Asphalt or concrete?

Trying to decide between asphalt or concrete? For lasting durability asphalt always wins out over concrete. It is not only easier to maintain, looks better and performs better under heavy loads, it also does not have the "slip factor" present in concrete. Not convinced? Try walking on concrete that has been exposed to moisture or continued rain. Chances are it will be slippery. Don't risk the slide. Get asphalt instead. Call Budget Asphalt now.

It's time to get those potholes filled

Potholes in asphalt don't fix themselves. If left untended they will cause further deterioration of the surrounding asphalt and increase the hazard risk, as well as increasing the risk of damage to both vehicles and pedestrians. No matter whether a pothole is on private or public areas they need to be fixed. Call Budget Asphalt now for a quick quote on pothole repairs.

Will my asphalt withstand heavy loads?

When preparing an asphalt surface is vital to determining how much weight your asphalt will be subject to. Will it carry heavy trucks? Or maybe just pedestrian traffic? For asphalt to perform to its best, the road base must be compacted properly and the subgrade laid to the correct depth. Failure to properly lay asphalt for its intended purpose may result in costly repairs down the track. Get it done right the first time. Call us now!
