Asphalt Paving

When it comes to driveway or parking lot paving, many individuals and business owners choose asphalt. Asphalt is a very convenient paving option, as it is strong, aesthetically pleasing, and quick to install! When the correct material is used, driveways and parking lots become a focal point for the home or establishment. Asphalt is the ideal choice for optimal driveability, appearance, and cost-effectiveness.



Benefits of Asphalt Paving:

  • Environmentally Friendly. Asphalt is actually the most recycled product in the USA! Recycled asphalt is even stronger than new asphalt, and has more rut resistance than new asphalt.

  • Sturdy and Long Lasting. Asphalt will last up to twenty years when installed by an experienced professional. It will last even longer with regular preventative maintenance!

  • Reduces Noise: Asphalt has open fine graded surfaces, which make it the quietest pavement option. The asphalt absorbs road noise!

  • Easy on the Wallet: In comparison to concrete, asphalt is very cost-efficient. It is a stronger, less expensive way to get your driveway, parking lot, or roadway paved.

  • Good Drainage: Asphalt is a porous material that allows water to drain through it. Asphalt can even be laid to help redirect water to grassy areas for ideal draining.

  • Safe Option: Asphalt has skid-resistant properties that make it ideal for unfavorable weather conditions. The dark color of the asphalt also attracts the sun, which assists with melting ice and snow during the colder months.

After choosing asphalt as the ideal paving option for your location, our professional team of Asphalt Paving Contractors in Framingham will be able to assist you in deciding which type of asphalt will work best for your particular location and the project at hand.


Typically, there are five types of asphalt that can be used for your paving project, including:

  • Course Asphalt: Asphalt graded as a course is most commonly used as a binder to give support to fine-graded mixes that are denser and utilized for lifting the surface of parking lots, roads, and driveways.

  • Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA): Hot Mix is created between  300-350 degrees, and can be used as a dense, fine grade, or course grade mix. This is the most utilized mix and is usually used for commonly used roadways, interstate routes, and highways.

  • Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA): Warm mix is created between a temperature of 200-250 degrees. It uses fewer fossil fuels than it’s hotter counterpart but needs more binding materials to assist with the pouring and spreading process. Mid-price point.

  • Cold Mix Asphalt (CMA): Cold Mix is not heated during creation, and can be mixed at any temperature without it affecting the product. It stays soft in colder temperatures and is ideal for water repellant. Cold mix is commonly used for pothole repair.

  • Porous Asphalt: This is the most environmentally friendly asphalt paving option. Stormwater is absorbed in tiny holes within the asphalt, and the water is led into the ground to participate in natural water cleaning processes. Sometimes, there are even tax benefits to using this option.

If you already have asphalt paving at your location and have seen it weather over time, there are repair options available in order to get the asphalt back to its original strength and appearance, including:

  • Sealcoating: To protect your asphalt paving solution against oil, water, fuel, traffic, and weather damage, seal coating is ideal. It is a simple and quick way to protect the asphalt and is typically applied every three to five years during the warmer seasons. Sealcoating is not done when creating a new asphalt paving solution, and should only be done on an older pavement in order to extend its lifespan. After a seal coating treatment, your asphalt will look sleek and dark; just as it did when it was first applied. Additional benefits include:

    • Reduction of long-term repairs.

    • Aesthetically pleasing.

    • Increases asphalt lifespan.

    • Melts ice and snow quicker.

    • Protects the asphalt.

  • Patching: Patching is done in order to fill potholes that have formed. Damaged asphalt is removed, the area is cleaned, the foundation is repaired, the hole is filled, and the new asphalt will be pushed down to ensure that it is flush with the old asphalt.

  • Crack Filling: A hot sealer is used to fill cracks that have formed in the pavement; reducing water damage. The sealer sticks to the asphalt and ensures that water and natural elements will not penetrate the pavement and create weakness. It is important not to wait too long to get cracks filled, as they get bigger with time and compromise the integrity of your asphalt.

  • Milling: In this process, the top layer of asphalt is removed. The subbase is reused, and the new asphalt is reconstructed. It is a quick process and is much more cost-effective than replacing the whole area. Benefits include:

    • Quick replacement.

    • Environmentally friendly; reuse of old materials.

    • Easy on the wallet in comparison to complete reconstruction.

Overlay: New asphalt is placed over your existing asphalt to ensure that it is working to the best of its ability, and to prevent any future damages that could occur to older asphalt surfaces. It is like a big patch over the entire asphalt surface to cover cracks, potholes, and other imperfections.
