Benefits of Asphalt Driveways

Asphalt driveways and pavements are resilient and durable. They are made to withstand extreme weather conditions and temperature changes. If you want to install a new driveway or replace your existing one, asphalt might suit your needs.

Asphalt driveways are similar to concrete driveways in terms of their functionality. They come with added affordability and an extended lifespan. Moreover, being a petroleum-based product, asphalt driveways are more flexible and less susceptible to cracking than concrete driveways. Some key benefits of asphalt include:

 

  • Flexible
    Asphalt driveways are flexible and can bend and move on the application of heavy loads. This flexibility will prevent your driveways from cracking under pressure.

     
  • Lasts long
    While many factors determine the durability of your asphalt, driveways and pavement can last 15 to 20 years.

     
  • Quick to install
    Asphalt pavements and driveways are easy to install. You can rely on our contractors to do an efficient and quick job with high-quality results.

     
  • Less expensive
    Asphalt is one of the most inexpensive materials for building durable driveways and pavements. We will be happy to provide a quote on the cost of asphalt driveway installation.

     
  • Recyclable
    Asphalt is 100% recyclable and can be reused a number of times. This makes it a very environmentally friendly material.

     
  • Facilitates easy water drainage
    Asphalt is a permeable or porous material that makes it easier for water to seep into the ground and clear away from your driveway or paving.

     
  • Good for noise reduction
    If you want a quiet driveway, asphalt is the material you should use. Its open and fine-graded surface and its material help absorb road noise.

 

Asphalt driveways and pavements are the more affordable, effective, and convenient options. They can be used soon after installation due to their fast-drying properties. When you call Ottawa Pavemaster, our experts will be happy to help you get the right asphalt driveway for your needs and increase the value of your property in Ottawa.

Maintaining an Asphalt Driveway in Ottawa

Maintaining an asphalt driveway is easy and fuss-free. To get the most life and best appearance from your driveway, clean it at least twice a year. Using a stiff broom and a hose spray to clean the driveway will help keep it looking good and functioning well for longer. It can also help catch any warning signs early. You can also ensure the durability of your asphalt pavement by using a seal coat every two to five years to ensure an attractive and water-resistant surface. Asphalt can be easily repaired with simple patching or seal coating.

 

Concrete Projects

We at Ottawa Pavemaster in Nepean, Ontario, also deal in various concrete projects for commercial and residential purposes, such as:

 

  • Curbs

  • Driveways

  • Garage floors

  • Laneways

  • Patios

 

Driveways and pavements can be made using concrete as well. We offer concrete pavements and driveways that can be made in a variety of decorative options to both business owners and homeowners across Ottawa. This makes our driveways unique from other methods of driveway construction. Browse through our gallery to see the full scope of our work.

Understanding Sealcoating: A Shield for Asphalt Driveways

While asphalt is a durable material, it's not invincible. Regular wear and tear, exposure to the elements, and even improper installation can lead to cracks and deterioration over time. Sealcoating, a liquid asphalt emulsion applied to the surface, forms a protective barrier against water, oil, and gasoline, prolonging the driveway's lifespan and preserving its appearance. Regular seal coating every 2-5 years is crucial for maintenance.

 

Here are some of the key benefits of seal coating your asphalt driveway:

 

  • Protects Against Water Damage: Water is the enemy of asphalt. It can seep into cracks, and freeze-thaw cycles can cause these cracks to expand, leading to potholes and further deterioration. Sealcoating creates a waterproof barrier that prevents water infiltration and protects the underlying asphalt base.
     

  • Prevents Cracking: Exposure to sunlight can cause asphalt to become brittle and crack. Sealcoating helps to mitigate the effects of UV rays by keeping the asphalt flexible and more resistant to cracking.
     

  • Improves Appearance: A fresh coat of seal coat will restore the rich black colour of your asphalt driveway, enhancing its curb appeal. Sealcoating can also fill minor imperfections in the surface, creating a smoother and more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
     

  • Extends Lifespan: By protecting your driveway from the elements and preventing premature cracking, seal coating can significantly extend its lifespan. A well-maintained asphalt driveway can last for 20-30 years or even longer.

Preserving Your Asphalt Driveway: Identifying Types of Asphalt Cracks

Cracks in asphalt driveways come in various forms, each requiring specific attention. Here's an overview of the different types of cracks you may encounter:

 

  • Hairline Cracks: These are thin cracks, typically less than ¼ inch wide. They may not require immediate attention but should be monitored for signs of expansion.
     

  • Alligator Cracks: These interconnected cracks resemble alligator skin and indicate more extensive damage to the asphalt base. These cracks require professional repair.
     

  • Edge Cracks: These cracks occur along the edges of the driveway and can be caused by improper installation or settling of the base material. They may require patching or edge sealing.
     

The appropriate repair method for cracks will depend on their severity. For minor hairline cracks, a simple crack filler may suffice. For larger cracks, a more involved patching process may be necessary. Don't let wear and tear compromise your driveway's integrity – reach out to us for reliable asphalt driveway solutions in Ottawa.

Environmental Benefits of Asphalt Driveways

While asphalt is often perceived as an environmentally unfriendly material, there are several environmental benefits to consider when choosing it for your driveway. One of that is that asphalt is one of the most recycled materials in North America. Up to 70% of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) can be incorporated into new asphalt mixtures, reducing the need for virgin materials and minimizing landfill waste.
