Flexibility: Asphalt driveways are far more flexible than either paved or concrete driveways. It allows your driveway to expand and contract in hot and cold conditions, or where there may be a change in soil conditions, without suffering the same degree of cracking or movement – a distinct advantage in the Adelaide Hills.
Ease of repair: Unlike a concrete driveway an asphalt driveway can be easily repaired. There’s no need to remove and relay large portions of your driveway; small patch repairs can be applied with a minimum of effort or expense and can take traffic straight away.
Better contouring: If you own a block with steep driveway access or awkward angles, asphalt offers greater flexibility to work with existing contours. It improves skid resistance, reduces dust, and there are virtually no maintenance costs compared to regular grading of rubble driveways.
Speed of construction: Unlike concrete driveways, there is no need to wait a week or more for your driveway to “cure”. Most residential asphalt driveways can be used the same day they are laid and, including site preparation, can take as little as 1-2 days to be fully complete.
Durability: A well maintained asphalt driveway can last up to 30 years. Asphalt will also retain its depth of colour much longer than coloured concrete, which can fade significantly over a short period of time.
Cost effective: Asphalt driveways are competitively priced against paved or concrete driveways. For larger driveways, such as rural properties, they can actually be much cheaper as they’re less labour intensive and faster to lay.
