One of the greatest benefits of being in the asphalt business is the chance it gives us to get out and see Wisconsin. I will admit a little bias here, but I think we live in the most beautiful state in the country. No matter what part of the state we find ourselves in, I always find a moment to admire the scenery. From the bluffs of Prairie Du Chien to the woodlands of Ashland there is plenty to admire.

While there are so many different places and sceneries Wisconsin has to offer, there is one staple that is prevalent theought the entire state; that is it's agriculture. Wisconsin farming has, for so long been a statement of what is great about the place we call home. Hardworking men and women that truly care about the quality of the products they produce, and take care of the land they operate. Wisconsin will always be a farm first state.

Over the many years we've had countless opportunities to provide our services to the Wisconsin farmer. From making their driveways a smoother, cleaner ride; to providing a clean working area in front of their shops. It's always been our privelage to add something of value to their farms. Of all the uses the agricultural industry has found for asphalt, none have received the rave reviews for function, and return on investment quite like the paved silage pads.

From our many conversations with past agricultural customers we feel it is safe to say there is no better use for asphalt on a farm. One customer in particular, Jason Wachter of Boscobel WI, estimated the amount of money he saved from reducing silage waste, was enough to pay for the entire project within the first year!

Asphalt is withuout question an enormous upgrade over gravel, and in ways over concrete as well. Certainly the benefits of aspahlt over gravel for a silage pad are obvious. However it's benefits over concrete maybe not so much. Unlike concrete, asphalt is a smooth continuous surface that is perfect for scraping down to the last bit of silage. Also the acids that are produced by the silage will eat at the surface of concrete causing it to chip out when scraped. Just last year I had a conversation with a Marshfield WI farmer, Clay Bernick, who lost a cow due to ingesting a piece of concrtete that had unknowingly been chipped out into the silage. This is obviously a huge issue for the farmer.

Using asphalt as a silage pad will substantially reduce the amount of waste putting A LOT more money in the pocket of the farmer, and in ways improve the quality and safety of the silage for their herds.

No doubt for many who have decided it's time for asphalt, this is the first question that comes to mind. We receive alot of calls every year from folks who just want a "quick over the phone" quote. While it may seem an easy question to answer, it really is'nt that simple. As a matter of fact we suggest to anyone who actually can get a quote over the phone from a company to be very cautious before moving forward. Many times contractors will use these deceptive sales tactics as a way to "clear out the competition" only to drive up the price later due to "unforseen issues".

We will list a few things that should go into building you a firm quote that is reliable. We will try our best not to get to lengthy, while still giving the information you need to get a true quote.

1. The most important factor in building you a project that will last for many years is your base or foundation. Contrary to what many think the depth of asphalt is not. No doubt thickness of aspahlt is extremely important, but the thickness won't mean much if the base is not stable. A true quote will start with a site inspection, which of course is impossible to do over the phone. You may need more base, the right base, or in rare cases all of your base will need to be removed and rebuilt. This plays a huge role in building your quote.

2. Grading and drainage issues. If your project has trouble with pitch or requires added materials to ensure proper drainage the quote will reflect this.

3. Another factor that will be accounted for is ease of installation. Large areas that will require handwork (areas that can't be reached by the paving machine), job layout, obstructions in the inatallation area, etc. Each of these will play a role in the amount of time, labor and material, a job will require.

4. Depth of asphalt required or requested for the job site. More asphalt more money.

5. Distance from the asphalt plant (or source of materials). Extra time and fuel plays a role in the quote.

These are not all the factors, but just a few of the more important ones. As you can see there is no universal number that fits every job. Every site has it's own unique issues that should be accounted for in person. Never take an over the phone quote as firm.

We hope the info here helps to assist you in getting a proper quote for your project. And remember to always call Custom Paving & Sealcoating for a   free   extensive quote built specifically for your project!
