Why Install a New Drive?
Are you tired of uneven ground, cracks, stains, or ruts in your driveway? If so, it is understandable that you are now looking for alternatives. A shoddy driveway brings down the curb appeal and value of your property, and you are also dealing with driving and walking on it. You may also have children that deserve a nice driveway for playing, riding bikes, and more.
However, you do have the choice between asphalt or concrete. Both are put over a gravel substrate with a mixture of stone and sand, but there are different adhesives to bring the components together. Asphalt includes tar, and concrete has cement.
Concrete and asphalt both offer aesthetics and durability. Knowing more about each option will give you insight into what might be the right choice for your property and budget.
With concrete, you actually have more visual options. Many people fail to realize that you can use various stains or tints to enhance your driveway to make the concrete any color you wish. You also can stamp in patterns for a unique twist. On the downside, you may find that concrete driveways cost quite a bit more than asphalt.
This is an option for people that want a more streamlined and traditional look for their driveway. While it does not take long to be able to drive on it after installation, remember that asphalt can suffer when in high heat situations.
