5 benefits of ASPHALT driveways
Asphalt driveways are easy to maintain. They can be kept clean and tidy with a brush. Tarmac driveways can also be further protected by applying a sealant. In the winter, due to its’ dark colour, asphalt absorbs heat and helps prevent the build-up of ice. This reduces the risk of anyone slipping and injurying themselves.
Our Asphalt Driveways can usually be installed in under two days and will only take a further two days (in normal weather conditions) to cure and become useable.
Hard to Crack
Asphalt can withstand extreme variations in temperature, meaning it is less likely to crack as it is flexible.
After years of use and exposure to the elements, asphalt can crack from time to time. However, the good news is that it is easy to repair. Most cracks can be repaired by you or by calling Asphalt Driveways of Deal.
The smooth complexion of asphalt driveways aids skid resistance and the dark colour means that scuffs and stains are rarely visible.

5 benefits of concrete driveways
Investing in a concrete driveway is very cost-effective. They are generally more expensive to install than asphalt driveways, but they last 50-60% longer. Whilst initially more expensive, over the life of the drive, it will prove more economical.
takes the load
Concrete is one of the most robust materials to build your driveway with. Concrete is perfect for taking loads of heavier vehicles and high traffic areas. This is ideal for commercial parking areas or where HGV’s are likely to use the surface.
Concrete driveways are built to last. They can handle all the weather conditions that mother nature throws at them, meaning that the lifecycle is very economical. Concrete reflects more heat than other materials used for driveways, which means they are cooler in the hot summer months. To get 50 years plus life out of concrete is not out the ordinary.
Concrete driveways do not have to be flat and plain. Designs and textures can be imprinted on concrete to make your driveway stand out and create curb appeal.
easy to maintain
Concrete driveways are very low maintenance for their owners. Debris can be swept away, whilst power washing the surface after several years will remove any stains, marks or dullness.
