5 Benefits of Using Asphalt

Asphalt paving is 100% Recyclable

Asphalt is America’s most recycled material – it’s currently recycled at a rate of over 99%. The asphalt industry reuses and recycles nearly 100 million tons of asphalt every year. If you dig deep into the topic You will see the environmental impact of recycling. For example, used asphalt does not end up in landfills, new rocks do not need to be mined, oil and greenhouse gas emissions did not need to be produced.  Overall recycling is great.

Asphalt is cost-effective and fast to install

Asphalt is generally a lot cheaper to install than any other type of paving material, especially concrete. For example, a Concrete Driveway will cost double (or more) the price of Asphalt.

Asphalt Lasts

In Michigan Asphalt Paving should last between 15 and 20 years.  When properly maintained asphalt can last more than 30 years. Here at Global Asphalt Solutions we regularly maintain driveways that look great after 20+ years.

Water Drainage

Your asphalt pavement will last for a very long period if correctly drained. Water that is allowed to pool on asphalt pavement surface due to improper drainage is highly detrimental. Without adequate drainage, pooled water from snow and rain can cause damage to the asphalt. Global Asphalt Solutions knows how to do it right.

Low noise pollution

This benefit of asphalt is often overlooked. Asphalt is great at absorbing sound.  Asphalt can reduce road noise by 3 to 10 dB. You might not think that is a lot but turn off your radio next time your driving down the highway.
