Have you considered installing a <a href=http://www.decoturf.com/decorative/>decorative concrete</a> surface over the asphalt? There are different colors and combinations to choose from and this can be applied over the asphalt due to its adhesion. It will help with cut down on the heat dilemma.

Expertise

I can answer all questions concerning design and construction of outdoor wooden decks and stairways, particularly those suitable for timberframe homes, and especially for colder climates where snow is a factor.

Experience

I've been a timber framer for 20 years, working as a general contractor who designs and builds custom timberframe homes, working as much as possible with local materials, from foundation to finish. I've made massive decks for commercial lodges and small decks for houses in town. These decks have varied in style from round timber to Victorian ginger bread. I also have studied and tried out enough deck styles that I know which kinds are the most cost effective and easiest to make to meet code requirements. I also have expertise in designing, building, and setting up pre-fab remote camp facilities on terra firma or temperate glaciers for research and expeditions, using helicopters for support.
