Things to Look for in a Paving Contractor

To help you find the most suitable company for your paving project, we’ve put together a list of things to consider when shopping for a paving contractor:


  • You should get at least 3 quotes.
  • Call the Better Business Bureau to be sure you’re dealing with a reputable company.
  • Get the price and exactly what work the contractor is going to perform, in writing.
  • Be aware that a 6” to 8” of well-compacted aggregate or equivalent is necessary for a well-constructed, long lasting driveway.
  • While the thickness of the asphalt is important, it is not as important as a solid base. A compacted thickness of 2” is the standard for vehicle traffic.
  • Don’t be misled by the size of the roller to be used. Weight is important, but the timing of rolling the asphalt as the material cools is more important for a well-paved driveway. Our rollers range from a small 1-ton to commercial vibratory drum types.
  • You should have your driveway constructed the way you want, not the way that is easiest for the contractor. Ask the contractor for their advice, but in the end, it’s your decision.
  • Don’t hesitate to ask the contractor about other projects they have completed in your area, and then drive by those projects to take a look.
  • Be aware of the price quoted. If one price is considerably lower than the rest, they may be cutting corners that could end up costing you a lot more in the long run.
  • Make sure you understand what’s contained in each quote. There may be differences in materials or equipment that affects the quoted price.
  • Don’t hesitate to ask questions. The contractor should be willing to help you understand what’s involved in the process.
