Should You Consider the Installation of a Reclaimed Asphalt Driveway?Feb 22, 2018
A reclaimed asphalt driveway can be a good idea if you’re considering a more affordable solution for your driveway. This approach to recycling old driveways and using up the old asphalt has been gathering an impressive level of popularity in the past 1-2 years, according to many homeowners and experts.
Here are just a few of the advantages of a reclaimed asphalt driveway installation:
- Installing a reclaimed driveway requires less manpower, fewer raw resources and less time to complete. As a result, it’s much cheaper than conventional driveway installation practices.
- Sometimes known as RAP (reclaimed asphalt pavement), reclaimed asphalt represents an excellent strategy for protecting the environment by reducing the demand for new asphalt.
- Loose-fill driveway materials have less tar than a recycled asphalt driveway. The latter is known to bond together much more easily, once it is moistened and compacted.
- Aside from being affordable, it’s also more durable than your average driveway construction. One of the main benefits of a reclaimed asphalt driveway is that it withstands rain and wind very well.
So, should you consider this solution? Despite some experts pointing to varying quality levels, many contractors can prove that they are able to minimize that problem through better quality control. So, as long as you can talk to an experienced contractor and get a good quote, a reclaimed asphalt driveway is one of your best options by far.
