Contractor Costs and Road Plate Troubles
Now add the labor costs of applying cold patch plus the labor costs of removing and reapplying cold mix every time a plate needs to be moved.
You’ll quickly realize you’re spending way too much money on a product that was never manufactured, designed or intended to be a road plate securing device.
How Many Complaints From The City Or General Public Did You Receive Last Year About Your Steel Road Plates?
We bet the most common ones were:
The plate shifting
Motorcyclists or bicyclists wrecking due to cold mix build up on the steel plate
Getting cold mix “goop” on their car
Having a messy work area
Complaints are worrisome, time consuming and very frustrating.
The problem contractors have always faced is that there has never been an alternative to cold mix. It has always been the way every contractor, from generation to generation, has secured steel road construction plates. But cold mix was never manufactured, designed or intended to be a road plate securing device.
