FAQ Asphalt Driveways:

One of the first advantages of asphalt driveways is that they are more weather resistant than concrete driveways. Asphalt is the preferred material to use if you live in a cold climate. Asphalt driveways can contract and expand without sustaining damage. Those made from concrete will likely crack when exposed to extremely cold weather. Also, you won’t be able to use salt to melt ice because salt it will damage the concrete.

Flexibility

Another advantage of asphalt driveways is their flexibility. The asphalt binding can move when pressure is applied to it. This flexibility gives asphalt driveways the ability to conform to changes in the soil. Therefore, they are far less likely than concrete or brick driveways to crack if the soil changes beneath.

Repair

Repair is also one of the advantages of asphalt driveways. Most people will experience damage to their driveway at some time or another. If asphalt driveways are cracked, they are far easier to repair than the concrete variety. You can easily use emulsified liquids or solid cold-patches to repair the cracks yourself.

Slope

Many homeowners have a sloped driveway leading to their house. If you have a slope, then you would be much better off with a driveway made from asphalt. If you have a sloped concrete driveway, it may split from the foundation that it is poured on. This will cause the driveway to crack. Asphalt driveways are a much better choice to use on a slope.

Cost

One of the best advantages of asphalt driveways is their cost. They are usually cheaper to install than driveways made of concrete. This is especially the case on larger jobs.

These are some of the advantages that asphalt driveways have over concrete driveways. They are more resistant to cold weather and they also won’t be damaged be salt like driveways made from concrete. Asphalt driveways are also easier to repair, as you can use emulsified liquids or solid cold-patches to repair small cracks yourself. These driveways are also better to use on slopes as they won’t split away from the foundation like concrete driveways will.
