What’s the best option for your driveway: concrete or asphalt?
While the Illinois weather might wear on concrete driveways, there are also advantages to choosing to go with concrete. Concrete does not require the maintenance of asphalt. Once a concrete driveway is poured and dried it is finished. Sealants and other types of upkeep that asphalt requires are not necessary.
Asphalt driveways need to be sealed every several years. Even if adding the sealant proves to be not too big of a chore, the driveway cannot be driven on for several days. The surface must also be completely cleared of any oil before application. While this feature might make asphalt seem like an undesirable material, asphalt stands up better to salt and cold weather.
