Frequently Asked Questions

Some commonly asked questions

We are unable to provide a quote over the phone. This is because every job is unique and the cost is based on a number of factors such as:

  • The work required to construct or improve a driveway or road base
  • The type, weight, and frequency of vehicles using your driveway
  • The thickness of the asphalt required
  • Asphalt colour preference
  • Requested timeline for completion
  • The distance we have to mobilise and transport our equipment.

Typically, asphalt is more cost-effective than concrete and cheaper to maintain, however concrete may last longer. Based on its usage, our team of experts may recommend using concrete for your driveway but ultimately, it’s up to you.

No. This is a common mistake. Asphalt is a mix of aggregate and bitumen. Bitumen is an ingredient of asphalt and effectively works to bind the materials in the asphalt mix.

The time required to build an asphalt driveway can vary depending on the size and condition of your driveway and driveway base (or pavement base), and how much civil work is required to prepare for asphalting.

For most driveways, the asphalting can be concluded within a day. If civil work is required to prepare the base, timeframes are more likely to extend to 1-3 days.

Yes, we can provide recycled asphalt. Recycled asphalt can be a cost-effective alternative to newly laid asphalt, but it must be prepared and laid properly.
