5 Key Things Every Good Paving Estimate Should Include

May, 27, 2020 By CASSIDY PAVING 3 min read

The team at Cassidy Paving always wants to work closely with asphalt customers so that they receive the best of the best service. Knowing what you can expect during the estimate process is one way to empower yourself to make the best decision for your particular needs. We are here to be your guide throughout the entire asphalt paving process, from the preconstruction estimate to installation and beyond. Here are some things you should look for no matter what asphalt contractor you get an estimate from.

In-Person Inspection and Needs Review

Regardless of the amount of technology out there, nothing takes the place of a good, old fashioned in-person inspection of the area you would like paved. This is not just a time for us to look the space over, it is also an important time where we can discuss what your specific needs are. Whether it's a driveway for your home or a parking lot for your business, in-person discussion and inspection is a critical step in the estimate process.

Run Down of Materials

Even though we are asphalt pavers, there are many ways that we can apply the asphalt to the area. There is no one size fits all approach to asphalt paving materials. We will ask you some questions regarding how you intend on using the area and what your budget is during this step. Pavement Interactive details the various types of asphalt pavement mixtures that are commonly used and they include:

  • Hot mix asphalt
  • Dense-graded mix
  • Stone matrix asphalt
  • Open-graded mixes

Water Drainage Plan

Even the best-laid asphalt stands no chance against the elements if there’s no proper drainage plan in place. Proper drainage is the only way to ensure lasting asphalt pavement. Pooling and standing water on asphalt causes cracks and deterioration of the subbase, essentially washing away everything but the top layer until potholes form. Your contractor should be familiar with proper drainage techniques and how your particular situation could be constructed to divert water.

Outstanding Customer Service

One thing is true about Cassidy Paving, no matter what, you will receive the highest quality customer service. We have a history of providing the best to our customers. Just read our Yelp reviews from across New England! If you aren’t getting treated the way you expect to be by other contractors, just remember that you don’t have to settle. We would be glad to show you the most professional and respectful way to get your asphalt paving estimate.

Next Steps

The Cassidy Paving representative that completes your estimate will always make it clear about the next steps. We want you to feel like you have a handle on how to move forward in the process. We offer free estimates without pressure. If you’d like to talk to other contractors before choosing us, that’s ok too.
