1. Initial Consultation
Each job starts with a phone call or email to the office. Our office staff will ask you a few questions about your project prior to scheduling an estimator to evaluate the project.
2. On-Site Meeting
Once a bid meeting has been scheduled, a JV Lucas Estimator will come out to meet with you and evaluate your asphalt needs. Our estimator will give you a detailed outline of what to expect for your upcoming project.
3. Sending a Bid
Once the on-site meeting is complete, our estimator will generate a bid using our online project management system. A detailed description of the job will be presented with pictures of the site. Clients are encouraged to contact our sales team if they have follow-up questions or concerns.
4. Scheduling a Project
Once you accept the bid, a member of our team will send a DocuSign copy of the bid for signature. Once signed, our scheduling coordinator will reach out to discuss potential project start dates.
5. On-Site Work
Our crews typically start around 7:00 AM each day unless instructed otherwise. If barricades and signage are required for the project, a member of our crew will post them 72 hours prior to the start date.
The team will start by setting up traffic control if need be and then will begin to prepare the site. The on-site process will vary depending on the type of project. Our bids detail each step of the project from start to finish.
6. Project Completion
Upon completion of any project, our crew foreman will walk the job with the client to make sure everything was completed to the satisfaction of both the client and our team. The crew will not leave until all project details are met. Once the client is satisfied with the work, an invoice will be sent.
7. Caring for Your Asphalt
JV Lucas Paving, Inc. recommends all clients sealcoat their new asphalt 1-2 years after completion and then every 4 years thereafter. Sealcoating your asphalt will extend the life of your asphalt surface as well as give it a fresh look every few years.
