The most important thing to remember when deciding between driveway contractors is simple: all are not created equal. In fact, if you’re in the market for a driveway contractor you should be aware of the potential scams, poor work and overcharging happening everywhere. These are serious risks and concerns to consider before hiring a contractor.
How Do You Find Reliable Driveway Contractors?
If you’re going to pay to have your driveway redone, you want the best quality work, right? We understand that it can be difficult, though, to identify contractors of true quality. Here are some tips so that you can better find these contractors:
- Ask for addresses of past work that the contractor has done. They should be able to give you references dating back a few years. If someone does a good job, they should be proud of their work and eager to show you what you driveway will look like. You are about to spend several thousands of dollars on a new driveway: you should be able to pick and choose which references you want to call. Not a list of that contractors’ 5 best customers. Ask for a list of driveways they have completed if the past few years.
- Make sure to verify their credentials to ensure the contractor is licensed, bonded, insured and that they have workers’ compensation.
- Aside from asking the contractor for addresses of prior work they’ve done, do your own research. Seek testimonials online, ask your neighbors and see if any websites have rated them.
Make Sure your Contractor Is Reliable
As a note: because asphalt quickly cools once it’s put down, contractors must work fast. Therefore, make sure your contractors are sending large crews to work on the jobs so the driveway will stand the test of time. This is something less-experienced companies might not know of!
