People and businesses are complaining about the hot weather and extended warm seasons but O'Neil's Paving is quietly cheering the extended profit seasons.
Online PR News – 21-August-2012 – Charlotte, NC – Many farmers are watching as their crops fail in high heat and drought, people are suffering under record high temperatures, roads have buckled, spring came earlier and summer is expected to last longer, but despite all of the heat related problems, this hot weather is allowing asphalt paving companies to extend their work season, http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2012/08/19/droughts-been-goodfor-highway-builders.html.
"Yes, the weather is unbearably hot, but this means we get to work more," said Tom O'Neil of O'Neil's Paving working in Charlotte, NC.
While many people are complaining about the extremely warm weather, Tom O'Neil says, "We couldn't be more excited for the hot conditions and the possibilities of having a longer warm season in which to get our work accomplished."
Due to the conditions required for laying asphalt it is impossible for paving companies like O'Neil's Paving to work in cool or cold climates. The asphalt needs to be hot, around 280-330 degrees Fahrenheit, when it is layered onto the road. A cold road surface makes it very problematic to do a quality job.
The further south you go the longer work season you have and in the Charlotte, NC area there is a mix of elevations to work with. The North Carolina mountains have a much shorter period of time available to lay asphalt before it gets too cold. Whereas in the Piedmont of South Carolina a paving company may experience an additional 2 or even 3 months more in which to work.
sealcoating and line striping are also made difficult by cold weather conditions. Sealcoating is a process where a layer of thin liquid asphalt is spray painted over a parking lot or road surface to help protect and extend the life of the asphalt from cold weather cracking and other damaging conditions.
"It's hard on the crews when the temperature is so hot but everybody knows we've got jobs to get done, at least we're working," said Tom O'Neil, referring to the sluggish economy.
