Driveway Asphalt Overlay

Apply a New Layer of Asphalt

Have an existing driveway that needs some repairs? An asphalt overlay could be what you need. Instead of removing your entire driveway base and repaving, an asphalt overlay is just covering your existing asphalt with a new layer of fresh asphalt. Overlays are intended to extend the life of a driveway at a fraction of the cost of a new blacktop driveway from the base up. If your driveway base in good condition but your asphalt is just showing signs of age, an asphalt overlay is for you.

Benefits of an Asphalt Driveway

Why choose an Asphalt Driveway

When it comes to installing a new driveway or upgrading your gravel driveway, asphalt is the choice of homeowners in Southern Indiana. Also referred to as a blacktop driveway in the Louisville, Ky area, asphalt is the most affordable solution to a solid surface driveway. Homeowners have other choices, like concrete, but the price and maintenance of concrete usually turns people to installing asphalt. Not to mention that concrete can not withstand salt during the snow and ice events in Kentuckiana.

Affordability is the biggest factor for homeowners. An asphalt driveway typically runs around $2 – $4 a square ft. While concrete comes in around $7 – $9 per square ft. The price increases up to $15 as you add color and stamping. Concrete is a solid choice if you can afford it, but asphalt wins in the price category.

Another benefit of an asphalt driveway is the ability to repair cracks and rejuvenate its looks with sealcoating. Cracks in asphalt can be filled with hot crack filler. A product that is made from the same material as the actual asphalt. There is no solution for cracks in concrete except a silicone caulk.

So when you are planning to pave your driveway and price is your main concern, asphalt is the solution. When you want a stylish pattern and price is not a concern, concrete may be the option for you.
