More and more rain

This week wasn't all about just repairing asphalt. Did you know we also supply lay and compact road base for hard stands and road ways?

One of our clients had a problem on a roadway where there were large fork lifts driving over carrying cars. The area was badly potholed and doing damage to the forklifts as well as the operators. Team Budget Asphalt supplied, laid and compacted new blue metal road base - now both the client and their employees are happy!

Water where it's not wanted

port of bris entry

When our client called us to rectify a water problem at the exit from the Port of Brisbane Cruise Liner terminal it was holding around 20mm of water and people weren't happy to walk through it. The tricky asphalt job was over 40m2 and we only had 5mm of fall to work with, if that, but we accepted the challenge.

We first set our levels to best divert the water. This was time consuming but well worth it as the finished job sucessfully solved the problem.

If you have a tricky asphalt job please give us a call - we would love to help you!

Driveway Crossover Solution

Sometimes a simple solution is all that's required to prevent car damage from your driveway crossover.  If you keep bottoming out your car, or if there's a hump too high on your driveway, talk to us about how we can asphalt over for a nice smooth and bump free entry.

Here, a concrete driveway crossover was not contoured down to the kerb. To prevent obstructing the gutter another concrete kerb was constructed beyond the gutter - but this did not solve the problem.  The owner was left with a dangerous and damaging driveway crossover.

To fix the problem we laid an asphalt contour to the outer kerb providing a smooth crossover.

Here are the before and after photos (click to enlarge).

At last sunshine!! For how long who knows.

This week has again been active for team Budget Asphalt, filling emergency potholes. And when it was raining we had a chance to do things that get put in the "soon" pile.

We have picked up our new 1.8 ton excavator which is exciting, it has all the bells and whistles to get our jobs done efficiently and professionally.

We also had a chance to re kit the team with new uniforms so we keep looking our best.

Asphalt Speed Humps

Well, it didn't rain, it poured! So we now have quite a backlog of asphalt repair work from Brisbane to the Gold Coast. We all know we need the rain but we have our fingers crossed for it to hold off long enough for us to catch up on overdue car park repairs, walkways and speed humps.

The past few days have seen Team Budget Asphalt hard at work doing emergency pot hole repairs to keep our clients, their staff and families safe. Asphalt speed humps, also known as speed bumps have grown in popularity due to their cost-saving over steel speed humps and speed bumps. Our customers enjoy the cost saving of asphalt speed humps which we continue building to slow down cars and keep everyone safe. Did you know that an asphalt speed hump is more cost effective than rubberised or steel speed humps which sometimes cost twice as much?

Until next week, Team Budget Asphalt say "keep safe" and don't wait until its too late to do your asphalt repairs.
