Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much are asphalt driveways?

On average, an asphalt driveway costs between $3 and $5 per square foot. That means a small 10’x20’ driveway, which is big enough for a single car, will probably cost you between $600 and $1,000. 

However, the total cost of your asphalt driveway will depend on several factors. Get free estimates from asphalt driveway contractors to find out exactly how you can expect to spend.

Is there a difference between blacktop and asphalt?

Yes, there’s a subtle difference between the two. Asphalt typically refers to the material used for streets and highways, while blacktop usually refers to residential roads, driveways and parking lots. Both contain the same two main ingredients — crushed stone and bitumen — but when compared to regular asphalt, blacktop has a higher concentration of stone. Blacktop also gets heated to a slightly higher temperature of around 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

How long do asphalt driveways last?

The lifespan of a typical asphalt driveway is between 12 and 20 years. However, some companies say they can last up to 30 to 35 years. 

Your driveway’s longevity will depend on several factors. The first is the quality of the installation. An asphalt driveway is only as good as its underlayment, drainage and root management. 

The next is maintenance. Keeping the driveway clean is imperative, and any cracks should be immediately sealed to prevent water infiltration and freeze-thaw cycles. Lastly, the amount of use and heavy equipment on the asphalt can impact how long it lasts.
