How to Choose a Paving Contractor

Whether you’re constructing a new driveway, updating your existing one or resurfacing an asphalt surface, it is important to choose a quality contractor. The right paving contractor can ensure a smooth, water-resistant, and tight surface that will last for years to come. While many projects around the house are DIY-appropriate, paving is not one of them. It requires a great deal of knowledge and understanding of zoning regulations, building codes, and construction materials to execute properly. For this reason, paving an asphalt driveway should always be left to a licensed asphalt contractor. Before hiring a paving contractor, it is best to ask them some key questions about their services and experience.

A reputable paving contractor should be more than happy to answer your questions. They should also be willing to show you a portfolio of previous work and be able to provide you with references from past clients. This is a good way to gauge their level of customer service and determine if they are the right fit for your project.

Another important question to ask is if they offer a warranty on their work. This will give you peace of mind, knowing that if something goes wrong with your project, they will fix it at no additional cost. It is also a good idea to ask about their maintenance programs and any recommendations they have for keeping your paved surface in top condition.

If a company is hesitant to answer any of your questions or doesn’t have a website or social media presence, this may be a red flag. A reputable company will be more than happy to answer all your questions and will have a comprehensive and well-established website that describes the scope of their work and provides testimonials and contact information.

It is also a good idea to meet the paving contractor in person before having any work done. This will help you establish a rapport and create an open line of communication that will benefit both parties. Additionally, many contractors will make it a priority to schedule appointments at times that are convenient for their customers so you can have the opportunity to meet with them at your convenience.

A quality paving contractor will be experienced in the installation and construction of a variety of different driveway material types. They should be able to offer suggestions on what would be the best choice for your particular property based on the weather conditions, soil type and other factors. Additionally, a good paving contractor will have the expertise to correctly grade and drain your driveway for maximum longevity.

In addition to laying your asphalt driveway, a professional paving contractor will also install a crushed gravel (hardcore) base and a proper subgrade to ensure that your driveway is as sturdy as possible for years to come. They should also be able to advise you on the best drainage solutions for your property, such as installing a dry well if necessary. Contact Paddys Paving today!
