The Short Answer: An asphalt driveway runs between $1.93 and $6.26 Per Sq Ft nationwide.
The Real Answer: It depends on many factors. Is it a brand new asphalt driveway on virgin ground or are you removing an replacing an existing asphalt driveway? Or are you overlaying (adding an additional layer) to an existing asphalt driveway?
Once the type of paving is determined, then, the size of the driveway, the amount of excavating and grading for proper water drainage, how much repair needs to be done before overlaying the driveway, the distance from the asphalt plant and the thickness of the asphalt all make each driveway price unique.
Also, price per Sq Ft increases as the size of a driveway decreases. The smaller the driveway, the higher the cost. The bigger the driveway, the lower the cost. This is due to the fixed costs associated with a driveway business.
