Are you looking for a reputable paving contractor, but are unsure which one to choose?!
There are several things that you should keep in mind when researching, and ultimately selecting a contractor to lay, repair, or completely redo the paving of your home or business. The following guidelines apply whether you wish to have the work done on your driveway, walkway, or both:
Ask your contractor what grade of materials will be used on your paving job. There’s no use using materials that are of poor quality, meaning that you will have to get your paving repaired just a short while after it has been laid. It is important to ensure that the paving is suitable for its purpose. For example, if you have a heavy vehicle such an SUV, RV, caravan, or truck, the paving should be able to support the weight effortlessly. On the other hand, there’s not point paying for heavy-duty paving when the heaviest vehicle on the paving will be a bicycle.
- Ensure that the materials used by the contractor fulfil all local environmental regulations. It would be extremely costly if you had to have your new or newly-refurbished paving torn up at your own cost because the materials used were not environmentally-friendly.
- Determine with your contractor in advance whether the surface that requires the paving should have full-depth asphalt or only overlay asphalt applied to it.
- Confirm with the contractor that any workers on site, as well as the machinery used to work on your property’s paving job have the necessary permits, licences and insurance. The insurance should not only cover the contractor’s assets, such as machinery, but also in the event that damage is caused to your paving, or even if the worksite results in an unfortunate accident, either to your family, colleagues, the contractor’s workers, or members of the public.
- Always verify online that the contractor has a good reputation. This can be found by visiting sites such as Yelp, Better Business Bureau (BBB), or on the contractor’s social media pages. Not all contractors have an online presence, so ask the contractor for contact details of recent clients, to whom you can enquire directly.
It is important to note that failing to use a reputable paving contractor can result in costing you a substantial amount of money, and become a significant waste of your time, while you undo and solve work done by a contractor who wasn’t up to your job. This is why it is essential that you choose the right contractor for your paving job from the beginning.
