Rick Garrett of Garrett Paving Company was awarded one of only ten awards given by the National Asphalt Pavement Association this year for Quality in Paving at NAPA’s annual convention.
The Larry H. Lemon Quality in Construction Award is one of the highest honors offered by NAPA. Garrett Paving Company won for work on the Sonlight Baptist Church parking lot in Colbert, GA.
The aging 52,000- square-foot parking lot at the Sonlight Baptist Church required patching and overlay, but with the church’s tight budget restraints, Garrett Paving Company had to control costs, while providing the very best quality workmanship. The two-day job required one day of cleaning and prep work to remove old pavement that was in need of some patch work. Garrett Paving then applied a layer of 12.5mm open-graded friction course mix to a few “alligatored” areas to prevent reflective cracking, Garrett said. The second day involved overlaying a 9.5mm surface mix.
Here’s a photo of the finished job by Garrett Paving:
