Q:  How long will it take for me to receive an estimate after my initial contact?
A:  It is our goal to provide estimates to all clients within one week of the initial inquiry.  Estimates can be done early in the morning or late in the evenings to better accommodate the client’s schedule.  Written proposals are normally submitted promptly after the job is estimated.

Q: How does your company schedule jobs, and how long will I have to wait?
A: We schedule upon acceptance date of each client.  Once a proposal is accepted by the client we put all jobs in order of acceptance and proceed accordingly.  Keep in mind, our ability to schedule jobs is based largely on weather.

Q:  How long must I stay off of my new asphalt after it is installed?
A:  If possible, new asphalt should be allowed to cure for 24-48 hours after installation.  Driving on new asphalt is not a problem; however we do not recommend parking on asphalt for a few days (especially in the summer months). Placing heavy objects on asphalt will also cause indentations and/or scuffing.  Power steering marks occur in asphalt if care is not taken when entering or leaving a parking area. However, if your vehicle is in motion power steering will not adversely affect asphalt.

Q:  How long is your paving season?
A:  Asphalt paving demands warm, dry weather. We typically start in April and pave until the fall/winter when the temperatures start dropping and are consistently cool.  It must be 40 degrees and rising in order to install asphalt pavement.  The local asphalt plants normally shut down from December until March.

Q:  How long will my new asphalt last?
A:  Conditions vary. The life of asphalt is largely determined by the quality of the subgrade. If a proper stone base is installed, (we recommend four to six inches of aggregate base), asphalt can last up to 25 years with proper care and maintenance.   

  Q:  How soon after paving should asphalt be sealed?
A:  We recommend seal-coating your new asphalt after one or two years.  It is a cost-effective way to protect the asphalt from harmful agents such as oil, grease, and weather.  In addition, seal-coating aids in aesthetically maintaining the new look of asphalt.

   Q:  What type of weather is best for a tar and gravel treatment?
A:  Tar and gravel must be installed in warm, dry conditions.  Preferably, no threat of rain can be present and humidity must be low in order for tar and gravel surface treatments to be installed correctly.

Q:  What are your payment terms? Are deposits required?
A:  Deposits are not required upon acceptance of your proposal.  Payment in full is to be remitted immediately after work is completed.  Invoices are provided for record retention purposes, but prompt payments are expected.  If you feel you cannot pay in full upon completion, prior arrangements should be made through the office.
