Is there anything more stressful than researching and picking the right Plant City parking lot paving contractor for your home or business project? Almost all of us are afraid to fall for one thing—promises that were made but won’t be fulfilled. There are plenty of these in the industry—companies who like giving out “freebies” and “discounts” when they are really part of the charges.
When you search the internet, you’ll find a lot of advice when it comes to looking for a pavement contractor. While almost all of them are right, it can be quite confusing to harness all this information once you’re in the process of closing a negotiation. How can you remember all the 10,000 things you have read, after all?
Here, we decided to concisely list three things you need to look for and know before signing that contract.
There’s nothing scarier in the world than knowing you don’t have insurance. Whether it’s your house or your car or your business or yes, your parking lot pavement, it’s a scare to realize you’re not protected from any untoward incidences. Having your driveway or parking lot paved is not only a massive project, but it will also take a lot from you financially. You need to choose a contractor with a big coverage, possibly a $500,000 to $2,000,000 coverage, depending on the project you tasked them to complete. You also need to check if they are properly insured in the area where they are operating. There are different requirements per area, so better check yours.
Not because the company said it can do asphalt paving doesn’t mean they can do it on all surface. The size of the project matters, too. Some companies specialize in residential asphalt paving while others are experts in commercial paving. That is why it’s important for you to identify the size of your project and the materials you want used because this will play a big part in choosing the right pavement contractor.
Sometimes, it’s not enough to search for good or negative reviews on the internet. What you can do is to request a list of completed projects from the contractor and study each one of them. If you have the time, you can visit the sites and see for yourself if the project was done with finesse. A legitimate and reputable Plant City parking lot paving contractor should be able to provide you a list of completed projects with addresses and phone numbers.
