What to Think About
Your parking lot receives traffic every day, which can cause the surface to wear out. To make sure the asphalt is safe for your customers and employees, you need to have the surface repaved every so often. At NVM Paving and Concrete, we know that hiring a paving specialist can be an overwhelming process. But, with these three things to consider, hiring a paving company will be easy as pie.
Ask About the Cost
Your business does not have an infinite budget to cover maintenance costs, so you want to ensure that a paving company can provide quality work. When you interview professionals, ask for an estimate with a full breakdown of the price. Typically, paving companies use the size and condition of your parking lot to determine how much the job will cost. If your lot is not in good condition or the company needs specialized equipment to do the job, the cost may increase. Knowing exactly what you are paying for and the kinds of fees you should expect will allow you to track your budget.
Ask About Credentials
At NVM Paving and Concrete, we understand that not every company will have the expertise that you are looking for. Do your due diligence and look at the professional licenses each company has so that you know what they are qualified to do. Additionally, it is important for paving companies to both understand and meet specific guidelines for handicap parking and pedestrian safety. This will create a smooth flow during heavy traffic and prevent any collisions.
Ask About the Timeline
As you interview paving companies, ask how long it will take to complete the job. You may have to close your business to account for the construction. Inclement weather and the time of year can also make a job take longer and you need to know how the timeline may affect your business.
