Our team stays up-to-date on the latest advancements and technologies in the road building and asphalt paving industries, including porous asphalt, recycled asphalt, patching and repairs, and resurfacing damaged asphalt pavement. What does all this mean for your project, and why should you choose asphalt?
Asphalt has numerous advantages over other paving materials. A properly installed asphalt driveway or road is expected to last up to 20 years, and even longer when you have a trained professional do routine preventative maintenance. Furthermore, while asphalt is durable and long-lasting, it is also cost-efficient, especially when compared to concrete. A square foot of asphalt averages around $3 while the same amount of concrete is double! Along with this, asphalt is easy to maintain and repair, so you can be assured that you will be getting your money’s worth with asphalt. It is the number one sustainable material for constructing pavement, and depending on who you ask, the only sustainable option.
Additionally, asphalt is the most recycled product in America, meaning you can rest easy knowing your project is being paved with long-lasting, cost-efficient materials that are environmentally friendly. It’s not just great for the planet though, using recycled asphalt also makes your pavement stronger and longer-lasting while remaining porous enough to drain water back into the ground.
Our Asphalt Paving Options
With all this in mind, WRS sets out to offer the best service and options for how your pavement projects operate. While asphalt is often considered a single material, there are several variations. Porous asphalt is one of our great options. It is environmentally friendly and an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) best practice paving option. Due to this, there is legislation in place in certain locations that offer tax benefits for using it on a paving project.
Recycled asphalt is another fantastic and environmentally friendly option that WRS offers. According to the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), 2.4 million metric tons of Co2e were spared from the atmosphere in 2019 alone through the use of reclaimed asphalt pavement in new mixtures. Recycled asphalt isn’t just environmentally friendly however, it is also one of the most cost-efficient options for everyone involved. Businesses save money by reducing energy, materials, and transportation costs; allowing the selling price to be lowered and saving buyers’ money in the process. Recycled asphalt can also be recycled multiple times, meaning that it will serve its purpose long after any individual project.
Some might worry that using recycled asphalt would damage the structural integrity of their pavement, however, it is the opposite. The way certain asphalt products, such as shingles, are recycled into pavement improves the overall quality of the pavement; making it stronger and more crack resistant.
