  ASPHALT DRIVEWAY PRICING
Pricing of installing an asphalt driveway vary from company to company. The reason for this is the quality and quantity of material used and the price of labor.

STONE OR RCA. The price difference between quality RCA (stone) and poor quality stone is that quality stone costs up to 20 times more then cheap stone.

The importance of using good stone is imperative to long life and good wear to your new driveway. poor quality or cheap stone has a large concentration of dirt and biodegradable material. Dirt hold seedling of grass and weeds. Hot asphalt stimulates the seedlings to grow, pushing and breaking thru the asphalt. Biodegradable material quickly degenerates leaving air pockets in your stone base. The air pockets eventually collapse causing the asphalt to settle and crack.

Prices of hot asphalt material vary slightly, using large quantity of material may save some money, but generally it amounts to a few percent. Savings on asphalt occurs in what we call the yield. The yield is the amount of material used per sq. ft. One ton of good quality asphalt at 1" should cover approx 18 sq. yds. This is called a yield of 18. Generally speaking a driveway requires a yield of 9 or 2" of hot material.

Companies practicing a large yield can save thousands of dollars per day.A driveway constructed with cheap stone and a thin layer of asphalt will look just as beautiful as the next...but for how long?

If you have gotten a cheap price, consider why? Using good common sense and a call to Consumer Affairs will tell.
