When you consider repairing or replacing your driveway, the first concern that comes to mind is the cost of the new driveway. You can have the driveway made from different materials such as concrete, gravel, or paver bricks. In this video, we’re narrowing down to the most common and economical driveways – asphalt.
How much will a new asphalt driveway cost you? Here we illustrate a pretty easy way of getting an estimate. Any paving company calculates its charges according to the square footage of the driveway. The driveway here measures 20 feet by 30 feet, and by multiplying the two you have 600 square footage.
The charges per square footage range from $3 to $4. This covers the cost of removing the old driveway and installing the new one. The project cost here is estimated to be between $1800 and $2400.
Step out and measure the length and width of your driveway, and multiply the two to get the square footage. From there, you can calculate the approximate cost. The paving company may vary the charges depending on your location, the status of your old driveway, and other factors. Overall, this technique gives you an estimate, so you can budget appropriately.
