Driveway paving estimates


I live in NH and was thinking about having my driveway paved. There are plenty of paving contractors in the area that will do free estimates but I'm kind of out of the way and would feel alittle bad for a guy to drive half an hour for a ten minute estimate just for me to decide it's not worth it. The driveway is 114 feet long and I'm thinking should be about 16 feet wide. It seems to me that there would be a minimum of excavation required as there are no large rocks and it is level. I realize that paving is one of those "get what you pay for" projects and estimates can vary greatly with the quality of the job. I was just wondering if anybody had any experience or had a similar job done so I could get a ballpark figure to what I could expect to pay. I appreciate any feedback!

Driveway paving estimates


Minor excavation / grading, compact subgrade: 203 square yards a $10 per SY
Furnish, place and compact 31 tons of 4" thick crushed stone @ $50 per T
Furnish, place and compact 45 tons of 4" thick asphalt @ $100 per T
15% contingency cost $1,200

Budget $9,300? An educated [not so?] guess. Let us know what you do and for how much.
