Deciding Between a Concrete or Asphalt Driveway Fort Lauderdale, Florida
A house with a concrete driveway.

Having a functional and aesthetically pleasing driveway is undeniably beneficial to your home or business. A well-presented drive creates a welcoming and professional first impression for anyone approaching your property. Vehicles will have reduced wear and tear, and there is less risk of injury from tripping on uneven ground.

Both concrete and asphalt are fantastic materials for constructing a driveway. This can make it difficult to decide which is best suited to your needs. U.S. Pave is your specialist in construction with both substances in a commercial and domestic setting.

Opting for Asphalt?

The biggest benefit of an asphalt driveway is its cost-effectiveness. In comparison to concrete, asphalt is much cheaper to purchase and install. You get greater flexibility and less inclination to crack under heavy loads. Concrete requires time to cure, meaning your driveway will not be usable for around a week. Once laid, asphalt can be used almost immediately, meaning no downtime for your business or needing to park on the sidewalk.

The main drawback of asphalt is that it requires some maintenance to remain functional. You will need to seal your driveway regularly and address any damaged areas. US Pave offers a range of services to keep your asphalt looking and functioning perfectly. Dark materials absorb more heat from sunlight, so an asphalt drive can become extremely warm and a potential hazard for pets and children.

Choosing Concrete?

Concrete is extremely durable and long lasting, meaning that it will require little maintenance or upkeep. Although it has a higher initial installation cost, US Pave’s installation techniques mean it should only require infrequent sealing or minor repair. Large trucks or multiple vehicles can strain and crack other materials, but concrete is designed to withstand a lot of use.

Installing concrete does take time, as it must properly set and cure to maximize durability. This means your driveway will be unusable for at least a week after pouring. Some people find that concrete does not represent a pleasing aesthetic choice, as it is normally associated with industrial and commercial use. US Pave offers a range of texturizing and stamped patterns to add appeal to your drive.

Whatever material you choose for your drive, the key to maximizing its potential is proper installation. You can trust US Pave to provide exemplary service from the outset and with any on-going maintenance. Contact one of our nationwide premises today.
