Asphalt is mostly used to pave driveways in many homes. It is affordable and can only cost around $3 to $4 per square foot. Choosing asphalt as a pavement solution is not only economical and practical, but its durability can withstand harsh weather conditions too. Asphalt in Portland is mostly used by many homeowners living in cold regions, as compared to concrete, because of its ability to adapt to temperature changes. Concrete, on the other hand, has the tendency to crack when exposed to a temperature below freezing point. This could be very costly to repair for homeowners.

Is there any available color for asphalt in Portland other than black?

Technically, asphalt is black. When the aggregates or stones are mixed with asphalt cement, the material immediately turns black. As time goes by and as the asphalt starts to oxidize, the aggregate coating will eventually start to break down and the real color of the stone slowly show. This reaction could lead to a grayish color on the asphalt if the manufacturer used light colored aggregate.

How soon can I drive on my new asphalt driveway in Portland?
