Sometimes you just need to start from scratch. This parking lot was removed and replaced with 2 coats of hot mix asphalt - a base coat of Hl8 and a top coat of Hl3. The newly established line painting helps to promote efficient traffic flow while maximizing use for the tenants and customers.

This entire loading dock depends on two central catch basins for stormwater management (see pylons in image for reference). Once we removed the broken asphalt, we spent a full day regrading the backlot to ensure proper water drainage.

A water main ruptured underground this Toronto community causing the roadway to be shutdown until the pipe was fixed. Once the project was handed over to us, we made quick work of this total road restoration (concrete curbs + asphalt replacement) so that the community could get back to normal as soon as possible.

Unlike concrete, asphalt will bend before it breaks. This makes asphalt the go-to material for outdoor sporting courts. Projects like these demand a level surface finish while maintaining just enough slope for proper water drainage.

What is the cheapest type of driveway?

The Most Affordable Driveway Options for Your Home: A Comprehensive Guide

When it comes to enhancing the curb appeal and functionality of your home, selecting the right driveway material is crucial. Not only does it need to complement your property's aesthetics, but it should also fit within your budget. Let's take a look at some insights for the most cost-effective driveway solutions.

Factors Influencing Driveway Costs

  • Project size/type.

  • Labor.

  • Location.

  • Preparatory work required.

  • Unforeseen circumstances.

  • Mobilization minimums.

Understanding these factors can help you compare apples to apples when you're gathering quotes.

Overview of Driveway Materials

From classic concrete to versatile asphalt and economical gravel, the choice of driveway material impacts both the initial installation cost and long-term maintenance needs.

Gravel - The Budget-Friendly Choice

Gravel is by far the most economical option for driveways. Its ease of installation and minimal initial cost make it an attractive choice for homeowners on a tight budget. However, it requires regular maintenance to keep it looking neat and functional.

At Pavemar, we typically only install gravel driveways for farmland areas or industrial yards.

Asphalt - The Balance of Price and Performance

Asphalt offers a middle ground in terms of both cost and durability. It's less expensive than concrete and, with proper maintenance, can last for decades. This is our area of expertise - we've been paving asphalt driveways for over 30 years - always ensuring a smooth, durable surface that withstands the harsh weather conditions here in Ontario.

Concrete - The Affordable Long-Term Investment

Concrete driveways, while having a higher upfront cost, offer unmatched longevity and low maintenance, proving to be cost-effective over time. They also provide a wide range of decorative options, from stamped patterns to coloured finishes.

2 more things to consider about concrete:

-It is guaranteed to crack over time

-Patterned concrete is always more slippery in winter conditions.

Unfortunately, this is not a service we offer, but to exclude this information from the blog would be unjust :)

Comparing Costs - Initial vs. Long-Term

When comparing driveway materials, consider both the initial installation cost and long-term maintenance expenses. Asphalt and gravel may be more affordable to install but can require more upkeep than concrete, which has higher upfront costs but can have lower long-term maintenance.

DIY vs. Professional Installation

Just (don't) Do It

While DIY installations can save money upfront, professional installation by experienced contractors like Pavemar Paving ensures a high-quality, durable driveway that adds value to your property and saves money in the long run.

Patches and Crack Filler belong on parking lots...Not your front step.

Enhancing Your Driveway on a Budget

Regardless of the material you choose, regular maintenance can extend your driveway's lifespan and appearance. Sealcoating, prompt professional repair and decorative borders are cost-effective ways to enhance and protect your investment.

Asphalt is the most commonly used material for driveways, roads and parking lots; and there is a good reason for that. It is resistant to water, heat and cold, making it very durable. The most common failure mechanism is fatigue from repeated loading over time, however, if the asphalt is applied properly, it can last a long time without giving you any trouble or headaches. When it comes to industrial or commercial paving, the proper application of asphalt determines how durable and long-lasting it will be. One of the biggest mistakes when applying asphalt is not preparing the surface properly. This includes removing the old asphalt, grading, compacting the soil and applying the crushed rock and subsoil.

Your parking lot should be sturdy enough to be resistant to heat, cold and moisture. If you notice cracks and pots holes in your parking lot, you should consider installing a new lot. We prefer asphalt as it is easier to maintain and repair. A parking lot with regular maintenance and resurfacing can look as gorgeous as it did on the first day. We can help you with parking lot paving and maintenance. To know more about our services, give us a call.


A well-maintained parking lot goes a long way, considering the parking lot is a visitor’s first impression of the place. Here are some tips to keep your parking lot good as new:

-​Routine inspections:

-Fill the cracks, clear the chemical deposit and clean the entire area.

-Sweep it often: Do not let water or moisture stay on asphalt for too long. It weakens the surface.Inspect drains: A water logging problem can become huge in moments.

-Always clear clogged drains.Clear oil and chemicals: Oil and chemicals deteriorate the material that holds asphalt together. Clear it soon as you see it.
