If you are looking to have a new driveway or parking lot installed, or are looking to repair or replace your existing one, consider the advantages of Asphalt.





Asphalt has many advantages over concrete such as:

  • COST - On average, the cost of having an asphalt driveway laid is 30-40% cheaper than concrete. 
  • CONSTRUCTION TIME - Typically, a new asphalt driveway takes 1-2 days (depending on the size and scope of the project) whereas a concrete driveway of the same size can take several days longer.
  • CURING TIME - Depending on the time of year, newly laid asphalt can be used in 2-3 days (spring and fall cure times are faster than summer as the summer heat slows the curing and hardening process). Concrete on average takes 7 days to properly cure. 
  • DURABILITY - Both concrete and asphalt can crack, typically as a result of soil expansion/contraction below. Asphalt is flexible which helps reduce the chance of cracking. In addition, asphalt is not susceptible to surface spalling (surface flaking) like concrete is. 
  • REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE - Due to the costs of materials, asphalt is generally cheaper to repair than concrete.
