Asphalt / Blacktop Driveway
Just wanted to get some opinions out there...I am getting quotes (3 so far) for getting my driveway paved. I have a bit of sticker shock so far and just wondering if anyone thinks the price is going to stay the same, go up, or down within the next 6 mnths to year? I know that petroleum (ie price of gas) is probably contributing a lot to the price of getting this done.
One more thing, a contractor stopped by (on his own, I did not call for quote) sometime either last fall or last summer. He gave me his business card and while he was there I asked him for a quote off the top of his head and he wrote down an estimate on the back of the card. I just had the same contractor out at the house for another estimate last night and the price is 3k higher? Wow....Now just to add to that I wanted to add a couple of things that I probably did not mention (like widening the driveway a few feet and bringing up a slope to almost level) but come on 3k more.....geez
Any thoughts out there...?
