There are two types of pavement for sidewalks, driveways, and other hard surfaces on commercial or residential properties: stone and asphalt. Stone pavements and asphalt pavements both serve the same purpose, but the differences are worth noting, especially if you are trying to decide on what type of driveway or other paved surfaces you want to install.
An asphalt pavement is more common due to its affordability. It is less up-front cost compared to stone pavers since there is less manpower involved. However, since stone pavements are more durable and require less maintenance, the long-term costs of asphalt pavement offset the difference.
The look of asphalt is smooth and flat, but stone pavement is similar to masonry or tile in that individual pieces are joined together to make one whole surface. The appeal of each is a matter of personal preference.
