    Whats a fair price to pay for paving?

    I'm looking to have a 18x70 area paved. It would need to be excavated out and graded base laid down and compacted. Also a ramp up to the shed area. Total area is about 1250 sq feet.

    I had a company bid it and it came back to about $2.53 per square foot. Does that sound reasonable?

    One other reputable company just passed on the job as it was too small.

    That sounds like a good deal. I am in a little different situation. I have a paved driveway but need to replace the older section one of these years. One of the fathers in my son's Cub Scouts is part owner of a paving company that does driveways and parking lots. I spoke to him and he said $3-4 per sq depending on how good my base is. He came out and looked at it and said I have a good base so $3/sq and I have 5000 sq/ft to do so I am looking at $15K. Time to save up. In my case they have to rip up the existing and fix one small pot hole area and pave.

    Of course there will be some fluctuation based on location.

    $2.53 a square foot is almost EXACTLY what I paid for the tigerwood floors in our house,,,



    Maybe you ought to put down hardwood??

    You would think gravel would cost less than milled,,, nailed, sanded, finished, trimmed wood?

    The gravel does have 10% tar mixed in,,,,

    15 years ago when my driveway was done it was $1 per square foot. Concrete was $2 per square foot. I went concrete. So $2.53 does not sound bad at all.

    Are we talking paving in concrete or asphalt (HMA)?????

    For that level of work, in concrete at (4" thick?) $2.53/sft sounds like a deal to me!

    If it's HMA, there are too many variables to tell- thickness, type of mixtures, number of layers placed, etc. Though any type of paveing worth anything is a decent deal at your $2.53/sft quote.

    Last year there was a new place built a couple roads over (not a booming area we live in!) and they were going to pave the driveway with asphalt. The paving outfit stopped by in a neighborhood canvas looking for other work while they were in the area. My driveway is asphalt and is cracked pretty bad from the garage past the house and out to the road, from the garage to the barn its in pretty good shape. They quoted me $2 per square foot to basically carpet coat and "relevel" the driveway surface with asphalt. I didn't think the price was bad and redoing the driveway is on our list, but way down our list. This outfit was from about 45 minutes away. I had always planned on using one of the local paving company's that we do business with at work. They aren't the cheapest, but don't cut corners and have a solid reputation. Good Luck.

    I just paid $3.25 /sq ft for 4" 3000 psi with steel mesh and broom finish to have a drive poured to my garage. If I remember right, it was a 15 yard pour. IMO, a beautiful job.

    My experience with asphalt is you will need yearly maintenance and it will likely need to be replaced within 10 years.

    Seriously consider concrete you won't be disappointed next year or 10 years from now.

    Does it have to be paved in concrete or asphalt?

    A few years ago I redid our recycled asphalt driveway with recycled concrete. As I recall the area was about 4,000 square feet to a depth of 3" - 4". I think we put down about 150-tons at a cost of $14 a ton, which equals $2,100.

    A poured concrete driveway would have been about $20,000.
