It’s hard enough that you’ve got to invest in a Lakeland parking lot paving but now, you also have to look for an asphalt pavement contractor. That isn’t an easy feat, though it sounds like choosing the restaurant where to get your dinner from later. Okay, that’s not a great comparison since choosing a diner or a Chinese take-out stall isn’t easy, too. But, you get the drift, right?
There are too many factors that need to be taken into consideration and beyond those factors are reasons that should be measured against each other. How does one pick a pavement company when all of them promise the same quality product and service? There’s got to be an easier way to choose a pavement contractor, right? Of course, there is.
The state or condition of your pavement before the quotation was made will alter the prices and the needed construction.
For example, Contractor A saw your parking lot when delivery trucks are parked on it and when you haven’t cleaned the surface yet. They saw the cracks, the pressure that the trucks put on the pavement, as well as the unkempt condition of the parking lot.
Automatically, Contractor A will quote you a price higher than the average pavement service fees. Why? Because it looked like your parking lot needed more work than what was originally thought.
On the other hand, Contractor B went to your property an hour before closing time. They saw the lot after it has been cleaned and the grass trimmed. There are only a few cars left. The delivery trucks have all finished doing their tasks.
The parking lot looked extremely different from the one that Contractor A saw but they are just the same in terms of structure and surface condition. And yet, Contractor B is bound to give you a lower estimate because they saw the parking lot differently than Contractor A did.
To give every contractor a chance to offer a fair quotation to you, let them come to your property when conditions are the worst it could possibly be. Let them know that delivery trucks are often stalling on your parking lot because they haven’t finished loading the items yet. Let them see the heavy foot and vehicular traffic that the lot is subjected to, day in and day out.
These conditions will give them an idea of what needs to be done on the Lakeland parking lot paving. They can then give you a pretty accurate estimation of the pavement materials, services, and maintenance fees that you need to prepare for.
