Asphalt, it has stick-to-itive-ness
Cost drives nearly every decision made. It may be true that if you have to ask how much something costs you probably can’t afford it, but to not be concerned over what something will cost is unreasonable. So in deciding if asphalt is for you, first ask yourself; do you want to invest in your future by adding value to your home?
Well why would anyone say no to that?
With the decision made to asphalt where do you go first? You are here! Asphalt costs of course vary depending on where you live, how far the contractor must haul the asphalt, how deep or thick you will need it to be, how good of a base you already have or need.
Starting with the base. A good solid sub-base that is level, (except of course if you are on a hill), contoured slightly to the outside so that when the asphalt is laid water will not puddle, and have no pot holes, or if there are pot holes the need to be filled and compacted so they do not cause new pot holes in your new asphalt.
The asphalt it’s self will cost, as per Cost Helper between $2 and $5 per square foot. Always, when doing a project around the house pencil in the larger amount to your budget. You will save some hair pulling out times if you over budget instead of under budget a project.
