Many people choose to forgo driveway paving and instead stick with their gravel driveway. While there’s nothing wrong with having a gravel driveway, there are many benefits that come from investing in driveway paving.
For starters, if you have a gravel driveway, the loosely packed rocks will always shift and move around, which can make your driveway look unfinished and messy. When you invest in driveway paving, this will create clean lines and add a finished look to your home.
On top of this, gravel driveways usually required more maintenance than paved driveways. Because gravel is always shifting, creating empty spaces, divots, and hills, you need to do regular maintenance to maintain the driveway’s shape. With a paved driveway, on the other hand, all you have to do is clean it every few months and then sealcoat the surface every few years.
Additionally, when you drive on loose gravel, it’s harder for your tires to get the traction to maintain stable control. And if you’re going too fast on a gravel surface, this can create a problem. A driveway paved with asphalt is easy for your vehicle to drive on and safer for you and your passengers.
