How thick is the finished product of the asphalt driveway?

Homeowners often ask how thick the finished product of the paved driveway should be. The answer may surprise you because asphalt is very different than concrete. Asphalt thickness doesn’t add strength, whereas concrete thickness does. The asphalt should be thicker in the sub-base, which is what bears all weight.

The finished product of the paved driveway should range from 2 ½ inches to 3 inches thick. Some driveways can have a thickness of 4 inches, depending on the weight that the driveway will be needing to hold. If many vehicles will be on the driveway, the thickness should be closer to 4 inches. Having a professional contractor for your driveway will ensure the correct thickness is applied.
