Last time on the Sunrise Asphalt blog we talked briefly about a few of the most common asphalt repair techniques out there. If you’re a frequent reader you’ll remember we left off with the note that if the damage to the asphalt is much more extensive than a crack it’s time to get some help from paving contractors you can trust!

This time on the Sunrise Asphalt blog, what to look for in paving contractors!

Four Things to Look For When Hiring a Paving Contractor

Insurance Coverage

Insurance coverage is an absolute must! Every asphalt company needs to be covered to protect the team, the equipment, the business owner, and the person who is hiring the company in case of an accident etc.

Look for the company to have general and auto liability as well as workers’ comp coverage. These will cover any property damage, damage to vehicles on the job, and workers. All of which makes for a safer, more trustworthy work environment for your asphalt needs.

Proper Equipment

If you want your asphalt paved right you need to have the right tools on hand. Meaning professional equipment, vehicles, and materials. Qualified, equipped paving contractors should have motorized asphalt rollers and pavers like the LeeBoy we use at Sunrise Asphalt!


References are crucial for any business! Reputable paving companies will have references ready and on hand to share with any potential customer to show the results of their hard work. Paving parking lots, driveways, or roads are a big job and quality contractors will want you to see those references to trust them to do the job.

At Sunrise Asphalt, we have a whole page of our website dedicated to references for our work! We break them down by jobs so any prospective customer can reach out directly to someone who had similar work done.

A company without references is not one to trust lightly.

And lastly, perhaps the biggest thing to look for when it comes to a paving contractor is this…


Can They Answer Your Questions?

You want to work with someone who will answer all of your questions, whatever they may be! Answering questions, walking customers through the process, all of these are ways for a contractor to show their expertise and build trust with potential clients. This means, if the contractor is worth their salt they will jump at the chance to do just that!
