We had the opportunity to complete an asphalt repair project for a parking lot for a business based near Islip, NY.
The client, who is a long-time client of ours, recognized several signs of deterioration of their parking lot. They called us, asking us to come out to take a look.
We scheduled an inspection and evaluation the following Monday. We considered both the problems with their parking lot and their budget and made the best decision based on both factors. We determined that the best course of action would be to saw cut, remove and replace the weakest section of the parking lot, which had multiple cracks and pot holes that connected the cracks. This area was clearly experiencing the most wear and tear, but we also were concerned that the-sub base needed some extra stabilization.
We came out the next Tuesday, which was a slower day of business for them. Sure enough, we needed to excavate a couple feet below the sub-grade and to add a stable layer of aggregate so the repair would last a long time. We wrapped the job up within two days, allowing for the newly repaired parking area to settle before allowing traffic back to the area.
The property management company was impressed with our solution because all they wanted to do was to slow the deterioration of the parking lot – but we are confident this repair will last a number of years for our client.
Thank you for choosing DuMor Construction Inc for your parking lot repair needs.
We got a call from a local church that needed a small area paved, but they also wanted the new asphalt paving to match their existing lot, which was in a state of disrepair. It was very important that these parking lot repairs were done as soon as possible because they didn’t want any of their congregation to fall and get hurt or their vehicles to get damaged. We asked them when would be the best time for us to come by and inspect the parking lot and to provide an estimate, and they wanted us to come out as soon as we could, so our team was at the church within the hour.
Our Islip asphalt contractor team started inspecting and evaluating the parking lot and the parking lot was in very bad shape. We gave the church members the estimate and they said that it was within their budget, so we were scheduled to start on the parking lot first thing Monday morning.
Parking Lot Paving Work Starts
The crew arrived at the church Monday morning and thankfully the weather was perfect. The sun was shining and it wasn’t too hot, and there was no rain in the forecast for the entire week, which is what we needed to get this job done for the church. The crew started cleaning the parking lot thoroughly to remove all the dirt, chemicals, and debris from the parking lot, then the crew started patching the potholes that were in the parking lot. Once all the patching was done, the crew did a lot of crack sealing, then the sealcoating was applied. The crew returned the following day to start the installation of the parking lot addition, and the crew worked on that for two days until it was completed. The crew returned on the following day to restripe both lots.
We did an extensive repair and maintenance work (including crack sealing, parking lot patching, and sealcoating and restriping) to get everything up to snuff while we also installed a larger area of the parking lot for all members of the congregation to enjoy. Our crew was able to get the parking lot completed one day ahead of schedule, so when all the congregation arrived Sunday morning for church services they would be greeted with a new and safe parking lot.
A couple of church members that hired us called the office to thank us for doing a superior job. They also wanted to thank the crew members for being respectful, knowledgeable, and hard workers. We were really happy to do a good job, especially for such grateful clients. We assured them that if they needed absolutely anything in the future they should feel free to give us a call.
