Asphalt Restoration Technology Systems

Diamond Level Winner—Asphalt and Paving Services
(Winner 2023 and nine previous RCA wins)

     When I (Connie Lorenz) received the email this year telling me that we had won the Readers’ Choice Award again, I was thrilled! When I received the news, as chance would have it, I was in the middle of cleaning up my office and getting it ready for the new year, dusting off and stacking my previous years’ plaques; and much to my surprise, I counted nine of them! Realizing this was the tenth year that the RCA have been around and that we have been winners ALL 10 years makes us quite proud to be the recipients but even prouder to know that we have such an amazing support system like FLCAJ and its readers!

     For those of you who don’t know, I am also an asphalt consultant who oversees milling and paving projects across the state. I spent 42 weeks in hotels in 2022 alone! Not only do I oversee new milling and paving projects, but also I am asked to come in and inspect bad paving projects, or at least those that clients think are bad.

     I was returning from one of these “bad paving projects” in St. Petersburg when I received a phone call from one of my clients for whom we had just completed some asphalt repairs, sealing, and striping. She wanted to reach out to me personally to share that in her role as a project manager who has overseen many, many crews, from landscaping to underground utilities and from roofing to roadways, she had never met a more professional team than mine, starting from her initial phone call to us to her final invoice; and even better, she LOVED my logo!

     There are so many times we will reach out to complain to a company about how angry or upset we were with their team, their product, or their performance, but how many of us reach out to say, “Excellent job!” or, “You hit our project out of the park!”? This is why I am so grateful to FLCAJ for offering the opportunity for vendors and contractors to have a place where we can receive recognition from you, their readers! Receiving this award is one of our greatest accomplishments, and “thank you” for believing in us 10 years strong! We think you’re spectacular, too!
