For more than three decades, Casey Paving LLC has provided expert asphalt paving of driveways, roads, and city streets. Based in Reno, the company maintains licenses and bonding in Nevada and Idaho and travels extensively for various projects. Derived as a residue from specific crude oils, asphalt becomes asphalt concrete by combining it with mineral aggregate at an asphalt-mixing plant. Construction companies such as Casey Paving LLC then apply this composite in layers and compact it. Commonly utilized for roads, parking lots, airports, and driveways, the material also has found use in the core of embankment dams. In addition to major road and driveway projects, Casey Paving LLC completes crack filling, sealcoating, and resurfacing. The firm builds ranch roads as well, and takes on striping and patch paving projects. The latter process involves removing a damaged stretch of roadway or driveway and replacing it with a thicker section. Casey Paving LLC may then sealcoat the entire surface to restore a uniform appearance. Striping, applied by machine, must conform to all state and federal guidelines. Casey Paving LLC offers free estimates and considers trading or bartering. By 2009, more than 400,000 U.S. companies bartered each year, according to the International Reciprocal Trade Association. Like Casey Paving LLC, companies may barter individually. Others join large or small bartering co-ops, where they can post services and needs online. For tax purposes, the government still views barter exchanges as sales and purchases with applicable taxes due. Experience and expertise only go so far. Customer service remains the key ingredient to win over clients at Casey Paving LLC. One satisfied homeowner wrote to the company, praising its reliability and fair pricing. "This process didn't take very long and we now have a paved driveway that we just love." The homeowner had called five construction companies, and only Casey Paving LLC responded and fulfilled its promises.
