El Paso County Asphalt FAQ

Technically, asphalt is black. When the aggregates or stones are mixed with asphalt cement, the material immediately turns black. As time goes by and as the asphalt starts to oxidize, the aggregate coating will eventually start to break down and the real color of the stone slowly show. This reaction could lead to a grayish color on the asphalt if the manufacturer used light colored aggregate.

Just like with other parts of your home or property, it will always be cheaper to repair damaged areas of your driveway when they are still minimal. Ignoring them will expose your driveway to bigger damages in the future which can cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars to repair.

Generally, you can drive on asphalt after 2 to 3 days from the date it was installed. But, you should be careful because the curing period of asphalt is 20 to 30 days.
