For many residential and commercial owners, concrete is the paving material of choice. In addition to the pros listed above, there are many characteristics commonly preferred with concrete.

The smooth, durable finish concrete provides is one the most favorable features. Concrete is more versatile when it comes to the numerous activities which take place on a driveway. Concrete does not absorb the sun’s heat and is smooth all around the edges. So whether it’s playing basketball or cooking out, concrete driveways offer a safer family solution.

Simply stated, you get more for your money with a concrete driveway installation. A concrete driveway can cost anywhere from 40-60% more than an equivalent asphalt driveway yet will have a much longer lifespan. When cost is measured and compared over each lifespan, the two driveway types are unparalleled.
