Frequently Asked Questions

What is asphalt made of?

Asphalt is a mixture consisting primarily of a sticky, black, and highly viscous liquid or semi-solid form of petroleum, used as a binder, combined with aggregate particles like sand, gravel, and crushed stone. The combination results in a durable and flexible material suitable for paving. For asphalt repair needs, check out the QuikPave Products available now.

How long does asphalt take to cure?

The initial curing time for asphalt is about 24 hours, after which it can be driven on. However, complete curing can take up to a year, depending on environmental factors such as weather, temperature, and moisture. To aid in the curing process and ensure proper application, consider using equipment like a Hydraulic Storage Tank, Pump & Agitator System.

How much does asphalt cost?

The cost of asphalt can vary widely based on the size of the project, the type of asphalt mix, and the specific requirements of the job. Generally, it is considered a cost-effective option compared to other paving materials like concrete. For detailed pricing and estimates, contact Brewer Cote of Arizona directly.

Can asphalt be repaired if it cracks?

Yes, asphalt can be repaired when it cracks. The process typically involves cleaning the crack, applying a filler, and allowing it to set. Prompt repairs can prevent further deterioration and extend the life of the asphalt surface. Products like QuikJoint can be very effective for these repairs.

What is seal coating, and why is it important?

Sealcoating is the application of a protective layer, usually a coal tar emulsion, over the asphalt surface. This layer helps protect the asphalt from weathering, oxidation, and other environmental damage, while also providing a uniform appearance. For seal coating products, you can explore the Acrylic Coat, which offers UV protection, easy application, and fast drying.

How often should asphalt be sealcoated?

Asphalt should be seal coated every one to three years, depending on the amount of traffic and wear it receives. Regular seal coating helps maintain the surface and prolong its lifespan. Check out Brewer Cote's seal coating solutions for more information.

Can asphalt be installed over concrete?

Yes, asphalt can be laid over an existing concrete surface. However, considerations such as the stability of the concrete and the layout of expansion joints need to be addressed to ensure the longevity and performance of the asphalt layer. For expert advice and services, Brewer Cote of Arizona is a great resource.

What factors influence the cost of asphalt paving?

Several factors influence the cost, including the size and scope of the project, the type and thickness of the asphalt mix, and current oil prices, as asphalt prices are linked to crude oil prices. For a comprehensive estimate, you can request a quote from Brewer Cote of Arizona.
