Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Fall is in the air and winter will soon be upon Pennsylvania residents. However, there’s still plenty of time before the autumn season ends for homeowners and business owners to pave, reseal, and maintain their asphalt driveways and parking lots.
Asphalt is a popular choice for driveways, especially in colder climates. The recyclable, economical material is created from a mixture of concrete and petroleum which makes it both tough and flexible.
“Asphalt is a durable weather resistant material that can withstand the harshest of winters and can last many years,” says JR, president of JR Paving and Construction. “However, it’s important to hire a qualified and experienced paving contractor for installation. The surface must be prepared properly to achieve the desired results.”
Here are five reasons asphalt is a great choice for the winter months:
1. Asphalt is made to withstand freezing and thawing.
2. Although salt can damage concrete driveways, asphalt is unaffected. “When exposed to de-icing chemicals or salt, asphalt doesn’t break down so there aren’t any worries in the winter,” JR explains.
3. The dark black color of asphalt absorbs sunlight and helps melt ice and snow.
4. Snow can be plowed, blown, or shoveled unlike gravel driveways.
5. An asphalt driveway grade can be controlled so water drains off, improving traction and making winter navigation less hazardous.
