Asphalt is a common driveway material. It’s reasonably durable (20 years), relatively inexpensive (compared to concrete) and if you’re willing to invest in dressing it up with special surfaces, it can look really good.
The issue is how much will your asphalt driveway cost? We can help. Below we offer a free asphalt driveway cost calculator that bases the cost on square footage, driveway features, gravel needs and excavation needs.
Please note the the listed assumptions below and keep in mind due to many variables, our calculator should be used only as a guideline. The resulting calculation is not a quote for services, but is merely a free tool to give you a rough idea as to what your asphalt driveway may cost.
Asphalt Driveway Cost Calculator
- Asphalt cost: $4.00 per square foot. This can vary depending on how thick it’s applied and the region in which you live.
- Special features: The calculator above assumes the cost of a Chip Seal top coat, stamped surface or color asphalt at $4.00 per square foot. This is probably a tad on the high side, but is within range.
- Gravel: We assume gravel will cost $2.50 per square foot. Again, this can vary according to gravel thickness, quality and region.
- Excavation: We assume an excavation cost, if necessary, at $2,000. Again, this can vary considerably according to amount of ground to excavate, slopes, terrain material, region, etc.
