Advantages of Asphalt
- Safe Asphalt pavements offer high skid resistance and provide high contrast in color between asphalt pavement and road markers, giving drivers better road visibility in any weather condition. Unharmed by ice and snow chemicals, asphalt’s dark color also reduces glare and melts ice and snow more rapidly than other pavement types. Open-graded asphalt, a special type of road surface, can minimize splash and spray during rainstorms and reduce crashes and fatalities on highways. Asphalt pavement materials also eliminate potentially dangerous and expensive pavement blowups.
- Smooth Asphalt pavements provide a more uniform surface unmatched by other pavements. Smooth roads are safer because rough, uneven surfaces increase driver fatigue and diminish control. Smooth asphalt roads also reduce rolling resistance (the friction between tires and pavement), which means better fuel economization and reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. Smooth roads allow superior contact with vehicle tires for a safer (and more enjoyable) ride.
- Cost-Effective Smooth roads aren’t just safer; they also save money. Reduced wear and tear on vehicles due to fewer bumps in the road brings down vehicle operating costs. Also, increasing a roadway’s smoothness by 25% extends its lifespan—upwards of 10 percent—which saves taxpayers money. Asphalt roads can be built more quickly and cost-effectively than other pavements. They can be designed as a Perpetual Pavement that needs only periodic maintenance to remain in good shape indefinitely.
- Quiet Roadway noise is a distraction in your car and at home. Asphalt roads can reduce highway noise by as much as seven decibels. For a scale of reference, reducing noise by just three decibels is equivalent to doubling the distance from the noise source to the listener. Asphalt roads also reduce the need for costly and unsightly sound barriers, often exceeding $2 million per mile.
- Traveler and business friendly Asphalt roads do not require curing time, or extensive site preparation and traffic is permitted as soon as the rollers are finished. They can be paved just a lane at a time, minimizing disruption to citizens and reducing congestion through speedy construction processes, saving taxpayers thousands of dollars in user delay costs. Projects can often be completed in one short day, even overnight, leaving routes open for travelers and providing street access for stores and businesses.
- Environmentally friendly Asphalt is 100% recyclable and is the most recycled product in America. The asphalt industry reuses and recycles 100 million tons of asphalt pavement a year, saving taxpayers over $2 billion annually. Asphalt also requires 20% less energy to produce and construct than other pavement materials. Post-consumer waste such as used tires and shingles can also be reused in new asphalt pavement, reducing landfill space and conserving natural resources.
- Attractive Many hours are spent designing aesthetically pleasing infrastructure, and great curb appeal starts with asphalt pavement. A new road is an investment in the appearance of our communities and in the safety of our citizens. Asphalt pavements have no built-in, unsightly cracks. They blend with and enhance the natural surroundings.
- Durable Asphalt pavements have long lives. All asphalt pavements have a bridging action and are flexible, which means they can withstand occasional overloads without serious damage. They can be designed to suit any conditions of traffic, soil, and materials. Asphalt only needs periodic maintenance to remain in good shape indefinitely.
Asphalt Driveway Pros
Less expensive: Asphalt driveways tend to cost less than concrete ranging from $2.00 to $5.00 per square foot. Long term, asphalt has a lower maintenance cost as cracks are less expensive to fill and also tend to be much more aesthetically pleasing than the look of cracks repaired on concrete. When properly maintained, expensive repairs can likely be avoided.
Asphalt Driveway Cons

In general, among homeowners, asphalt is not the preferred option for aesthetic reasons.
Concrete Driveway Pros

Concrete Driveway Cons

Cracks on the surface are more expensive to fix, and the final product of a concrete crack repair does not blend as well as asphalt, making it somewhat of an eye-sore.
