We received a quote from a client who was looking for pothole patching in Columbia Heights, MN. The client called with concerns about a growing pothole located at the entrance to his parking lot. He told us that a number of customers had informed him of the issue. After personally examining the pothole, and the severity, he thought that it needed to be fixed ASAP. He wanted to avoid any customers damaging their vehicles as they attempted to enter his parking lot. He also wanted to reduce the risk of any personal injury that may occur to customers walking to his store. We explained to him that we were happy to help him with his asphalt repair and that we would be at the site to evaluate within a few days.
After evaluating the damage and severity of the pothole we reassured the client that we could expertly repair the asphalt. Because of the severity of the cracking, and the loose asphalt, we would need to perform a digout patching job. This is an effective solution when there is badly damaged asphalt that needs to be removed. After removal, new asphalt is applied to the location in order to create a nice, clean, level area.
By the time we had finished the patching job, it was hard to tell that there had been a hole in the ground not long before that. We were very pleased with the finished product and so was the client. He asked us about any asphalt maintenance tips that might help to avoid such things from occurring in the future. We explained to him that consistent sealcoating, sweeping, and other measures would help to reduce his risk. He thanked us for everything, and after shaking client’ss hand, we were on our way back to the shop.
