Asphalt paving installation
If your old driveway is in bad condition or you simply want to add to your home’s curb appeal, new asphalt paving can give it a fresh new look. Practical and cost-effective, asphalt paving is easy to care for but not easy to install, so you’ll need to call in driveway contractors to ensure the job is done properly. Once it’s complete, your new asphalt driveway could last 15 years or more, making this an investment that’s well worth the cost.

Cost to install an asphalt driveway
The cost to install an asphalt driveway, also known as a blacktop driveway, depends on the surface area and whether you are installing, replacing or resurfacing. The average cost is between $3,000 and $5,500*.
With costs often charged by the square foot at an average of $3 to $5*, the size of your driveway is the most significant factor in determining how much you will pay for this project.
Another thing to consider when planning your asphalt driveway installation is its surroundings – removing trees or fixing existing draining problems can add to the cost.
Asphalt is cheaper to install than a concrete driveway. Base coats cost around $2.50 or less per square foot while the top cost can cost from $1 to $2.50*. Sealant usually costs extra.
