Concrete is used by both residential and commercial property owners. Before deciding between a concrete or asphalt driveway, there are some things that you need to consider. Because these determining factors are driven by needs that are unique to each individual, Reis Asphalt offers both options to our customers.
Concrete vs. Asphalt:
-Concrete driveways are more expensive to install than asphalt.
-Concrete can be damaged by salt in the winter months, but asphalt is not affected.
-Asphalt is more flexible than concrete and is more durable when it comes to freezing and thawing.
When it comes down to it, the reason that people choose concrete over asphalt is a personal preference. Some people just prefer the lighter color, look and feel of concrete compared to the darker appearance of asphalt. Compatability can be an issue in some private communities or neighborhoods if all the other homes have a specific type of driveway. Reis Asphalt will consider this in the initial consultation inspection and provide suggested materials that will work within your community guidelines and restrictions.
