How to Get the Best Deal on Asphalt for Your Next Project
Asphalt is one of the most affordable and cost-efficient paving choices. When an asphalt road, parking lot or other surface is properly paved, and the correct maintenance techniques are followed, asphalt is capable of lasting for decades.
Installed correctly, asphalt may be less visible to everyday users than other aspects of a construction project. Yet its functional role is crucial to the safety and overall impression of users, whether you’re building a road, a parking lot or a driveway. Potholes, cracks or poor grading creates a negative, and possibly unsafe, experience for customers, guests, residents and other users.
Ensuring a high quality asphalt installation is important to the project’s end result. Finding a balance between cost and value within the project’s budget, and determining how to get the most bang for your buck, are often key parts of project planning.
So what factors affect the cost of asphalt, and how can you be sure you’re getting the best deal and value?
