Driveway Paving: Asphalt vs Chip Seal
What do these options consist of?
Chip sealing refers to a process of paving that involves laying down a thin layer of asphalt and then layers of large aggregates like crushed stone that are compacted.
Asphalt, also known as blacktop, is a dark black petroleum based substance that’s liquid while hot and flexible when cured. It’s mixed with aggregates for stability.
Benefits of Driveway Chip Sealing
Cost Effective – Chip sealing is cheaper than asphalt paving.
Design Versatility – Paving contractors can use different colors and types of stone on top of the driveway, allowing for different colors and looks.
Cooler – Since it’s not dark black in color, a chip seal driveway doesn’t absorb sunlight and get hot.
Benefits of Asphalt Driveways
Durable – A well-constructed asphalt driveway can last up to 20 years or longer with proper pavement maintenance.
Attractive – As asphalt matches the street, it adds a classy element to your residential property.
High ROI – Your return on investment for asphalt is high, as it not only lasts a long time but adds to your residential property values.

At Tri County Asphalt, we don’t just pave parking lots. As a local business with ties in California communities like Lemoore CA, Tri County Asphalt is happy to keep local drivers safe by keeping city streets in good condition. Roadway paving presents special challenges and takes special care, but our experienced and licensed paving contractors are proud to be there for our neighbors, keeping roads safe with asphalt repair and maintenance services.
The roadway in Lemoore CA was suffering from some common forms of pavement aging and asphalt damage that occur of the life of the pavement, but the Tri County Asphalt has over 25 years experience with road paving services. Our pavement assessor was able to diagnose the problem and recommend the most efficient and cost effective asphalt services to combat the damage to the road.
At the Lemoore CA project site, our crew performed hot crack fill services, injecting hot asphalt emulsion into cracks in the asphalt to bind it back together. Next, we applied asphalt sealcoating over the road surface to seal in the crack filler and protect the surface from wear and tear. Sealcoating is a great way to improve and protect pavement, extending its life for years.
Whether you have a private roadway on a commercial property or a long driveway on a residential property, you need to stay on top of pavement maintenance to make sure your asphalt stays in good condition and keeps drivers safe.

In Fresno CA, Tri County Asphalt is the most trusted asphalt paving company for residential property owners, commercial property owners, and property management firms alike. With over 25 years of experience in the asphalt paving industry, we can tackle even the worst deteriorated pavement using only the highest quality products and the most advanced pavement repair methods. We were recently contacted by a property management firm about a parking lot on a multifamily residential property. Their asphalt was, put simply, old, since it had been in place for over 20 years.
The sad fact is that no matter how well your parking lot is installed or how many asphalt repair and pavement maintenance services you perform over its lifespan, asphalt pavement will break down over time. But how? Sunlight leeches important chemicals from the asphalt, weakening it. Tires wear away the surface, exposing the aggregates like gravel inside the asphalt. Water flows into minute cracks in the pavement, then freezes and cracks it. When the ice melts, the water leaves the cracks, washing away bits of asphalt, weakening it further. Then, like our Fresno CA parking lot, you’re left with brittle, cracked, gray pavement.
After a thorough pavement inspection and a consultation, we determined the best way to fix the parking lot was to remove and replace the asphalt. This sounds like a long, difficult job, but the Tri County Asphalt team got the job done quickly, removing and replacing 1,000 tons of asphalt!
If your asphalt has reached the end of its life, it’s time to call the best paving company in Fresno CA, Tri County Asphalt.
Some asphalt paving projects are more complicated than others, depending on the pavement age and damage. At an apartment complex in Bakersfield CA, Tri County Asphalt recently tackled a paving project that presented some challenges. Their parking lot asphalt was failing; it had cracks, potholes, and deterioration in different areas. There were also covered parking areas that had support beams installed in the asphalt that our crew had to work around.
If there’s any asphalt paving contractor that’s equal to a complicated job, it’s the trained and dedicated paving crew at Tri County Asphalt! An asphalt expert was available to get out to the apartment complex right away. After a thorough pavement inspection, we discussed the work with the property owner and decided that repaving the parking area would be more cost efficient than asphalt patching, crack filling, and sealcoating various damaged areas.
While it may sound more involved to completely demolish and repave asphalt, it is the best way to bring a parking lot back to full function if there are lots of potholes or cracks. Deterioration of asphalt can get into the base layer, making it unstable, so it can be more efficient to remove damaged pavement and lay down new asphalt. This is what we did at the Bakersfield CA apartment complex.
The property manager loved their new, smooth asphalt parking lot and was impressed that we were able to work around the covered parking structures. We also made sure that the parking area had drainage so that it wouldn’t get waterlogged. If you need asphalt repair, know that Tri County Asphalt is the right one to call!
At Tri County Asphalt, we’re proud to help clients in and around the San Joaquin Valley California with their asphalt paving needs. We were recently contacted by a property manager in Bakersfield CA about their parking lot, which had begun to deteriorate, especially in the driving lanes. They needed some paving work done, but they were worried about a couple of factors: scheduling the work during off-peak hours and preventing their covered parking area from getting damaged.
The dedicated Tri County Asphalt crew was happy to work around their schedule to get work done while minimizing interruptions to their business and damage to areas of whole asphalt. We also assured them that we could make a seamless repair of their damaged pavement to make their whole parking lot look good as new and cohesive.
After a thorough pavement inspection, we determined that a full asphalt replacement needed to take place. Sometimes, asphalt resurfacing services can save damaged pavement by replacing just the top few layers of asphalt. However, these services don’t work on pavement that has developed deep cracks or problems with the gravel base layer.
After scheduling the work for a time when the business was closed, the expert Tri County Asphalt contractors got to work. First we removed damaged asphalt and hauled it away for recycling, and then applied high quality asphalt to the prepared surface for a brand new parking lot. Our Bakersfield California client was very pleased with their new asphalt, especially the scheduling and respect for their property.

