Deciding to hire a paving contractor for your sitework, driveway, or heavy construction project can seem like a daunting task. But, like any other big job, all it takes is putting one foot in front of the other before you’re done.
And the best first foot to put forward is reaching out and asking a few choice questions. So join us, as we break down four of the most important questions to ask your paving contractor before work starts on your next project.
How Long Have They Actually Been Doing Business For?
One of the first questions you’ll want to ask any service provider you work with, let alone a building contractor, is also one of the most obvious: “How long have you been in the industry?”
How long has your contractor been doing business for? More specifically, have they been paving parking lots for the entire time they’ve been open? An experienced company with a great track record is worth a thousand cheap options from less experienced companies. Insist on the best experience you can get for your money.
Do They Offer A Variety Of Services?
What you’ll find with many paving contractors is that they actually specialize in a wide range of services, all of which are available to their customers. These services may include:
- parking lot repair
- asphalt seal coatings
- concrete resurfacing
- striping services
Where companies offer various paving services, ask them for better insights into their packages to help you choose the best material for your unique project.
Can You Speak To Any Previous Clients?
The sad part about business is that any company can tell you anything if it will help them close the sale. Before choosing a paving contractor, you’ll want to review their past work. And the best way to do this is to speak to a previous client or referral who’s had similar work done. Barring that, at least ask to see some customer reviews and requesting a project portfolio so you can actually see their finished project.
Where Do They Operate?
At the very least, your contractor should work and operate in your area so they are available for consistent work and there are no last minute problems. This is another deciding factor in whether a paving company is the right choice for you. Paving companies that focus on a region too far away from you will generally offer higher quality services to those areas than to yours. They’ll also have further to drive to get to you, which can be a problem.
