Any money you spend to improve your business is an investment. That’s especially true when you’re going to the time, trouble, and expense of having your parking lot paved. If you’re hiring a commercial paving contractor to repave or resurface your parking lot, you’ll rightly want it to last for many years to come. However, not all commercial paving companies are created equal. The quality of your paving job is directly connected to the quality of the materials and labor they use. The professionals at SMI Paving have identified four key parts of a long-lasting commercial paving job.
- Your paving contractor should understand the area that’s being repaved or resurfaced. It seems pretty obvious that a contractor should take a good look at the property before starting the job. However, some don’t—and it shows in the results.
- They should do the best quality work for your budget. A legitimate paving company won’t skimp just because you’re not their most expensive job.
- They should evaluate what’s already there. Make sure they inspect the existing asphalt and the soil so they can apply the new asphalt correctly.
- They should stand behind their work. If you have a problem with your parking lot shortly after the job is done, they should make it right. Always consider taking advantage of routine maintenance to make your parking lot last longer.
