"How To Virtually Guarantee Professional Asphalt Driveway Repair And Asphalt Driveway Sealing That Will Last!"
Why you should be careful when searching and selecting an asphalt driveway repair contractor?
Did you know asphalt driveway repair and sealing is one of the most subtly fraudulent industries in the country? Asphalt Repair and Asphalt Sealing scams can be found just about everywhere in the country! And yes... unfortunately even in and around the Grand Rapids area! There's little or virtually zero regulation of the asphalt driveway repair and sealing industry. More people get taken advantage of by unethical and inexperienced driveway contractors than just about any other industry out there!
And the worst part is... most people don't even realize it until it's too late!
Think about it... asphalt driveway sealing is not ridiculously expensive and for the most part, neither is driveway repair services like minor patching and crack repair. To get into the asphalt repair business, there's not a tremendous amount of specialized knowledge required and there's not a large up front investment required, especially if the work is being done by hand or the contractor is renting their equipment.
Just about anyone with a 55 gallon drum, a truck and some hand tools can start an asphalt driveway repair and sealing business.
Now, that's not meant to demean the good and honest driveway repair contractors out there... not at all. There are some honest, hard working folks in the business. Some that may just be getting started and need to build thier business starting off with drums or even totes to store their sealer. But it's just to point out that a person must do their due diligence when hiring an asphalt driveway repair or sealing company. Some contractors, who have no business even being in the business, will cut their prices so low just to outbid the good, honest contractors. Then when they getvthe job they fall way short on quality.
How do they do it?
These low prices are tempting and understandably so. We all want to save money don't we? We all love a great deal! But when it comes to asphalt driveway repair and sealing, the long term effects can be much more damaging than beneficial!
Unfortunately if the driveway repair or the driveway sealing is done improperly, in the end we can end up spending hundreds, if not thousands of dollars just fixing their mistakes.
Common Ways Driveway Repair Contractors Will Short Us:
Patching over areas where the asphalt should be removed and replaced. Instead, they repair the asphalt with a thin layer of new asphalt that will not withstand normal wear and tear and fail within a couple of months or weeks! This is also known as a "skin patch". It's simply just a band-aid patch job that will last just long enough for the contractor to get paid and get out of there!
Perform asphalt driveway crack repair with products that do absolutely nothing to prevent water from penetrating them which ends up causing further damage to the asphalt in the future.
Common Ways Driveway Sealing Companies Will Short Us:
Water Based Asphalt Sealing
Watering down and diluting asphalt emulsion and coal tar sealers way beyond manufacturer specifications to get more coverage and increase profits. This does absolutely nothing to protect your asphalt driveway.
Oil Based Asphalt Sealing
Diluting oil based asphalt sealers with solvents, gasoline and thinners giving the illusion that the asphalt has been sealed when in reality... it's only been painted black! This also does absolutely nothing to protect your asphalt driveway! As a matter of fact, this is one of the most common asphalt sealing scams out there!
And one of the worst disservices:
Some contractors will recommend sealing the driveway when it doesn't even need it!
Take A Look At The Asphalt Driveway Below:
This asphalt driveway was sealed much too frequently and wound up needing to be removed and replaced in order to be repaired properly.
The homeowner used the same driveway repair contractor year after year and rather than honestly and professionally consulting the homeowner, helping them to protect their investment, this contractor just continued getting paid to seal the driveway year after year when they knew it didn't need it. The homeowner just called him every year and said "Seal my driveway" and the contractor didn't argue. He just showed up and did the work.
Imagine paying hundreds of dollars to have your asphalt driveway sealed every year, or even every couple of years, thinking you’re protecting it and extending the life of it, only to find out that instead, it was really doing the exact opposite and speeding up the deterioration process? What a disservice that is isn't it?
We receive hundreds of questions and complaints from homeowners from all over the country about unethical asphalt driveway repair and sealing companies who do these very same things! We see the results of unethical driveway repair advice and over sealing just like this, day after day!
Unfortunately, the same problems can arise with inexperienced contractors as well. While they may have good intentions, they can cause more headaches and wasted money trying to fix their mistakes. Ultimately, it just ends up costing us much more money in the long run. We’ve even seen instances where a driveway had to be removed and replaced at only 10 years old simply because it was oversealed.
While sealing the asphalt may make the driveway look good and even help with melting snow in the winter, it’s true intentions are to extend the life of your asphalt driveway and spread the replacement costs out over 20 to 30 years.
Putting too much trust in an inexperienced contractor is just not worth it! Worse is, making the mistake of hiring an asphalt driveway repair contractor or sealing company that ends up just ripping us off!
It's Just Not Worth The Risk Is It?
So how does a person choose a driveway repair contractor and be certain they have adequate experience? How do we choose a driveway repair or sealing company and be certain they're not going to mislead us? How can a person be sure that the contractor they want to hire hasn't ripped off other homeowners off in the past? How can a person be sure the contractor they hire has the proper licensing and insurance? How much does asphalt driveway repair or sealing cost when it's done the right way? Is the contractor going to dilute the sealing material and increase their profits or are they going to apply it at manufacturer's specifications?
These are all questions that most of us ask, but really have no way of knowing or verifying! To do such extensive background verification can require days of research, time and money. Unfortunately, with little or no knowledge of asphalt driveway repair or driveway sealing, there's just no guarantee that the job will turn out right if you don't know what you're looking for.
