Concrete and asphalt remain the two choices for your driveway and solid materials. Asphalt paving is the best choice when installation, repairs, climate control and looks are considered. At Jif Paving Inc., we have been laying asphalt driveways for years and have learned the industry through hands-on experience and expertise.
Both asphalt and concrete are created by mixing sand and stone with an adherent. Concrete uses cement and asphalt uses tar. These adhesives are what makes the materials so different.
Take a look at you can expect from asphalt for your Dyer home:
Ready to go: Parking can be a challenge on concrete as it needs to set for a lot longer than asphalt. Typically, homeowners can drive on asphalt within days of the installation.
Vision of beauty: The look of asphalt is often preferred by homeowners. The darker color provides a smooth, clean perspective that also blends well with your Dyer home’s street.
Weather considerations: The color of asphalt paved areas not only provides a streamlined look for your home’s entryway, but it also offers a surface for easier ice and snow melt due to its darker color. Concrete can also face issues during colder months when it may buckle, heave or crack.
Melting products: When you de-ice your driveway, products containing salt can cause issues in concrete, such as pitting, staining or blotching. Asphalt is typically not affected by these products.
Maintaining the look: Sealing your asphalt surfaces retains the continuous, fluid feel you expect and have had from Day One. The sealing process also keeps the surface free from cracks and pits.
Stains hidden: Your Dyer driveway takes abuse day in and day out! From the weather to your cars and trucks, your hard surface is hit hard. Stains, such as gas, oil or rust, are inevitable and asphalt-paved areas will look better and will not need the constant cleaning that concrete does to keep a fresh feel.
Fast fix: When asphalt cracks or becomes damaged, it is a quick and easy repair while patched areas on concrete are way more obvious and noticeable.