At TriCounty Asphalt, we strive to exceed the expectations of our clients with affordable paving options, and we recently got to do that for a new client in Porterville CA. A ranch owner had a problem with their roadways and a parking lot that was paved with gravel. This customer needed to control dust and mud kicked up by their roadways, and they wanted a stable driving surface to keep vehicles safe.
We answered their phone call immediately and quickly got out to the property to inspect it. Then we consulted closely with the property owner to determine the best solution to their roadway woes while staying within their budget. Turns out, our SteelRoad Chip Seal process solved their dust and mud problems for a fraction of the cost of asphalt paving.
What is chip sealing? It costs less than asphalt installation because it uses only a thin layer of asphalt that has aggregates (or chips) pressed into it by rollers, and the pavement is then compacted for stability. Though chip sealed roadways and parking lots can be somewhat less durable than asphalt paving, they are stable and less expensive than asphalt.
For our Porterville CA property owner, we installed a new asphalt chip roadway and parking area for them, and they were glad they chose the SteelRoad product. With a brand new paved road and parking area, their gravel road problems are no more.
If you want a paving company that centers your needs and respects your budget, look no further than TriCounty Asphalt Inc, Porterville CA’s trusted paving company.
When choosing the best roadway paving, there are several factors that property owners need to consider: paving budget, amount of traffic, but most importantly, the right roadway paving company. Recently a client in Orange Cove CA had an old, deteriorating roadway. After a search for “the best paving company for roadways near Fresno CA,” they found TriCounty Asphalt and gave us a call.
We were happy to go out to the site and look at their existing roadway, then discuss road paving options with the clients. Asphalt is an option, of course, but the client didn’t have the budget for it. Luckily, the paving experts at TriCounty Asphalt have experience with a paving process called asphalt chip sealing. Our Steelroad chip sealing process was a great alternative to solve their roadway problem.
Chip sealing, also known as macadam, is a classic form of roadway paving that consists of a thin layer of asphalt topped with aggregates that are rolled and pushed into the asphalt, compacting them to make a solid pavement. Though chip sealing isn’t as durable or long-lasting as full depth asphalt, it works well for rural roadways like this one that don’t get as much traffic as a busy parking lot. Chip sealing also is a very affordable process, an important concern for many clients.
This project exemplifies our approach to paving. At TriCounty Asphalt, we follow our client’s lead and search for paving solutions that meet their needs while staying within their budget. For this level of customer care on your next paving project, contact us right away.
A Delano, California business owner recently contacted us because their parking lot had water pooling in several areas that had caused serious problems with the asphalt over time. They searched for “the best parking lot repair company in Delano CA,” and found Tri County Asphalt, of course!
We answered quickly and were happy to go out to their commercial property for a pavement inspection to determine what was wrong. Not only was the asphalt pavement at the end of its life, it has suffered from water damage for years. Water is the enemy of asphalt, causing deterioration in several ways. One, it can physically wear away the surface layer of pavement, and when it soaks in, will break down the asphalt emulsion, exposing aggregates. Water can also flow into minor cracks and widen them when it freezes.
Fixing this local parking lot required several steps. First, we removed the old, damaged pavement to expose the sub-base. Next, we repaired and graded the sub-base so that water would flow away from the pavement. We also installed a concrete structure called a v gutter that lets water flow off the asphalt and into appropriate drainage systems. Finally, we paved the parking lot with new asphalt and performed line striping to make it good as new! The Delano CA property owner loves their new lot.
At TriCounty Asphalt, we work hard to solve your pavement issues while keeping your budget in mind using only the highest quality paving products and advanced methods. If your parking lot needs this kind of repair, don’t wait! Contact TriCounty Asphalt Inc right away!
