Learn how asphalt driveway installation SHOULD be done!

Hi! I'm Patrick Mattingley. I've been working in the driveway business for well over a decade. I love the driveway business. Driveways are the first thing people see when they pull up to your home. I've looked at thousands of driveways since I started back in the 90's. Concrete driveways, asphalt driveways, interlocking paver driveways... even gravel driveways. I've seen some of the most beautiful driveways and I've seen of the worst driveways you could imagine! I started AllAboutDriveways.com because I got sick and tired of seeing people get ripped off by common driveway paving scams and gypsy asphalt scammers. It frustrated me to see people spend their hard earned money on asphalt driveway paving, sometimes to the tune of several thousands of dollars, only to get ripped off by some fly by night asphalt paving contractor.

The kicker for me was meeting an older retired couple who had saved their money their entire lives to have their rural driveway paved. I gave them an estimate and immediately they said "Wow! You're twice as high as the other asphalt paving contractor that we have an estimate from." Having experience in the driveway business, I knew right away, they we're in for a taking. I tried emphatically to warn them about the common driveway paving scams as well as the common gypsy paving scams to no avail. I remember them saying to me. "At our age, it's worth the risk for half the cost!"

Fast forward a couple of months and I get a phone call from the same couple: "Patrick, can you please come and look at our driveway, there's something wrong with it. It's cracking everywhere."

I knew exactly what it was... I didn't have to come and look at it. But I did. I went and met with them and it just broke my heart to see them so sad and upset. I thought "This could be MY parents!" They we're so upset that they didn't listen to me. They're asphalt driveway was beyond repair. It was a terrible mess. Unfortunately, not only did they pay the scum bag, fly by night asphalt driveway contractor for his horrible work, but had they decided to have us install it the right way, they would have had to pay to have that mess removed AND re-installed properly which was way more money than my original bid. Sadly, they couldn't afford it. They we're taken by a low life scammer who only cared about filling his pockets with their hard earned money. It was then that I decided I was going to do something... that I had to figure out a way to help homeowners keep from getting ripped off by these fly by night contractors. That's when I thought of the AllAboutDriveways.com concept.
