What You Should Look For in a Paving Contractor , Middle Fork II, North Carolina

Asphalt is a versatile, durable material used in a variety of construction and landscaping projects. Whether you need a paving contractor to construct a driveway or a sport court, you’ll need to find someone you can count on to do the job right. Here’s what you should look for in a paving contractor. 

4 Factors to Consider When Hiring a Paving Contractor

1. Insurance 

Never work with an uninsured contractor or someone with insufficient coverage. Although these individuals may charge less for their services, you could end up paying more if something goes wrong. Many paving contractors choose the minimum required by state law, but if an accident happens on your property, you want to be protected from financial liability. Make sure your contractor has general liability, auto liability, workers compensation, and an umbrella policy with at least $500,000 coverage per policy.

2. Equipment

Take note of the types of machinery they use and, if possible, inspect them yourself to ensure they are well-maintained and in working order. Machines that break down frequently can delay your project and cost you more money. Asphalt can cool quickly, and waiting too long to install it might affect the pavement’s appearance. 

3. Materials 

Not all asphalt is the same. Select a paving contractor who offers a broad selection of high-quality options to suit your preferences and the surface environment. Find out where they get their materials and compare prices with other local companies. If the price seems unusually low, it’s probably too good to be true; you’ll see a difference in your paved surface when it begins to crumble sooner than it should.

4. Sufficient Crew 

Equipment and materials are essential, but the crew can make or break a project. Make sure paving contractors are trained and experienced. All workers should also be covered under the workers’ compensation insurance policy. Don’t be afraid to ask for references, either; ask for two or three from within the past six months to get the best idea of what it’s like to work with the company.
