Sealcoating Duluth sample

Nearly 25 Years of Experience But we love this May 2013 Project

This photo is from a May 2013 residential sealcoating job we finished. This is a newer driveway and it came out great. For new blacktop the asphalt industry recommends you sealcoat after one year. We suggest a double coat that year, which can last up to five years.

So here we are again, in 2013 helping the Twin Ports and surrounding areas with asphalt sealcoating, paving and maintenance. We still have our customer satisfaction guarantee, and we will add more and more samples like this of our quality sealcoating and asphalt repair and renewal work.

Thank you as always.

Our speciality is repair and long term maintenance of parking lots and asphalt. We also provide quality paving services with our same satisfaction guarantees, but we try to save existing asphalt first.

These are very difficult economic times for many. Saving your driveway and parking lot via maintenance and prevention like sealcoating and crack filling is a must do. For some a project that looks unsaveable can be brought back to decent life.

“We’ve added years onto the life of asphalt in the Twin Ports area. Often we get a call for blacktopping and we save the customers a lot of money by saving their parking lot or driveway.

“We say, before you call the pavers, call us, the savers.”

This has long been a unique difference from our company. Many firms also do paving but they view your parking lot or driveway project through the eyes of paving only. We view you driveway and parking lot as an significant investment. If the existing asphalt is still sound, but looking haggard you will be amazed at how we can save your asphalt. It’s worth an estimate anyway.

My name and reputation goes into all of our work. Life long Twin Ports Resident and A-1 Asphalt owner Jon Hetzel as a lad of Superior.

Dick Tracy Discusses Reputable Sealcoating and Asphalt Companies

Dick Tracy one of America’s longest running comic strips had a blurb on honest sealcoating and asphalt companies. While the cartoon refers to all the trades, we found it funny and appropriate that they would use a sealcoating company as a sample.

Dick Tracy even suggests, "Use an asphalt company that is established in the area. We think over 20 years is established!

Fortunately in Duluth and Superior, most of our asphalt competitors are honest firms. The quality of our work differs, but most have intentions of being in business for a long time. But often a fly by night company will come into the Northland. Asphalt repair, paving and sealcoating is not only expensive, it’s important for the long term preservation of your asphalt. Leaving a repair, paving or sealcoating job to an unknown company is risky.

When it comes to price, we are always competitive and often can come in with the best price. But there are tricks that companies can use to make their margins. That’s not a path A-1 Asphalt has taken for over 20 years of business in Duluth and Superior and Northern Wisconsin and Minnesota. If you want to maintain your asphalt investment, work with a company that uses the best product and has the experience to maximize your maintenance efforts. We are standing by.
