The price for a new driveway can depend on many factors - your location, the size of the drive, the slope, the length, and more.

So, a new asphalt drive could cost you approximately $1 to $5 per square foot.

If your driveway were 12 by 40 feet, the cost would range from $480 to $2400. However, there may be additional costs to cover preparation of the site, including the addition of your base of crushed gravel.

Again, slopes, curves, and other complications can increase the cost to add a new blacktop driveway. Make sure the costs to remove any existing driveway are factored into your estimate.

TIP - To save even more money, reach out to the other homeowners in your neighborhood to see if any of your neighbors need a new asphalt driveway or to have their old blacktop redone. The costs to haul the equipment to the site could be shared by several neighbors.


To obtain a quote, please contact us so that we can give consideration to all factors influencing cost.

The Most Important Step for Asphalt Drives - Before the first bit of blacktop is layed, make sure you have a good foundation. The base of crushed gravel beneath your drive must be at least 4 to 8 inches deep.  It must be compacted.  And it must extend out past the final size of your asphalt driveway. Many make the base only as large as the drive and sections near the edge eventually break off. Don't skimp on the base.

What is Asphalt? Asphalt, or blacktop, is a combination of little pieces of rock, sand, and asphalt cement. Even though it's called blacktop in many areas, it usually looks more gray than anything.  A closer look will reveal the gray color comes from the pieces of rock.  The cement in between the rock is where you'll find the black shades.



Asphalt driveways need regular maintenance to make sure they last a long time. Sealcoating is a way to make sure your blacktop lasts. Benefits of Sealcoating your drive include:

  • Improving the Look: Sealcoating your driveway will return oils to the asphalt, which will bring back the dark black color.
  • Surface Protection: Your vehicles can leak fluids on the driveway surface and resealing it will protect the drive from gasoline and oil.
  • Prevent Damage: Water and air can penetrate the asphalt to break it down internally. Sealcoating fills voids to prevent cracks.
  • Keep it Easy to Clean: As sealcoating fills voids and gaps in the surface - it makes it easier to remove dirt, debris, snow and ice.
  • Keep Costs Down: The rising price of oil makes a replacement or overlay of new asphalt more expensive. Sealcoating it will allow your driveway to last much longer and save you money in the long run.
