Why Your Company Should Have Asphalt Sidewalks/Paths

October 19, 2018 1:49 pm Published by Leave your thoughts


If your business or property is in need of a new sidewalk, asphalt is the best option. From installation to safety, and functionality, there are several benefits of asphalt that you will not get with any other material. 

Easy Installation

Business owners are often hesitant to do any sort of construction, as they don’t want to cause a disruption to their store/restaurant. Any signs of construction can mean inconvenience and disruption, causing potential customers to be hesitant to come in. However, choosing asphalt will give you a quick turnaround, as they can be installed in a relatively short amount of time. Therefore, your sidewalk or path can be used sooner.


Asphalt has a long lifespan, anywhere between 12-35 years depending on weather conditions and other factors. When maintained properly, it can last even longer. Only the top layer will be removed and replaced when it starts to wear.  It is very affordable to upkeep, and will only need to be done every few years. Comparatively, when concrete pavement reaches near the end of its lifespan, it is a costly, time-consuming process to completely remove and replace.


Asphalt is also an optimal choice for safety. It’s typically smoother than other pavements, which is safer for runners or bikers passing by. The dark color of asphalt also reduces glare and helps to melt snow and ice in the winter.

Environmentally Friendly

Did you know the asphalt is the #1 recycled product in America? Asphalt is not only an optimal choice for us but for the environment as well. The nearly 100 million tons of asphalt that are recycled each year saves taxpayers over $1.5 Billion dollars. Using asphalt also helps to preserve natural resources, making the environmental footprint that much smaller.
