We encourage homeowners to do their homework when considering a new driveway and walkway for their home. Homeowners are faced with two options for the driveways, which includes concrete or asphalt, another popular option.
But concrete offers several key benefits over asphalt. And in Wisconsin, we have to consider our frigid winters and hot summers, and the way the concrete or asphalt react in those temperatures.
— In climates like ours, where temperatures fluctuate between bitter cold and sweltering heat, only concrete stands up to both extremes. In high temperatures, asphalt can become sticky and soft, and in winter, ice, snow, and salt can create divots in your driveway, making it unpleasant and in need of repair.
— Furthermore, concrete is much more durable and requires very little maintenance. Concrete can last for decades, a much longer life span than asphalt, which requires sealing approximately every 2 to 5 years. And it’s true, concrete also needs sealing, but not at the frequency as asphalt.
— Lastly, concrete has many more options when it comes to beautifying your property, creating a lasting impression and adding value to your home. Concrete can be stamped or stained into an eye-catching design that can’t be replicated in asphalt.
When considering the options, and learning more about the benefits of concrete, there is no comparison when comes to deciding between concrete or asphalt. Concrete truly is the better option.
