Your BudgetOne great thing about asphalt is the affordability. According to Fixr, the national average for asphalt is between $2 and $6 per square foot installed, while concrete will typically cost you between $4 and $10 per square foot installed. This means a huge cost differential for homeowners. If your one and only desire is to get the cheapest option for your driveway, asphalt has the advantage by a long shot. Concrete will be comparatively costly to install.
Fast InstallationAsphalt has notoriously easy installation and quick usability. Cassidy Paving understands the importance of project deadlines. We want to work as quickly as possible to meet those schedule needs. Depending on the project size, asphalt can typically be installed on your driveway within one or two days. Concrete, on the other hand, takes at least double the time to install and even longer to cure. You won’t be driving on a concrete driveway for about 28 days. Most homeowners don’t have the option to park elsewhere for a month while concrete cures. Asphalt, alternatively, can dry enough for vehicular traffic to resume within 48 to 72 hours.

Easy MaintenanceAsphalt is notoriously durable, so you can expect a certified contractor to deliver a driveway that can withstand the elements for many years. Asphalt will, over time, start to crack, but it will be easy to fix and won’t break the bank. Repairs to asphalt are low cost and can be done very quickly. Alternatively, concrete will be pricey to fix and those fixes will mean downtime for your driveway.
Increased Curb AppealAsphalt is known for its exponential boost to a home’s curb appeal. If selling is in your future, a new asphalt driveway is a small investment with a large payoff. A well installed driveway from Cassidy Paving is a solid investment in your property and is proven to increase your property value.
