Just because you can, doesn’t mean you always should.
Its best to let things be until you can afford to have it fixed right!
Can you put asphalt on top of concrete? Yes, but should you do it?
While concrete may be a good, solid base material once cured. There is a clear difference of when to do it and not to do it.
Some roads are paved with asphalt over top of concrete.
The key difference is that most of the time concrete is poured SPECIFICALLY to have asphalt paved over it.
A 30 year old concrete driveway that has wide cracks and is falling apart may not be the best surface to pave asphalt over.
Yes, you may get a few more years out of the driveway, but in the end you’re just creating a bigger mess to clean up in the future.
Not only mess, but costs too!
Asphalt plants will refuse any load of to-be-recycled asphalt if it has the the smallest amount of non-asphalt material in it.
So in order to keep things rolling, we have to physically separate the asphalt from the concrete, this adds time and time adds costs!
