A better asphalt result


After recently completing this driveway overlay for our client we were happy that our client wanted to do the remainder as they were so happy with the result. After being quoted to remove reconstruct and replace which would of cost thousands they decided to get Budget Asphalt to do the overlay which was far more cost effective with the same if not better result.

Beware of dodgy operators

Unfortunately, there are plenty of backyard operators in the asphalt repair industry. There are common traps that will lead to disappointment and cause pedestrians and businesses to be inconvenienced. However, all of this can be avoided if you are careful and know what to look for.

To avoid dodgy jobs and expensive repairs down the track here are a few things to be aware of when contracting your asphalt job:

  • Underquoting - be careful of operators that quote a ridiculously cheap price. Some will actually quote you less than what they know it will cost them to do the job leading to YOU being stung with extras down the track.
  • Incomplete quoting - make sure that your quote includes everything that will be needed to complete the job.
  • No fixed timeframes - get your timing expectations in writing.
  • Using sub-standard materials - make sure your contractor is using quality materials best suited for the job and not watered down or defective asphalt.

Make sure you get a professional asphalt job every time - Call or email the experts at BUDGET ASPHALT REPAIRS.

Hot weather and asphalt

44 degrees in Brisbane was hot and not good for the roads and carparks. What this causes is asphalt bleeding which simply means the emulsion starts coming through the chip seal. Then, with hot car tyres driving over it, the areas start to peel away removing the entire seal and exposing the base work. Let's hope we don't see that sort of weather for too often!
