Weighing the costs and benefits of paving options can be tricky, especially when each job and situation is unique. Let Hallman Asphalt make your driveway decision simple.
Compared to concrete, asphalt is less expensive and easier to maintain. Cracks in asphalt can be filled and the surface can be sealed every few years. Even with the varying Wisconsin climate, asphalt remains strong, yet flexible and the black color absorbs heat, helping snow melt faster.
Here are a few things you should know:
- A proper base is critical. Read about our Base Work.
- Your new asphalt driveway will take between six and 12 months to cure completely.
- We suggest rotating parking spots from day to day, to avoid leaving tire indentations.
- Throughout the day, temperature changes will affect the hardness of your blacktop.
- Lawn chairs and kickstands may leave unintended marks in the asphalts surface.
- Long term parking of RVs and trailers should include plywood under the receiver and tires.
