Driveway - concrete or asphalt
Hello! I haven't posted much but am finishing my project and will post pictures soon. I've relied on you all more than you know.
I'm putting in a circular drive and need to decide asphalt or concrete. I'm getting bids for both, but builder seems to think that over the long run, the cost will be about the same.
My concerns with concrete (other than cost) is 1) if it gets damaged, its harder to nicely fix ( I live near chicago, rather extreme temps I know can affect the concrete) 2) curing time - I have to go to the police station daily to get a pass to park on the street! 3) my kids think they will get hurt more on concrete (harder, rougher)
My concerns with asphalt is 1) looks 2) durability 3) maintenance.
I'd appreciate any thoughts on the matter!
