Asphalt paving is essential for constructing and maintaining the parking lots, roads, driveways, and other paved surfaces that are vital to Ohio's homes, businesses, and infrastructure. Paved asphalt surfaces provide a safe, smooth, durable surface for vehicles and foot traffic. Asphalt paving is a cost-effective paving method that can be installed relatively quickly and provides excellent performance for many years with proper maintenance.

Property managers, business owners, homeowners, and government agencies across Ohio require reliable asphalt paving services for both new construction and maintenance of existing paved surfaces. Demand for asphalt paving in the state is significant, with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) reporting that it maintains over 43,000 lane miles of highways and roads, while Ohio's local governments are responsible for an additional 100,000+ miles of paved roadways.

High-quality asphalt paving by experienced professionals like the team at Geddis Paving & Excavating Inc. provides numerous benefits to Ohio communities. Well-paved roads improve driver safety and fuel efficiency, reduce vehicle wear and tear, and facilitate the efficient transportation of goods and people that is essential to the state economy. Smooth, well-maintained parking lots and driveways enhance property values, reduce liability risks, and contribute to a positive impression for businesses and homes.

Geddis Paving & Excavating Inc. serves clients throughout Ohio and has completed numerous high-profile asphalt paving projects. The company's experienced paving crews utilize a fleet of state-of-the-art paving equipment, including asphalt pavers, rollers, milling machines, and material transfer vehicles. Geddis Paving also operates its own asphalt plant, ensuring a reliable supply of high-quality paving mix for every project.

The asphalt paving process begins with proper preparation of the underlying surface, including grading, compacting, and repairing the subgrade as needed. Geddis Paving handles every step of site preparation to ensure a stable foundation for the new asphalt surface. The company's crews then use asphalt paving machines to apply, spread, and compact the hot asphalt mix in layers to achieve a strong, smooth surface. Proper rolling and compaction are critical to the performance and durability of the pavement.

In addition to new asphalt paving, Geddis provides asphalt resurfacing, patching, repair, sealcoating, and striping services to maintain existing paved surfaces. The company's expertise allows it to diagnose and address pavement issues to extend the life of parking lots and driveways.

"Proper ongoing maintenance is just as essential as quality installation when it comes to asphalt pavements," noted Ben Geddis. "We work closely with our clients to develop maintenance plans that fit their needs and budgets. Catching and repairing small issues early on prevents more extensive and expensive damage down the road."

Beyond its technical expertise, Geddis Paving & Excavating Inc. is known for its professionalism, reliability, and customer service. The Geddis team works closely with every client to understand their needs and provide tailored solutions. Geddis project managers maintain open lines of communication, provide regular progress updates, and are always available to address any questions or concerns.
