If you are building a new home or need to replace your driveway, you’ve probably wondered whether you should purchase an asphalt or concrete driveway. There’s no question where we come down on this inquiry. The following are some reasons why asphalt driveways are perfect for the Buffalo, NY area:
A blacktop driveway is more resistant to colder temperatures that a concrete driveway, since it doesn’t crack in cold weather as easily. Plus, the black color absorbs heat and makes it easier for snow to melt.
Generally, asphalt driveways are cheaper to put in than concrete driveways.
Unlike concrete, if your asphalt driveway becomes damaged over the years, it’s easy to fix. We can patch holes and resurface an entire driveway rather than automatically having to start over with a new driveway.
An asphalt driveway can last longer than 20 years.
Is your asphalt beginning to crack? Maybe starting to notice some potholes in your driveway? Catching these problems early can make a big difference over time. Cracks and potholes can allow foreign materials and water to intrude into the asphalt causing the pavement to expand.
