Why It’s Essential to Choose the Right Paving Company

Investing in a new commercial pavement project is a big decision! A properly poured pavement project should last you decades, if you select the right pavement pouring company for the job. Like any major financial decision, you’ll want to ask around and do your research to ensure you are selecting the best company possible for the job! Here are a few recommended tips before hiring the right paving company for your project.

 

Right Paving Company

 

Is the Paving Company Insured?

This is a very important question to ensure you are hiring a reputable company. Beware of construction companies that submit bids well below other pavement companies. This could mean they are skipping out on insurance and possibly relying on your property insurance to pick up the bill, should an incident occur. Always ask for proof of insurance and follow up with the documentation provided to make sure the insurance is active and in good standing.

 

Look for the Right Equipment

A professional paving company who has been in business for years should be investing in the best technology and machinery to ensure the job is done right. Ask the potential company you are hiring for more information on the equipment they plan to use for the project. Also ask how many men and women they plan to have helping on the job. A typical job requires several workers. If a company is not planning to send out a full crew, this could affect the quality of the work. 

 

Ask for References

When the company has been in business for years, they are certain to have other businesses they’ve helped with pavement projects. Always ask for references before hiring a pavement company. Also request that the company provides other business references that have similar sized jobs to the project you are planning. 

 

What Materials Do They Plan to Use

This is another important question to ask. Not all asphalt materials are made the same! There are many different asphalt grades on the market and some use more recycled material than others. Ask the company to provide the names and types of material they plan to use on your project.
