Frequently asked questions
How much does residential asphalt paving cost?
Asphalt paving costs $3 to $7 per square foot for a driveway or parking lot. An average asphalt driveway costs $1,200 to $6,000 installed. The average cost to pave a private one-lane asphalt road is $35 to $85 per linear foot.
A tar and chip driveway costs $2 to $5 per square foot and features crushed stone spread over liquid asphalt.
Is asphalt paving cheaper than concrete?
An asphalt driveway is cheaper than concrete, at $3 to $7 per square foot. In comparison, concrete driveway contractors charge $4 to $8 per square foot for installation. Concrete is more expensive than asphalt because of the price of its cement binder materials.
How long does asphalt paving last?
Asphalt paving lasts 15 to 30 years, depending on the climate, maintenance, traffic, asphalt grade, foundation and installation quality, drainage, and soil type. Asphalt deteriorates fastest when water freezes and thaws inside the pavement's cracks.
Does a paved driveway add value to a home?
Installing a paved driveway adds value and curb appeal to a home. Paving a driveway has an average 50% to 75% return on investment.
Should I resurface or replace my asphalt driveway?
Paving companies recommend replacement when the asphalt is beyond repair, or the cost of repairs exceeds the cost of new asphalt installation.
Replace asphalt driveways when:
- The driveway is more than 15 to 20 years old.
- More than 30% of the surface needs repairs.
- Cracks are more than 0.25" wide and 2" deep.
- The asphalt is crumbling and is impossible to patch.
- The asphalt foundation is settling or swelling, causing depressions, potholes, and upheaval.
- Existing patches are starting to fail.
How do I find local paving companies?
Start by searching our list of paving contractors near you. After researching and contacting pros:
- Compare at least three estimates from paving companies.
- Ask for recommendations from family, friends, and neighbors.
- Select pavers that are licensed, bonded, and experienced.
- Beware of companies that pave by hand instead of with paving machines.
- Discuss your sub-base foundation options. Make sure the company compacts a 4-inch base with a vibratory roller before paving.
- Avoid companies offering discounts by selling old, leftover asphalt.
- Verify their insurance, worker’s compensation, and bond guarantees.
- Look at their reviews on HomeGuide, Google, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
- Choose a certified company affiliated with the state’s Department of Transportation asphalt training programs, the National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT), or similar road-construction education programs.
- Ask about their warranties and guarantees.
- Ask for a written contract, warranty, and detailed estimate.
- Don’t pay in full before the work begins. Come up with a payment schedule for work completed.
After asking questions and verifying their credentials, hire the most affordable and best asphalt companies near you.
