Concrete vs. Asphalt: The Right Material for Your Rockford Driveway
Homeowners often choose blacktop paving for their driveways without knowing the many advantages of concrete driveways. Asphalt may be a cheaper choice to begin with, but the cost of repairs over the lifetime of the driveway makes it much more expensive than concrete in the end. Concrete is a stronger and more durable material, and concrete driveways can withstand heavy vehicle traffic as well as the drastic freeze-thaw cycles of Rockford, northern Illinois, and southern Wisconsin. Concrete driveways are also much easier to maintain than asphalt, and require sealing less frequently.
Your Rockford driveway could be constructed using brick pavers and decorative stamped concrete methods, making it much more attractive and visually interesting than plain black asphalt. Asphalt also fades quickly, making your driveway look worn and shabby a few short months after applying a new coat of sealant. Stamped concrete and concrete pavers will keep their vibrant colors and distinct patterns for the lifetime of your Rockford driveway.
