When you want asphalt driveway repair work done don’t just accept any old contractor fresh off the street. Investigate, ask several contractors for quotes. Make sure they are all quoting on the same thing.
And check in the phone book to see if these asphalt paving contractors have fixed addresses. Are they well established and do they have a track record?
Ask for and check references. Don’t just take their word for it that they are good. Check for yourself. Personally.
Don’t let what happened to Leslie Williams and his wife happen to you. By the sounds of it Mr. Williams had almost done everything right in selecting a contractor. He had received 3 quotes, checked his phone book and opted for the Paving Contractor who said he had 15 years’ experience.
It doesn’t sound like Mr. Williams checked any further. If he had he would have found this contractor was no longer living in the area and if he had asked for references he may well have decided not to go with this particular concern.
Be as thorough as possible when choosing an asphalt paving contractor. Try and cover every angle and hopefully what happened to him will not happen to you.
