Several factors affect the cost of asphalt paving. For that reason, we cannot supply an estimate for your specific project until we review the details. Some sites require more preparatory work than others, and the cost also depends on how you plan to use a parking area. Material and labor expenses vary from time to time as well.
How Much Does Asphalt Paving Cost – What Is the Process
The asphalt paving process costs more if we need to add a gravel base or grade the surface. These tasks ensure proper drainage and provide a solid foundation for the asphalt pavement. However, such work requires additional machinery, supplies and labor. The total expense will also rise if your site contains old asphalt that must be removed before we add new pavement.
When we estimate the cost of asphalt paving, we have to consider the square footage and thickness. You will need thicker pavement if you expect high levels of vehicular traffic in the parking area. Thick asphalt also proves necessary for very heavy vehicles, such as dump trucks and buses. Petroleum is used to manufacture asphalt, so current oil prices affect the cost as well.
Some parking areas benefit from extra features that improve safety and convenience. You may choose to install parking signs, bollards, pavement markings or speed bumps. Both concrete and granite curbs are suitable for Houston’s climate. Granite costs more than concrete, but it offers greater durability and enhances your parking lot’s appearance.
