When deciding which material is right for your project, it is important to consider the applications. While asphalt may be the cheapest option, it gets very hot in direct sunlight. It is durable, long-lasting, and environmentally friendly. Asphalt is the most common driveway material, and we have been using asphalt to build our driveways, roads, and parking lots for centuries. When making the decision on which direction to go for your driveway project, consider the experience of The Atlas Asphalt team in your selection for a local asphalt contractor.
While concrete is more expensive than asphalt, it is also typically more durable. Concrete is the material of choice for heavy duty driveway or parking lot applications because it is versatile. While concrete is low maintenance, it is prone to cracking due to expansion and contraction from the Long Island climate. When concrete cracks, it is not easy to repair. Asphalt maintenance is more frequent, but the cost savings received by switching to an asphalt driveway make sense in the long run. Asphalt sealcoating is cheap, and looks great when applied.
Pavers are the most unique material for redoing your driveway, new patio, or other project. Pavers offer industry leading warrantees as well as amazing color combinations, textures, and finishes.
