a great base prepared for asphalt. A great base ensures a great result.
Asphalt hardens and softens depending on the temperature. On really hot summer days, your asphalt can be softer than on a cooler day, so cosmetic scuffing can be more visible. These will usually disappear when the temperature lowers. As your new asphalt ages, these will happen less and less.
