Asphalt is a good solution for the budget conscious person. It can also be a better fit for a home than concrete. Concrete can be more expensive and durable, but it is prone to cracking, spalling, chipping and heaving. As they say its not a matter of “if its gonna crack” it all about “when its gonna crack”. Standard PSI of concrete is 4000 while the standard PSI of pavers is 12,000. This is why pavers are less prone to chipping and can hold up a heck of a lot longer than concrete or asphalt.
