Concrete has stood the test of time
Concrete pavement has stood the test of time in its durability and usefulness in paving and construction. Concrete is one of the oldest materials used for building and has been around for centuries. There has been advances in the makeup of concrete, but the base of concrete has been around for ages. The Romans used a version of concrete that is made from limestone, volcanic ash and water and many of their structures have stood the test of time even through wars, riots and devastation. Concrete is a material you can trust to do the job.
Benefits of Concrete
There are many benefits to using concrete. Concrete tends to last longer as it is more durable than asphalt. Concrete is made from strong, sturdy materials that when mixed properly together have the strength to last decades. Concrete paving has a typical life of 40-50 years.
The beauty of concrete is that it does not require much maintenance. The surface of concrete does not require an additional protective layer, as concrete is an already sturdy and durable material. Asphalt requires a sealing every 3-5 years to maintain its life, but concrete does not require the same amount of maintenance.
Unlike asphalt, concrete has the ability to be customized. Asphalt is laid and an asphalt roller is used to compress and flatten the asphalt. With concrete it is poured and designs can easily be implemented into the concrete. If you want to have a seal, mark or pattern put into the concrete then it is possible.
Concrete is typically a lighter color than asphalt, which causes it to absorb less heat. Just like wearing a black t-shirt on a hot day causes you to Items that are black absorbs heat. Asphalt is tar black and it absorbs a lot of heat, causing the surrounding area to be hotter. The lighter color of concrete causes less heat to be absorbs, allowing the surrounding areas to not heat up as much. In Georgia summers, that is something that we can appreciate! The blistering Georgia summers is not something that our friends at Ann Arbor concrete paving company have to deal with.
