Driveway Pricing Guide

The cost to install a driveway can range from $3.50 to $26 per square foot. Prices may vary based on the 1) size of the driveway, 2) the driveway material, and 3) the cost of labor.

Here are the national average costs of various material types:

Driveway Installation Costs by Material
Cost of Asphalt Driveway $2.62 to $4.40 per sq. ft.
Cost of Concrete Driveway $3.73 to $7.35 per sq. ft.
Cost of Gravel Driveway $1.28 to $1.70 per sq. ft.
Cost of Interlocking Paver Driveway $7.23 - $15.79 per sq. ft.
Cost of Brick Paver Driveway $10.42 to $18.73 per sq. ft.
Cost of Natural Stone Driveway $10.88 to $11.81 per sq. ft.

Items that impact the cost of driveway installation:

  • Driveway size: The size of the driveway will have a major impact on the cost of materials and labor. How many cars need to fit in the driveway? Driveway installation is typically priced by the square foot – so you will need to know the desired length and width.

  • Driveway layout and design: Is the driveway going to be long and flat? Steep? Circular? Keep in mind that it is usually easiest to pave flat, rectangular areas. Hilly terrain and curvy designs may increase the cost of driveway construction.

  • Material selection: Driveways can be built with pavers, concrete, asphalt, gravel, and many other materials. These materials can range in price from $2.99 per square foot to over $40 per square foot. A blacktop driveway is going to be significantly cheaper than a stamped concrete driveway.

  • Local labor costs: Labor rates can vary significantly by region. Wages tend to be highest in major metropolitan areas where the cost of living is well above the national average.

  • Site preparation: Has the land already been cleared to build the driveway? What type of excavation and grading work needs to be done before construction can begin? Are there any concerns about proper drainage?

  • Mobilization fees: What type of equipment is required for the job? Is the job located within the contractor's normal service area or will a fuel surcharge be applied to the final bill?
Although cost is one of the most important factors to consider in the decision-making process, it is not the only factor. Before selecting which type of driveway to install, it's important to think about these items as well.

  1. Weather and climate: Frequent freezing and thawing may cause concrete to crack. Extremely warm temperatures can cause asphalt to become too soft.

  2. Local regulations and HOA guidelines: Certain towns and cities set specific rules about which driveway materials can be used. Homeowner's associations, in particular, can be particularly strict when it comes to regulating the appearance of driveways.

  3. Driveway use: If you plan to park heavy, commercial vehicles on the driveway, additional steps may need to be taken during the construction process to support the extra weight. If you plan to install a basketball hoop, it may be important to have a large flat driveway.

Asphalt Driveway Pros & Cons

Asphalt paving is both affordable and durable - making it a very popular driveway material.

Freeze-thaw cycles are usually not a problem.

Three advantages of installing an asphalt driveway:
  1. Very cost-effective
  2. Straight-forward installation process
  3. Can last upwards of 20 years
Three disadvantages of installing an asphalt driveway:
  1. Limited design choices
  2. Requires some regular maintenance
  3. May begin to crack or sag over time

How Much Does Asphalt Driveway Resurfacing Cost?

Resurfacing an asphalt driveway usually costs $1.49 to $1.70 per square foot. The cost of driveway resurfacing will depend on the current condition of the driveway, local labor costs, and the size of the driveway (measured by the square foot).

Resurfacing is often a cheaper alternative to ripping out the old driveway and building a new one from scratch. It can give your driveway an updated look without the expense of total replacement. A driveway should only be resurfaced if the overall structural integrity is still intact. If the base is already failing, resurfacing may not be a good option.



Average Asphalt Resurfacing Prices
Arlington, TX$1.42 - $1.61 per sq. ft.
Boston, MA$1.89 - $2.15 per sq. ft.
Charlotte, NC$1.33 - $1.51 per sq. ft.
