What’s the Typical Life Expectancy of Asphalt?

Asphalt paving is a popular choice for any commercial property. Fortunately, with proper planning, materials, installation, and other factors, high-quality asphalt should last about 15 to 20 years. However, during that time, regular maintenance and repairs are vital. At ProZone Ltd. , we use the latest and greatest technology available, including materials like Mastic Asphalt which is more durable and more resistant to chemicals and wear. That’s why partnering with industry experts like ProZone Ltd. ensures that your asphalt paving is done correctly.

Factors that Affect Asphalt

To fully understand your asphalt’s life expectancy, we first need to determine some of the factors that can affect the pavement. Factors such as the following may extend or shorten the life of your asphalt:
  • Installation: Proper installation by a team of experienced trades professionals can extend the life of your asphalt. Installation requires proper attention to the soil underneath, edging, and current weather conditions.
  • Materials: The materials used to create the asphalt mixture can alter the lifespan of your asphalt. Asphalt made using recycled materials such as old asphalt, roof shingles, and plastic waste may help improve the asphalt’s condition and extend its lifespan. Mastic Asphalt is also a great option as it is more durable and chemical resistant than other forms of asphalt.
  • Traffic and Environment: Heavy vehicle traffic can slowly damage asphalt by causing dips or impressions on the pavement’s surface. Similarly, heavy rain, especially during installation, can negatively affect asphalt as it can break down the materials used.
  • Maintenance: Regularly maintaining and repairing your asphalt pavement before significant problems arise can extend the asphalt’s life expectancy. 

Investing in asphalt pavement for your Edmonton property is a significant decision; ensuring that investment continues to work for you guarantees that your property is safe and accessible.
