Choosing Your New Asphalt Provider
Are you looking to have a new asphalt parking lot paved? As you know, it’s an important investment that requires proper upkeep. Regular maintenance is critical to extending the life of your asphalt, so seal coating is recommended three to twelve months after the installation, and every three to four years thereafter.
What should you look for when choosing an asphalt provider? This list of suggestions is a good place to start:
- Excellent customer care reputation
- Professionalism on the job site
- Performs site visit to assess needs
- Identifies sensitive areas that need protection
- Schedules installation around inclement weather
- Educates customers about post-installation care
- Properly licensed and insured
As the first item on the list states, it is paramount to check the company’s reputation. You can do this by checking their status with the Better Business Bureau, or by checking Google reviews. If you are comfortable with asking, simply putting a ‘seeking recommendations’ post on your social media outlets might yield some referrals.
How else can you ensure you are getting the best value for your investment? Ask the paving company for a written quote. Also, to be sure you’re comparing equitable quotes, ask what they do when prepping the surface, how compacted/thick the asphalt will be, and how they handle drainage considerations.
Additionally, ask what kind of experience they have, especially locally. If you are a commercial customer, perhaps your needs are best served by a company with mostly large commercial parking lot experience.
