Concrete vs. Asphalt: Why Concrete Driveways Are the Clear Winner for Perrysburg Homeowners

Is it time to upgrade your driveway? While asphalt might seem like the budget-friendly choice, concrete driveways offer numerous advantages that make them a worthwhile investment for Perrysburg homeowners.

Let's break down why concrete beats asphalt in the long run:

1. Longevity & Durability:

  • Concrete is built to last. With proper installation and care, a concrete driveway can easily outlive an asphalt one, often lasting 30-50 years compared to asphalt's 15-20 years.

  • Concrete is more resistant to the freeze-thaw cycles common in Ohio, reducing the risk of cracks and potholes.

2. Aesthetics & Customization:

  • Concrete isn't just gray! With stamped concrete, we can create beautiful patterns and textures that mimic brick, stone, or even wood.  Add a personal touch to your home's curb appeal.

  • Colors: Concrete can be dyed in a variety of hues to match your home's exterior, while asphalt is limited to black.

3. Low Maintenance:

  • Concrete requires less upkeep than asphalt, which needs to be sealed and resealed over time.

  • Concrete is less susceptible to staining from oil and gas spills.

4. Increased Home Value:

  • A well-maintained concrete driveway adds significant value to your home compared to an asphalt driveway.

  • Potential buyers appreciate the durability and aesthetic appeal of concrete.

5. Environmental Considerations:

  • Concrete is more eco-friendly, reflecting light and heat rather than absorbing it. This helps reduce the "urban heat island" effect.

  • It's also recyclable, contributing to a more sustainable future.
