Is concrete better than asphalt for a driveway?

Concrete driveways last longer than the asphalt driveways. However, concrete is relatively expensive to install compared to some materials. Besides, concrete can easily crack during winter or suffer damage in case you use the wrong de-icing products.
On the other hand, Asphalt is flexible and less likely to crack. However, it requires more maintenance than concrete. A well-installed and maintained Asphalt driveway can last up to 25 years.
