Whether you require asphalt paving services for a single driveway, road, or for an entire mega mall shopping center, it pays to hire the right company for the job. The cost associated with putting in new asphalt paving, whether it is part of a larger Greater Boston construction project or not, is significant. As a result, you will want to make sure that you maximize the return on your investment by hiring a qualified service provider. With proper maintenance, a well-designed and installed asphalt project can last more than 35 years. However, if you hire a Forest Hills general contractor who does a poor job, it might begin to fall apart and deteriorate after just a few years.
Any repairs you make to the sub-par paving project will be expensive. And the truth is, you are probably better off just pulling it out and redoing it anyway because it will continue to be a problem. Finding a contractor who can provide you with quality asphalt paving services can be difficult, but it is worth the effort when you see the finished results. TRI Construction offers a range of asphalt paving services along with our top-rated general contracting in Forest Hills and the surrounding area. It is important to hire a team that you can trust to provide you with quality results. Here are some tips to help you make a smart choice.
Avoid Contractor Scams
If someone knocks on your door from any sector of the construction industry and tries to sell you work, just say no. Most door-to-door sales calls from contractors are scams. However, if someone knocks on your door and tries to sell you discounted asphalt leftover from another job in the neighborhood say no and warn your neighbors. While the contractor might be trying just to get rid of some extra asphalt and might do a decent job, there is a temperature issue when it comes to asphalt and by the time the original job is complete, what’s leftover is probably not going to look and perform as well as when the materials were new.
If someone knocks on your door promising a new and improved way to do asphalt paving services or concrete work, it is also likely a scam. The asphalt industry has not changed in many years, so any “new” techniques or methods are probably non-existent. These folks are just trying to solicit work and will say or do anything to get your business. The bottom line is that if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t work with a contractor who pressures you into working with his company. The good services will usually have more business than they can handle, so contact them right away to get “in line” to get the work completed.
Ask Questions & Get Referrals
Property owners, both commercial and residential, will sometimes have a hard time asking questions when they contact a Greater Boston construction service. While the basic questions about how much and when it can be done come easy, other questions can be difficult. Before you hire asphalt paving services from a Forest Hills general contractor, make sure to ask about the type of equipment that is used, how many employees will be on the job site, and the grade of asphalt that will be used for the project. You can go even further and ask about the thickness of the asphalt layer and if the company is properly licensed, insured, and bonded. These are all smart questions that you should not be afraid to ask for asphalt and general contracting in Forest Hills.
A good contractor will not hesitate to answer your questions. They will sit down with you and review all of your needs. They will even ask you if you have any questions and explain any situations or circumstances that might require additional work. A good contractor should provide you a timeline for asphalt paving services and explain any technical terms to you that are not common knowledge. This is true for both commercial and residential projects, so don’t feel that you can’t ask these questions if you are a property manager or work for the owner in some capacity. You should also ask for personal recommendations and contact the individuals or go look at the property to see the results in-person.
