Why Asphalt is a Great Choice for Trails and Sidewalks

Do you think sidewalks and trails need to be concrete? Think again. There are benefits to using asphalt for sidewalks and trails instead of concrete slabs. Here are some of the reasons you would consider asphalt for your next paved walkway.

Keep it Level

One of the issues that is common with concrete sidewalks is shifting and settling that causes uneven slabs. These can be dangerous for pedestrians and create injury liability. Asphalt has the advantage of a smooth surface without “slabs” that can sink or settle.

Fast and Affordable

Asphalt is quick to install and fast to cure – it can usually be ready for foot traffic in one to two days. Plus, asphalt is less expensive than concrete, which is nice on your budget. Install a new sidewalk or trail for less money and have it ready to use in just a few days.

Weather and Eco-Friendly

Asphalt is great in all weather, providing great drainage and quick melting for ice or snow. It is also eco-friendly – asphalt is 100% recyclable when it comes time to replace it.

Durable and Easy Maintenance

Asphalt can last for 20 years or more, requiring very little maintenance. Sealcoating can be done every few years to prevent cracks, giving the surface a new appearance.

If you own a business that needs paved walkways for customers, consider the advantages of using asphalt. Walking and biking trails can be beautifully paved with asphalt for less money, with low maintenance to keep them safe for many years to come. Contact your local paving contractor to discuss the option of creating new walkways with asphalt.
