What are the Benefits of Concrete Paving?

If you are considering paving your driveway, building a patio or making a pool deck, concrete is one of the oldest choices available; it has been used in some form for thousands of years. The mix of cement, rock, sand and water that makes concrete can create a solid surface that can last for decades. While concrete is a standard surface, you may wonder if it is the best option for your project. Here are some of the benefits of concrete and when it is a good choice for paving.

Longevity Versus Cost

Few paving options last as long as concrete. For driveways, walkways, patios and pool decks, you will not find many paving options that can last as long as concrete. Asphalt is cheaper for driveways but does not have the same lifespan. Pavers can last for decades, but they are more likely to need replacement sooner than concrete and cost more to install. When it comes to longevity versus cost, concrete is a definite winner for paving.

Easy Maintenance

Concrete does not take much maintenance and is easy to clean. Sweeping and pressure washing are the best ways to clean concrete; sealing once every few years can help reduce cracking.

Cool Surface

One of the reasons concrete is popular is its cool surface. Concrete reflects light, helping it stay cool in the hot sun.

Design Options

Concrete can be plain, stamped and colored, giving multiple options to create the look you desire for your paving project.

If you want a cost-effective paving options that is cool to the touch and long-lasting, concrete should be at the top of your list. Talk to your local paving contractor to find out if concrete is the best choice for your next paving project.
