To reinforce the asphalt paving, often it is recommended to place concrete curb and gutter/sidewalks. Pouring ahead of laying the asphalt allows formation of a barrier to hold the asphalt. Curb and gutter allows for direction of the water runoff. Thus, aiding in prevention of water puddling causing asphalt damage. The addition of curb and gutter can definitely add to the life of your paving.
At Hanrahan Asphalt Paving Company, we believe curb and gutter/sidewalks are also aesthetically pleasing as their straight lines appear clean and neat. Therefore, they can add to the value of your property through increasing the “curb appeal.”
