If you are looking at putting in a new driveway, sidewalk, patio, or other structure made from asphalt or concrete, choosing the right company is paramount in terms of getting a high quality result. A new driveway for example is not just a purchase, it is an investment for your property. The same is true for businesses looking to put in a new parking lot.
Imagine what it’s like to see a home for sale that features a driveway that features a myriad of cracks. The only worse thought of buying a home with a driveway like that is owning one and you have to sell it. It’s not a pretty picture nor does it have a happy ending. However, you can avoid a good number of these issues if you choose the right asphalt and concrete company to do the job.

Recommendations: Trusted friends, family members, co-workers, and even businesses are a good source of recommendations when it comes to finding the right company in your area. While they should not be the only ones you research, it will give you an excellent place to start.
Licensed: All companies that provide asphalt and concrete services must be properly licensed by the state. The license should be current and properly registered. While it seems that virtually all asphalt and concrete companies should be properly licensed, there are those who slip through the cracks so to speak. If the company does not have a proper license, you should move on to another company.
Insured & Guaranteed Work: Proper insurance covers the customer in case the company causes an accident or injury while at your home or place of business. Not having insurance means you might be left with the bill if the company cannot cover the costs.
Guaranteeing the work should be standard for any company, in particular one that paves driveways, parking lots, and the like. The guarantee should be long enough that any major flaw in their work is revealed in a reasonable amount of time. Plus, a company that cares about its reputation is going to back their work.
Testimonials/Referrals: Generally speaking, no company is going to post a bad testimonial or a referral from a customer that did not like their work. However, they are still quite useful if you can check out the job that they performed. A quick drive by a parking lot, sidewalk, or driveway they created will let you know first-hand about the overall quality of the work they performed.
Reviews: Finally, customer reviews that are posted on their website or on independent sites is another way to find out more about the overall quality of work the company performs. While even the best companies will have a few negative reviews, what you are looking for is patterns of either good or bad service that best describes how the company does their work. It also helps to look them up on the Better Business Bureau to see their track record with customer complaints.
Overall, finding the right asphalt and concrete company takes a bit of research, but the results will be well worth the time.
