Three Things to Consider When Building a Long Driveway

August, 12, 2020 By CASSIDY PAVING 3 min read
Driveways are an important part of your home or business. Anyone can throw down some asphalt and call it a day on your driveway project. It takes a professional to see the area and design the perfect drive for your needs and driving habits. Cassidy Paving has many years of experience providing both short and long driveway options for customers across Massachusetts. Here are the top three things to consider when it is time to start your long driveway project.

What to Consider when Building a Long Driveway


Maybe you need a long driveway for better access to your property or maybe the long driveway will fit perfectly with your home’s aesthetic. There are multiple ways to achieve an extended driveway without breaking the bank. As asphalt contractors, we know that this durable paving material will give customers the biggest bang for their buck for many years to come. According to national averages from Angie’s List, asphalt pavement always costs less than its concrete counterparts at about $2-$5 per square foot of the driveway. We can add as many feet to your driveway as you’d like as long as we can cover all materials and labor costs within your budget, therefore it is important to discuss any limitations you have with your Cassidy Paving technician ahead of time. Any additional length of driveway installed will cost more money, so this is an important thing to consider before you decide on a long drive.

Designing for Purpose

When considering a long driveway for your home or business, there are a few design elements to keep in mind. Is the area already clear of vegetation? Is the ground sloped? Do you have flooding issues on the property? These are all really important things to think about before committing to a long driveway. Any preparations that need to be made to the property will need to be done well ahead of laying the asphalt. A seasoned asphalt contractor will be able to design a long driveway that fits your aesthetics as well as maintains functionality. All of these are important to consider before committing to a long driveway.

Choosing the Right Contractor

No two asphalt paving contractors are alike. Some specialize in certain paving areas, but not another. It is very important to choose a company that has a verified record of providing sustainable and professional-level driveway construction. At Cassidy Paving we have a combined 108 years of asphalt experience including driveway installation of all sizes. You will want to make sure your contractor is bonded and fully insured. They also should have experience dealing with various types of soil found throughout Massachusetts. It is also a good idea to check out a few contractors and get free estimates prior to hiring. Also, the best recommendation you can get is word of mouth from family and friends.
