Concrete or Asphalt for Your Vancouver WA Driveway?

Sep. 28th 2015

If you’re in the market for a new driveway, or perhaps some extra space for parking another vehicle, then you might be wondering which material is better for you: asphalt or concrete. Each of these materials offers different advantages. While some prefer the look and feel of asphalt, others prefer concrete. So what are the main differences and which one is right for you?

One of the biggest differences is price. Concrete is usually more expensive than asphalt, but in the long run you will usually get your money’s worth for difference in price. Concrete is more durable than asphalt, which means it can handle more weight and it almost always lasts longer. Concrete usually lasts for 30-40 years while asphalt typically only lasts about 20 years.

One advantage of asphalt is that it is ready to drive on much quicker than concrete. Sometimes, you can park on it the same day it’s poured, whereas with concrete you will typically have to wait at least a week before it has cured enough to drive on. While it is easier to repair cracks in asphalt it also needs to be resealed regularly in order to protect it from crumbling sooner, which means it requires more maintenance that concrete.

In fact, concrete is very low maintenance once it has been poured and cured. It is also very durable especially in warmer climates and it can be colored or stamped, which offers a variety of design options. Ultimately, the choice is yours, but at Direct Finish we typically recommend concrete for most driveways in Vancouver.

Many general contractors focus on building homes or doing other types of residential work. Still, other general contractors put their attention into commercial construction.
