6 Things To Consider When Choosing a Commercial Asphalt Repair Service
Everyone has seen what happens when asphalt repair is done incorrectly. After blocking a highway or closing a parking lot, the first rain brings sinking spots or potholes, sometimes making it worse than before the work. By taking the time to do your due diligence, you can choose the best commercial asphalt repair service for you. The following tips should help you find the right commercial asphalter for your project.
Research the Company
With a wealth of data literally at your fingertips, there is no reason you shouldn’t have access to the information you need on any potential contracting company. Try searching for the service you want and notice who shows up. Once you have your shortlist, do a deeper dive to see what projects they’ve worked on, whether they have posted customer testimonials, and how long they’ve been in business.
You wouldn’t hire an employee without checking their references, so why would you consider hiring a contractor for an important project like a highway or parking lot without making sure they do what they say? If you know anyone who has had an asphalted project done, that is a good place to start. You should also ask the company for references from previous clients.
Reading reviews has become so commonplace that it is often the first thing that happens before choosing a restaurant, buying clothes, or visiting a landmark. Reviews can give you others’ experiences over time and give you an idea of the value for the money. You can not only get information in reviews that you may not find in other places, but you can also see if the business takes the time to respond to anyone who may have a less than optimal experience.
When seeking the best asphalt contractor for your projects, you want to make sure they know how to communicate with their customers. Even if they do exceptional work, it can become a nightmare if your contractor leaves you in the dark about what is going on in the interim. Reviews give you a glimpse into your potential future with the contractor. Numerous resources on the web can provide reliable customer testimonials, such as Google, which works to verify the posts to prevent fraudulent reviews.
Write down your questions before calling or meeting with a prospective commercial asphalt repair service. Asking questions serves a dual purpose. First, you can tell how well they communicate with their customers. If you have to drag information from them, that should be a huge red flag. Secondly, you can find out more about pricing, possible lead times, timelines, and more.
Before you hire a contractor, you need to request and compare estimates. You shouldn’t be looking only at the bottom line, though. Ensure that you are clear on exactly what services they are providing, that they align with your needs or requests, and compare those details to the others you received. An estimate that looks 50% cheaper than another may be due to providing only half the product or service.
Trust But Verify
It would be nice if we could always simply trust someone’s word. Unfortunately, there have been many famous (or infamous) examples over the years that you can’t always take someone’s word as gospel. If you have a potential contractor on your shortlist that is reputable, they’ll be happy to give you all the information you need on their licenses, certifications, and insurance so you can verify them. These details will ensure you get a company with its hard-earned licenses at stake and rectify any problems that may occur during the project.
Another verification you can perform is experiencing the quality of work firsthand. Drive down the roads the contractor has worked on to see if there are problems. Visit and drive around the parking lots they listed in their past projects. Notice the quality of work, how clearly and how it is wearing.
