Asphalt contractors are hired to perform a number of different jobs. Asphalt is used in many different ways. It is a manageable and durable material and can withstand the abuse from vehicles. Both commercial contractors and homeowners can find a use for asphalt services. Andersen Asphalt & Striping would like to share some of the common uses for asphalt and its many applications.
Asphalt Parking Lots
Most people when they think of asphalt are thinking parking lots and roads. Parking lots are always made of asphalt and for many reason. The way concrete is installed is not effective for large areas. Where asphalt is used, it is poured and spread out much easier. Asphalt is much more affordable as asphalt uses recycled asphalt. Asphalt is also more Eco-friendly and can be easily maintained and repaired. For these reasons, asphalt is used for parking lots. Therefore, commercial and public centers will seek out asphalt contractors for their parking lots as all parking lots are made of asphalt.
Asphalt Roads & Highways
Asphalt is used for roads for the same reasons as parking lots. Roads stretch out for hundreds of miles across cities and states. Asphalt is easy to use and blends roads together. It is easy to repair, fast to install and more. This is why you will always want to use asphalt for roads. However, who is responsible for putting in our roads? When it comes to major city and state highways, the overseeing city and county is responsible for installing and maintaining the roads. However, if a property owner want a road installed on their property, it will be up to the owner to pay and maintain the roads. For communities that privatize their road, they are responsible for the areas their property touches.
Asphalt Driveways & Pathways
Our driveways and pathways connect to the road as do buildings and walkways. Most people assume driveways and pathways are for residential property only. However commercial property needs roads and pathways to access their buildings and parking areas. In some situations, concrete can be used over asphalt. Concrete driveways are very common especially in residential areas. However, asphalt is much easier to maintain and if you need to replace your driveway or walkway, you will find that asphalt is faster, cheaper and easier to maintain.
Asphalt Parks & Playgrounds
Parks and school playgrounds will often incorporate asphalt. Asphalt is often used for playground sections and in both schools and parks asphalt is preferred for the basketball courts. Homeowners can even seek out an asphalt contractor to lay as asphalt basketball court on their property. Recreational areas often find a use for asphalt.

There are no limits to asphalt. The city, county, business owner and even a homeowner can always find the need for asphalt. Asphalt not only is a flat and durable surface, it can also be painted. Parking lots and roads are not the only asphalt surfaces that can be painted. Schools can have their asphalt painted for various school yard games such as hopscotch or four square. If a homeowner wants asphalt poured and painted a certain way, be sure to see if the asphalt contractor can paint the surface for you.
