Have you seen the latest mess Shatley has made? Look at the side dressing on the Baldwin part of the new road. An absolute muddy mess. I've never seen anyone use pure dirt to side dress new pavement. Most side dressing is just short of crusher run material. A d**n mess.

Are your sure that Shatley did the work? It is also usually spec out in the plans what is and isn't acceptable for such work. I'm sure if it didn't meet the specs the DOT would have put a stop to it. I have worked on many roads in our area and have seen dirt, gravel or a mixture of both used to shoulder the road. Maymead has even used crushed concrete along 421.

Well whoever is responsible for these milled out spots did a pitiful job. I don't care whether it was Shatley, Vannoy, Maymead, whoever. It's pitiful, even for this podunk county

Looks like clodhopper has shut down all the excuses and lies. Not a word since his post.

Thank you, Clod!

My employer owns their own milling machines and also subs some of our milling out to Delta and Donegal. When we have a joint that has to be left, we either have the milling machine zero it out on the ends or if the cut is more than 1 1/2 we do a asphalt wedge to ease the transition...

Keep passing the buck and blaming someone else. And the taxpayers continue to get screwed.

Jimbob, you didn’t research anything. Stop lying.

As for their quality and price, many people are perfectly happy driving a lightly used honda all their life because they’ve never driven a BMW. You are happy with what Shatley did because you don’t know better

3rd. All Shatley Paving was doing was putting in paper joints to make the transition a little smoother until the final layer of asphalt is laid down.

The bump issue isn't about what paving company did it. It's the fact that a lot of people have damaged their vehicles because of the milled out asphalt everything from broken belts in tires, busted shocks, struts, and more. I've heard of some vehicles having over a thousand dollars damage. The one responsible for this is DOT but if you report it to them they just pass it off to Vannoy Construction and someone from their office may call you and tell you they are not the ones that did it. They didn't do the milling leaving these bumps in the road for over a week their sub did Maynard but they only did what they were told to do by DOT so don't blame them either. Go for DOT it's their road and they call the shots and should be held responsible for all these vehicle repairs.

So pointman...you are not interested in honesty and integrity, only your agenda (fueled by jealously).

Suggestion for anyone else who IS honestly interested in the facts and doesn't have an agenda: Call Vannoy/Maymead tomorrow and find out who is responsible for the "bump" in the road and the timeline associated with said "bump".

Spoiler alert: I actually did my research and found out that Shatley Paving is NOT responsible.

Full Disclosure: I am a former, very satisfied customer of Shatley Paving. They were highly recommended to me due to the quality of their work and their fee was reasonable. When I saw this thread, I was surprised and decided to see what the facts were. It took a couple of hours all in all and several phone calls along with being transferred to several different people, but I recommend it to anyone interested in FACTS.

Again, I do NOT work for any paving company. Most regular posters on this site know my background. My observations come from common sense and basic engineering good practices. I favor no paving contractor. Clearly, you cannot boast the same. Fix your mess!


Posted 9:02 pm, 08/06/2018

pointman, in the interest of transparency and honesty, why don't you tell everyone else here which paving company you work for? I know. Jealously is the cancer of life. Fix your mess and you may get more business.

And btw, Adolf Hitler was held as “Man of the Year”, and we all know how that played out. Fix your mess!


Posted 8:40 pm, 08/06/2018

It’s no joke that the paving is substandard and taxpayers demand better. Vote or no vote, milling machine or no, Shatley does the paving in a substandard way. Even if what you contend is true, a truly respectable company would not allow their name to be associated with such shameful practices. Fix this mess!

I'm gald fins brought to light about the paving company of the year. Voted on by the good people of Ashe. I dont see how they could lose when the local radio station runs their ads and runs the voting for one company. What a joke.

1- DELTA was contracted by Maymead to mill the butt joints (NOT Shatley)

2- Shatley does NOT even own/lease a milling machine

3- Shatley Paving was awarded THE PAVING COMPANY OF THE YEAR FOR 2017-2018

4- Shatley Paving has earned an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau

Note: all of the above can be easily verified by anyone interested in the truth

The more the Shatley flunked expound, the more the smoke screen is obvious. By your own admissions Shatley does the paving.... then get on with it in an engineering acceptable method. The unacceptable joints are self evident that a pi$$ poor job has been done. Stop making excuses and fix your mess!
