The Basics of Asphalt: Cost Effectiveness

 

  • Studies have repeatedly shown that on average, over a 40-year period, asphalt pavements are more economical than their concrete counterparts.
  • Asphalt pavement gives the best return on investment of any paving material.
  • Asphalt pavements can be built quickly, which reduces traffic hazards, saves you time, and makes sure your business is accessible to your customers sooner than later.

Cost-Effective as a Renewable Resource

Beyond the cost-effective benefits of lasting better, being of higher quality, and having a quicker installation process, an asphalt is a wonderful option because it is a renewable resource.  This means your use of asphalt will be less expensive for you personally, but will also have positive results in the future.The Basics of Asphalt: Cost Effectiveness

  • Asphalt is one of America’s greatest renewable resources.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Very impressed with the quality of their work and the organization of the company. The project estimator was spot on as to when the bid would be received and the work was professional  from start to finish. I appreciated the opportunity for a walkthrough inspection after the crack filling was completed as I had some very large cracks in the asphalt. I give this company a ten out of ten (which I really do) and highly recommend them.
