Have you taken the time to really look at your driveway or parking lot lately? Sometimes, the deterioration can happen so slowly and gradually that you might not realize that the once smooth and consistent surface has become patchy, cracked, and sun-damaged. Once you’ve determined that some work needs to be done, you have a couple options: you can attempt the work yourself or you can hire a skilled professional to complete the job. While it can be tempting to say you’ll done the work, here are three major reasons why you should hire a professional for your asphalt resurfacing:
- Equipment- Professionals who work with asphalt are already going to have all the equipment needed to take care of you, whether you have a large parking lot or small residential driveway. The mixing alone of these materials can be extremely labor-intensive, if not impossible, to do by hand, and pre-mixed materials can lack in quality.
- Experience– An experienced professional can determine if your area needs to be completely torn up and replaced or if you simply need an asphalt resurfacing. Determining what your driveway or parking lot needs to stay strong and last isn’t a skill that can be learned from a website, but rather relies upon years of experience of working within your area.
- Cost- Yes, that’s right — we added cost to a list of reasons why you should choose a professional! Working with asphalt is hot, sweaty, and physically demanding work. While you might save a little money on the upfront cost by choosing the DIY route, your end product will not have the same quality or lifespan as a professional one, which can end up costing you in the long run.
