Difference Between Asphalt & Concrete – Basics & Typical Uses

Difference Between Asphalt & Concrete – Basics & Typical Uses

When dealing with pavement maintenance, there are two types of pavement that you probably already recognize as asphalt and concrete.

Believe it or not, these two types of pavement are more similar than you might think, and I am not talking about how they are both flat and you can drive on them, etc… That’s a given.  What I mean is that they both consist of roughly the same materials, with the differentiating factor being the binding agent.

Let’s break it down…  First we will take a look at asphalt.

Asphalt Sample

Asphalt Sample

Asphalt Cement Concrete (Commonly called asphalt) is made up of:
– Sand
– Rock
– Liquid Asphalt Asphalt Cement (Manufactured from Crude Oil)

Now let’s take a look at concrete.

Concrete Sample

Concrete Sample

Portland Cement Concrete (Commonly called concrete) is made up of:
– Sand
– Rock
– Portland Cement (Manufactured from Lime Stone)

As you can see in the closeup pictures, both samples contain sand and bits of rock with the difference being the binder.

Both asphalt and concrete have their strengths and weaknesses, and which one you choose to go with will be determined largely by the way that you plan to use it.

Typical Uses for Concrete Pavement
– Bridges
– Dumpster Slabs
– Airport Runways
– Streets & Highways
– Small Residential Driveways

Typical Uses for Asphalt Pavement
– Parking Lots
– Playgrounds
– Airport Taxiways
– Streets & Highways
– Large Driveways

DRYCO Green Practices

DRYCO Green Practices

The industry leader in recycling.

 DRYCO Construction, Inc. is big on recycling jobs. Whether for a patch repair or a total reconstruction job, we have taken the challenge to help our environment in every way possible. By becoming one of the leading recyclers of asphalt and concrete in the Bay Area, we’ve extended our commitment to earth-friendly practices to each of our customers.

 Our recycling process begins with high-powered crushers, screens, and conveyors that turn would-be landfill into usable building materials. The end product is a strong, long-lasting, coarse material that is tested and rated as class #2 base rock. We grind up all of the asphalt and concrete that comes off our jobs and reuse it for future projects.

 We also use other by-products, resulting in less haul-off and landfill refuse. Crews separate wood and metal from job site debris and place it in specified dumpsters for recycling at our facility. Many times, excess material like grindings can be reused on-site or moved to other sites to be used as sub-base material on DRYCO jobs.

 Soil is another material that we reuse as part of our Go Green approach. When a project has earthwork that requires us to haul off soil, we take it to our recycle yard and screen it into a usable sub-base material. We stockpile any soil with integrated organic material, allow it to decompose, and then use it as topsoil for landscaping purposes.

 DRYCO is always thinking of our environment when bidding asphalt paving and concrete repair jobs. We are the industry leaders in recycling and the only pavement maintenance company in the Bay Area that has its own in-house recycle facility.

 Bottom line: when you contract with DRYCO you are not only choosing the best, you’re choosing the greenest!

Parking Lot Repair Review

“Dryco recently performed a major repair on our commercial parking lot. The work was preformed in the accord with the estimate two lifts not one and completed on time and for the estimated price.  In the past they preformed a complete dig out replaced the base rock and asphalt it also was completed as above, this was more than 12 years ago.  They will be around to do the warranty work if any.”  David R., Fremont, CA
