Frequently Asked Questions

Use our Buyer’s Guide to help you select and hire a paving company. We didn’t write it—a customer did! You’ll learn how to protect yourself by asking the hard questions that some outfits would rather not answer.

  • Make sure the contractor is local. Local businesses are more accountable;
  • Research the contractor. BBB ratings, Yelp, star ratings and testimonials;
  • Get an estimate. Get everything in writing. Learn what “After Compaction” means;
  • Ask questions. Who is doing the actual paving? Them, or somebody else?
