WHAT KIND OF AS­PHALT SHOULD I BE US­ING?

North Toronto Post - - Spring Home Design -

There are 3 main types of as­phalt: HL8, HL3 and HL3A. HL8 is mostly used for com­mer­cial work. How­ever, there are many home­own­ers who choose this as a base when in­stalling a two layer drive­way. It is a very coarse mix, but it pro­vides a great foun­da­tion for a long last­ing drive­way. HL3 is a top layer as­phalt mix and is of­ten used on city roads and long coun­try drive­ways. The mix is coarse and gravel stones are pre­dom­i­nant. HL3A is a much smoother mix and that’s why most home­own­ers will choose it over HL3. It is more aes­thet­i­cally ap­peal­ing.
