Yeah, I understand. Imperfections in concrete drive me CRAZY, but not as much in asphalt. I think when I get my next home I'll shoot for concrete but we will see.

I want more yard and woods with my next house so who knows what I'll end up with.

Hey, how did that shed turn out?

once I got a gutted cat on there though she was lots of fun, no blower related issues other than the whole rest of the car being cursed.

i miss my old focus, wouldn't mind old focus manual once my lease is up. No car payment and more money to dump into the house

Both require a good solid base to build off of. I dislike asphalt as it's a lot of upkeep and tends to not last as long, along with everything having tar stuck to it. You also can't use jacks and stands in the summer on asphalt without risk of denting into the surface.
I'm not sure about that, I've used jackstands on an f150 in my driveway in the summer (currently asphalt) and it didnt dent at all. I don't know, for some reason cracks in concrete bother me so much more than asphalt. Bottom line, I don't have the money for concrete so I don't really know why I am wagering lol. It will need to be sealed every couple years and sure, have to patch here and there but idk, that's one saturday every two years.

I can't afford the concrete, and I don't see why at all concrete would be better when I already have existing asphalt and it is so much cheaper. Plus, I won't be in this house when I have kids and they are old enough to go to school.

Chas There aren't any rules, it's not serious business. I made my point and I do not think I am wrong, you can keep posting anywhere about anything, not my place to stop you.
