3 Qualities to Look for in an Asphalt Contractor, Rochester, New York

Whether you’re getting a small driveway or a large-scale parking lot for your business, you need a beautiful and durable surface. To accomplish this, you need to work with an asphalt contractor you can trust. Hire someone with the qualities below, and you’ll know that you are hiring the right person for the job.

How to Choose an Asphalt Contractor

1. Certified & Licensed

When hiring a contractor, always check that they are properly certified with the state. This proves that they have experience in paving and that they have posted a bond for their work, so you can trust they are a true professional. Ask whether they have worker’s compensation insurance, which will protect you if an employee gets injured while working on your property.

2. Range of Service

For example, a commercial paving contractor should have experience working in parking lots, roadways, and driveways.

3. State-of-the-Art Equipment

Even a skilled contractor cannot do quality work if they are using sub-par equipment to handle your project. They should have their own state-of-the-art equipment that allows them to efficiently and effectively work on your project. An asphalt contractor should have trucks, mixers, and steam-rollers at their disposal. Ask about their maintenance schedule as well so you can trust these machines are in top condition.
