Asphalt Paving 101: How to Hire a Professional Paving Company

Choosing a paving company for your driveway or parking lot can be a bit overwhelming. There are so many options that it can be difficult to figure out where to begin. And you don’t just want any old paving contractors – you want a company you can trust to do the best job possible. So we’ve put together a list of tips to help make your decision a little easier. Check them out:

1        Shop around. Don’t just pick the first paving company that comes up in your search. Take the advice of Smokey Robinson’s mama and shop around. Get proposals from several different contractors before making your decision, then compare them. You should also make sure that all of the companies will be using the same type and quantity of asphalt when you’re comparing prices.

2        Get out of the house. There’s no better way to verify that a company does quality work than to use your own two eyes. Ask your potential contractors about other jobs they’ve done, and then go to the sites to see for yourself. Is the asphalt smooth and even? Do the owners rave about the wonderful asphalt resurfacing service they received? If so, you’re good to go.

3        Beware of scammers. One of the biggest paving scams is the old “leftover materials” trick. If someone rings your doorbell and claims to be a “traveling contractor” who can pave your driveway with material left over from another job, just say no. The convenience is tempting, but it’s almost always a scam, and you’ll spend even more money fixing the shoddy job. You should seek out your contractor, not the other way around.

With these tips in hand, the daunting task of choosing a paving company should become a little easier. If you’re in Atlanta, Prime Paving Contractors is the no-brainer choice. Call us for a quote today.
