It can be challenging to decide on an asphalt paving company for your commercial or residential paving job. Knowing what separates one company from another can be difficult. However, the outcome and appearance of your paving project will be determined by which company you use. That means it’s important that you pick a good contractor. Thankfully there are a few tips that will help you pick out a quality paving company that can get the job done right and stands by its work. Here’s how to choose an asphalt paving company.
One thing you absolutely need to look for in an asphalt paving company is their project history. If their website doesn’t have pictures of past completed projects, they may be trying to hide something. Always ask to see examples of their work, and if possible, drive by a completed project and inspect it in person.
Saving a couple of bucks on a new, or inexperienced asphalt paving company rarely pays off. Poor work of low quality will chip away, crack, and need to be replaced quickly. Quality work, on the other hand, will last for years and continue looking great after use. When it comes to asphalt paving, experience is a must.
Just as is true with any contractor, your asphalt paving company should be appropriately licensed for their work. Again, it may be tempting to choose a cheaper contractor that doesn’t have all of the necessary licensing, but this often costs more in the long run.
Asphalt paving companies should have and show you all of the necessary licensing and insurance information before they even begin the project. Otherwise, you could be held financially liable for poor work, damage to your property, or even employee injury. Always take time to verify the licensing of any company when you choose an asphalt paving company.
As pollution and other hazards continue to negatively impact the planet, it’s more important than ever to consider environmental conservation. Consider looking for an asphalt paving company that is environmentally friendly. Many asphalt paving contractors have chosen to reduce their impact on the earth by recycling your old asphalt or using warm-mix asphalt which can help reduce your project’s carbon footprint.
