Asphalt Paving Costs Estimator

Use this tool to estimate asphalt compaction, tons of asphalt material needed, and the total cost of a paving project. Asphalt is compacted 1/4" for every 1", so if you need 2" of asphalt put down, then you will want to enter 2 1/2". Below, you should enter your desired depth and the estimated square feet of the area to be paved.

The cost of the asphalt per ton varies based on multiple factors, including:

  • The asphalt plant's current price (roughly $50-$100/ton)

  • The cost of hauling the asphalt to the jobsite

  • Whether you're going to have the asphalt professionally installed (roughly $100-$300/ton)

    • Which further depends on the profitability of the job, e.g. lower cost per ton the larger the job.​

    • And many more factors...


This tool is only intended to provide a rough estimate of material costs for an asphalt paving project, and does not relate in any way to how Armor Asphalt would quote the job.
