Asphalt driveways are amazing! Especially when they are installed correctly. They boost property value, last for ages, and are easy to maintain. Entrusting something as important as your driveway to a reputable company is essential. Which is why we’ve put together a few things to consider when hiring a paving company that goes beyond their marketing.
Experience When Hiring A Paving Company Is Paramount!
One of the most important things to look for when hiring an asphalt paving contractor is previous experience in your local area. If they have paved roads or driveways similar to yours, their techniques will likely work out well for you. If the asphalt paving contractors have little or no experience paving roads in your area, hiring them could spell disaster for you later on.
Check for Insurance Coverage And Licensing
If there’s an accident that happens on your property, the insurance that the contractor has will cover any damage or injuries. This is why ensuring your paving company has their own insurance coverage is so important! When hiring a paving company, you should make sure that they have general liability, Worker’s Compensation, and an Umbrella policy.
Word of mouth is one of the most powerful tools we have! Ask your contractor for references by current and previous customers. You can ask these customers how they feel about the quality of the contractor’s work, how well they’ve stuck to the budget and the timeline that they set for their projects, and the overall quality of their customer service. Don’t discount asking around town to find out who your colleagues, neighbors, and family members trust for paving projects. They may just help you discover new possibilities!
Does The Paving Company Have Sufficient Equipment and Crew Size?
Does the contractor that you’re getting ready to hire have a large enough crew size? Depending on the size of the job that you’re hiring them for, the average paving company has a crew of 5 to 8 employees. And what about the equipment? If the contractor is under equipped and/or understaffed, it can not only delay the project, but even have an impact on the quality of the paving.
