The primary use (70%) of asphalt is in road construction, where it is used as the glue or binder mixed with aggregate particles to create asphalt concrete. Its other main uses are for bituminous waterproofing products, including the production of roofing felt and for sealing flat roofs.
Asphalt pavements offer high skid resistance and provide high contrast in color between asphalt pavement and road markers, giving drivers better road visibility in any weather condition. Unharmed by ice and snow chemicals, asphalt’s dark color also reduces glare and melts ice and snow more rapidly than other pavement types. Open-graded asphalt, a special type of road surface, can minimize splash and spray during rainstorms and reduce crashes and fatalities on highways. Asphalt pavement materials also eliminate potentially dangerous and expensive pavement blowups.
There are benefits other than comfort with smoother roads whether they are concrete or asphalt. Roads that are smoother will be less bumpy hence cars will not cause as much damage on them because of the decrease in friction. Essentially, contractors will not have to spend more money on warranty repairs and their customers will be happier with longer-lasting roads. Thus, it is good for both drivers and the owners of the roads because they will both save money in the long run!
Asphalt Paving Nampa Services Offers you quality Asphalt construction services. Paved roads that allow for quicker travel and a smooth ride. Whether constructing a new pavement or preserving an existing one, asphalt meets many of today's needs in maintaining our extensive highway network in the United States.
Smooth roads aren’t just safer, they also save money. Reduced wear and tear on vehicles due to fewer bumps in the road brings down vehicle operating costs. Also, increasing a roadway’s smoothness by 25% extends its lifespan—upwards of 10 percent—which saves taxpayers money. Asphalt roads can be built more quickly and cost-effectively than other pavements as well, and they can be designed as a Perpetual Pavement that needs only periodic maintenance to remain in good shape indefinitely.

Paving is covering a surface with a firm material that makes it suitable for travel. Paving is often done on walkways, driveways, pathways, steps, and backyards to enhance the aesthetic appearance. Paving is usually done with brick, concrete, stone, tile, or limestone. Paving is an important landscape investment that is extremely beneficial in the longer run.
Commercial Paving & Municipal Paving
Asphalt is similar to concrete in the sense that both materials are popular for creating solid-surface driveways, plus they’re both made with stones (bits of rock) and sand. However, the binder that locks these materials together is very different – while concrete uses Portland cement, asphalt uses asphalt cement.
For any municipality, well-maintained sidewalks, roads, and streets are important to the safety of its residents, the local economy, and the ease of traffic flow.
That’s why municipal asphalt paving and repairs are a must, requiring the highest level of professionalism, strict adherence to timelines, and the minimum amount of inconvenience for local residents.
Sealcoating is critical to maintaining healthy pavement. Not only does it maintain flexibility and protect your pavement from the rain and sun, but it also extends the life of your pavement twice as long as pavement that has not been treated. Seal coating is a cost-effective way of repairing or surfacing the existing pavement, extending the life of the pavement and driveway. There are two main types of seal coating Squeegee (which can result in a streaky application) and Spray.
With exposure to the elements, asphalt pavement over time becomes faded in appearance. A fresh seal coat application enhances the appearance of asphalt, making it look and wear like new.
Sealcoating is typically done using one of two application methods: spray or squeegee.
Sealcoating accelerates the melting process of snow and ice on pavement surfaces. This helps to protect against water penetration, rain, frost, and snow damage.
Wear and tear on asphalt can be caused by many things such as overweight trucks, constant vehicle traffic, water, and age. As time goes by, the structural integrity of asphalt can weaken and fail – even without water or mechanical forces acting upon it.
Water and ice can easily get underneath the substrate of the asphalt and cause small cracks to turn into large potholes. If these problems aren’t quickly rectified, the entire asphalt lot could need to be replaced.
Regular maintenance and repairs sooner rather than later can save you on expensive replacement projects. There is no reliable way to estimate the cost of a pavement project until all the variables are known, including the depth of the asphalt to be poured. Many factors go into building and repairing parking lots
Pothole Repair and Crack Sealing
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! The cost of addressing minor issues through a preventive asphalt maintenance program is much less than addressing major deficiencies, such as potholes. Asphalt maintenance should be performed by a professional asphalt paving and repair company when roadways and parking lots are still in good condition. These services include crack sealing which can potentially stop or delay the formation of potholes since water intrusion cannot occur.
Crack sealing or crack filling depending upon how you refer to the procedure is an important step in extending the life of your asphalt. There are two common culprits in developing cracks in the asphalt.
First is base erosion. As the base settles beneath the asphalt surface and loses its integrity, cracks will form in the asphalt. It is important to seal those cracks with an appropriate crack sealant to reduce the negative effects of the cracks. If you do this within the first few years of the asphalt, you can reduce the severity of those cracks. By sealing these cracks, you will divert water to the berm of the asphalt instead of allowing the water to settle in the base which can cause more erosion.
Trench Repair and Utility Cut
Any utility cut, whether it involves a trench for a pipe or cable, or just a smaller “keyhole” opening, will require patching to match the surrounding pavement surface. Fundamentally, a patch will always reduce the structural integrity of the pavement to some degree, even if the patch is installed perfectly. However, many of the problems with patches are due to poor construction practices, so using the right techniques will make a big difference. A properly constructed utility patch should be able to perform comparably to the existing pavement that surrounds it.
Experience has shown that it is best to repair or restore concrete pavements with concrete. Proper utility cut restorations, constructed even with the surrounding pavement, provide a smooth transition that can withstand traffic loads without a future settlement. Flowable backfill, a material that solidifies in about four hours, and/or a fastsetting concrete mixture that can carry traffic in four hours or less can be specified; precast concrete panels might even be used to further expedite the most timesensitive utility cut restorations.
