Our returning customer was a property owner that needed some minor repairs of 1 area (2,900 SF) totaling 27 tons of asphalt installation. After assessing the job-site with the customer, our estimator decided that overlaying the area was the best choice due to the size of the area and the extent of the damage.
The equipment used for this project were, a skid steer, roller, industrial blower, brooms, shovels, dump truck, and seal tank. All these tools were expertly handled by our experienced asphalt crew in a safe and clean work environment to provide the highest quality of service.
The process of overlaying is becoming a very popular choice in repairing asphalt these days. The reason for this is that it gives another option other than complete asphalt removal. R&R's (remove and replace projects) are more expensive mostly due to the need to haul off and dump the old asphalt, resulting in large dumping fees, not to mention if all of the asphalt had to be removed there would be a need for a larger amount of new product, and while not every project is a candidate for the overlay approach, this one was a perfect fit. At Empire we take pride in making educated recommendations that will suit the specific needs of each customer individually.
The work was done correctly, safely, looked great, and all areas were cleaned up and ready for work the next morning. The specifics will always depend on the size and assessment of your current situation, but knowing that you will get an honest, upfront estimate from a professional and reputable company equals peace of mind which is priceless.
