How To Select an Experienced Paving Contractor

If you are considering asphalt paving, you need to do some research before settling on a contractor. There are different paving needs, and the company you select should have experience specific to the details of your project. From paving a driveway to a commercial parking lot, use the following tips to select the most experienced pavers.

Check the Experience

When you are looking for a paving company, check on what kind of experience the company has as well as how long the company has been in business. There are different processes and challenges between commercial and residential projects, so pick a company whose experiences directly relate to the project. You also want a company that has been around for several years, as this experience will have introduced them to the different problems that could arise on the job site.

A company that has been around a while will want to see the job before making any promises or giving a quote. By visiting the site, the company will get a  better idea of the location, weather conditions, damage or repairs that could impact their asphalt paving options.

Confirm Their References

A reputable company will be able to provide several references from prior work done. There should be at least for you to call and check on the scope of the work delivered. The jobs should be like the one you are having done if you want to get an accurate picture of what to expect from the company. Ask questions like the following:

  • When was the project done?
  • What challenges came up during the process?
  • Did the company stay on budget?
  • Did the quality of the work reflect the cost?

Clarify Any Policies

Make sure you clarify any of their policies on warrantied work or going over the project’s budget. Check on the payment structure,  making sure your interests are covered.

Keeping these tips in mind can help you hire the best asphalt paving company. Spend time asking questions and researching possible options.
