Trusted Asphalt Paving Contractors
Asphalt pavement is remarkably durable when installed and maintained properly. However, if you want to get the maximum life from your asphalt investment, it is important to hire a trustworthy contractor. Whether you are installing a new driveway or having sealant applied to your parking lot, the wrong contractor can mean that you are just wasting your money. How to find out who are the trusted asphalt paving contractors in Cape Cod.
Trusted Asphalt Paving Contractors – Check References
Reputable contractors finish projects on time and within budget, respect your property, treat customers in a professional manner and ensure that the job is done correctly the first time. Obtain references from the contractor you are considering; contact the references provided to see whether the contractor demonstrated the qualities listed above.
Reputable contractors are fully insured for your protection as well as their own. They will carry vehicle liability, workers’ compensation, general liability and perhaps an umbrella policy. They are willing to provide you with proof of the insurance policies they have.
Reputable contractors do not take projects for which they do not have the proper equipment. Make sure that the contractor owns the necessary equipment for your project. Ask whether the equipment receives regular maintenance; if not properly maintained, equipment can fail in the middle of your project and delay completion.
Reputable contractors typically have several years of experience, but they also have experienced, well-trained crew leaders. Every member of the crew will receive adequate training before being allowed to work independently.
Check the Quote
Reputable contractors provide written quotes that detail the materials, schedule, warranty, scope and total price as well as all other pertinent facts. They are happy to review the quote with you and explain what each line item represents if necessary.
Check Safety Measures
Reputable contractors understand the need for a safe work site. Ask the contractor how he will manage traffic flow, whether his equipment operators are qualified for the particular machines they operate and the steps that the contractor will take to protect your visitors, your employees and you.
