Common Characteristics of Asphalt Paving

Asphalt paving in Victoria is an excellent option if you are looking to save some money on initial costs with easy upkeep after installation. Take into consideration these characteristics of asphalt when making your decision about the paving material at your home:


  • Cost - Asphalt paving costs less than pouring a concrete driveway.
  • Curing - Asphalt is quick to install and doesn’t require curing time after installation. Once a driveway is paved, it can be driven on almost immediately.
  • Maintenance - Small maintenance is required more often than with concrete, but it is usually quick and easy.
  • Cracking - Cracks are very easy to repair and can simply be filled and sealed.
  • Weather - Asphalt will shrink and expand with temperature changes.
  • Oil & Gas - Oil leaks on asphalt are not nearly as noticeable as those on concrete. However, gasoline spills will cause damage.
  • Lifespan - Asphalt can last up to 20 years.


Concrete Driveways

Concrete driveways will cost more initially, but could potentially save you money in the future. Our professionals can help you choose the right paving material for your Victoria home. We’ve also provided you with some basic facts here to give you more specifics on concrete paving:


  • Cost - A concrete driveway will cost more at installation time. Added decorative elements can also drive the cost up.
  • Curing - Concrete takes time to cure before any weight can be put on it. Most driveways must cure for seven days before you can drive on it.
  • Maintenance - Less frequent maintenance is required when compared to asphalt, however if repairs are ever needed they are often more difficult.
  • Cracking - Cracks in concrete are harder to patch than in asphalt and patched areas are much more obvious. If cracking occurs, sometimes more expensive repairs are required.
  • Weather - Cracks will form if the concrete is under extreme pressure or can result from surface movement.
  • Oil & Gas - Gas and oil spill will leave very obvious stains because of the material’s light color.
  • Lifespan - Concrete can last up to 30 years.
