Below we will discuss the factors that can affect the price of your asphalt driveway project in Sydney further:
Asphalt Installation Price Factors
While the average cost for asphalt driveways is relatively low, there are several factors that can affect the final price for any project involving this material, specifically if homeowners are laying down a new driveway. The following list outlines some of these common factors that can impact asphalt paving costs.
Factors such as freight, the current market price, and fuel surcharges all impact the raw price of material used for your parking lot or driveway.
Drainage and other additions: the life of any paved surface improves with proper drainage.
Base Coat: At minimum, plan on two coats, base and top, for any job. The higher the material quality and the more time spent on the base, the longer the life of the paved surface will be. This costs $1-$2.50 per square foot.
Specialized Top Coats and Sealants: General top coats and sealants cost between $1-$2.50 per square foot.
Special features such as chip seal and stamped or colored topcoats add another $3-$5 per square foot.
Excavation and Clearing: If no current surface exists, workers need to make sure there is adequate room for the new pavement.
Foundation: Installing 8-10 inches of gravel below the asphalt is necessary for drainage. This can add on $1-$2.50 per square foot of surface area.
Asphalt driveways cost per square metre
The cost for asphalt driveways can range from $25.00 AUD per square meter to $55.00 per square meter.
This depends on the thickness of asphalt required as well as how much preparation is needed for the area.
Asphalt driveways pros and cons
One of the tradeoffs with asphalt is that you should seal it every few years for proper maintenance, while concrete is essentially maintenance-free.
On the flip side, because asphalt is a petroleum product, it is more flexible and less susceptible to cracking than concrete. It is often used in car parks and tarmac jobs.
Asphalt driveway vs bitumen paving
Asphalt can also get hot in the summer. Bitumen may be more suitable for country estate driveways that are very long. As bitumen is a more affordable material, you can enjoy cost savings by choosing a bitumen driveway. Consider these and other factors to help decide whether or not asphalt is a good choice for your driveway.
Blacktop sealer is also available for bitumen roads.
