Asphalt Repairs

The long, cold winter is heating up the asphalt business. Resealing crews are busy making repairs and getting driveways looking good again. This morning the Asphalt Rx team walked News 13’s Victoria Dunkle though the steps of resealing a driveway. Owner, Jason Calloway says it starts with clearing the driveway of debris and repairing any damage. Then they will spray on the coating and you will have a new layer of protection in place.

But the need for the resealing and repair also brings asphalt scams. They are some of the most prevalent home improvement scams. In almost every case the scammers come to your door saying they have some left over product from a nearby job. Calloway says to make sure they are local, get references, and ask where they get their supplies. More tips include get estimates, a written contract including the total cost, and never make the final payment until the job is finished. And remember y can always say no.

If you have more questions about maintaining your driveway call 828-665-8903.
