Big City Asphalt
I have a long asphalt driveway, 1/10 of a mile long. It had deteriorated to the point I needed to put a 2” asphalt cap for the entire length of it. I contacted 4 companies to provide me with estimates. One company gave me bids of $28000 for 3” cap, and $24000 for a 2” cap. He then recommended “chip & seal” for less than half the amount of the 2”. Chip and seal is just spraying tar and covering it with gravel. It made me think for the scene in Cool Hand Luke. I am cheap by nature and was considering this option even though it would last far less than asphalt. Another vendor gave me a competitive quote. One more never responded. Then Adam Keel from Big City Asphalt came buy. My first impression was who is this kid? I am 60 and you can be 22 like Adam, and I consider you a kid. He measured the driveway. He went into his truck and provided me a professional quote along with references and insurance information. No one else did that. He gave me a price less than the chip & seal I was considering. I thought he made a mistake, so I asked him to measure the driveway again. He did. He said he had measured correctly. He then told me how he would make the 1st pass depositing the asphalt it the low areas to even our the surface. He would build up the low area I have to make a smooth transition where there had always been a spot I knew to take slow, but sometimes visitors didn’t. He said he could do it in one day. He looked me in the eye, he shook my hand, and I believed him.He dropped off his equipment the night before the work started. And then he did everything he said he would do. I have the best driveway in my neighborhood. His asphalt truck tires did make a few tire tracks along the driveway. To save thousands of dollars, I can deal with that.If you are considering any type of asphalt work and you don’t give Big City Asphalt a chance to earn your business, it’s a mistake.TC4/10/2017
