To choose a reliable paving company, look into each company's ratings and reviews, and ask for recommendations. Avoid common red flags, such as companies approaching the homeowner first or wanting cash as payment.
A good paving contractor does not attempt to sell its services door-to-door. Do not hire a paving company that approaches the door, claiming to want to re-pave the driveway. Instead, look for paving companies that are listed in the local chamber of commerce and get good reviews. Ask questions about the services provided, and be sure the company has a permanent location. Also ensure that all important details of the job are in writing before the work begins.
