Need asphalt? A paving contractor? Stop here first!
Asphalt is California's most popular choice for paving material for a good reason: It is cost-effective, durable, environmentally friendly and long-lasting. If you are in need of asphalt for a parking lot, homeowner association-owned driveway, pedestrian walkway or bike path, you have come to the right place. We have assembled some resources for you to help you make an informed decision and pave the way (pun intended!) for a successful project. CalAPA has been representing the asphalt pavement industry in California since 1953, and our members are experienced, carry appropriate licenses and certifications, and also agree to abide by the association's "Code of Ethics."
