So Glad I Called Asphalt Expert!
In the spring of 2019, Joe Sparks at Asphalt Expert responded quickly to my request for a quote to repave my 275-foot-long driveway. This would include a complete excavation of the old pavement, laying of new foundational material, and new pavement on top of that. During the quote visit, Joe was professional, friendly, very informative, and provided me a quote right on the spot. He even offered up some excellent tips on how to ensure a long-lasting driveway.
I got a 2nd quote from another local paving company for the same work. Joe's price was by far the best. In fact, there was such a difference in prices between the two that I talked to Joe about it for fear that I was missing an important detail in Joe's quote. Joe very professionally helped me understand why that other company probably needed to charge more for this type of job and assured me that there were no hidden fees or surprises I should expect when it came time to pay for his work. We agreed that if he ran into a big unexpected situation once the work got under way, that would be the only thing that would potentially change his price...understandably.
Joe and his crew did the job the last week of August and my wife and I are very happy customers. Because Joe was paying special attention to some draining problems our property has where the driveway run off goes straight into the garage, he was prepared to recommend a solution once he got the excavation underway and could assess the situation. He presented a perfect drainage solution, was able to show me a sample of the product he recommended and had a contractor quickly available to give me a quote on that piece of the work. They got right to work on the drainage installation so Joe and his team would not be held up in their work.
Joe runs a tight shop. You don't see guys sitting around watching other guys work. You see everyone hustling and bustling, none of them working as hard as Joe himself...on site the whole time keeping things moving. Very impressive indeed.
Our driveway is amazing and I know it's done right. It has improved our property and its value significantly. When the job was complete, we paid Joe exactly the amount he quoted us. He didn't see cause to charge us a penny more. If you need paving work done, my wife and I give our highest recommendation to Joe and Asphalt Expert!
