As a commercial property owner or manager, hiring a commercial paving contractor to pave your parking lot isn’t something that you do very often. When the need arises due to either new construction or existing damaged blacktop, make sure to hire a reputable and well reviewed asphalt company in Minnesota.
The reason should be clear, but if it’s not, take this warning to heart. Substandard workmanship will cost you far more than hiring a reputable asphalt company in Minnesota from the very beginning. Commercial grade asphalt should be able to last for a couple of decades, but, if installed improperly, could start developing major problems within a couple of years. Those asphalt repairs are costly and shouldn’t have to be performed so soon after you refresh, resurface or replace your blacktop.
In most cases, these problems are due to the base being too thin in poor drainage areas which then has an effect on the asphalt surface. In other cases it could be from the blacktop itself being too thin and wearing through too easily or cracking from high traffic.
Hiring a reputable asphalt company in Minnesota that has established itself through high quality workmanship can easily prevent these kinds of issues from happening to you. Finding such a company should be fairly easy for you to do with the advantage of the internet at your side to check customer reviews. Still, you should make several phone calls and do some price comparisons and ask for examples of the company’s past work. If you find an asphalt company in Minnesota with a pricing that is well below other quotes that you have received, be wary, it may indicate that their work won’t stand the test of time and you’ll be stuck with a bill that you weren’t expecting for years if not decades to come.
