Newark Blacktop vs Asphalt
What is blacktop anyway, and how is it different from asphalt? Both asphalt and blacktop surfaces are made by mixing two primary ingredients: crushed stone and bitumen (a petroleum based material commonly used in roofing shingles).
The difference between the two is found in the quantity of each ingredient used in the mixing. Asphalt is used most frequently for high traffic roadways, frequently traveled by heavy trucks, and contains a much higher percentage of bitumen. Blacktop surfaces in Newark are more commonly installed for residential driveways, bike paths and small commercial projects. It contains a higher percentage of crushed stones and much less bitumen. Tom McDonald Contracting specializes in sealing blacktop in Newark and asphalt throughout the area. Call (302) 219-7939 for a great price to seal yours!
Benefits of Blacktop Sealcoating in Newark
Many homeowners ask us if concrete or blacktop is a better material to use on a driveway surface. It often comes down to personal preference. Concrete as a material for driveways and walkways does have its advantages. Although often more expensive to install, concrete can be more attractive, especially when stamped concrete is used to create interesting designs. However, concrete cracks and chips and is not as easily repaired and maintained.
Blacktop surfaces are heated to a high temperature during the mixing stage. Blacktop can withstand harsh temperatures and weather conditions, and it tends to be more durable than concrete. Although it also cracks and chips as a result of harsh weather conditions, Newark blacktop is easy to maintain, because it can be repaired and resealed season after season at a fairly low cost.
