Selecting a Reputable Paving Company


Choosing a reputable paving company is crucial when investing in a new driveway. There are several steps and questions to consider to ensure you hire a company that will deliver quality service.

To begin, you can:

  1. Seek referrals from friends, neighbors, and family members.
  2. Contact local asphalt plants for recommended companies and request 2-3 names.
  3. Thoroughly review the company’s website to assess its professionalism.
  4. Trust your instincts after meeting with them for an estimate.
  5. Avoid choosing the cheapest bid solely based on price.
  6. Remember the adage, “You get what you pay for.”

When you have scheduled estimates, here are some questions to ask:

  1. What equipment will be used for excavation?
  2. How deep will the excavation be, and how much gravel will be brought in?
  3. What thickness of asphalt will be installed?
  4. How many tons of asphalt will be used to complete the job?

Companies price jobs based on labor and materials. A significantly lower price may indicate shortcuts in excavation or asphalt usage. Ensure you compare estimates based on similar specifications.

For example, would you prefer to spend $10,000 on a driveway lasting 8-10 years or $14,000 on one lasting 20-30 years?

The choice of excavation equipment is crucial. Skid steers are unsuitable for deep excavation; backhoes or excavators are more appropriate.

At Accurate Asphalt Paving, we use a Kubota KX080 excavator for digging and removing soil, rocks, boulders, and stumps.

We never compromise on gravel thickness. For a 12″ excavation, we bring in 10-12″ of gravel, depending on the grades, and leaving space for new asphalt.

Similarly, we do not skimp on asphalt. If we quote 3″ compacted thickness, you will receive 3″ compacted thickness.

We are committed to transparency and customer satisfaction. We welcome any questions you may have during the estimation process.

Thank you for considering Accurate Asphalt Paving. We look forward to working with you!
