The reason the majority of driveways are asphalt rather than concrete is because asphalt is less expensive at first. There are several reasons why, over time, the small amount of savings from asphalt will end up costing you more than if you chose to have a concrete driveway installed.
Concrete driveways, like the ones Warwick Concrete services can arrange to have built for you, have a much longer lifetime (they can last nearly twice as long!) and the maintenance to keep them looking great is lower too. No sealcoating is needed, which is usually required every 2-4 years with asphalt.
Unlike asphalt, concrete survives the harsh UV rays much better. If absorbs less heat making it cooler in the scorching Rhode Island summers but it also requires less lighting than asphalt would - which can save on outdoor energy costs over time.
Concrete is a stronger building material as well. If you have multiple cars or heavier cars like trucks and SUVs, then concrete again will stand up better to these stresses and need less in terms of repair costs.
