How To Successfully Install An Asphalt Driveway

Asphalt edging helps to maintain the edge of an asphalt driveway however its important to understand asphalt as a material before committing to the surface and purchasing edging.

What An Asphalt Driveway Is?

Asphalt is a tar-like material made from petroleum and is very similar to the material you have seen used for roads. Often referred to as hot mix asphalt, this is an aggregate of stone and sand along with a mixture of asphalt. The asphalt is heated over 300° F to turn into liquid. The crew must work quickly or the mixture does not become solid.

Hot mix asphalt is not a sealant or crack sealer for driveways. Sealants and sealers are only surface treatments for repairing or renewing an asphalt driveway. Also, this is not a tar and chip method which is similar to traditional paving but there are more choices in texture and colors to choose from, outside of black.

There are asphalt patching materials that are somewhat like a hot mix but the material is not heated before its applied and it cures differently. As a homeowner, you can repair or reseal your asphalt driveway but installing a new asphalt driveway is not something you can easily do on your own.

The Pros And Cons:


Flexibility - Asphalt is more flexible than concrete and less prone to cracking. Due to its flexibility, it takes longer for cracks to appear.

Less Expensive - All in all, asphalt is less expensive than concrete

Hardier In Winter - That means asphalt is less likely to become damaged by rock salt or when the ice starts to melt.

Sets Faster - Asphalt sets faster than concrete because it hardens by cooling not by curing.

DIY Fixes - When it comes to resurfacing asphalt, you can do it yourself using a driveway sealant. Concrete cannot be thinly resurfaced by you.


Resale Value Is Lower - Asphalt compared to concrete does not seem to cut it with homebuyers. In general, concrete is considered to hold a higher value.

Uneven Edges - Unless you install concrete edging to keep the hot mix in place, the edges will be far from perfect.

Plants - While not a common occurrence, there are some plants that will manage to grow through the asphalt, one being Bamboo.

Asphalt Base Installation

Asphalt driveways must have a good base to work from. If you have an unstable base it will quickly create problems. Here are 3 main choices for base installation:

Install the asphalt paving on your existing driveway

If your current driveway is in good condition and not seriously loaded with cracks or crumbling, you can take hot mix asphalt and lay it directly on top of the driveway.

When installing you should consider the height. You have to make sure the garage floors, fences, or other structures will not be affected by the higher level of the new surface.

Remove the Old Driveway Then Pave the Soil

This is a great option if your driveway is completely removed or you don't have one. You need to apply 4 to 6 inches of mixed paving directly on top of the soil. This is a fast and inexpensive approach but it's less stable.

Remove the Old Driveway and Place an Aggregate Base

Installing a new aggregate base is the best option. As aggregate stone will somewhat replace some of the hot mix asphalt. 6 - 8 inches of aggregate should be installed under 3 inches of asphalt.

The Time For Asphalt Paving Installation

This is the hardest step for installing an asphalt driveway. Once the base is completely done, the average driveway will start to look completed in a matter of 40 minutes.

It will take time to compact the asphalt. then the asphalt will have to harden. Under normal conditions, you should be able to drive on the driveway within 2 or 3 days. It can take 30 days or more for the asphalt to totally cure. During this time, you can use the driveway but be sure to avoid scuffing the surface by tires turning too sharply which can cause damage.

When Is The Best Time To Install Asphalt?

Hot-mix asphalt paving relies on warmer temperatures to get the job done. Spring and summer are the best times for installing your asphalt driveway.

When the temperatures are colder, there will be less time for the paving crew to work with the asphalt. Crews need time to smooth the asphalt across the driveway. If they do not have enough time your driveway could be bumpy, uneven or the project cannot be completed.  Although it depends on where you live,  winter is not the best time to install an asphalt driveway.

The thickness of the paving is another important point. The more asphalt you are dealing with the more leeway you will have. If the temperature is 40° F, crews have only 18 minutes to work with a -1/2 inch thick asphalt.

The depth of the asphalt grows to 3 inches, and the amount of time to work with it could be 46 minutes. In most cases, this application of asphalt which is around 1-1/2 inches you might want to wait until the temperature is at 70° F or higher. Between 50° F and 60° F, you need to get with your contractor for advice.  Even though the hot mix is still workable during these times, it's going to be limited.
