How to choose the best permeable concrete solution

Permeable, porous, and pervious asphalt are three different and separate products. However, they all achieve the common goal of improving water retention, and delivering water where it needs to go.  Permeable asphalt can prevent thousands of litres of water from entering stormwater systems each year.


Here’s what you need to know about the different kinds of asphalt and concrete products available on the market today:


  • Permeable asphalt paving allows water to filter through the surface to different layers of permeable and impermeable material, before it is directed where it needs to go.
  • Pervious asphalt pavement can soak up and retain rainwater which gradually works through to the water table, helping prevent rapid flooding in high risk areas..
  • Porous asphalt pavement uses porous materials like dirt and gravel to distribute water over a great surface area.

Frequently asked questions about permeable surfaces

What are the benefits of permeable and porous asphalt?

Permeable, porous, and previous asphalt has many benefits.

  • Permeable concrete helps to reduce runoff volume and establish a better hydrological balance in local water cycles.
  • Pervious concrete employs a range of organic and inorganic materials to filter water and reduce the amount of pollutants.
  • Porous asphalt slows the water transfer process, reducing its heat, and placing less stress of local ecosystems.
  • Permeable concrete solutions can save money by reducing the need for waste water management systems, like wet detention ponds.

Can permeable asphalt handle heavy traffic?

The exact specifications of load limits will differ from product to product, each of which usually has completely different physical properties. For instance, you would not use the same porous concrete on your driveway that you would around a truck loading dock.


There are many different industrial applications for pervious asphalt. To learn more, view some of the products about, or get in touch with us.


How much does porous asphalt cost?

This depends. Covering a single driveway with pervious asphalt will cost less than covering an entire car park. However, the cost savings of these solutions pay for themselves after a while.


What you spend on permeable asphalt and concrete, you’ll save tenfold on irrigation, drainage, and retention systems. As soon as the water hits the surface, you are also preventing potential damage from flooding, and improving the strength and vitality of local ecosystems.


How do I choose the right product?

If you’re looking for the best in stormwater management for your property, you have come to the right place. There are so many options available on the market today and starting out can often be daunting.
