Both asphalt and concrete have their fair share of pros and cons. One of the many pros for using asphalt is that it doesn’t require frequent repairs and is why it’s a winner in our books!
Asphalt pavement consists of using a mixture of crushed rock, cement, and sand, which are all collectively heated before being dumped onto the roadbed. The reason why asphalt takes precedence over concrete is simply that with asphalt, there are fewer cracks, chips, and surface color fading issues.
So with asphalt, you can be certain your sidewalks, driveways, and roads will last for several years without requiring extensive repair. This is why we at Straight Edge always recommend our clients to go for asphalt. It is highly resistant to the weight of heavy trucks and cars, requires very minimal repair, and immediately amps up your driveways’, parking lots’, and sidewalks’ appearance!
