To find an asphalt paving company, check the Better Business Bureau website, or use an online contractor search such as HomeAdvisor. Have a list of questions to ask the contractors after compiling a list of local companies.
The Better Business Bureau website is a good place to start when looking for an asphalt paving company. It only lists accredited businesses and also has the bonus of including reviews, ratings and complaints for each company. To find asphalt paving companies, select the city, then click on Accredited Business Directory. Find the Paving Contractors category, and click on it. This gives a list of all paving contractors located in that city, with more information about each business.
Another option for locating an asphalt paving company is by using a contractor locator such as the HomeAdvisor locator. To use this tool, enter the ZIP code, the type of area that needs asphalt, the existing surface and other pertinent details. The results given include all contractors within the vicinity that provide these unique services. At this point, it is up to the homeowner to choose the right contractor.
After compiling a list of possible contractors, contact and interview them. Don’t just choose the first one that is available or the one with the cheapest prices. Ask about their time schedule, contracts, licensing and experience and insurance. Make sure they are insured, and look at reviews of the contractor.
