Several factors can affect the asphalt installation in your pavement. One of this is the local material cost that is usually determined by the freight and current market price in your area. Anchorage asphalt, when used as pavement, will need to have good drainage which can also add to the cost of the installation. The base coat will also have an impact on the expense. Coats are usually around $1 to $2.50 per square foot. Special top coats and sealants used in asphalt in Anchorage can cost you an additional $1 to $2.5 per square foot for basic top coats and around $3 to $5 for special top coats. Installation of foundation can also add to the overall price of your asphalt project. Installing 8 to 10 inches of gravel below the asphalt can cost around $1 to $2.50 per square foot of the surface area.

Anchorage Borough County Asphalt FAQ

Technically, asphalt is black. When the aggregates or stones are mixed with asphalt cement, the material immediately turns black. As time goes by and as the asphalt starts to oxidize, the aggregate coating will eventually start to break down and the real color of the stone slowly show. This reaction could lead to a grayish color on the asphalt if the manufacturer used light colored aggregate.

Just like with other parts of your home or property, it will always be cheaper to repair damaged areas of your driveway when they are still minimal. Ignoring them will expose your driveway to bigger damages in the future which can cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars to repair.

Generally, you can drive on asphalt after 2 to 3 days from the date it was installed. But, you should be careful because the curing period of asphalt is 20 to 30 days.
