The Difference Between Asphalt and Bitumen

Asphalt and bitumen are very different. Firstly, asphalt is manufactured in a plant, transported and laid at a nominated thickness then compacted. Whereas, a bitumen seal is sprayed as a liquid, then covered with aggregate (stone) and rolled to bed the aggregate into the bitumen. The bitumen seal process can be repeated to give a two-coat bitumen seal.

5 Things to Know Before Getting a Bitumen Driveway


The Benefits Of Having an Asphalt Bitumen Driveway

Due to its composition and elemental makeup, asphalt holds a variety of advantages over other popular surfacing materials such as concrete, pavers, gravel and recycled (profiled) asphalt. Throughout the years, we have been helping countless families and businesses surface and re-surface their properties thanks to the durability, affordability and reliability of asphalt resurfacing.

Often used across car parkslarger driveways and semi-rural areas throughout Perth, asphalt is often a preferred surface due to its relatively low cost. Asphalt doesn’t require expansion joints and can often be installed without the removal of old pavement, making it a lot easier to install and maintain. Other pavements such as old brick paving and concrete need to be demolished and replaced in full. With easy installation and maintenance comes a level of affordability which makes surfacing or resurfacing an asphalt bitumen driveway a popular choice throughout Perth.
