Driveway Replacement- Concrete or Asphalt?
Due to water main break in January we were left with an asphalt drive that was heaved and cracked. We also have to replace some brick and the concrete garage apron. We are waiting on an answer from the city's insurance carrier. They did send out two independent engineer's to check for any structural damage to the foundation. They spent several hours in the attic and crawlspace and taking measurements and pictures. No word from that yet either.
We feel that since we have to take out the driveway, we might as well replace it with concrete. The insurance will probably only pay a portion since the original is 27 year old asphalt. Concrete will be $6200 for 21 ft. X 60 ft. Asphalt will be $3500 to $4000. We live in central Indiana. Do you think concrete is worth the extra money?
