Is Asphalt Paving Right for Your Business?
While asphalt paving is one of the most common materials used for paving and resurfacing because of its cost and quick installation time, many businesses may consider concrete as an alternative option before giving the go-ahead on asphalt paving in Orlando. To help you decide if asphalt paving is right for your business, here are the pros and cons.
Asphalt is a great choice when it comes to repaving a parking lot or driveway for the following reasons.
- Asphalt pavement is economically friendly, as it’s quite low in overall cost when used for driveways and parking lots. While fluctuations in crude oil prices can cause asphalt pricing to vary, the average price range runs between $2.50 to $4.00 per square foot.
- Depending on the size of the project, an asphalt driveway or parking lot can usually be installed in just a few days, saving you money in the long run. In warmer seasons, your asphalt parking lot can be ready for use in just two days, whereas a concrete parking lot can take up to a week to be ready to use.
- One downside of asphalt is that it requires maintenance, which is an ongoing expense that you must budget for. At about six months to a year after installation, your asphalt driveway or parking lot should be sealed, and again every three-five years afterward. However, this maintenance keeps the asphalt looking and working like new, extending the life of the driveway for upwards of 30 years.
- Asphalt is also visually more limited than concrete. Since asphalt must be rolled and compressed, there is little way of creating unique finishes. Until recently, there was little option in color apart from standard black. However, there are now tints that can be added at the end of as a sealant or even integral coloring that is added during mixing.
