Asphalt paving is the foundation of Hayden Paving. In addition to traditional asphalt paving, Hayden Paving also performs an alternative, cost-efficient method of asphalt paving called ‘chip sealing.’ Chip sealing is an excellent maintenance practice used to Preserve low traffic Public and Private Ranch Roads, Nursery Parking-Lots, Farms, Park Trails, and More.
Chip Seal, is a resurfacing process that starts with laying a base of hot, liquid asphalt binder to a prepared surface. Stone is then applied and rolled into the asphalt. The different looks that come from various stone choices make chip seal a unique style of paving. Stone choices include limestone, granite, slate, river rock, and others. By embedding stones into your asphalt, you can increase traction on slopes and high moisture areas. Because Chip Sealing is usually done on low traffic roadways, ranch roads, and driveways because of its low cost, quick installation time, and versatility.
Asphalt Surfaces are very versatile and long lasting. They can last 15-20 Years, with proper maintenance, and provide excellent value for the investment. Asphalt’s flexibility makes it perfect for areas with steep inclines, those prone to cracking, and cold weather environments. Compared to concrete, asphalt paving is cost and time efficient. Asphalt surfaces work well for both Residential and Commercial projects. Because installation can be performed in off-peak hours and during active construction projects, asphalt is an excellent choice for new construction, remodeling, and patching existing surfaces.
Why Choose Asphalt?
From an environmental standpoint, asphalt is the most recycled product in America. Hayden Paving recycles 100% of the asphalt removed from job sites. Not only does this help our environment, but it also allows us to deliver a superior product. Recycled asphalt mix is stronger, more durable, and longer-lasting than new asphalt.
When installed by an experienced asphalt contractor, asphalt driveways and roads can last 15-20 years. Regular and preventive maintenance will extend the life of asphalt surfaces.
Asphalt’s open and fine-graded surfaces allow the materials to absorb excess road noise, and is much quieter than concrete.
Asphalt is a cost-effective option for paving, especially when compared to concrete. While the fluctuation of crude oil prices can change the estimate of your job, asphalt is generally the most affordable option for large surface areas.
Asphalt materials are readily available and easy to manufacture, providing a quick turnaround on installations.
When drainage and standing water are a consideration, asphalt is the most flexible paving material. Permeable asphalt allows water to pass through the top layer into a specially prepared gravel base that filters it back into the ground. Water issues should be discussed during the initial project plan for best results.
Asphalt is a safe paving option. Since it handles water so well, asphalt provides excellent traction for vehicles and pedestrians. It also absorbs heat, speeding up the melt process for ice and snow.
Porous asphalt provides an environmentally-friendly way to manage stormwater. Due to the permeable nature of this mix, water travels into the ground beneath your paving surface and is dispersed by natural drainage. Porous asphalt is an environmentally friendly solution, considered by the EPA as best practice paving. Tax benefits are available for those choosing porous asphalt for their paving material.
Cold Mix Asphalt is used mostly for pothole repairs. It stays soft in cold temperatures and is water repellent. Because the manufacturing process is simple, cold mix asphalt can be crafted at most temperatures.
Hot mix asphalt is the most commonly used asphalt option. Also known as HMA, it’s the term used for asphalt mixtures that are heated and produced between 300-350 Degrees Fahrenheit. This type of mix is most commonly used for high-traffic roadways, interstates, and highways.
Warm Mix Asphalt is manufactured between 200-250 Degrees Fahrenheit. Also referred to as WMA, it is more affordable than HMA, and uses less fossil fuel than HMA but requires additional binding materials to assist with installation.
Typically used as a binder or base, Coarse Graded Asphalt gives support for fine-graded dense mixes. It’s a great option for surface lifts on parking lots, roads, and driveways.
