Asphalt Driveway FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right asphalt driveway company for your job

1. Is asphalt good for driveways?

There are plenty of benefits to using asphalt for your driveways. Compared to concrete, asphalt’s most significant advantage is its cost-effectiveness, fast installation and flexibility. It’s also easier to repair than concrete driveways.

  • Cost-effective. An asphalt driveway is about 40% less expensive than a concrete driveway. If you also hire asphalt driveway contractors, you will still be charged less because it is less labour-intensive.
  • Fast installation. Laying an asphalt driveway will only take about one to 2 days. Also, unlike concrete driveways, you don’t need to wait for a week to finally be able to use it. As soon as it’s laid, you can immediately drive on it.
  • Flexible. Shaping asphalt into curves and corners is easy. This way, forming tight seals and reducing gaps to prevent debris and water penetration is also easier. It’s also weather-resistant that it expands and shrinks depending on extreme weather conditions.
  • Easier to repair. Applying a new topcoat of asphalt to heavily marred or older surfaces are more manageable than concrete.
 

2. How much is it for an asphalt driveway?

Residential asphalt driveways cost around an average of $25 to $45 per square meter. The cost will depend on the factors listed below:

  • Size of the project. A shorter driveway will cost less than a longer one. Here, the amount of asphalt needed will be put into consideration. A shorter driveway will, of course, need less asphalt than longer ones.
  • Project location. The cost will depend on what state you are in and how far you are from the asphalt production facility. Below are the average prices of installing asphalt driveways per state.
    • $25 per square metre for Western Australia
    • $30 per square metre for South Australia
    • $30 - $40 per square metre for Northern Territory
    • $40 per square metre for Queensland
    • $45 per square metre for New South Wales
  • Type of asphalt material. There are three types of asphalt, and finding the right mix will depend on the location and the type of driveway your project requires.
    • Warm Mix Asphalt Concrete - used for low traffic areas or patching old surfaces.
    • Hot Mix Asphalt Concrete - the most durable asphalt material suitable for high traffic areas.
    • Mastic Asphalt - commonly used for sidewalks, residential roads, driveways and roofing.
 

3. How many years does an asphalt driveway last?

When done by an expert, an asphalt driveway will usually last an average of 12-30 years. It will also depend on the type of asphalt used as well as traffic conditions. However, if it is well-maintained, it will have a longer lifespan. Maintenance includes sealing cracks and holes, power washing and scrubbing the surface at least twice a year, and re-sealing the surface every 2 to 5 years.
