How to Choose a Paving Contractor for Paving Parking Lots

Choosing a contractor to pave a parking lot is about more than just price. Here are some questions you should ask potential paving contractors when choosing the one that's right for you.

1. How long have you been a paving contractor or paving business?

It's important to know how long they've been in business because you know they'll be around in the future, for future projects and re-paving.

2. Are there any hidden fees with any portion of the work that'll be done?

Always ask this question and make them say outright if there will be any additions are any point of the project.

3. Will you subcontract the work out without my consent?

Subcontracting the work out - especially without your say-so - should throw up a huge red flag.

4. Will the project pose any unique challenges?

Some forethought goes a long way for any project.

5. What are your credentials?

Always ask for previous work experience.

6. Are you accredited by the Better Business Bureau?

There are two reasons you should ask this. The first is that it obviously adds a lot of accountability and credential, the second is that you can actually go to the BBB's website and read any complaints about the company. We highly recommend doing this with any installation service.

7. Is asphalt or concrete the best for my parking lot?

You shouldn't have to answer this! A good paving contractor will know once they see the property. Let them decide.
