Concrete is generally a bit stronger than asphalt, and can have things like mesh added into it to make it that much stronger. Concrete is harder to repair, but will last you a lot longer initially and looks great. It’s critical that concrete be allowed to dry completely before any traffic is allowed on it so that it can reach its maximum hardness and strength. If this step is neglected the result could be you having to replace all of your concrete paving much sooner in the future when it begins to fall apart!
Concrete Driveways NC
A lot of homeowners that don’t live in the city still have gravel and dirt driveways. Nothing, in particular, is wrong with them, but they do require a lot of regular maintenance over time and then can even cause some damage to your car, plus all the dirt and dust you’ll be tracking in with you. Many people don’t know with gravel and dirt they have to be re-leveled regularly and have more dirt or rocks added in to replace what’s lost to the elements and just constant driving over.
The best solution to avoid constantly spending money and doing work on your driveway is to have it paved with concrete! Concrete lasts a very long time with very minimal maintenance needed, it’s far more reliable than your gravel road. It is a big investment, but it’ll save you a lot of money and headache in the future.
