Re: OT-Cost to pave a driveway?
Well thanks for all your opinions. No need to worry about city ordinances here in the "Live Free or Die" state barfnick. Most driveways here in NH are asphalt, and paver's are nice but way out of my budget. Besides, they have paver's in some areas at my work and they have a heck of a time with snow removal in the winter. I do realize concrete would be the way to go if cost wasn't an object, but for me it is so asphalt will have to do. I'll still have my concrete garage floor to work on my Jeep, the pavement is just for parking and to give my 1 1/2 year old a smooth place to ride his tricycle.
Thanks for the costs joeycj5 and lindy80cj7, that's really what I was looking for. Sounds like prices in NY are closer to NH than PA. I got a quote from a local company today that equaled out to about $1.75/sq ft. They'll even remove my old cracked concrete drive and smooth everything out with new hard pack. That's good enough for me and they came with excellent references not to mention I was able to squeeze into their schedule for next week thanks to a cancellation. I fully expected to have to wait months to get onto someone's schedule. And yes, jdoggmoney I have heard of those traveling "gypsy" paving companies so staying local was a priority of mine.
