How long will my asphalt driveway or parking lot last?
There are many factors to consider before answering this question. Weather, traffic flow, and other factors go into answering this question, but typically asphalt surfaces last 12 to 15 years. Asphalt that is properly maintained with asphalt sealer will ensure that your asphalt last many years longer than asphalt that is not maintained.
What is the difference between replacing asphalt and resurfacing asphalt?
When we replace asphalt, we remove the existing asphalt, regrade the area and apply new asphalt in the same area. Resurfacing asphalt (also known as "capping") is when we put another layer of asphalt over the existing asphalt. Though this option will not last as long as replacing the asphalt, it is a more cost effective option to consider when your current asphalt has failed.
How long do I have to wait until I can drive on new asphalt?
We recommend waiting at least three days.
How thick is asphalt applied?
Asphalt is applied in 2 to 2 and a half inch layers. After it is compacted properly, each layer is approximately 1 and a half inches thick.
Can you cut out portions of an asphalt driveway or parking lot and replace them with new asphalt?
Yes. This is a common practice, and is a preferred method of replacing damaged or failing asphalt.
