It’s only 5:21 PM as I sit here writing but it’s just about pitch black outside my window. I still can’t believe that December has already arrived and we will be bidding 2015 farewell all too soon. I tell you, this time of year always requires just a little extra effort to get up and get moving. The cold and the dark just makes for good hibernation. But, in my line of work, there simply isn’t any room for a seasonal break. No, in the asphalt paving industry, summer’s heat brings asphalt paving jobs, and seal coating projects, and new blacktop driveway constructions. And, when summer relents and gives way to the cool, then the cold, then the frigid, all that changes for us asphalt paving guys is that we dress more warmly and add additional workload to our days: snow removal.

Yes, you read that right.  Snow removal.  Sad, huh?  It’s that time of year again when the dreaded “s” word crosses our lips.  Often.


Now, to be fair, the last few winters have been unseasonably cold and the snowfall has been unusually high for Maryland.  Even places around here that typically don’t see much snowfall – Glenelg, Clarksville, Dayton, and Columbia – saw significant amounts of snow.  Kids loved it.  Parents dreaded it.  And, we snow removal companies, we cleared it.

So, since we find ourselves here in December, hesitantly waiting to see what kind of winter this will be, whether we will be pummeled with snow or if we will escape with only mild conditions, I figured that it would be good to give you some sort of preparation.  Just in case.   Just in case this winter turns out to be in same fashion as the last three or four.

As a professional snow plow contractor, who has cleared snow for decades’ worth of winters, I came across an article that was worth sharing as it presents some key considerations as you research who to call on when your driveway or parking lot needs plowing.  This article, entitled “6 Tips You Need to Know Before Hiring a Snow Removal Contractor” is short, easy to read, and worth some thought as you search for the perfect snow removal company to meet your needs.  Whether you’re looking for residential snow plowing service or you’re in the market for a commercial snow removal company, we at A&M Asphalt Paving are ready, willing, and able to tackle any snow removal job.  We’ve got almost 30 years of experience in the industry, we have the equipment to perform only the best of work, and we have the customer service that keeps our customers coming back season after season.  Please, by all means, read the article below, then do your homework, then give us a call.  We will be waiting to hear from you and looking forward to the opportunity to serve you!

6 Tips You Need to Know Before Hiring a Snow Removal Contractor


The cold weather hasn’t left yet and some locations have received several inches of snow fall. Removing mounds of snow can be a chore. Perhaps your plan is to leave the shovel in the garage this winter and hire a snow-removal contractor instead. Before you do, Better Business Bureau recommends the following tips:

  1. Get several estimates. Prices can vary widely and are usually based on the amount of work, which takes into account the layout of the property, size of the area to be cleared, and whether the customer, in addition to plowing, requests shoveling or snow blowing to remove excess snow from other areas. Remember, the least expensive service is not always the best service.
  2. Ask the contractor about additional charges and price options. Beside the quoted price, there are sometimes additional charges during large storms. After the snow reaches a certain depth, some snow removal contractors charge by the inch, so you’ll want to find out how the company calculates the size of the snowfall. Other contractors may offer a fixed price for an entire season, regardless of the amount of snow.
  3. Make sure you know what services you’re getting. Find out exactly what’s included in the estimate. Are the walks and steps included? What about the cost of sand and salt? Will the company clear only after the storm, or during the snowfall as well? If the contractor has to come back, is there an additional charge? Ask if the company will remove heavy snow loads from a building roof top? Is there an additional charge?


I hope that helps as you look for a reliable, reasonably priced, professional snow removal company to plow this winter.  And, I sure hope that you will give us a call at A&M Asphalt Paving to do any snow removal job you may need or, even better, for any asphalt paving job.

Like you, as I drive around the area, I have been noticing a considerable amount of potholes and cracked up parking lots in desperate need of asphalt paving or asphalt repair.  Unfortunately, the long, cold winter has taken its toll on all asphalt surfaces in the region- from commercial parking lots to private asphalt driveways.

