My neighbour is getting quotes for surfacing his driveway. He's getting contractors offering him either a bitumen surface or an asphalt one for about 50% extra cost (may have that the wrong way round).
He's asked me and I've no idea what the difference between the two is and I've no idea. From some brief searches it seems a bit confusing i.e. bitumen is used to make asphalt?
Can anyone advise on the difference and would you recommend it? The two prices are about £1,500 vs £2,300 or thereabouts?
