Asphalt and Cost
Asphalt and cost are issues which depend on the location of your project, type of asphalt used, and size of your project, to name a few of the factors.
The location is one of the important factors because asphalt needs to be spread when its hot.
If your project is located too far from the asphalt manufacturing plant, the asphalt company may either not be able to do your project at all, or they may need to use a movable manufacturing plant, which is quite a rare piece of equipment, and mostly used in scarcely populated areas.
Normally, you're in luck if there is a asphalt crew already working nearby, as it means you can just call and get the crew to work on your driveway when they are ready to move to another location.
That movement of asphalt crew and equipment is quite expensive, and can easily cost more than a smaller project would cost otherwise.
You can get the price of your asphalt project down by ordering together with your neighbors. This is because the size of the location to be paved is one of the factors in pricing.
The bigger the project, the less it will cost per square feet (meter).
Finally, there are several types of asphalt that is possible to use. This one is very much up to the judgment of the contractor, as they have to meet the standards for pavements in your state, meaning they cannot make of asphalt type that will not last according to the required quality.
