The short answer is usually no. The beautiful thing about asphalt is that it lends itself easy repairs. As with any hard surface, with age and use some deterioration during the life-cycle is to be expected. Providing it was laid correctly in the first place, asphalt repairs typically mean tending to cracks as they occur and properly filling potholes when they appear. Unlike concrete, this can usually be done without digging up the whole area and then having to deal with large blocks of concrete that make their way into landfill. Of course, an occasional resurface will also help to keep your asphalt areas looking beautiful as well.
