DeFord Contracting. Doing the work. Since 1967.
The state of your driveway or parking lot speaks volumes about your company. A dilapidated, overgrown, or old driveway or parking lot can frequently be the difference between a consumer choosing your business over your competitor's. Maintaining a clean, organised, and well-maintained surface, on the other hand, will go a long way toward generating a great impression on clients who are considering doing business with you.
DeFord Contracting has all of the resources to make your next project a huge success, whether it's a long commercial road, a parking lot, or both.
The value of your property might be immediately reduced by worn or damaged asphalt. It can even pose a hazard to vehicles and pedestrians in some circumstances, so you'll need the services of a reputable asphalt paving business to keep it in good shape. For decades, DeFord Contracting has specialised in asphalt repairs and upkeep. Our staff has experience working with tens of thousands of varied surfaces, so we know how asphalt deteriorates over time and how that deterioration affects functionality.
DeFord can handle any necessary maintenance task, from cracks, divots, and minor cosmetic issues to sub-base damage and substantial repairs, all while avoiding unnecessary downtime.
The process of reapplying liquid tar binders to the asphalt, allowing the asphalt to remain flexible and resistant to premature deterioration, is known as parking lot sealing. When the asphalt surface turns a dismal grey colour, the liquid tar has evaporated from the surface, leaving just the particles behind (sand, gravel and rocks). The asphalt becomes more prone to cracking, heaving, and potholing without the tar.
When added to a maintenance schedule, parking lot sealing is a cost-effective and reasonably inexpensive treatment that can significantly extend the life of the asphalt surface. Trust the industry leaders at DeFord Contracting for all your asphalt sealcoating needs.
Asphalt is the most often used material for bike routes today, and for good reason: it has the best cost-to-lifespan ratio of any material. It also sets quickly. The day after an asphalt route is laid down, it is ready for bikers. Another advantage of asphalt is that it can be repaired quickly and inexpensively, so a huge fracture does not necessitate repaving your trail.
Because asphalt is permeable by nature, snow melts and runs off more easily than concrete. With DeFord's experience and leadership in the industry, you can rest assured that your next bike and walking path project is built to last.
Catch basins serve as a parking lot drainage system. To channel drainage, they are erected into an asphalt or concrete parking lot. Over time, all catch basins will settle or decay. The joints between the frame and the grate casting, blocks, or mortar joints become weak as water enters the basin. The mortar will eventually crumble as a result of the water.
For over half-a-century, DeFord Contracting has been specializing in road building and repairs. Trust our industry-leading experience for your next catch basin repair and reconstruction project.
We recognise that companies face a variety of issues and obstacles that other property owners may not face. First and foremost, you want your pavement to make a positive impression on customers or clients, enhancing your company's image and recruiting new customers. Additionally, your parking lots and asphalt must be in good working order so that guests can securely enter your site, park their vehicles, and navigate.
That is why DeFord provides premier commercial pavement installation, restoration, repair, and maintenance that can improve the curb appeal of your asphalt, extending its lifespan and providing the highest quality use.
Potholes can become a major issue for many asphalt parking lots after a long, cold, and wet winter. This is especially true in industrial parking lots on a large scale. If left unchecked, these concerns can cause the damaged asphalt area to grow considerably larger, not to mention damage to the vehicles that are prone to the potholes.
DeFord Contracting can help you create a better parking lot. We give our clients with exceptional consistency and efficiency thanks to our more than 50 years of experience. To accomplish your project on schedule and on budget, our specialists plan every inch of your surface and employ well-maintained equipment.
We would like to pass on a huge thank you for your crews' behaviours and actions.
