Choosing a paving contractor for your project is not always easy because this line of work requires careful planning and proper implementation. A reputable contractor will assess your project’s scale and work accordingly, which is why it is so important to choose an experienced asphalt paving contractor who understands your needs. You must hire a team you can trust, and the paving contractor you select must provide you with quality services. 

Factors to consider when choosing an asphalt paving contractor

  • Experience

Look for contractors who have many years of experience in this industry because this will ensure high-quality results. The more experience they have, the better their work will be. Experience also means they have the necessary permits required for paving projects. You can rest assured knowing the contractor will apply the right type of asphalt mix and thickness for your specific paving project. 

  • Insurance

Liability insurance is a must, and you must confirm this aspect. The asphalt contractor you hire must have liability insurance to protect you in case of accidental injury on the job site. Compensation coverage would protect the contractor and their team from injuries, although it will not cover property damage caused by the contractor. This is why they need to have auto liability and an umbrella policy.

  • Team

The contractor will use a team to complete the job, and you must find out whether or not they have the correct number of workers to complete your project successfully. Depending on the job site and the scope of the work, six to eight workers may be required. If the number of workers is less, your project can be delayed. Ask about the number of crew members they have and whether or not these individuals are experienced.

  • Equipment

The contractor you hire must have the proper equipment required for asphalt paving. Asphalt cools quickly, and newer paving equipment is necessary to ensure the work is completed on time. The contractor should use modern techniques to ensure high-quality services and results. 

  • Budget

Always ask for an estimate from your paving contractor. The type of asphalt mixture and environmental factors should be factored into the price, and a reputable contractor will provide you with a detailed breakdown of costs. They will not go over budget and will give you an estimate after they inspect your property. 

  • Completion date

This information will not always be exact, but an experienced paving contractor can provide you with an estimated completion time.
