Asphalt & Paving
Tallmadge Asphalt / Paving Manufactures Its Own Asphalt
Unlike many other paving companies, Tallmadge Asphalt / Paving manufactures it's own Asphalt at its headquarters on Tallmadge Road in Brimfield, Ohio. This allows us to control the quality of the product that we are installing.
Asphalt is a mixture of sand, stone, and asphalt cement (a petroleum product). There are several different mixes of asphalt but some of the most common are 301 & ODOT 448 Type 1 & 2 (gravel or limestone). 301 uses a larger stone in the mix for strength but is very porous. ODOT 448 Type 1 & Type 2 are used for intermediate and surface courses.
The average driveway is installed using a 2" base layer of 301 asphalt and then a 1 1/2" top layer of ODOT 448 Type 1 for a smoother finish.
Advantages of Asphalt:
- Not affected by salt
- Cracks from freezing and thawing are not quite as noticeable, and can be resurfaced (over old asphalt or concrete), at sometimes 1/2 the cost of total replacement
- Asphalt can be driven on approximately 3 days after installation.
