Biondi Paving and Engineering is always dedicated to making sure your paving project is completed with excellence. Biondi Paving and Engineering prides itself in being able to bring quality work every single day, every week and every month. If you are looking for paving companies, then let our expertise to help you find the perfect company to handle your paving needs. With so much variety in paving stones and asphalt to choose from, no matter what your needs may be, they will have exactly what you need to get the job done right.
When it comes to paving, many people make the mistake of going to a paving company that handles both concrete and asphalt surfaces. Although this may be fine for some jobs, it can often end up being more costly. In order to truly reduce costs, the best thing to do is to go with a paving contractor that only deals with one specific material. By only putting your trust in a paving contractor that only deals with asphalt surfaces, you will receive only the best results, with less risk of damage to your concrete or asphalt surface.
You also want your paving contractor to be fully insured and bonded. Professional commercial paving companies are required to be fully insured against any damages to their property and liability issues. While working on a commercial property, there is always a chance that something could happen. A good paving company is fully insured against the possibility of any damages that may occur on any job. If damage occurs, the company will be liable for the repair.
Professional paving companies are also required by law to be bonded, which verifies that the contractor is who he says he is. Bonding ensures that you are dealing with a legitimate business and that you will not be ripped off. Any negligence on the part of the company will result in legal action. Remember, anything you cover on your paving job, will also be taken care of by the bonded asphalt paving contractor.
Finally, you should always make sure that your paving company and the workers on the job are properly trained and licensed. Not having your paving contractor properly trained could end up costing you money. A licensed asphalt paving contractor should have passed all state licensing exams before being allowed to work on a residential or commercial property. Training is always best left to the experts so that you don’t end up with faulty work that you have to replace.
Once you find a reputable, bonded professional paving company, you need to always keep an eye out for signs of trouble. Things like cracked parking lots, potholes, uneven sidewalks, and other problems should be tended to right away. It’s always preferable to hire a local contractor over an international one. The traffic in your area can make it difficult for a foreign contractor to do a professional job. They may not be familiar with the area and may even arrive late sometimes, which could cause problems as your neighbors may become annoyed.
It’s also important that you check out their years of experience and training. No matter how qualified they are, if they haven’t been working in your area for a while, chances are they’re not as experienced as a new inexperienced paving company. Experience shows leadership. A qualified paving company will show leadership by scheduling an appointment with you for a walk through, which includes a free quote. They should then show you where their work is located and show you the benefits of their services. If they aren’t willing to do this, you should probably go with another experienced paving company that can give you a comprehensive quote on their services.
Most importantly, you should only work with asphalt paving companies that are willing to take on a large volume of work. If they want a quick job and won’t spend the time to discuss details with you, they are not the right company for you. You should also inquire about whether or not they have any paving permits and check to see if they are required to have liability insurance. If a contractor does not provide you with these things and you think that you might be at risk, you should look for another paving company.
About West Sacramento
West Sacramento (also known as West Sac) is a city in Yolo County, California, United States. The city is separated from Sacramento by the Sacramento River, which also separates Sacramento and Yolo counties. It is a fast-growing community; the population was 48,744 at the 2010 census, up from 31,615 at the 2000 census. The traditional industrial center of the region since the Gold Rush era, West Sacramento is home to a diverse economy and is one of the area's top four employment centers.
The United States Conference of Mayors named West Sacramento as the Most Livable City in America in 2014 in the category of cities with fewer than 100,000 residents.
West Sacramento is part of the Sacramento–Arden Arcade–Roseville Metropolitan Statistical Area which has a population (2000) of approximately 1,796,857 (July 1, 2016 estimate placed the population at 2,296,418). Major industries to the region include agriculture, government, and transportation.
In 1844, John Schwartz, a Flemish traveler, was the first Euro-American to permanently settle in the area of West Sacramento, which at that time was part of Mexico. He built a shack on the west bank of the Sacramento River six miles (10 km) south of its connection with the American River. John, with the help of his brother George, founded a salmon fishery along the river. In addition to the fishery, they also found the soil to be fertile and began farming and raising livestock. The announcement of the discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848 brought a multitude of miners to the region. This also coincided with the end of the Mexican–American War.
