ASPHALT VS. CONCRETE
We provide both asphalt paving and concrete paving services! It’s important to know the difference between asphalt and concrete pavement, as one may suit your needs more than the other. Asphalt is a flexible surface. As expansion and contraction occurs, it is able to flex. This makes it very good for parking lots and roadways. Asphalt is also very cost effective for repairing. Concrete is a rigid surface and has many benefits. Concrete is good for situations that require supporting heavy weight like dumpster pads and loading docks. Each of these has their place in your project. Contact us today and we can come up with an option that works best for you.
Concrete is the long-lasting solution to your pavement needs. On average, it lasts 30-40 years when a proper maintenance schedule is followed. Concrete typically needs to cure for a week after it’s been installed, but it doesn’t need the sealing that asphalt needs (although sealing once every 5 years will prolong the life of your concrete). If you use the wrong de-icing products during winter, your concrete could suffer damage. The Columbus winters can take a toll on your concrete paving if you don’t consult the experts for a full consultation. If you’re looking to customize (stamp, color, stain etc.) your surface, then concrete is the best option. Contact us today for a full breakdown and comparison of asphalt and concrete!
We have years of experience installing asphalt pavement. One of the benefits of asphalt is that it can be driven on within 24 hours. This cuts down on time between completion of the project and your asphalt being ready for use. Asphalt also hides oil stains well, but it can be damaged by gasoline. Compared to concrete, asphalt is much cheaper to repair and patch, making it a great cost-effective option. It’s important to consult our experts when making this decision, as asphalt and concrete have many great benefits. The use of either can be determined by our experts for your specific paving project.
Concrete pavement is only as good as what’s underneath it. A solid foundation is necessary if you wish to achieve the longevity and sturdiness that concrete offers. The soil composition and compaction underneath your concrete needs uniformity to perform well. Concrete should never be paved over a bone-dry subgrade, so spraying it first to dampen is key. It’s also important to look for any soft spots in your soil and fill them in as necessary. Because there are so many important steps when setting up your subgrade, finding the right commercial concrete paving contractor will set you up for success. Trusting the experts at Tolliver & Curl is vital to setting a good foundation for your concrete.
The type of pavement that’s right for you depends on many factors. The climate you’re in, the level of traffic your pavement will receive, the budget you have all are important factors, among others. Getting a proper assessment done by concrete paving contractors is key to getting the right solution. It can be costly to pick the wrong product and can set your project back in terms of time and money. Contact us today to experience the Tolliver & Curl Paving difference.
