Every part of your home deserves an upgrade once in a while — yes, even your driveway. That’s why we’re going to be taking a closer look at some of the best asphalt paving services in Ottawa today.
We did some research on FAQs about asphalt paving and compiled them at the end of this listicle for reference.
But first, let’s discuss the costs associated with this particular service in the next section.
How Much Is Asphalt Paving in Ottawa?
Asphalt is typically sold by square footage as indicated in the table below (costs are based on regional averages). Most commercial asphalt paving in Ottawa requires delivery per ton, cubic yard, or truckload.
If it’s a simple residential asphalt paving, you can expect to pay for labour by the hour, though it really depends on the asphalt paving company.
|ASPHALT PAVING SERVICE||ESTIMATED COST|
|Asphalt||$3 – $10 per square foot|
$40 – $80 per ton
$80 – $160 per cubic yard
$500 – $1,800 per bulk truckload
|Asphalt delivery||$40 – $80 per hour $4 – $9 per ton|
|Labour||$40 – $55 per hour|
|Asphalt driveway||$1,500 – $4,500|
|Interlock patio/walkway||$23 – $30 per square foot|
Paving companies will usually charge by the type of asphalt, consistency, and thickness required of a project. This is why it’s great that most of them offer free estimates at no obligation to the customer.
The Best Asphalt Paving Companies in Ottawa
To ensure that you’ll get quality services, we put together this listicle using the following criteria:
1. Pro Pavingstone Inc.
|SERVICES||Asphalt paving and repairs, concrete garage floor maintenance and restoration, interlocking driveways and walkways, outdoor kitchen and fireplace installation, patios and pool decks, retaining walls and steps, snowplowing (commercial only), snow removal (commercial only), commercial paving|

Pro Pavingstone Inc. is practically a one-stop-shop for all things paving and landscaping related. It caters to both commercial and residential clients with services ranging from asphalt paving and repairs to outdoor kitchen installation.
A look at its portfolio of works for past clients shows clean and professionally done driveways, walkways, pathways, retaining walls, decks, and steps. We appreciate the captions included in the pictures mentioning the materials and process used for each project.
But what’s really great about Pro Pavingstone is how it doesn’t require any kind of payment from customers until after the job is done! That’s quite a vote of confidence for the quality of its work right there.
It’s a bit of a letdown that its snow plowing and removal services are geared for commercial clients only, though.
It doesn’t list its prices but offers a free estimate and custom services. Apart from accepting credit cards as its only payment method, we find little else to complain about this BBB-accredited company.

We like how the company carefully explains each of its services on the website including the processes involved. It would be great to indicate some base pricing information for them, but the offer of free quotes should suffice.

“After getting quotes from different companies I decided to go with JND paving for my asphalt driveway. The work was just finished and I must say the experience from the first phone call to having the work completed was great. My driveway looks amazing! They worked weekends and late evenings to make sure the job was completed. Nice, polite, professional and knowledgeable! I will definitely use this company again for future projects! Thank you JND!” – Jennifer Warren
Addressed the issue quickly
“The work came out great, but there was a spot that I was unsure about I called the company and was told they would be back the following week to take a look at it, the crew showed up two days later and took care of the problem. I was surprised at how quickly they addressed the issue! Everything looks great! I would recommend this company to anyone getting work done!” – Kevin Lawrence

It enjoys generally favourable client feedback that mentions thorough workmanship and speedy service. Customers also comment on CanArk’s “excellent pricing” so it’s good to take advantage of its offer of free quotes and financing options.
CanArk emphasizes the importance of having a strong foundation in preparation for asphalt paving of commercial and residential driveways. Its preparation process includes using the highest grade of asphalt along with excavating and building an above-average sub-base.
We appreciate how it explains its asphalt paving process carefully on the website. It even throws in some care tips for newly paved asphalt driveways!
To underline the quality of its work, there’s a portfolio of past work that its team has done for clients. The downside is that there are no captions that could give more info on the projects.

Excellent pricing and customer service
