Cheap Ways to Pave a Driveway

Updated:2013-09-23 15:52:03

There are many different types of materials for paving a driveway, from concrete and asphalt to paving stones and crusher run. Other inexpensive do-it-yourself alternatives, such as permeable paving, offer additional options. But when determining cheap ways to pave a driveway, the size and design of your driveway and a cost comparison of initial paving price to overall required regular maintenance material expenses should be considered.

                                                       

Concrete versus Asphalt

Concrete and asphalt are the most common materials used in driveway paving. When comparing the two, asphalt paving is the cheapest and most durable. It also performs better in changing weather conditions.
Asphalt is made from fine sand, small stones and asphalt cement. It is applied as a hot, thick, liquid tar, which allows it to expand and contract as needed. As a result, it is less likely to heave or crack.
The price of asphalt is cheaper than concrete and, because it is fast installing, labor costs are low. However, as with concrete, asphalt may need to be re-sealed or re-layered as a result of wear and tear.
You can further reduce the price of asphalt paving by asking an asphalt company working in your area to do your driveway right after they finish their current job. If they have enough asphalt left over, the company generally agrees to the request.
Another way to save is to ask neighbors on your street or in the immediate area if they need asphalt paving work done. You can lower everyone's cost by requesting a bid for the larger size job.
