When it comes to any home improvement or community project, choosing the right company is paramount to its success. No matter the size or the scope of the project, there’s a lot of scammers out there looking to waste your time and money. We have some tips for choosing the best asphalt companies so you don’t get taken advantage of the next project that comes your way.
Before you begin researching asphalt companies, ask family, friends and others if they have any recommendations. If you’re looking for repavement, chances are your HOA or community can offer recommendations leading you in the right direction. From there, you can get quotes on prices, materials and time frames to help you pick the right company.
If you’re not getting recommendations from those around you, you’ll need to search for asphalt companies in your area. Look at Angie’s List, the Better Business Bureau and do an Internet search for asphalt companies in your area. Get a list of three to five and look at their web sites. Read reviews. See what services they offer and what prices they may put out there. Not all web sites will have the information you’re looking for, so if you’re not finding what you need, give them a call.
They should be able to give you a quote over the phone on the scope of your project based on the details you provide. They may want to come out for an estimate and see what they’re working with. Do what you can to get the most accurate estimate possible so you can compare prices and find the best asphalt company in your area and for your project.
When talking to asphalt companies, or any company, you have to go with your gut. They’re going to sell you hard and sell you fast. Stick to your guns and get your questions answered. From there, you can pick and choose as necessary for your project. Not all asphalt companies are the same. By taking your time and finding the one you trust, you can ensure your project is completed accurately, on time and for a fair price.
