When designing your dream driveway, you need to think of it as an investment since you will be using this piece of road for the better part of your life, not only that but it will be put under immense stress through temperature changes, constant weight being moved on top of it and general wear and tear.
These problems are for those who choose to have concrete driveways but for those who choose to pave their driveways with asphalt, these problems will be minimal at the worst of times for you and there are plenty of other reasons to consider an asphalt driveway
You also need to consider the look of your driveway and how others are going to see it, are you ok with the sun fading away your colour and large cracks being an eyesore for you and anyone you have over to your house? You should consider that and the following benefits of having an asphalt driveway before making your decision.
They’re easy and fast to install
Depending on the size of your driveway if it was concreted then it would take around 7-10 days to fully set meaning you couldn’t walk or park on it for over a week. While asphalt driveways will be set in 1-2 days and require less work to put in.
We should always look for the most effective and affordable way to achieve our building desires and asphalt is a great way to save both time and money but it’s not just that which makes it the better option.
Maintenance is easy and cost-effective
If your asphalt driveway does start to show signs of wear and tear such as cracks or chips coming off then instead of calling a construction company to came and patch up the driveway, the tools and materials needed to fix this are available to purchase in a wide range of stores.
So instead of having to pay a company a large amount of money to fill in some cracks, you have in your driveway you yourself can do this thus cutting your cost down significantly.
Installation cost is cheaper
So not only is asphalt easier than concrete to install but it’s also easier to maintain as well but did you know that it’s also cheaper? That’s right asphalt tends to be around $2-$4 per square foot while concrete will come at around $4-$6 per square foot and that does add up when paving a full-size driveway.
