Asphalt – Why You Should Consider it for Paving in Burnaby

  March 21, 2020


Want to get paving for your home, workplace, or organization in Burnaby? At Dhillon Bros Paving, we use asphalt on many of our projects because we feel it is a superior material for roads, driveways, parking lots, and sports courts.

Today, we’d like to take a lookat some of the advantages associated with asphalt. By the end, we’re pretty certain that this is the choice you will want for your paving in Burnaby.

Quick Drying

Compared to concrete, asphalt dries extremely fast. If you use asphalt for your paving in Burnaby, it will be dry in a matter of hours, as opposed to a matter of days. When was the last time you saw a kid’s tag scrawled in asphalt? That’s because it is already dry before they get the chance to deface the paving.

Low Maintenance

Asphalt doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. It should be swept and weeded if you notice plants growing around it. And small chips should be noted and taken care of at once, because these can grow to form much larger cracks. We can also add a new sealant to your asphalt paving in Burnaby to keep it fresh, but aside from this, little maintenance is needed.

Weather Resistant

Weather is often a concern for residents of British Columbia. In Burnaby, and the rest of the great Vancouver region, we experience a lot of rain. Asphalt is a material that is pretty resistant to rain and it handles itself well in the dryer summer months too. It expands in the heat and contracts in the cold, so it is less prone to cracking.

Great Value

This is one that often surprises people. Asphalt paving in Burnaby is generally cheaper than concrete paving, so if you choose it as a material for your paving project, you are not just saving time with the lack of hard maintenance involved, but you will also save money when you get it installed in the first place.

While we’re sure this has convinced you to use asphalt for your paving material in Burnaby, if you would like to learn even more about this material, feel free to give the team at Dhillon Bros Paving a call. We are experts on the topic and will be able to offer up plenty more advantages associated with asphalt paving in Burnaby and the rest of the Metro Vancouver area.
