When it comes to the surfaces of outdoor areas, you need to think smart. Whether it’s for tennis court constructions, driveways, or paths, you should choose a surface that will survive the test of time and the worst weather conditions.
This is especially true in Ontario, where you’re faced with storms, snow and hot summer days. You need a surface that can be pretty and practical – like asphalt!
To help you make your choice, we’ve put together the top reasons why our customers chose asphalt for their outdoor surfaces.
When it comes to braving the cold, asphalt is your best friend! Why? Because it withstands extreme cold, snow, products used to melt ice, and rainfall that would crack and damage concrete or bricks.
Asphalt is permeable, meaning it has excellent drainage – unlike clay, grass or concrete. Water will flow freely through it, rather than pooling around it and causing cracks or soil erosion. It’s also highly skid-resistant and carries weight better than concrete does. This makes it perfect for basketball or tennis court constructions, driveways and even roofs!
Let’s be honest, although most surfaces need some form of maintenance, you don’t have time for needy materials! Luckily, asphalt won’t ask too much from you for a couple of years. When it does, it’s much easier to repair than concrete. In fact, for smaller repairs, you can do cold patches yourself!
You can even strengthen the longevity of asphalt by resurfacing it, and only every five years or so! It’s as easy as that. This makes it ideal for outdoor surfaces, as most paving would need continuous maintenance to help it withstand the elements.
Need a quick fix? Asphalt can be used, even driven on, within a day or so! This depends on the temperature outside. But, it’s still a much faster process than concrete, which is poured in multiple stages and takes longer to cure!
Now that you’ve seen the evidence, you’re likely sold. But there’s more! You can customize everything from decorative finishes to colour and cushioning, making it the best choice for tennis court construction, outdoor recreational areas, driveways and more. But, you’ll need experienced professionals to enjoy these perks.