In 1846, a man named James McDowell bought 600 acres (240 ha) from John Schwartz. With his wife, Margaret, and their three daughters, McDowell settled in the area we know today as Broderick. The McDowell family experienced first-hand the violence that the gold rush era brought with it. In May 1849, James McDowell was shot and killed in a barroom argument that he had supposedly started. With the loss of the sole supporter of the McDowell family, Margaret needed to find a way to provide for her family.
In October 1849, Margaret hired a land surveyor to map out 160 acres (65 ha), which was then divided into forty one blocks. She sold individual lots within this platted area which she named the "Town of Washington". The first lot was sold to August W. Kaye for $500. During its first ten years, the rural Town of Washington went through a significant increase in business development and shipping activity. One of the first businesses to be established in the town was the California Steam Navigation Company, which was attracted to the area in 1859 by how close the Sacramento River is to it. Other businesses in early Washington included hotels, saloons, and restaurants catering to the needs of people passing through. Many of the travelers making the treacherous journey through the marshlands on their way to Sacramento were appreciative of the rest stop at the Town of Washington.
While Sacramento began to urbanize on the other side of the river, early West Sacramento found its hand at agricultural development. Salmon, sturgeon, catfish, eel, crayfish, and clams proved to be lucrative in this region as fisherman soon found. The river settlement was flourishing, stocking fish markets not only in Sacramento, but in San Francisco as well. In addition, the rich soil of the valley produced abundant crops of corn, melons, cucumbers, and sweet potatoes. The dairy industry also established roots in West Sacramento around this time.
One of the area's most well known dairy farmers was Mike Bryte. Bryte came to California in 1849 to try his hand at gold mining. He didn't make a fortune in gold, but was able to purchase a dairy farm with his findings. When the California Steam Navigation Company came to Washington, Bryte used the steamships to carry his dairy products to various markets within the region. Profits from this allowed Bryte to expand his holdings. Bryte was able to own several thousand acres of land in the area to farm on, as well as raise his many livestock on. Mike Bryte's influence in the community was marked by his election to the Yolo County Board of Supervisors and later as sheriff. During the 20th century, Mike Bryte's property was divided and became known as the community of Bryte.
In time, the region began to develop. The Town of Washington was renamed Broderick in honor of U. S. Senator David C. Broderick. After 1900, the three communities known as Bryte, Broderick, and West Sacramento were cumulatively known as "East Yolo".
From 1900 to 1920, the population of this area doubled from 1,398 to 2,638. The West Sacramento post office opened in 1915.
These communities officially incorporated as the City of West Sacramento in 1987.
In June 1963, the Port of Sacramento was opened to deep sea traffic with the completion of the Sacramento Deep Water Ship Channel. The project had been authorized by Congress in 1946 and construction commenced in 1949 on the west side of the river. It has since been renamed The Port of West Sacramento. The Port's main imports include cement and exports include rice.
West Sacramento is located at 38°34′50″N 121°31′49″W / 38.58056°N 121.53028°W.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 22.8 square miles (59 km), of which, 21.4 square miles (55 km2) of it is land and 1.4 square miles (3.6 km) of it (6.22%) is water.
West Sacramento, which lies in Yolo County, is separated from the city of Sacramento and Sacramento County by the Sacramento River. West Sacramento, incorporated in 1987, consists of three communities that were originally distinct towns, Broderick, Bryte, and West Sacramento (originally just the community north of the port canal and south of the railroads), as well as the Southport area.
Southport, which comprises about half of the city's land area, originally consisted of rural homesteads and small neighborhoods in Arlington Oaks and Linden, but now has a considerable population that resulted from housing booms in the early 1990s and the early 2000s, adding new neighborhoods in Bridgeway, Gateway, River Ranch, and Newport.
According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, West Sacramento has a hot-summer Mediterranean climate, abbreviated "Csa" on climate maps.
In March 2006, IKEA opened a store in West Sacramento near Reed Avenue and Interstate 80 in the Riverpoint Shopping Center. On November 15, 2007, a Home Depot opened in the Riverpoint Shopping Center, next to IKEA. Target opened a new store at the Southport Shopping Center directly across from Nugget Market, an upscale grocery store headquartered in Woodland, California. A Lowe's Home Improvement Center just west of Target, behind Arlington Oaks was completed in February 2008. West Sacramento's premiere businesses include Tony's Fine Foods/UNFI, UPS, Hunter Douglas, Beckman Coulter, FedEX, Holtman of California and Bayer Crop Sciences.
