"In the Grand Rapids area alone, we've applied approximately three-quarters of million square yards of surface material, and 550,000 square yards of that has been our patented Black Mat emulsion," Terry adds. "The Black Mat really provides a nice finish, especially in residential areas. It resists scuffing and residents like the dark grey color.
"Kent County Road Commission and Terry Asphalt Materials have worked together for many years to utilize the most cost-effective systems and materials for each pavement condition," Terry adds. "Kent County has done an exceptional job of preparing the pavements prior to applying chip seal and micro-surfacing treatments. These two systems combined are maximizing taxpayer dollars by extending the life of the pavements for a nominal cost compared to other paving systems."
