Benefits of an Asphalt Driveway

        Having a new driveway installed can improve your home's curb appeal and it's overall value. Determining which material will be the best for your new driveway can be a big decision to make, especially considering it is something you will be using every day for a long time.  Asphalt is a good option for your driveway and definitely a material to be considered. 


Some of the benefits of asphalt include:

1. Longevity

        One of the most important benefits of having an asphalt driveway is how long your investment will last. Asphalt contracts and expands with different temperatures and weather conditions. This flexibility helps asphalt not break easily like concrete. An asphalt driveway can withstand heavy loads and holds up well in high-traffic areas. This makes it a great choice for any residential property.

2. Cost

        Asphalt is not an expensive material. Asphalt can be less than half the cost of concrete and holds up just as well, especially here in the San Antonio area.

3.Cures Quickly

        Waiting on your driveway to dry and losing access to your home can be a big inconvenience. With asphalt, you can drive on your new driveway the same day it is installed.


        No matter what material you choose for your driveway, it will require maintenance. Asphalt repairs and maintenance are the least expensive compared to other materials. In the case of replacement, repaving is far less expensive than any other type of driveway.

So, if you're looking for a long-lasting, cost-efficient driveway that requires little upkeep, asphalt is the way to go.
