All American Asphalt


Ever since All American Asphalt has been tearing up Fair Oaks Avenue in South Pasadena, several of us pointed out that the work crews didn't look very professional, and some of the work looked shoddy.  Today we bring you the reinstallation of the newspaper stands in front of Starbucks/Wells Fargo at Fair Oaks and El Centro.  It seems that one of the stands is facing the wrong way.  Yes, folks, the stand in the lower right opens out to the street, as you can see by the way we propped the door open.  Shoddy, unprofessional?  Whatever could we have been thinking?

Too bad they took away the "Sandblasting" sign before we could take a picture of it.  It looked like something a 7-year old would have done, and the writing was barely large enough to see.

Oh man.

I wonder what the newspaper stands look like up the street in front of the cell phone place. (Verizon? I forget which carrier.) When I took pictures a month ago, they looked like they'd been bombed. Or mowed over by a truck.

That's what you get when you award the contract to the lowest bidder.

It wasn't "lowest bidder," it was "best fit."

I live in Eagle's Knoll in Big Bear Lake CA. We used Matich Construction who sub-contracted to All American Asphalt for the underlayment or Petromat for our asphalt repaving. Within 6 months, we had over 90 cracks in a small community of 90 homes. BrianA at All American said he would take a look. That was in January and then he didn't return calls or emails. Is this what "professionalism" is today?
