Recycled asphalt is one of the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly materials for driveway construction. Recycling old asphalt is not only the smart choice from a cost perspective, but it’s also environmentally responsible. Asphalt is not biodegradable and without recycling is simply dumped onto landfills.
Taken from old pavements, driveways and roads, recycled asphalt is ground down to the size of aggregate. Since recycled asphalt still contains tar, it easily bonds together again to form a surface that is uniform, won’t kick up dust and stone chips, and is attractive. Not only this, but recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) is semi-permeable and prevents water and snow from pooling on the surface.
If you’d like to find out more about the benefits of RAP, and you’d like to get a quote on an RAP surface, give Roadstone Construction a call in Hamilton.
