If you are thinking of repaving or renovating your driveway, there are many different materials you can use. As we have discussed, gravel is an excellent option for driveways. However, if you are looking for an eco-friendly, low-maintenance, and durable material for your driveway, you should consider using asphalt millings. Asphalt millings are bits of recycled asphalt that are byproducts of a pavement rejuvenation process of the same name. These small bits of asphalt are laid down and compacted with immense pressure to form a road or driveway. While asphalt millings are generally not suitable for streets that have lots of traffic, they work perfectly for driveways and small private roads. Here are three reasons why you should consider using asphalt millings for your driveway in Churchville.
Asphalt millings are incredibly eco-friendly and cost-effective. This is because they are a byproduct of another process and are 100 percent recycled. Not only are asphalt millings a recycled resource, but they also require fewer resources to prepare and install compared to hot mix asphalt. Millings produce a minuscule fraction of the dust, odors, vapors, and greenhouse gas emissions of hot mix asphalt, all at a reasonable price.
Driveways made of asphalt millings are relatively low-maintenance compared to surfaces made of some other materials. Millings do not need to be routinely raked or refinished, and the surface will actually harden over time. Weeds and grass will have an exceptionally difficult time growing through asphalt millings, leaving your driveway looking pristine even without upkeep. A well-installed driveway made of asphalt millings can add substantial value to your property.
Although millings are not bound together with piping-hot liquid bitumen like freshly-laid asphalt, they do have some of the same properties when compressed correctly. Asphalt millings can withstand Maryland’s severe weather and even help snow and ice melt faster. Your Churchville home’s newly-compacted driveway will harden over time, creating a solid surface for your cars to park and your children to play.
