Why asphalt paving is the preferred choice

Asphalt. It’s the preferred choice of paving contractors everywhere. If you know your paving, then you’re aware that asphalt is the superior choice, in almost every paving scenario.

There are several reasons for that and this post will reveal why asphalt paving is the preferred choice.


Paving experts know that asphalt can withstand just about anything nature and the modern world can pound it with. Weather is no match for asphalt. While it requires repair from time to time, like anything else, asphalt’s durability is one of the primary reasons most contractors like Parking Lot Armor choose it above all other materials.

For driveways, walkways, parking lots and roads, there’s nothing like asphalt to stand up to extreme temperatures, inclement weather and high traffic volume.

Reduced maintenance

Asphalt’s ability to stand up under a wide range of conditions is the reason it requires far less maintenance and repair work.

High quality asphalt, installed by professional pavers, can last for up to 20 years. With regular inspection to control the surface for cracks that may cause water incursion, you’re assured of a sound asphalt structure for a good 2 decades.

To keep your asphalt in peak condition and serving you to its utmost ability, sealcoating your asphalt is a preservative step that adds even more durability and resistance to the elements.

Aesthetics and safety

Parking lots, driveways and roads look smoother and sharper, when paved in asphalt. This material lends itself to the kind of safety you need to keep your business property liability-safe, too.

In a litigious world, asphalt offers peace of mind that your guests, employees and customers are safe when using your asphalt-paved surfaces.


Because of asphalt’s durability, whatever surface you pave with it is going to require fewer repairs and much less maintenance and that saves you money.

When you sealcoat your asphalt investment, you’ll save even more. Even tiny cracks can wreak havoc with the structural integrity of your asphalt. Sealcoating helps you protect the investment you’ve made.

It also serves to offer your wallet even more friendly savings!

All these reasons are why asphalt paving is the preferred choice, today. Once upon a time, it was concrete. But asphalt has a major advantage over that formerly widely-used paving medium, because it’s flexible. Concrete is a material which is inherently rigid, which makes it much more prone to cracking.
