When paving your driveway in Palm Beach, you’ll have to decide between concrete and asphalt. Each of these materials has their difference and knowing what they are will help you come to an educated decision on which is right for you.

Cost of Each
Asphalt driveways are typically cheaper than the standard installation of concrete.

Maintenance and Repairs
To extend the life of an asphalt driveway, you should seal it six months to a year after installation, and then every three to five years after that.

Concrete driveways are more low maintenance. Sealing your driveway can make it more attractive while preserving it. Applying a degreaser will help keep your concrete driveway free of oil, fuel and chemical stains.

While both materials will generate cracks that’ll need to be repaired, you’ll find that cracks in asphalt are easier to repair and look more aesthetically pleasing versus those in concrete.

Lifespan and Durability
A driveway paved with concrete can last over 50 years with only the occasional repairs and degreasing. Asphalt is less durable than concrete, but with proper maintenance it can last up to 30 years.

Aesthetic and Design
If you want a customized look that you can stain, tint, etch or stamp then a concrete driveway can give you the results you’re looking for. Asphalt has limited options in this department.

Climate and Weather
In areas that have cold winters, concrete driveways can crack from the constant freezing and thawing. In addition, the road salts that are sometimes applied during incliment weather will eat away at concrete surfaces.

In hot climates like Palm Beach, Broward, Martin, and St. Lucie Counties in South Florida asphalt can soften and stick to shoes, clothing and car tires.

Just had an asphalt residential driveway replaced. It looks absolutely fantastic. I dealt with both David and his father Daniel in the setting up of this job. What a pleasure it was dealing with both of them. Courteous, and most importantly, professional. I would recommend Sunshine Services in a heartbeat. Their work crew was an asset also to their company.
