Preparing For Your Project With Earth Road inc Asphalt

An asphalt paving project is a major undertaking even if the area being paved is relatively small. Taking the time to plan is important for your project to succeed, as asphalt paving in Syracuse may affect a lot of people.

All of our customers have the same expectations – they expect their job to go smoothly. To make sure everything goes as expected, here are some things that need to be taken care of before work starts.


Plan carefully

There is a reason you want to install asphalt paving in Syracuse New York and to get the best results possible, you will have to communicate your objective. Is this a new installation, or a repair and resurfacing job? Is it for a road surface or a parking lot? Having a clear goal will increase the ease with which you can plan.


Two site maps make the process easier. The first map will show the area as it is now, and the second will show it as it will be when the work is completed (if this is an asphalt repair job only one map may be needed indicating the areas that need attention).


When the work is to be completed in a public area, the map should include any nearby properties that may be affected by the work. Neighbors will need to be notified if the work may require access to their property to complete, or if their own property access may be restricted.


If the work will require road closures or causes interference with public services, the appropriate authorities will need to be informed and the required permits will need to be obtained.


This does not need to happen until the plans have been finalized, but there may be serious implications if action is not taken before the work commences.

Have your plan approved by our team

While you know what you want to achieve, there may be physical or technical limitations that mean your plan will need modification. Our specialist team of asphalt contractors in New York will check over your plan to ensure everything will happen as intended.


This may involve one (or more) site visits to obtain accurate measurements and to check for any hazards. We will be able to help you revise your plans where necessary and confirm what permits you may require.


At this stage, we will be able to supply an estimate of the costs involved, as well as an indication of the amount of time it will take to complete the work. Asphalt paving in Syracuse is not always priced by the square yard, as preparatory and other works may be required to provide the best surface for laying the new asphalt on.


Earth Road Inc aims to provide you with competitive prices. When you’re happy with the plan and the pricing, you’ll be required to follow through on any changes or recommendations we have made before we can begin work.


Prepare the area for asphalt

The area must be clean and tidy before we begin, or the job may be delayed due to the cleanup process necessary. Asphalt must be laid on a carefully prepared sublayer and any debris or unwanted items must be removed prior to work commencing.


Additionally, the required permits must have been obtained, and all notices to local residents affected by the work must have been delivered.


If the required permits are not obtained your job may have to be delayed or canceled as the permits are a legal requirement that we need to operate.


The day of the installation

Our team will notify you of the time that they will arrive on site and the proposed order of work. You must ensure that our team of Syracuse asphalt experts can gain access to the site. While the team will then be able to take care of the job without further assistance, should any issue arise please make sure that you have left contact details with the team.

It is often the case that something minor will need confirming, but without the confirmation, we would be unable to proceed.
