Benefits of an Asphalt Driveway Compared to Concrete

Having a beautifully paved driveway in Houston adds to your property’s curb appeal and helps keep your vehicles, and especially their tires, in great shape too. If you’re putting in a new driveway on your property, you may want to consider an asphalt driveway.  Read on to learn about all the benefits of an asphalt driveway, especially compared to concrete.

Asphalt Driveways are Durable

Unlike concrete, an asphalt driveway is extremely durable and far more resistant to what is known as “spalling”. This is when the surface of concrete begins to flake.  Also, asphalt is more resistant to cracking, which is especially beneficial considering the high Houston temperatures.  

Asphalt Driveways Have Low Maintenance Costs

Compared with concrete, asphalt is easier and less expensive to repair.  For example, if your asphalt driveway shows cracks due to wear and tear, it only takes a tube of sealant to fix them.  You can find this at a local hardware store and fix the cracks yourself without having to call upon Houston Asphalt Contractors.  This means that you continue to save money on your asphalt driveway even if and when it starts to show signs of needing repair.  

Other Benefits of Asphalt Paving

In addition, an asphalt driveway is easy and affordable to install.  It also does a much better job of retaining heat than a concrete driveway. This means you don’t get that hot “concrete jungle” feeling when opt for asphalt over concrete.
