3 Benefits of a Paving Resurfacing

Beginning a repaving project can be a daunting prospect. It can be complex, time-consuming, and expensive. Fortunately, some of these worries can be reduced by choosing to resurface your paving instead.

This method lays new paving material on top of the pre-existing surface. If the structural integrity of the already laid pavement is sound, resurfacing can be beneficial and make for a superior finished project. Resurfacing can be applied to both driveways and paths, which makes it a perfect solution.

We’ve highlighted 3 advantages to homeowners, businesses and contractors alike, by choosing to resurface your paving instead of replacing it.

Resurfacing is much more cost-effective than replacement

One of the biggest concerns when starting a new paving project is the cost associated with it. Paving from scratch can be quite expensive. However, pavement or driveway resurfacing is much more cost-effective. If the original paving has become cracked and worn and looks in need of replacing but is structurally fine, resurfacing the paving can be a great choice.

Putting aesthetically pleasing paving overworn or cracked existing areas can be a fantastic way to improve the overall look of the project at an affordable price. The amount of raw material needed for resurfacing is diminished and the cost is much lower making the entire project more affordable.

The process is much quicker, saving you time

Resurfacing is much more friendly on a project’s timeframe. The amount of work that it takes to lay paving over an existing surface is greatly reduced. This means that time can be freed up for other parts of a major renovation project, or that the project can be completed in a shorter amount of time. Resurfacing is the perfect solution for jobs that need to be finished on a strict or quickly approaching deadline.

It can be environmentally friendly

By choosing a porous paving material for your resurfacing project, you can help build a more sustainable and eco-friendly future. Due to the components of our green paving material, water can be collected in a drainage channel and returned to the water table or used on site. This makes good use of resources and can also be beneficial to the project.

Another wonderful fact is that there’s very little waste being hauled off to our landfills, making resurfacing with a porous material much more environmentally friendly all-round when compared to traditional paving methods.

Conclusion

Resurfacing is cost-effective, time-saving, and environmentally friendly. It is definitely worth considering for your next paving project. For more information, or to find out how StoneSet can work for you, please feel free to contact us.
