Asphalt Driveway Resurfacing - Is $1.67/SF Fair ?
An asphalt paver in the Northern VA area just gave me a price quote of $5,495 for applying a 2 1/2 inch layer of state approved asphalt on my 20-year old driveway with 3,285 suare feet, and I'm wondering if this price is fair. That works out to about $1.67 per square foot. Here is his complete proposal:
1. trim grass back along edges
2. remove loose broken asphalt as needed and patch, roll
& compact (60 sf)
3. cut back existing asphalt at transition points, etc.
4. clean complete surface of dirt and debris
5. apply tack coat to bond new asphalt with old
6. even up low and uneven areas (440 sf)
7. resurface with 2 1/2 inches of SM-9.5A V-DOT state
approved asphalt machine installed with hand finished
8. rolled and compacted with static rollers for maximum
9. handstamp edges at approx. 45 degree angle for extra
- widen at apron on both sides (60 sf)
The quote seems high to me, but with today's soaring oil prices, maybe the asphalt has just gone up that much. I was budgeting for a quote at about $3,500 only.
Thanks for any feedback.
