We’ve seen it happen time and time again. Either the driveway damages a client’s car, the neighbors start complaining or the driveway becomes impossible to shovel or snow plough in the winter. Poor driveway maintenance can result in several unpleasant issues.
It’s important to maintain your driveway, and part of that is knowing when it’s time to re-pave. Here’s what’s involved in getting your driveway re-paved with AMPAC.
What’s involved in a driveway re-paving?
- AMPAC’s timeline
When it comes to residential repaving, regardless of what kind of job it is, AMPAC begins by providing a timeframe to the client as to how long the project will typically take to complete. Whether it’s for a backyard, a patio, a walkway, a driveway or a garage floor for instance. At the point of signing the contract we provide a pretty fair indicator as to when we can begin. Generally, when things are running along smoothly, it takes 2 to 3 weeks after signing. If we’re going to remove and replace an existing driveway, we excavate the asphalt and grate the base, and then we return to do the asphalt 4 to 6 weeks later.
- Our payment terms
In terms of payment for jobs, we use a progress payment strategy. As a stage of the work gets completed, the client provides payment. You’re basically paying for what you get. We are flexible enough that we can work with your schedule, depending on your needs.
- Communication is key
Because 4 to 6 weeks is a long period of time, sometimes clients can lose track of the status of the project. We make sure that you’re aware of progress every step of the way. Every once in a while, unexpected problems such as weather delays can effect the end date of a project. If this ever happens, AMPAC will keep you apprised so that you’ll never be in the dark about when your driveway will be finished.
