For instance, when choosing between concrete or asphalt, Seattle companies and homeowners are often unclear as to the benefits/disadvantages of each. Asphalt is definitely more flexible than concrete. Because of the elastic nature of liquid asphalt, the material that is mixed with stone aggregate to form the substance used for paving, an asphalt pavement has a certain amount of give to it not found with concrete. This makes it more suitable for high traffic areas, such as roadways or driveways since it is less likely than concrete to crack or crumble under the weight of vehicles. In addition, given the climate in Seattle, asphalt paving is more resistant to damage caused by external conditions, such as excessive moisture, temperature fluctuations, and ice/snow. It is also less prone to damage from chemicals such as rock salt or ice melt. Generally speaking, asphalt is also cheaper than concrete and more convenient to use in that it sets faster since it hardens by cooling rather than drying. This means that, if a surface is paved with asphalt, Seattle companies and homeowners can look forward to using it much sooner than if it concrete had been poured.

On the other hand, though, asphalt is not as versatile as concrete with regard to aesthetics. Concrete can be molded and defined in a decorative manner so that an area paved with concrete can not only be functional but can also be decorative. Asphalt, however, is fairly standard in appearance, and not much can be done to dress it up. Asphalt can also be very temperamental when being poured, depending upon the area conditions. For instance, it is sensitive to air temperature and humidity, and for the ideal paving job, the external weather conditions have to be carefully monitored. Concrete is less sensitive to external conditions and, although it takes longer to set, may be more convenient to pour.
