Rural driveways can be constructed using different materials such as asphalt, concrete, gravel or paver.
Asphalt is the most common driveway material used here in Australia and it is also known as black top, macadam or tarmac driveways - all these different names refer to the one and the same material ‘Asphalt’ driveways. Although asphalt is popular in hotter regions, it is also ideal for colder regions because the black colour absorbs the sun’s heat. Asphalt has been used on our roads and aircraft runways for a while. Opting to install a new driveway is a major concern and a majority of the homeowners may just do it once in the entire life of a property. Thus, selecting asphalt material for your driveway involves a few major considerations that include curing time, repairs and maintenance, durability, budget and appeal.
Curing Time: Asphalt driveways can be finished faster, which is the prime reason it is used nearly for all road construction projects. It also has the capability to endure a high amount of traffic. As soon as the cooling and drying process gets finished, asphalt driveways can be used.
Repairs & Maintenance: Asphalt material is strong and lasting and if cracks appear, they can be repaired effortlessly. If an asphalt driveway gets damaged, it can be simply re-layered. Thus, maintaining asphalt driveways is a breeze.
Budget: Asphalt is a mix of bitumen and the aggregates. A derivative of crude oil, bitumen can be fused with the aggregates to create a driving surface that is smooth and flat. As the material used to create asphalt is less expensive than other materials, generally asphalt driveways cost lesser.
Durability: An asphalt driveway would last for several years with a professional installation and maintenance.
Appeal: Asphalt will surely augment your driveways. Asphalt driveways provide a clear and smooth look, which will appeal to the visitors.
Oil Leaks: It is not good to see oil leaks on your driveway; however, these stains will be covered because an asphalt driveway is black.
Weather Conditions: Asphalt has the ability to expand and contract according to the changing weather conditions, such as when heating up or cooling down. Asphalt can withstand repeated changes in temperature and easily adjusts and flexes back to its original form because asphalt is made of an oil based substance.
In A Nutshell on Choosing Asphalt for Your Driveway
Asphalt driveways are an attractive and cost-efficient solution for your driveway. It can be repaired easily and so it’s easy to maintain. Typically, asphalt driveways are more affordable than other materials and also more enduring. If you have a steep or long gradient driveway, asphalt driveways are a great solution.
Concrete is a very adaptable material that can be used to develop pavers for the driveway and can accomplish an array of looks to match the style of a property. The major considerations are:
A gravel driveway is formed of loose aggregate with edges of wood, concrete or other material to keep the driveway enclosed. The loose aggregate can differ in colour and size of the individual stones. The gravel driveway material has better durability and is a more affordable option. Especially for home driveways, extra residential car parking areas or commercial car parking areas - gravel driveways have always remained a popular choice here in Australia. Regular maintenance once or twice a year will be needed for a gravel driveway. As it’s economical in nature and easy to install, gravel is perfect for larger parking spaces and longer drives as well as for rural areas.
Good driveways assist in enhancing the entire look of your property. Using varied driveway pavers, you can create different kinds of driveways. Every driveway paver type comes with its own unique features. The different driveway pavers are:
Concrete driveway pavers are widely used and are also affordable. They are available in varied styles, colours and designs. They are durable and add value to your property.
