For those interested in installing or resurfacing their driveways, asphalt offers a considerable number of advantages that works for you year after year.
Benefits of an Asphalt Driveway
There are several advantages to going with asphalt as compared to concrete. For home and business owners who need to make the decision, you should know the benefits of asphalt when used for driveways and parking areas.
Flexible: Because of the aggregate nature of asphalt, it can bear the weight of heavy vehicles with less cracking thanks to its flexibility. What might crack a concrete surface may not affect an asphalt one at all.
Freeze-Resistant: Another advantage thanks to its flexible nature is that asphalt holds up quite well during the winter months when freezing and thawing puts pressure on the driveway. It also helps that the dark color of asphalt absorbs more heat from the sun which means that snow and ice tend to melt quicker compared to concrete.
Resurfacing: If your driveway needs more attention, resurfacing may be the answer. This adds a new layer of asphalt over the old one. The result is having a brand-new surface at a far lower cost compared to removing and re-installing a new driveway. This means you can save money while improving the appearance of your driveway thanks to resurfacing.
These are just some of the benefits that an asphalt driveway offers. But there are two important questions that need to be answered before you make the decision to choose one for your property.
How Long Does an Asphalt Driveway Last?
This is probably the most popular question we get. And we are happy to tell you that an average asphalt driveway will last from 12 to 20 years under normal use conditions. The better you take care of your driveway, the longer it will last. This means that if you address the small issues before they become large ones, your asphalt driveway will last even longer.
As with concrete driveways, asphalt is subject to cracking and chipping due to age, weather conditions, and the sun. A small crack may become a big problem if left unchecked. Our repair program means that we can fill the cracks, dents, and depressions before they can expand. This means with a little upkeep your asphalt driveway will last for quite some time.
Is Asphalt Cheaper than Concrete?
A typical asphalt driveway is 25% to 50% cheaper on average compared to one made of concrete. There are factors that can affect the price such as finishing, details, and adding stains. For those looking to save money on their new driveway, going with asphalt does have advantages when compared to concrete.
