Asphalt and concrete are the most common materials used in the construction of commercial and residential driveways. Both are cost-effective, but asphalt has a number of advantages. If you’re considering paving a new driveway or restoring an old one, here are some of the benefits you’ll notice with asphalt:

Fast Installation Speed and Usability

Installing an asphalt driveway takes two to three days, based on the size of the project. Depending on the season, asphalt driveways may be ready for use in as little as two days after completion.

Driveway Durability

Unlike concrete, asphalt is resistant to surface flaking due to poor installation, incorrect mixing preparation and the use of salts to melt ice and snow. Asphalt’s flexibility makes it far less prone than pavement to fracture over time.

Lower Maintenance Costs

If your asphalt driveway begins to crack, you may easily repair it with crack sealant products available at home improvement shops. They aren’t very expensive and don’t require any special tools or equipment. With routine maintenance and care, your asphalt driveway’s life expectancy can be as long as 20 years.

Additional Benefits

Asphalt’s dark color also helps to retain the sun’s heat, allowing snow to melt faster in winter. This may enhance safety in residential and commercial business locations!
