Expert Asphalt Paving Since 1961

Challenge Asphalt has provided exceptional residential and commercial asphalt paving services throughout Santa Barbara County and Ventura County for over 60 years. No matter the scope, we get the job done right every time.

Asphalt Is Our Business.

Not a Sideline.

As a family-owned and operated business, you could say paving’s in our blood. When Dewayne Copus founded Challenge Asphalt in 1961, he did so with two goals: providing the highest quality paving services with unbeatable customer service. Today, our crew of over 20 is led by Dewayne’s oldest son, Mike, and grandson, Kurt. We’re proud to continue Dewayne’s legacy with state-of-the-art equipment, dedicated crew members, and commitment to our customers’ goals.
