Asphalt, as most people know, is stone and petroleum mixed product that once it cures gets almost as hard as concrete. Asphalt is the most common material used in the construction of roads and parking lots. Asphalt makes a wonderful playing surface for tennis courts because it can be finished very smooth and can be installed almost anywhere. Asphalt also coats very well allowing the customer options as to the speed of the surface, the possibility of rubberizing the surface and the ability to coat with a wide assortment of colors. Asphalt also requires little to no daily maintenance and with proper care can last 20 years or more.
As far as surface colors the standard colors are: light green, dark green,
blue, red and tan but other “special order” colors can be made.
