In some cases, recycled asphalt can be resurfaced with new asphalt to give a better long term result. This depends on the original standard of workmanship and quality of recycled materials used. It can sometimes be swept to remove loose waste on the surface, potholes and low areas filled with new asphalt, then a 30mm – 50mm thickness laid on top to give a brand-new appearance.
If the recycled surface has bound itself up into large sections with extensive loose material surrounding, this may not be re-surfaceable with new asphalt. One of our experienced staff members can visit your site to inspect the area and offer free no-obligation advice.
The Benefits of New Asphalt
Although the process of recycling asphalt yields a product which is generally cheaper and more environmentally friendly, new asphalt is superior in every other department. Fresh asphalt ensures colour and quality is consistent, making it the more reliable material, requiring minimal maintenance compared to recycled asphalt.
New asphalt is an ideal choice when it comes to installing a new driveway for residential or commercial use. Recycled asphalt is not as evenly-coloured as traditional new asphalt. Plus, the quality of recycled asphalt is often pitiful depending on how it’s recycled and it’s source. Most recycled materials will be contaminated with road markers, unsealed base material and other foreign objects.
Therefore, business and homeowners often prefer the attractive look and deep colour of fresh and non-recycled driveways as well as their durability for vehicle traffic, weather conditions, no loose material on its surface and easier water run-off/drainage.
