Asphalt Paving vs Concrete Cement
When deciding weather to pave with asphalt or concrete consider the following:
Cost effectiveness-asphalt paving is the least expensive choice… anywhere from 2-3 times less than concrete cement. Asphalt pavement is also easier to repair and resurface ( or “re cap” ). Removal and replacement is also more cost effective.
Turn around – asphalt pavements can be driven upon immediately after installation with precautions. This is an important consideration for high traffic areas such as underground parkades and drive throughs.
Strength- concrete cement is structurally stronger and can last longer with proper installation. Full cure is usually achieved between 28 -40 days depending on temperature and humidity.
