Asphalt vs Concrete Driveways

What is the difference between asphalt and concrete driveways?

Asphalt is generally more cost effective than other paving surfaces for areas measuring 150 square metres or more. In some ways asphalt is more durable as it is resistant to ants and weeds. Bricks, slabs and pavers are prone to shifting and can move at corners and bends, leaving gaps in the surface which allow water and weed ingress. Asphalt has a darker colour and creates less glare than lighter concrete and limestone surfaces.

Asphalt, concrete and pavers have similar lifespans, but asphalt can be resurfaced with a significant time and cost saving, unlike concrete and pavers which need demolition, removal and full replacement.
