Many homeowners today are selecting asphalt paving for their home's driveway and even exterior walkways and patios, versus standard concrete. Asphalt has many advantages over other driveway paving materials and is often one of the most affordable options available for homeowners today.
The cost of an asphalt driveway typically averages between $2 and $7 per square foot and will depend on the property's current condition as well as the amount or thickness of asphalt you have installed. Various aggregates can also be added to asphalt's surface by asphalt paving companies, for increased traction or a more pleasing overall appearance, and these might also add to that cost.
Before you decide if the cost of hiring asphalt paving contractors is a good investment for your home, note some advantages of asphalt over concrete, how asphalt is maintained over the years, and how to determine the best amount or thickness of asphalt to add for your home's driveway.
