“Very professional job done on our road...sides were built up in trouble areas, lead into driveways were very smooth, straight edges, and nice smooth cover of pea gravel. All of the comments I've received by homeowners were positive." - Ken Miller, Road Association President.
Importance of Base Preparation
With over 60 years of experience in the chip seal business, you can rest assured we understand the importance of base preparation. Our estimators physically inspect every project’s base for stabilization, grade, and drainage before creating a quote. When comparing quotes from multiple contractors, we recommend inquiring about their base preparation process as all pavements are only as good as the base they are placed on. When considering a chip seal, the preparation of the base is one of the most key elements in the process.
Here are a few tips to remember when your road is being chip sealed.
- Move objects away from the curb. Make sure that all personal belongings and property are kept back from the edge of the road (trash cans, recycling bins, lawn ornaments).
- Expect noise. Our onsite crews will be operating heavy trucks and noisy equipment. You may see an oil distributor, chip spreader, rollers, and pick-up trucks. In accordance with OSHA standards our equipment has been equipped with back-up alarms and strobe lighting for safety so expect some level of noise.
- Don’t drive through fresh oil. Be patient and wait until the crew or flaggers give you the go ahead to drive on the road. Removing oil from your vehicle will be laborious and expensive for you. It’s in your best interest to be patient and not drive on fresh oil.
