The paver driveway we're currently building will have a new 425+/- SF asphalt apron put in. I'm prepping the whole thing and they're just laying down the asphalt....$3,100. Customer is having a party this coming weekend right after we finish the driveway. Issue is the asphalt guy may get held up on his current job paving a bank parking lot and not be able to do it until Monday. At this point its late and very short notice to get someone out on Thursday. Asphalt is $46 per ton. If I'm doing all the prep......pipe under the driveway and compacted 21A/CR16............why can't I just do the asphalt too? Pick it up, rent a roller and have at it. Its small, seems very much within our capabilities. No, I wouldn't do a driveway but this seems very very straight forward. Labor and everything, off the top of my head, I can't see going past $1,000 in cost. So, is there some big deal with working with asphalt that I don't see for this particular application? No, I haven't done it before and yeah there's the whole risk deal but if I just installed, compacted and got perfect 220 tons of 21A over an area that is 90x25 without using a transit until finished and to only put it back in the truck.........I don't see why we can't do this little apron and keep everything on schedule to be completed by the weekend.