But, how does the cold season wreak such havoc on our parking lots and other asphalt surfaces?  How is it that a freezing winter can lend to the need for asphalt paving services come spring?  Well, for one, all that cold white stuff (not gonna say the S word, don’t wanna jinx Mother Nature) falls and coats asphalt surfaces.  When the sun’s rays begin to melt that precipitation, the water drains through the small cracks and seep holes within the asphalt.  However, after the sun goes down each night and temperatures begin to fall, that melted liquid begins to freeze again.  This freeze / thaw / re-freeze process takes place over the course of, oftentimes, days.  With each expanding and contracting that is characteristic of freezing and melting, the actual asphalt expands and contracts as well.  Understandably, with time, this results in those tiny cracks and seep holes getting bigger.

But, how do potholes happen?

Well, as vehicles drive over these cracks that we just discussed, pieces of the loosened and compromised asphalt are pushed out and away and, sometimes in just a matter of days, a crack becomes a pothole.

Parking lot repair and asphalt repair and maintenance is absolutely essential in not just preserving the integrity of asphalt surfaces, but also reducing the risk of motor vehicle damage.

If you are a home owner, property manager, or business owner with an asphalt driveway or parking lot, please do a quick once over.  Inspect your asphalt surfaces for potholes or cracked surfaces before the problem grows.

No matter where your location, commercial and residential property owners across Maryland have certainly had their hands full with trying to keep snow and ice off of their asphalt.  Just when the blacktop driveway is cleared of the wintery mess, another blast of snow comes along and takes its place.  But, not to worry- all the snow days that the kids have had has allowed for some extra shoveling help, right?  

It’s not a secret- winter can be brutal.  This winter, and last winter as well, has probably caused a good number of Maryland folk to plan a move to a warmer latitude.  Palm trees and crystal blue water sure sounds like heaven right now!  Yes, I have to admit that I’ve even thought long and hard about a place far, far away from these subarctic temperatures. 

But, then I remember that spring will come!  That’s good news, now isn’t it?  In the dead of winter, it sure is easy to forget that spring really does make an appearance every year.  And, it won’t fail us this year.  Spring’s thaw is right around the corner. Unfortunately, so is the discovery of damaged asphalt!

We told you that winter is brutal.  And, as far as your asphalt is concerned, winter provides no exception.  When winter’s grip finally loosens, many a property owner has discovered that it has left its mark.  As the asphalt driveway reappears, the damage left behind from the ice- and all the chemicals used to melt it- begins to make itself known.  It’s true.  Those layers of snow and ice that plagued you all winter long have a way of leaving your beautiful blacktop surfaces in a state of disrepair.

Another factor that can leave you with unwelcome asphalt surprises is the level of automobile activity that has pounded away at your asphalt all winter long.  Did you use heavy machinery to clear your asphalt surfaces?  Did you have tons of traffic to your place of business?  The craters that can appear over a winter season have a way of being malicious.  Not only are they unsightly and a sign of damage that needs to be repaired, but they can certainly damage vehicles that dare to travel over top.  Out of alignment front ends, tire blowouts, or worse.  Potholes are a pain for a number of reasons.  And, they’re also a liability.

So, don’t put it off!  Get your asphalt driveway, asphalt parking lot, or any other asphalt surface repaired and looking good as new.  If you’re searching for a parking lot repair, asphalt repair, or asphalt paving company in Severna Park, Severn, Arbutus, or Glen Burnie, MD, make sure to give the pros at A & M Asphalt Paving a call today!   (410) 551-2330

Yes, winter is fast approaching and many of you are probably thinking of not only the holidays to come but of the cold winter months ahead. Guess what? At A&M Asphalt Paving we are, too. In fact, the cold temperatures looming ahead have a way of spurring people on to action. For instance, in the late fall or early winter of EVERY year, we receive calls from business owners and homeowners that are searching for asphalt paving and driveway paving contractors in Howard County, MD.

Many of these calls begin by asking us whether or not asphalt can even be laid in the winter or if it’s strictly to be applied on warmer days. Apparently, only-on-a-warm-day asphalt paving is an all-too-common misconception. It’s our pleasure to inform our customers that there are, in fact, asphalt applications that actually work quite well in the colder months. In fact, each winter we get enough work that we decided long ago to cancel our gym memberships as we prefer to stay active by putting down asphalt in the cold rather than hopping on a treadmill.

All kidding aside, if your driveway or parking lot is in need of repair, or you just finished building your dream home and need to complete the look with a beautiful blacktop driveway curb appeal, call A&M Asphalt Paving today!
