Anderson, SC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/24/2018 -- Pickens Construction is encouraging its clients to adopt asphalt as the paving material of choice due to the many benefits that it offers to its users. The company posted an argumentative blog post on its website where it highlights all the advantages of using asphalt instead of concrete for road construction and paving.

Asphalt paving specialist, Pickens Construction, has made a very compelling case for asphalt as the paving material of choice on its website. The company recently posted a well-researched article in its blog whereby it emphasized the importance of using asphalt instead of concrete for road construction and other paving projects. Tellingly titled, "Three Reasons to Choose Asphalt over Concrete," the article acknowledges that the two most popular construction materials today are concrete and asphalt. And after a brief description of both asphalt and concrete, the blog post then presents its three major reasons why asphalt is better than concrete in road construction.

Pickens Construction claims that asphalt is stronger and more durable than concrete in road construction. The company supports its thesis with hard facts where it notes that although both materials are strong and durable, asphalt is far much flexible than concrete and hence sets well after being poured. This makes asphalt withstand temperature fluctuations without flaking or chipping like concrete. The other reason that asphalt is better than concrete is that it is easier and cheaper to install and maintain. According to Pickens Construction, asphalt pavements can be laid and be in use in two days or less but concrete pavements need up to two weeks to be in use. Also, concrete pavements cost more than double of what asphalt pavements cost. And the last advantage of asphalt over concrete is that it retains it rich dark hue for a very long time after installation. And incidentally, the glossy black color of asphalt is very much attractive than a concrete pavement. Further information can be found by following the company at
