Forum Title: Concrete to asphalt approach
I have a request to remove concrete and add an asphalt approach at a garage. Any tips and tricks or pitfalls I should be aware of before bidding. There’s a 3 inch difference in existing driveway grade and garage floor grade . I’ve bud and done quite a bit of patching but this is a bit of a different beast

I would just bid it as a typical patch. You might want to figure the extra time and material you would need to either saw cut the concrete or break it with a breaker and the extra material you would need to bring it up since your garage floor is already 3” below existing grade. Either figure running the asphalt in a little deep or bringing in some stone. Honestly I would just run the asphalt in a little deep depending on how big the approach is versus making a trip to get stone and haul it.

I’m gonna go out once the snow clears and get a good pic. Customer had a concrete guy look at it but they wanted to do a lot of extra drainage work the city wouldn’t permit and that scared him away from concrete

Sounds like putting back in concrete may be better. Concrete is much easier with short grade changes. I’d need to see a pic.
