Asphalt or Concrete? Is it Time to Refinish Your Driveway
When it is time to refinish your driveway, you might be wondering if you should go with asphalt or concrete. If your driveway is pre-existing, you might be tempted to go with what is already there, yet there are some definite advantages and disadvantages to both asphalt and concrete. Here’s what you need to know to make your decision.
Asphalt and concrete both consist of rocks and sand. The difference lies in the binder. With asphalt, the binder is tar and oil. With concrete, the binder is cement. These two different binders are what makes the two types of driveways so very different in appearance and durability.
