FAQS about Residential Paving
The lifespan of an asphalt driveway depends on several factors—including the contractor’s expertise, the materials that are used, and the level at which you maintain your surface over its life. Well-paved, properly maintained asphalt driveways can last for up to 25 years or more.
The terms “asphalt” and “blacktop” are often used interchangeably, as the two use the same materials—bitumen and crushed aggregate. They use different ratios of these materials, however, and are heated at different temperatures. Typically, asphalt is used for high-traffic applications, while blacktop is used for low-traffic applications—such as residential driveways, basketball courts, and other residential surfaces.
The overall cost of asphalt will depend on the size of your surface, as well as your contractor’s rates. For most residential paving projects, you can expect your pavement to cost roughly $5 – $10 per square foot including materials and labor.
For most residential paving projects, asphalt works out to be significantly cheaper than concrete. Typically, an asphalt driveway will cost roughly two-thirds to one-half of the price of concrete.
There are several types of asphalt commonly used for paving and repairs. Hot-mix asphalt is the most common type of asphalt and is used on most paving projects. Cold-mix, UPM, porous, and dense-graded asphalt may be used for certain applications.
A high-quality residential driveway always requires a sturdy base. While there are few different base material options for asphalt, different types of crushed gravel are the most popular choices.
While paving requirements are largely dependent on location, traffic volume, and other factors, two to four inches of asphalt is more than enough for most residential driveways. Underneath the asphalt, there should be another six to eight inches of base materials.
