Paving the way using the best paving equipment. Having started my driveway paving company in NJ in 1959, driveways and parking lots have been a lifelong experience for me. I have seen driveway paving contractors come and go over the years. Many times, good paving contractors failed to survive because the market often driven by rip off, fly-by-nights, scammers, unlicensed, uninsured paving contractors demanded prices legitimate contractors could not afford to give while still maintaining the quality of their work. Their businesses just dried up and blew away.
Many legitimate paving contractors went bankrupt trying to compete with the paving prices and the demand created by these scammers. At the same time, I have watched while unethical contractors thrived on paving jobs that fell apart in one or two years. Then along came the Internet and while most legitimate driveway paving companies were concentrating on producing quality work, the scammers concentrated on sucking the consumer in through the Internet with fancy websites, phony testimonials written by relatives and friends, low seductive prices, shoddy workmanship, and cheating on asphalt paving quantity and quality.
Yes, everyone will scramble for a low driveway price. People will wait outside stores sometimes overnight to be first in place for a big sale to begin. The passion for a low price is a scammer’s dream. Don’t let it be your worst nightmare. There are prices that are not possible to achieve without drastically cutting the quality and quantity of the paving material. In the construction of asphalt driveways, it is very easy for the contractor to save three-quarters of his materials costs simply by using one-fourth of the necessary materials while telling the consumer just the opposite. This can lead to the contractor saving as much as $1,000 or even $2,000 on a single asphalt driveway paving job.
So give yourself time to think outside of your desire for the super low price. Do some research. Otherwise, seduction by a passion for low price will get you almost every time and you will hate yourself in the morning. There is a good reason why I include at the top of all my contracts this quote attributed to Benjamin Franklin. I first saw it prominently displayed when I was seven years old on the wall of Bert’s Butcher Shop in Hillsdale, New Jersey. I never forgot reading it, and don’t you forget it either whether it is chopped meat at Bert’s Butcher Shop in 1946 or anything you buy in 2015.
