You’d like to have a new paved driveway, walkway, or parking lot. But you want to make sure the job gets done right the first time. Fixing mistakes made in haste can be costlier than laying down the surface correctly from the start.
How do you find the right paving professional for the job?
Consider a few tips before you sign any contracts.
Be Wary of Last-Minute “Specials”
Some paving contractors will show up in a neighborhood with materials “leftover” from another job. They’ll offer to do your driveway at a generously discounted rate just to use up the material they have.
This may sound like a good deal, but it doesn’t allow you sufficient time to plan and verify the credentials of the paving company. By accepting such unexpected offers, you also run the risk of getting a slipshod paving job, which the company doesn’t take the responsibility to fix. You’re better off doing some investigating in advance so that you know what to expect.
Do Your Research
Ask family and friends about paving companies they’ve used. Do some research on the reputation of a particular company before calling them for a quote. When communicating with a potential company, don’t just ask about the estimated price. Check that they have the necessary licenses and insurance, too.
Go ahead and ask questions about anything you’re not sure of. After all, a paved surface is a long-term investment and your home or business deserves the highest quality. A good paving contractor will make sure you understand all the details of the project before you agree to anything.
