There are many factors that determine the price of a paving project. It is important to choose a asphalt contractor that has the understanding and experience to evaluate your project and deliver an accurate estimate. A few things that can influence the price of your asphalt are:
Another important aspect in determining the cost of your asphalt paving is the type of work you are having done. Installing new asphalt from the ground up will usually be more expensive than asphalt repairs or an overlay on top of existing asphalt.
Several contractors will have very different prices and scopes of work on the same project. Be sure you are selecting your contractor based on quality and not on price. Sometimes lower prices mean less material. If you are looking for a San Antonio paving contactor to deliver a accurate,honest,and fair priced estimate contact us today at Luke's Asphalt Paving
Many of our customers ask us if it is possible to install hotmix asphalt in the winter. The answer is yes, especially in Central Texas! There is a common misconception that asphalt can only be paved in warm weather. Although cold weather paving comes with more challenges, it is possible.
Challenges to cold weather paving:
1.Product Availability- Finding an asphalt manufacture that will run year round is important. Luckily in San Antonio we have many asphalt plants that run year round.
2. Transportation- Getting asphalt from the manufacturer to the job site without it cooling is very important. Here at Luke's Asphalt Paving, we use insulated truck beds to insure our material stays the correct temperature.
3. Instillation- Speed is very important when paving in cold weather. Having the right amount of skilled manpower on site is important when paving in colder temperatures. All handwork needs to be done quickly.
4.Compaction-The surface needs to be prepped and compacted within a 5 to 10 minute window when paving a 2" lift of hotmix asphalt. Having a skilled roller operator close behind your asphalt lay-down machine will insure a smooth surface that will last years to come.
