There are many weekend pavers and out-of-town contractors who will not stand behind their work, but B&W Paving is local and is committed to customer satisfaction.
Sealcoating is an essential part of pavement maintenance, especially in Florida where sun and water degrade and oxidize asphalt pavement. Studies have shown time and again that regularly sealed asphalt pavement lasts longer, shows less cracking, and is cheaper to repair when problems do occur.
While Sealcoating may look simple, there are many factors that must happen in order to achieve a successful result. Firstly, the proper product must be used. A polymer-reinforced sealcoat is the best choice for Sealcoating asphalt because it has the strongest bond with the pavememt and lasts longer than any other type of sealcoat.
Secondly, the blend of products used in Sealcoating is critical. B&W follows the strict manufacturer guidelines regarding mixing of sealcoat materials. For example, B&W adds no more water to the sealer mix than what the manufacturer specifically states. Unfortunately, many fly-by-night Sealcoating contractors choose to use much more water than is recommended in order to save money. B&W discourages this practice and urges customers to only use established and reputable local firms for any and all Sealcoating.
Thirdly, the method of application is important. B&W Paving uses quality equipment that puts out an even and consistent spray pattern. B&W Paving hand-edges all transition areas and areas around buildings, while spraying a minimum of 2 coats on large parking areas.
With so many contractors to choose from it can be challenging trying to select the right one. Furthermore, the potential downside of choosing the wrong contractor can be enormous: lost money, lost time, damage to property, lawsuits due to injuries without insurance coverage, and more. B&W Paving suggests the following tips and ideas to help you narrow the field and choose the right contractor.
