When it comes to driveway, porch, patio, and pathway construction for your property, interlocking and asphalt are two very distinct types of methods. Asphalt is typically used in driveways and some side paths for your home, whereas interlocking is popular for all of these elements in your property. Interlocking is much more diverse in its uses, mainly due to the variety of colors, materials, and styles available to homeowners. Asphalt, while extremely cost-effective, is quite plain, as it is a smooth black layer of cement.
In the long run, asphalt will require more upkeep since it must be sealed every few years, while interlock requires minimal care for a 20-40 year span.
Interlocking and asphalt pavements are both excellent choices for homeowners, but the most important aspects to consider when choosing between interlocking and asphalt are appearance, initial cost, and long-term upkeep. 2 Queens Home Services offers extensive interlocking services (and asphalt too) all across Ottawa and its surrounding areas, so contact us for a consultation on which choice is best for you.
