We hereby warrant all sealcoating applications against defects in material and workmanship for a period of one year from date of application. We will honor all written claims under the following conditions and guidelines. Baker Asphalt inc, cannot be responsible for damage of sealer due to lawn chemicals or sprinklers, domestic animals, foot or vehicle traffic for the appropriate sealer cure time. This is usually 24 to 48 hours.
Salt applications, also for any gas, oil or anti-freeze on your sealed surface.
Baker Asphalt inc will not be responsible for sealer peeling and flaking due to oil or gas stains on asphalt. Although we will not warrant this we will do our best to prime and clean these areas to ensure the sealer adheres to the asphalt. Baker Asphalt inc cannot be responsible for peeling and flaking due to tree sap. The owner of the driveway is responsible for power washing their drive way before application to ensure there is no tree sap on the asphalt surface. Almost all trees leave a form of invisible sap on asphalt surfaces and cause the sealer to peel after the first winter. Baker Asphalt inc will have final say should an issue arise in whether or not it is a warranty repair or non warranty repair. Baker Asphalt inc will certainly stand behind anything we feel we are responsible for. Everyday products chalk are some things that will come through the sealer. Chocolate has oil and paraffin wax in it and will peel the sealer (Believe it or not this happened to a customer). Pitch from pin trees ( and possible other sap dripping trees) brown ring marks or streaks will come through the sealer.
Standing gravel from over the winter wears the sealer prematurely. Also tire chains on snowblowers will leave marks on the asphalt.
lawn chemicals that are sprayed on the grass and allowed to over spray on the sealer.
Stick to these products used to wash your car if you use them do it on the street or on your lawn sealer will not stick to these products it will cause a milky white film on the asphalt.
Foam tire cleaner for white wall that are silicone based product.
Anything that has a paraffin wax base.
We live in a climate where frost is in and out of the ground several times a year. This movement of the ground can result in low spots high spots and problems that may not have been at the time of installation of the asphalt. These ares may heave and settle many times during winter cycles. or may not occur for several years.
Customer will be responsible for all base sub base and soil testing costs not included in surface weight testing grade and pave proposals only include surface weight as per the ability of the top surface to withstand paving equipment 72000 pounds and do not include core samples of sub base a paving contractor who provides both the sub base surface base materials may elect at his discretion to warrant issues not typically covered under standard warranty provisions. We are not responsible for any damage to concrete, Paver bricks garage floors. Treated or stained concrete, side walks, existing asphalt of siding caused be equipment crossing rolling driving, or normal installation is not covered although we make every effort to be a careful as possible.
What sets a apart from our competitors is that we are not just a paving contractor but rather a full service paving and maintenance company. We have the equipment and experienced staff to provide the installation as well as maintain and make any necessary repairs to existing asphalt.
To minimize the occurrence of cracking, and to protect the surface from becoming dry and rough, It is strongly recommended that new asphalt be sealed withing 1 year after job is done. and every 2 years thereafter. Unlike concrete which may also crack, asphalt can be repaired and maintained. Sealing the asphalt will reduce oxidation of the surface caused form the sun this reduced oxidation will keep the asphalt pliable which will allow for the slight ground movement without causing excessive cracking. Sealing also helps protect the surface from contaminants such as oil salt or chemicals that would otherwise damage the asphalt cracks even minimal should always be filled before the winter season to avoid water melting snow form getting beneath the surface and freezing. It is not abnormal for previously filled cracks to re open during a winter frost cycle.
