Excelsior Asphalt Company Keeps Diner Clean

Plehal Blacktopping was recently contacted by a local diner owner in Excelsior. The diner owners in Excelsior needed a new parking lot after the owner realized that the gravel cement mix they had would start causing damage and was always making the inside of the diner dirty whenever it snowed or rained. Customers would track in the cement mix and it was just getting to be a drag trying to keep the diner clean. The owners knew that nobody wants to eat at a diner that looks dirty so he called Plehal Blacktopping for the top Excelsior asphalt company services they knew they would be able to count on.

The Plehal Blacktopping parking lot specialists arrived on Sunday to start the asphalt project. The customer asked us to begin on Sunday, because he was closed. The crew started removing the current parking lot, then prepping the area for the new blacktop parking lot. Before the scheduled date that the parking lot was to be done, our crew had the parking lot finished and looking amazing! The owner arrived Thursday morning and couldn’t get over how great the parking lot looked. He said Plehal Blacktopping did not let him down one bit and we provided him with the parking lot that he had wanted for many years. He said his customers can park safely and his employees can finally quit worrying about cleaning up messy cement in the diner, thanks to the asphalt company Excelsior can trust.

Driveway Replacement in Edina After Severe Damage

Plehal Blacktopping was scheduled to for a driveway paving service in Edina. This customer needed a repair after noticing all of the cracks that needed to be addressed. We suggested a basic driveway replacement and paving service. Our crew arrived on time and began removing the existing asphalt. We recycle the existing asphalt, so it is hauled away to the recycling facility. Our crew then adds the base material, so the driveway would have the proper drainage. Once this step was completed, we used our vibratory drum roller to compact the materials.

We informed the customer that the driveway paving service was completed and he checked it out. He said the driveway looked great. He thanked the Plehal Blacktopping crew for doing a great job, quickly, and affordably. The owner of the driveway actually even thanked us for the most excellent Edina driveway replacement he had ever seen. We were thrilled to do a great job and have actually gotten a few leads just from this one customer gushing about our good work all over town!

Edina Home Restores Curb Appeal After Sealcoat

An Edina RN called Plehal Blacktopping to sealcoat her driveway. It was in great condition, but faded with time and had minor cracks, which lowered the curb appeal appearance. The Plehal Blacktopping crew arrived bright and early on Friday, as the customer had requested, and immediately started working on the best Edina Sealcoating the town had ever seen. The crew first went over the driveway to fill any major cracks prior to the sealcoating, then we applied the asphalt sealer with a brush and squeegee to ensure the driveway was entirely covered.

Once the sealcoating had been applied, the crew cleaned up the site and let the customer know that his driveway was done. She came out to look at the driveway and said, “It looks great, guys!” She said that she had had another blacktopping company come out, but they recommended a replacement which was unnecessary. After, she called Plehal Blacktopping and our specialists suggested the sealcoating. She was thrilled with our work and the price, and said she would be sure to recommend us to her friends and family.

Richfield Parking Lot Maintenance for Driving School Improvements

After a long, hot summer of non-stop teen drivers on its driving school lot, the time had come for parking lot maintenance Richfield needed at their instruction facilities. The first call they made was to Plehal Asphalt. The work was minimal, but it was much needed, since we had a new batch of students coming in soon, and didn’t want to have our cars take on additional beating with these inexperienced student drivers.

We not only gave them an extremely reasonable price quote for the improvements and repairs we had to make, and we also did the work in virtually no time at all. In fact, they were able to open their doors right back up within a few days time so they could get back to what we do best, and help those student drivers go out to get their driver’s license. This low price was a great investment for their facilities, as it gave the driving school both the professional appearance it needed and helped to draw in new students. They saw how well kept the facilities were year round.

We did not require too much work to be done on the asphalt, but we did know that potholes had to be filled, a few small patches of pavement had to be replaced, and new lines had to be drawn into place. The student drivers needed a reliable surface to practice their driving skills. Since the lots take on quite a bit of abuse with each new set of students that comes in, they have to do maintenance work regularly. They told us that they won’t hesitate to call Plehal back the next time they need any work done. Whether it is a small area or the entire pavement area which has to be replaced at our driving school facilities.

Edina Driveway Paving Repairs Weather Damage

One of our Edina customers called for our driveway paving service. The base was good, but a few areas of the driveway had broken up from weather damage. We recommended our basic driveway repair, which would include saw-cutting and removing the bad areas in the driveway, then installing a new layer of asphalt. We arrived on-time and started cutting the areas that were broken up. After they were cut and removed, we compacted the base material, then installed a new layer of asphalt.

The driveway was repaired by mid-afternoon. The customer wasn’t home when the crew was done, so we called the customer the following morning to see what he thought of the driveway repair. He said he was impressed that the crew didn’t get asphalt on his landscaping and said we were very professional!

Beware – Protect Yourself

As you consider having asphalt work done on your property be sure you are dealing with a reputable company. Plehal Blacktopping has been in business since 1949 and is a member of the Minnesota Asphalt paving Association.

Many door to door solicitors are not local businesses and are in it for the quick buck. With only a cell phone and a briefcase, it may be impossible to get them back to complete the job or perform any corrective work that may be necessary.

More and more cities are now requiring permits before any work can be done in large part to help protect their residents.

There are many good companies in the Twin Cities, if you have any doubts, contact your local City building inspection department, Bettor Business Bureau, or ask that the contractor provide you with Proof of Insurance.

REMEMBER: There really are no cheap deals and the quality of the job remains long after the price is forgotten!

Plehal Blacktopping would like to do your job and will be here long into the future!

Real Estate Company Gives Residents Gift of Excellent Parking

A short time ago Plehal Blacktopping completed an asphalt repair for a real estate company in Twin Cities, Minnesota. The real estate company contacted us because they were looking for a company that was the best asphalt repair Twin Cities and Minnesota could provide. The real estate company wanted Plehal Blacktopping to provide asphalt repair and spring maintenance on several of their rental properties around the city. They knew the importance of having their asphalt safe, sturdy, and attractive so they could easily rent the properties.

The Plehal Blacktopping crew arrived at the first location to do asphalt repair. The first property’s asphalt had cracks, and the crew filled them and added sealcoating to the asphalt. The Plehal Blacktopping crew headed across the cities to the second property. The second property was in pretty good condition. The crew was going to do a spring maintenance, which would thoroughly clean the asphalt. The asphalt would first be swept. We use the latest equipment and products with our spring maintenance. As soon as the sweeping was completed, the crew washed down and cleaned the parking lot. When the crew was finished the parking lot looked great, and was ready for springtime.

We contacted the real estate company to let them know that we completed the asphalt repair jobs on both locations. The owner of the real estate company contacted us the following day. One of their associates went to look at the parking lots that we serviced, so he could look over our work. He said that the Plehal crew did a fantastic job and was incredibly impressed. He said that both lots were exactly what they were expecting and ought to look like.
