Homeowners have many options when it comes to driveway installations. They can choose gravel, concrete, or asphalt driveways, but making that choice can be difficult. One of the most popular choices for exceptionally long driveways is asphalt.
Asphalt is easier to install than concrete, so it’s useful for homes that are set very far back from the road or have complex driveways that connect multiple outbuildings.
In the video here, the host gives a full review of the pros and cons of asphalt driveways from the perspective of a homeowner who has had an asphalt driveway for a full year. During that year, he had to maintain it through a snowy winter and vibrant summer.
Overall, the host of the video is impressed with the driveway. It’s comfortable to walk on, the seal coat is holding up well, it was easy to plow in the winter, and vegetation was easy to manage around it during the summer.
After one year, the asphalt driveway is starting to show some wear and tear where vehicles are regularly parked. Otherwise, it is holding up surprisingly well, and he recommends asphalt to other homeowners, especially those who need a driveway that is easy to maintain.
