Preparing For Your Paving Project

 

You've made the decision to invest in a brand new driveway or parking lot. Let us help you with what to do to prepare for us coming in to begin your project.

 

What you should know and do to prepare for the start of your project:
1. Remove anything fragile (yard ornaments, etc.) that are in close proximity to your driveway/parking lot or the areas in which we will be working in and around.
2. Remove all vehicles from the driveway/parking lot. 
3. Be sure we have the proper name(s) and phone number(s) of the individual we are to be working and scheduling the project with.
4. Visibly mark your private lines that may be in the areas we'll be working in and around. ie: invisible fencing, etc. 
5. When your prepped project is fully prepped and waiting for asphalt; we recommend applying an herbicide immediately after to help prevent vegetation growth.
6. If the asphalt comes right to the garage door, the paving crew will need to be able to acess the first 10 feet inside the garage so the roller can create a smooth transition between the garage floor and the asphalt. You may either leave the door open or indicate how the crew can gain entry, they will close and lock the door when they are finished.
7. It may also be necessary for the crew to have a source of water to fill the rollers (they have their own hoses), so please make sure your outside water is turned on.
8. We ask that you kindly keep in mind that inclement weather can play a factor in our scheduling of your project, all projects. Should the need to reschedule occur because of weather, please understand we sympathize with you about this and will do our best to accommodate both your schedule and ours.

9. Asphalt grade is limited to the control points set by existing asphalt, landscaping, and concrete curbing. Drainage MUST be at least 2% or greater to warranty against puddles. Grades with less than 2% drainage are not warrantied against puddles.

10. PLEASE NOTE: Physical properties of concrete are inelastic, and due to changes in weather, temperature changes and ground pressure, concrete will crack, chip or top popping. We cannot insure, even under the best conditions that concrete will remain crack free due to driving our equipment or trucks on existing concrete, or asphalt. We cannot guarantee it will not be cracked/broke or make existing cracks larger. We will use our best discretion.  We are not responsible for cracks or breakage

 

What we will do to prepare for the start of your project:
1. We will contact Digger's Hotline to request they come to your project location to mark out the area we'll be working in and around. Local utility companies are notified to mark their lines and pipes.  Property owner is responsible for visibly marking privately placed lines, like invisible fencing, etc.
2. We will contact you to schedule the "prep" portion of your project. If weather permits, we may be able to schedule the paving time with you at the same time. However, there is a caveat to this... If your project required a dig out of any kind, but especially significant dig out, it will be imperative that your completed prepped project wait to be paved for a few days to allow for ground settling.  After a few days have passed, and your project looks to have settled nicely, you'll then be contacted to schedule the time for the paving to be completed.
3. We ask that you kindly keep in mind that inclement weather can play a factor in our scheduling of your project, all projects. Should the need to reschedule occur because of weather, please understand we sympathize with you about this and will do our best to accommodate both your schedule and ours.
