Asphalt Driveway Options

Paving a driveway with asphalt is about 1/3 cheaper than paving with concrete. Keep in mind that asphalt itself is a lower quality material and will not last as long as concrete so you are getting a higher quality and more durable product when choosing concerete over asphalt. Here are the different types of driveway installations.

  • Install New Driveway - For new homes or homes with dirt driveways. A brand new driveway will be rolled out onto your property. Price for asphalt is typically $2.00 to $3.00 per square foot.
  • Completely Replace Old Driveway - For those driveways that can not be revived with resurfacing. This project involves ripping out the old driveway, hauling away the old material, and installing a brand new driveway. Prices range from $3.00 to $4.00 per square foot.
  • Resurfacing Existing Driveway - Already have a driveway that has cracks and holes? Resurfacing is the most cost effective solution if you driveway is still repairable. Prices range from $1.00 to $1.50 per square foot.

The cost of driveway installation, replacement, or resurfacing will vary significantly by the type and grade of material for asphalt and concrete. In addition, price varies by thickness and length of driveway as well as the underlying foundation. Always consult multiple driveway and paving contractors to get the best idea on price.
