Let Road Tech Paving’s pavement experts explain some of the industry secrets about asphalt driveways in Arizona.

Asphalt Driveway Paving in Arizona

In hot, sunny areas like Arizona, improper asphalt installation can result in catastrophe. Sunlight can break down asphalt, causing it to dry out and turn brittle. Hot temperatures can literally melt petroleum-based asphalt too, and bits of pavement can crack off and stick to tires or shoes! This is why you need experienced local paving contractors who can custom mix your asphalt as well as provide top-notch maintenance services to protect your driveway.

How long before I can drive on new asphalt driveway in Arizona?

Because most asphalt paving work is done during dry (and hot) months, homeowners can be worried that their new asphalt driveway will melt. To minimize problems with softened asphalt, it’s important to wait until it cures before using it. Generally, asphalt will harden within 24 hours, so you can walk on it, but it doesn’t fully cure until 72 hours, so it’s best to wait three days before parking on a new driveway.
