Cool and Maximise Light
When you choose concrete, you have the advantage of a material that has the ability to reflect heat. This means that UV rays from sunlight are less able to penetrate and your driveway stays far cooler than it would with asphalt. Though you may see heat radiating from both of them, walking on them shoeless and you can most certainly feel the difference in extreme heat of asphalt and the cooler temperature of concrete. If this more comfortable heat difference is important you to, concrete is the far better option. Concrete also absorbs less light than asphalt, making it a better security option when you have to navigate your driveway in darkness. Even a single spotlight on concrete can illuminate far better than it could on the dark color of asphalt.
When you have heavy vehicles sitting in your parking lot, you need a surface material that strong and durable and has the load-bearing capacity to handle them. Typical transport vehicles like recreation vehicles, boats, and tow truck are far heavier than normal cars and sport utility vehicles. Over time you may find that your asphalt is too flexible and will result in cracking and fissures than a more rigid material like concrete will withstand. Owning these vehicles should not result in stress of needed repairs and new installations in your driveway every few years. Instead, make the right choice to use a strong material that has significant load bearing capacity and you will have peace of mind that it will last for years to come.
