Sinkholes in Your Parking Lot?

January 18th, 2018

We treat parking lots a lot like many of us treat our health; we typically wait to call the professional and have them take a look until an issue becomes visible.

When these issues occur, in the same way we want a doctor to approach our health, we want to inform our customers on the actual root of…

Choosing THE Right Contractor

December 19th, 2017

The Winter season is THE best time to get a contract in place for your Spring parking lot projects. The last of the asphalt plants close around the beginning of December so it allows for time for contractors to look at your project outside of the busy construction season and most often will give you the opportunity for better pricing! There is no shortage of commercial parking lot paving contractors within the Chicagoland market. For example, a quick search on The Better Business Bureau website using the term “paving contractor” specific to our area will provide a result of 297…
