Houston Paving Company Develops Asphalt vs. Concrete Comparison

A Houston-based company called Enterprise Paving has produced an infographic that compares concrete to asphalt in five different areas: cost, durability, maintenance, longevity and weather. Among its conclusions: aesthetically, asphalt maintains its appearance longer because it is darker and therefore stains are not as visible. In contrast, stains on concrete are much more visible because of concrete’s lighter color. Concrete is also better in warmer climates, whereas asphalt is better in cold climates. Enterprise Commercial Paving delivers commercial and industrial paving services to metropolitan Houston and the Central/Southeast Texas region.
