What does this have to do with asphalt or concrete?
Well, when it’s installed properly, the average life of a concrete driveway is about thirty years- 20 years for asphalt. That means that many of the houses in Eden Prairie are due for their driveways to be redone.
While some may want to opt to repair crumbling and cracking driveways, pathways, and sidewalks, it could be costlier in the long run. If your surface is approaching, or has already passed the twenty-year mark, it may be futile to simply repair the issues, because once one problem is fixed, another issue may arise.
