Success Stories: A Pretty Patch and Seal in Concord, CA

Customer: Homeowners Management Company
Property Manager: Laura Ravazza
Property: Dana Terrace, Concord, California
Project: Patch and seal
Dates: July 6, 2016 (paving); July 27, 2016 (crack seal/coat)

We had the pleasure this summer of working on yet another successful paving project with Project Manager Laura Ravazzo, of Home Owners Management Company. Laura has been a long-time client of Black Diamond’s and has stuck with us through her employment at three different management companies. Whenever any of her properties needs some TLC, she’s quick to call Senior Black Diamond Project Consultant Mike Bowbeer for his expert feedback.

This time around was no exception. Shortly after he got the run-down from Laura, Mike headed out to the property and walked around with the HOA Board President. She pointed out her various concerns, and after taking into consideration the age and condition of the pavement, he made his recommendations. This particular property will eventually need a complete replacement, but in the meantime, a patch and crack seal should get them through the next five years with no trouble—plenty of time to save up for the full shebang.

The president of the Board was pleased with what Mike had to say, so he whipped up a proposal, the Board approved it, and on July 6th, we got to work. Notifications were handed out to residents the week prior, “No Parking” signs were installed, and our crew got to work. We completed the paving that day and came back on the 27th to finish the job with a crack seal and sealcoat. It’s not unusual, in our line of work, to encounter minor issues throughout the process, but this job went just as smoothly as the asphalt we laid. Everyone was pleased with how the job turned out, and we came away from the project with the pride of a job well done.

“I have worked very closely with Mike Bowbeer on several asphalt projects and I can truly say he is a leader in the industry!! The entire crew is very courteous to all of my owners and help in any way that they can. The work always comes out fantastic, it’s like a face lift for our properties. If you are in the market to get your parking lot done I STRONGLY recommend Black Diamond Paving and Mike Bowbeer!!”
