Residential Asphalt Contractors In Your Area

"APAK was the first company to return my inquiry for an estimate. Rebecca set the appointment and was at my house promptly. She did a very thorough job of estimating, and made some helpful suggestions. Neil and his crew were on time, and worked professionally and diligently for the two days to remove gravel, grade the lot, and pave it with asphalt. The edges are beautiful, the rain runoff is perfect, and best of all, my wife loves not driving on the gravel driveway. I've received many compliments on how nice the driveway looks and how thick it is. APAK did a great job. Definitely not the cheapest, but the entire team is engaged to make sure that you receive the full value of your purchase. Highly recommended. "

Concrete driveways can start to develop cracks from harsh weather. That's why more and more people are turning to asphalt driveways. Asphalt can better withstand extreme temperatures without cracking. It is also becoming popular in warm regions.

Whether for a driveway, path, basketball court, or some other surface, asphalt offers other advantages including:

  • It is typically less expensive than concrete - $2 to $5 per square foot vs. $3 to $10 per square foot for concrete
  • It can be driven on almost immediately.
  • It is easire to repair. Cracks and holes can be filled and sealed.
  • Oil leaks are not as noticeable

Hiring local asphalt contractors can do more than save you money on materials and transportation costs. Local companies know about the local soil and how to install driveways with good drainage and a strong foundation. This is important because the wrong process makes your driveway vulnerable to shifting, droughts, and sudden rainfall. Look for asphalt installation companies that can also reseal and resurface your driveway to help keep it looking good over the years.
