As our name suggests, STL Asphalt Paving specializes in using asphalt to create attractive and functional paved surfaces. However, we also offer chip seal paving as an alternative option to our customers in St. Louis and surrounding areas. This means providing a variety of durable and affordable paving choices to suit a variety of tastes and price points.
What Is Chip Seal?
A chip seal driveway, also known as a tar and chip driveway, is created using a unique blend of traditional pavement and fine aggregate. The result is a highly textured surface that has the look of natural stone. This can be a great choice if you want more traction than traditional blacktop, or if you simply prefer the look of chip seal paving.
Benefits of Chip Seal Paving
There are many benefits to opting for a chip seal driveway rather than an asphalt driveway. On top of the beautiful, stone-like appearance and improved traction mentioned above, additional benefits include:
- Reasonable installation cost
- Minimal maintenance
- No need for annual sealcoating
Not only can you install a chip seal driveway for an affordable price, but you can also look forward to cost savings down the line since you don’t have to spend time or money on yearly maintenance. Give our team at STL Asphalt Paving a call to find out more.
Know Your Driveway Options
At STL Asphalt Paving we want you to have access to various driveway options. We are also committed to helping you make the best choice for your property. Although chip seal driveways are generally durable, they are more prone to cracking and breaking if they’re put through a high volume of traffic or frequent cycles of freezing and plowing. For these reasons, we don’t recommend a chip seal surface for everyone. Give our team a call today to find out if a chip seal driveway might be a good choice for you!
