Using Concrete and Asphalt Together?
When you are trying to decide on using concrete or asphalt for your driveway or paving project, there are a few instances where using both can offer great great results to your paving needs.
Concrete curbs can be installed at the edges of asphalt protecting their base. Using concrete curbs and edges offers protection from water as it can seep into the base of asphalt weakening overtime and causing damage and the need for repair work. The concrete curb can stop the water leakage from occurring and lesson the amount of repair work needed over time. Concrete curbs can also protect the edges of of asphalt from crumbling due to repeat vehicle traffic and weight.
Heavy Traffic can cause cracking and crumbling of your asphalt, especially in areas around dumpsters where heavy garbage trucks are common. Using Concrete Pads can help absorb the weight of the heavy loads brought on by this and also reinforces the asphalt. This is also a good place where semi traffic is common like loading docks as it will help keep the pavement level and sink less from heavy use.
Using Concrete for the base of an asphalt lay offers excellent advantages providing extra support for the heavy traffic that may be used.
