What’s the difference between asphalt and concrete?

Asphalt is a pavement structure consisting of aggregates, fines and a binder of liquid asphalt. The material is applied hot and is cured once it cools. Concrete is a pavement structure consisting of cement, aggregates, water and chemical admixtures. The material is applied cold and is cured once the water evaporates out. Generally, concrete is more expensive to install, but it also will have a longer lifespan.
