Lawrence Asphalt Company’s Guide

What Is Asphalt Overlay?

This method is used for quickly repairing old parking lots, pathways, driveways, roads, etc, If you don’t have time or budget to make a new pavement, an asphalt overlay is your next logical choice.

When Do You Need This Service?

You need to overlay asphalt on your pavement when holes (usually 17-18 inches wide) and cracks start to appear on your pavement. The appearance of holes and cracks is inevitable because the pavement deteriorates as time goes by due to rain, sunlight, and snow. If you don’t repair this immediately, they become large and deep. This results in the unusable pavement.

You might also need this service when your pavement is too thin. Asphalt overlay might be used to thicken thin pavements and elevate them a bit. This is particularly useful if your house’s pathway or driveway is very shallow. A garage with a shallow driveway is troublesome because you’ll find it hard to park.

Finally, there are also others who get asphalt pavement to improve the look of their homes. Concrete pathways that are covered with a layer of asphalt look very neat. Aside from this, they’re safe to walk at because they don’t get slippery when wet.

What Are The Advantages of Asphalt Overlay?

1. Quickly Done

Asphalt overlay is done quickly. Of course, this might take longer if the area that’s about to be covered is large. However, this method is much quicker than making a new pavement. Therefore, this service is what you need if you’re planning to have a quick repair of your pavement.

2. Cheaper than Repavement

This method is much cheaper than repavement. On average, repavement costs from $7 to $13 per square foot. In contrast, asphalt overlay has an average cost of $3 up to $7. Going with these figures, it is twice cheaper than repavement.

3. Provides a Smooth and Non Slippery Surface

Overlaying concrete pavements with asphalt makes them smooth and nonslippery. This makes it safer for you to park your car in the garage or at the front of your house. Aside from this, it prevents people from slipping on your house’s pavement.
