As a homeowner, you have many options when choosing an asphalt paving contractor. However, with all the options that you can find out there, how do you make the best choice?
Keep these 4 considerations in mind as you narrow your selection.
Asking your potential asphalt paving contractor about their experience is a good start. Do they regularly complete projects that are similar in size to yours? What type of methods do they use in priming your driveway, applying the asphalt, and finishing the edges of your driveway? A reputable contractor will take the time to explain the methods and answer all questions. At Goode Paving, Inc., we meet with each of our client’s and personally walk them through our process, answering all questions along the way.
Proof of Insurance
It is important for a business to carry liability and workman’s compensation insurance to protect you while they are performing work on your property.
What warranty, if any, does the asphalt paving contractor provide? What does it cover and for how long? Be sure to know what the contractor will cover now in order to avoid future hassle and confusion if an issue does surface.
Knowing how many projects the contractor is currently managing is a good idea before signing a contract. An asphalt paving contractor who has many jobs in front of you may over-promise a completion date and you coul d find yourself waiting longer than expected. Weather can always play a part in unexpected delays, so discussing the timeline in advance is helpful to keep an open line of communication between you and the contractor.
