Benefits of Using Asphalt Millings

Did you just build a shed or home on your property, and the grass or sand driveway just isn’t cutting it? Here in central Florida, your gravel driveway is made with asphalt millings. Creating asphalt millings involves crushing recycled asphalt in a way that, when spread and compacted about 4 inches thick, begins to re-solidify as the sun and traffic continue to do its thing. 

Asphalt millings are eco-conscious and the most beneficial of all the non-solid surface driveway materials. Don’t believe us? See for yourself!

Why You Should Consider Asphalt Millings:

Asphalt Millings are Cheaper in Cost

Recycled asphalt millings are known to be significantly lower in price compared to using hard surface materials like concrete, asphalt, or pavers. However, millings are slightly more expensive than crushed concrete or limestone. As with all things, you get what you pay for. 

Durable

Believe it or not, asphalt millings are very durable, even more than gravel. Most asphalt millings contain tar and oils from the original asphalt processing, which aids in bonding when exposed to rain, heat, and pressure. Plus, an asphalt millings driveway reduces dust and looks quite nice, almost like pavement.

Asphalt millings hold up exceptionally well in harsh weather conditions. The material percolates to prevent pooling and flooding and resists erosion.

Low Maintenance Involved

There is no need to worry about upkeep if you choose an asphalt millings driveway. These driveways require no refinishing, resurfacing, or replacing under normal use. Plus, over time, asphalt millings strengthen because of its excellent bonding qualities. It is guaranteed to last you for years!

If you experience a situation where you need your driveway surface smoothed, it’s a simple process with our land plane attachment and tractor. 

Great for The Environment

Recycling asphalt is good for the environment since we are making use of salvaged road waste. Much of asphalt’s raw materials are not native to central Florida, so the cost of manufacturing asphalt pavement is quite high. Millings are recycled in Hernando and Hillsboro counties, so trucking to our service area is kept to a minimum.
