Need new asphalt?

Be careful of deals that sound too good to be true.

The Weld County District Attorney’s Office issued a warning this week about traveling asphalt companies moving into the area.

"Most recently, a Weld County resident viewed an ad on Facebook posted from an asphalt company advertising that they were 'in the area with left over asphalt' at a reduced price," the Weld County Sheriff's Office said.

The resident told deputies the quoted price of $7,000 went up exponentially and the quality of the asphalt was very poor.

The Colorado Asphalt Pavement Association warns that if an asphalt company claims they have “left over asphalt,” there's no such thing because hot mix asphalt cools too quickly.
