This is a screen shot of our Addaline App created to make your work easier. You will be able to see your estimates at any stage. You can request an estimate. You can see all your completed estimates, approve them or decline them, or select the work you want completed. The Addaline App shows you your history.

“Busy.” Now there is a buzz word to which we can all relate.

At Addaline, we know you are extremely busy and time is a valuable commodity. With that in mind we’re pleased to be able to provide you increased access and efficient functionality with our soon-to-be released Asphalt Maintenance App.

It will be a revolutionary time-saver for the management of your properties when it comes to asphalt maintenance. In addition to being able to view all of your asphalt estimates with clear photographic descriptions, the new app will provide you with your estimates faster, resulting in a quicker decision-making process which will filter down to happy tenants, residents, property owners and guests on your properties.

The app will also provide the ability to request new estimates, view scheduling (the day the work is scheduled to get under way on your properties), provide a direct path of contact, through messaging, with our field representatives and offices, and many more features, designed to save you time and maintain our promise to you of crystal clear communication.

You can share the estimates with relevant stakeholders, saving you time and streamlining your ability to organize your estimates, on your computer or on your phone.

While this aspect of the Addaline Asphalt Maintenance App is not quite ready for an official unveiling, it will be coming soon and we know it’s important to keep our valued customers informed of new developments to the services we provide.

So get ready folks, we’re about to make your job a little bit easier.

Fall – stop water damage in its tracks

Another pot hole disappears. The asphalt is prepared for the roller which pinches off the seams. Repairs completed in the fall decreases the damage winter does to your parking lot.

Another pot hole disappears. The asphalt is prepared for the roller which pinches off the seams. Repairs completed in the fall decreases the damage winter does to your parking lot.

Ensuring the integrity of your parking lot and stopping water from getting into and under your asphalt is key.

Water is the enemy particularly the freeze and thaw cycles we have throughout the winter and spring. When water gets into the cracks and openings in your asphalt, it moves the pavement up and down, and back and forth creating weaknesses in the asphalt. These weak spots go on to form potholes.

Water can also get under the pavement and wash away the sub-base supporting the asphalt above. Pavement which is not supported will break away and form potholes.

Maintaining and repairing your pavement sooner rather than later is cheaper. If you do no maintenance, you will need to repave the lot earlier than necessary. Some less expensive maintenance work early on will put off the need to repave and help eliminate slips, trips and fall hazards.

Addaline does concrete repairs

Addaline repairs concrete. We have found our customers often need a number of parking lot repair services—asphalt and catch basin and concrete repairs, crack fill and line painting. We do our best to provide one stop shopping. Dealing with fewer contractors is less time consuming.

Our asphalt consultants often see damaged concrete curbs. The usual problem is the curb has been hit by a snow plow.

Also, catch basins can be embedded in a concrete curb. The concrete needs to be removed, so the catch basin can be fixed properly, then replaced. Unlike some other companies, Addaline staff add pins to new concrete. Pinning the new concrete to the existing concrete minimalizes shifting as the temperatures changes throughout the year.

Another potential concrete problem is over time sidewalks can shift and create trip hazards. Depending on the extent of the damage, part of the sidewalk should be replaced or the concrete scarified to eliminate these trip hazards.
