Question

Asphalt driveway


I was looking at getting an asphalt driveway done. I know most of these guys are either scammers or fly-by-nighters. I will definitely check references, licenses, etc.

What should I be looking for as far as technical questions to ask them as far as prepping and building an asphalt driveway to ensure that the guy knows what he is talking about and I know that I am getting what I pay for. Also, what is a typical rate for their work?

Rates will vary from one area to another, Call 3 in your area for an estimate. the cheapest job may be just that, beware. ask for addresses in your area to go look at jobs done. Also just a tid bit, I personnally went with concrete, (Stamped w/colors) If done properly will last for years,and not require much to maintain.
