Detailed Estimates - How a Contractor's Attention to Detail from the Start will Ensure No Surprises!

June, 15, 2020 By CASSIDY PAVING 3 min read

With a detailed estimate from Cassidy Paving, you can take the guesswork out of your next asphalt pavement project. Every contractor has a different way of providing potential customers with estimates, but our team’s attention to detail from the very beginning will ensure there will be no budget surprises. Here’s what you can expect from a Cassidy Paving detail estimate.

What’s a Detailed Estimate?

No two estimates are created equal. A detailed estimate is not the same thing as a preliminary estimate you may get as a rough quote over the phone. A detailed estimate occurs when your asphalt contractor has a solid understanding of the scope of your unique project. Our team members will do an in-person inspection in order to provide the details you need on your estimate, so you understand the costs upfront.

What’s Included in a Detailed Estimate?

Your estimate will include the exact details regarding material quantities, costs, and visuals (plans, images, and/or drawings) to give you a full picture of the project scope of work. This information will include exactly how costs are configured and passed on to the customer. These details mean you are fully aware of how and where your money will be spent. At Cassidy Corp, we understand the importance of making and keeping to a budget on a construction project. A Cassidy Corp estimate proposal provides you with everything you need to know about the budget needed to complete your driveway, parking lot, or roadway paving project.

Things That Affect Your Estimate

Project Size: An asphalt paving estimate is a bit different than what you find with other general contractors. One factor that will help determine every cost is the size of your project. According to ImproveNet,“the larger the area that needs to be paved, the more asphalt the project will require, and the more overall costs will be. The number of layers you add will also play a role; each coat can add around $1 per square foot”.

Labor: Asphalt paving requires preparation and paving by professional crews. Cassidy Corp has many skilled professionals, with years of experience, to help supply professional labor for all phases of your paving project.

Prep: If the preparation of the site will require debris removal or any other grading or leveling, it will cost more than repaving. Cassidy Paving will be happy to offer you full details on our pavement prepping process as part of your initial estimate phase.

Permitting: As pre-certified asphalt contractors serving customers across Massachusetts, we often already have or can obtain any permitting needed in a timely manner. If there’s any specialized licensure, the costs may be passed on to the customer, but we will work to find the best solution for all parties.

Average Costs

There isn’t one true way to get an accurate estimate without the detailed inspection process. Home Advisor says though that the average cost to pave a driveway is around $4,604, with the typical range between $2,862 and $6,358. The same data finds that a parking lot could cost up to $39,000. Cassidy Paving always works to give our customers fair and accurate pricing on any detailed estimate.
