Information on Asphalt:

Asphalt pavement is one of America’s building blocks. The United States has more than 2 million miles of paved roads and highways, and 94 percent of those are surfaced with asphalt.

 The nation has around 4,000 asphalt plants, at least one in every congressional district. Each year, these plants produce 500 to 550 million tons of asphalt pavement material worth in excess of $30 billion. The industry supports employment for more than 300,000 Americans. Asphalt pavement material is a precisely engineered product composed of about 95 percent stone, sand, and gravel by weight, and about 5 percent asphalt cement, a petroleum product. Asphalt cement acts as the glue to hold the pavement together.

 This common material gets us from our homes to our workplaces and schools. It allows us access to medical care and emergency assistance. It transports us to places of worship, recreation, and shopping. With modern "just-in-time" inventory systems, the highway is the warehouse, and manufacturers and retailers rely on trucks to get goods to them on schedule.

 Asphalt is America’s most recycled material. Reclaimed asphalt is not just reusable as a "black rock" – the asphalt cement in the reclaimed pavement is reactivated to become an integral part of the new pavement. The recycled asphalt cement replaces part of the new asphalt cement required for the pavement, reducing costs for road agencies.

 Recycling is just one reason that asphalt is the most sustainable pavement. Asphalt pavements that are designed and constructed as Perpetual Pavements never need to be removed and replaced. They are permanent structures. The only maintenance needed is infrequent replacement of the surface – this material is removed and recycled.

Be on the Watch for Paving Scams

JEFFERSON CITY - With warmer weather comes the urge to tackle those home improvement projects.  And while reputable contracting companies are the rule not the exception, the Missouri Department of Transportation is reminding you to be on the lookout for traveling dealers pitching driveway paving offers that are too good to be true.
Specifically, the department says to be wary of paving companies that approach your home claiming to have extra asphalt left over from a job and offering to pave your driveway. Workmanship can be poor and the costs can be much higher than what was originally quoted.
Most contractors doing business in Missouri are ethical and reliable and provide quality craftsmanship and service.  The traveling dealers give legitimate firms a black eye because it's difficult to follow up with them and they often provide little or no preparation work, use cheap or not enough material and employ untrained or inexperienced workers.
The Better Business Bureau recommends the following steps to protect yourself against less than reputable paving companies:

•Ask for local references and verify that the contractor is in compliance with local licensing, bonding and insuring requirements.
•Ask for identification and make a note of the license plate number on the contractor's vehicle.
•Solicit two or three bids for the work you are planning, but don't automatically accept the lowest.
•Make sure all bids are based on the same materials.
•Read all agreements and guarantees before signing.
•Make sure you understand all terms and conditions.
•Never sign a contract with sections left blank.
•Do not pay for work in advance. Pay by check when the work is satisfactory.

You can contact the Better Business Bureau with any complaints by visiting http://www.bbb.org/. Consumers can also verify the status of a contractor with the Department of Consumer Protection at 800-842-2649.
