Our Driveway Repair Services

Asphalt driveways are designed to last a long time, with most lasting somewhere between 20 and 30 years before they start showing visible signs of wear and tear such as cracking and potholes. The replacement cost for an asphalt driveway is significant, sometimes running into the tens of thousands depending on its size and location.

If your driveway is starting to look a bit tired, worn or broken the most cost-effective way to increase its useful life is to look at patching and repair options.

At Potholes Perth we provide quick, long-lasting, and affordable repair options that can revitalise your driveway by removing tripping hazards for pedestrians, smoothing out your ride and adding value to your home.

Before diving into repairs, our professional team undertakes a comprehensive assessment of your driveway. This helps us understand the extent of the damage, ensuring we provide a repair solution tailored specifically to your needs.

We believe that it’s vital to attend to the damage as soon as it appears, something that will prevent the problem from getting bigger and, ultimately, reduce the cost of the final repair. So why wait?

Driveway Repair Options

Overlay the Damaged Area

This approach is the most cost-effective option targeting the damaged area only. It will result in a slightly raised finish compared to the existing asphalt.

Remove and Replace the Damaged Area

This approach targets the damaged area only. Removing and replacing the damaged asphalt results in the new asphalt being flush with the existing. This option costs slightly more than an overlay but has a smoother finish.

Overlay a Large Section of Driveway

This approach covers the entire area of the driveway that you would like to repair or refurbish. By covering the damage and the existing asphalt adjacent it provides a uniform flush finish over the area. It ensures that the driveway doesn’t end up with a patchy look, instead looking as if it’s a brand new driveway.

Signs Your Driveway Needs Repair

A driveway isn’t just a functional space to park vehicles or connect your home to the road; it’s also a vital component of your property’s curb appeal. Over time, wear and tear, combined with external factors, can compromise its structure and appearance. Knowing when to repair bitumen and asphalt driveways can save you from more extensive damages and costs down the road. Here are some tell-tale signs to look out for:


One of the most apparent indicators that your driveway needs attention is the emergence of any surface cracks. While small, hairline fractures might appear superficial, they can evolve into larger, more problematic cracks if not addressed promptly. They provide an entryway for water, leading to more damage, especially in freeze-thaw cycles. Whilst asphalt is a relatively flexible material when compared to other road materials, it is still prone to cracking and other damage over the course of decades.


These are depressions or hollows in the driveway surface formed due to the wear and tear from traffic and weather changes. Not only are they a nuisance for vehicles and pedestrians, but potholes also allow water to pool, further deteriorating the driveway surface’s integrity and lifespan.

Drainage Issues

Proper drainage is crucial for maintaining the condition of your driveway. If you notice standing water or puddles that don’t evaporate within a day after rain, it’s a sign that your driveway has drainage issues. This stagnant water can expedite the wear process, leading to cracks, potholes, and even foundation issues in extreme cases.

Poor Aesthetics

Over time, driveways can lose their once crisp and clean appearance. Discoloration, stains, and uneven surfaces can detract from your property’s overall aesthetic appeal. While this might seem like a mere cosmetic issue, a faded or uneven driveway might be indicative of underlying problems or poor material quality.

If you notice any of these signs on your driveway, it’s a clear signal to take action. Addressing these issues early can prevent more significant damage and ensure that your driveway or driveways remain both functional and visually appealing for years to come.

Factors Influencing Driveway Repair Costs

Repairing a driveway is essential to maintain the aesthetics and functionality of your property. However, several factors come into play when determining the cost of such repairs:

Driveway Size

Unsurprisingly, the size of your driveway plays a significant role in repair costs. Larger driveways require more materials and labour, thereby increasing the overall expense. Conversely, smaller driveways or specific sections of driveways might cost less, but the repair per square foot or meter might be slightly higher due to the smaller scope of work.

Extent of the Repair

Not all driveway damages are created equal. Some might just have superficial cracks, while others could have deep potholes or extensive wear. Naturally, minor repairs tend to be less costly compared to those that need significant renovation or reconstruction.

Accessibility of the Job Site

If your driveway is tucked away in a hard-to-reach location or has obstacles that make it less accessible, the complexity of the job increases. This process might require specialised equipment or additional labour hours, subsequently affecting the overall repair costs.

Given the variability in these factors, it’s essential to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the potential expenses involved. For an accurate and detailed assessment tailored to your specific driveway repair project and needs, it’s vital to contact Potholes Perth for a full quote. Their expertise and great service will ensure that you receive a fair and transparent estimate, eliminating any unwarranted surprises.

Frequently Asked Questions

We specialise in repairing and enhancing existing driveways. We do not offer complete replacement or re-sheeting services.

For driveway repairs, we primarily use asphalt and bitumen. Both of these materials have been favoured in the industry for their durability, resilience to weather changes, and compatibility with existing driveways. Asphalt, being a combination of small stones, sand, and bitumen, offers a sturdy and smooth finish. Bitumen, in its various formulations, provides a flexible yet robust solution for patchwork and repairs. It’s essential to match the repair material with the existing driveway material to ensure seamless integration and optimal performance. If you’re uncertain about your driveway’s composition or the best material for your specific repair needs, the experts at Potholes Perth are always on hand to provide guidance and solutions.

Thanks to our expert staff, advanced techniques, and the highest quality materials, our repairs are durable and long-lasting. Specific longevity can vary based on factors like traffic frequency and weather conditions.
