You don’t hire a contractor to do major work around your home every day. You probably don’t even do it once a year! Because of this, you have a lot of questions. That is totally understandable! A reputable company will be happy to answer your questions, because they will feel confident in the answers they’re going to give you.

Hiring the right asphalt paving contractor can make all the difference when it comes to project quality and your overall experience. When you reach out, be sure to ask everything you need to know in order to feel secure that you’re making the right choice. Perhaps you know you need to ask questions but you’re not even sure where to begin. Use these four questions as a jumping off point:

#1 How long has your company been in business?

You don’t want to be anyone’s first day on the job, whether it is a plumber or a hair stylist or even an asphalt paver. When considering an asphalt paving contractor, it’s important to choose one with several years experience. You want them to do a great job and if the company has been able to stay open and profitable for a while, you can bet that they will. BBP Pavers has been serving the bay area for over 10 years! This can ensure your project is done by skilled professionals and can put your mind at ease.

#2 Do you have references I can contact?

Before you choose an asphalt paving contractor, consider the work they’ve done for others. The internet is great for finding third-party reviews. Read up on customer reviews and ask the company for a list of references. They may have specific people you have had work done very similar to your project. If they’re proud of the work they do and they know others are satisfied with it, they should have no problem with this request.

#3 What areas do you serve?

Before you hire your asphalt paving contractor, ask about their service area. The best company in the world won’t help you if they only work on homes out of your neighborhood! Most contractors concentrate on a specific area, so they can ensure the work gets done properly.

#4 What project elements are most important?

You’ve now learned this company has been around for a while, has satisfied customers, and serves your area. After you’ve learned these basics, you can finally dive into the specific work you expect to be done. They should be able to tell you their approach to your project with confidence and specific details. They should also be able to work with you on your needs while also achieving your wants.

There may be more questions you can think of after you look at this list. Whether it’s a driveway, a parking lot, or a patio, a hardscape like asphalt is an investment. We understand this!
