Is concrete better than Asphalt for a driveway?

Concrete driveways tend to last longer than the asphalt driveways, however are normally more expensive to construct. Concrete can also tend to crack during winter or suffer damage in case you use the wrong de-icing protection.
On the other hand, Asphalt is flexible, and therefore less likely to crack. However, it requires more maintenance than concrete. But it is easier to repair. A well constructed and maintained Asphalt driveway can last up to 25 years.
