Thanks to its strength and quick assembly, more property owners are choosing asphalt paving. Asphalt is considered the most cost-effective and appealing pavement choice today.
The outcome of your asphalt installation will impact the appearance of your neighborhood or business for many years, so choose a reputable asphalt paving company that provides quality customer service and superior work. Many factors can affect an asphalt paving project’s outcome – and choosing the lowest bid isn’t always the best choice.
Consider the following 4 factors so that you can make a well-informed decision.
1. Years of Experience
One of the most important qualities of an asphalt paving contractor is their experience. The candidates you consider should have an extensive history of expertly completing projects in your area. Local contractors will understand the unique regional challenges, like weather, that could affect your project.
Premium Asphalt has been serving customers in Central Texas for over 10 years – including College Station, Bryan, Brenham, Temple, Waco, and beyond.
2. Licensed and Insured
As with any contractor you hire, your asphalt paving professional should be properly licensed and insured. Unlicensed and uninsured contractors are a risk to use – their work and the final product may be inferior, they may damage your property, or even injure themselves or others. Choose an asphalt paving contractor who doesn’t hesitate to provide their license and insurance information – this protects both you and your contractor.
Choose a reputable asphalt paving company willing to share their customer reviews and Better Business Bureau rating. You can also check the company’s website for case studies or reviews. Sometimes, an asphalt paving company will suggest a new customer visit a project site that was recently completed or is in production.

4. Type of Equipment
Find out what type of equipment the contractor uses and how reliable it is. Equipment that breaks down often can delay the completion of your project and even affect the appearance of the end result. Well-maintained equipment is crucial to any asphalt project.
Also, avoid hiring any contractor that paves by hand. Asphalt paving machines are expensive because of the technology and efficiency behind them. So, beware of any contractor that claims to provide the same quality and efficiency as a paving machine.
Think of asphalt paving as a long-term investment and remember the motto, “you get what you pay for.” When asphalt paving is professionally installed, it can last over 20 years. So, saving a few hundred dollars may cost you thousands of dollars down the road. Do some research and interview a few contractors so that you can make an educated and informed choice.
