Not sure how to find the best paving company for your commercial project?

Vetting a contractor is a critical first step in your paving project. The truth is that even a small misstep in this area could result in delays, downtime, and added costs.

Here are five key questions you should ask any commercial paving company before hiring them!

What Is Your Experience with Commercial Projects?

When hiring a commercial paving company, experience is critical. An asphalt contractor that lacks significant commercial paving experience will undoubtedly encounter issues that could delay your project and cost you money.

At Empire Paving, we have been delivering high-quality commercial asphalt paving services throughout the GTA since 1976. In that time, we have worked on projects of all sizes and delivered paving services for Walmart, Ikea, Home Depot, and other major brands.

What’s more, we are familiar with almost any type of commercial paving project and the challenges it might present. This kind of experience will prove invaluable on your commercial paving project!

What Are Your Credentials?

Specific credentials will vary from company to company, but in general, a seasoned commercial paving contractor should be able to provide some proof that they are qualified to perform the work. This is often what separates a small residential paver from a qualified commercial paving company.

Empire Paving is an active member of the Ontario Road Builders Association (ORBA). This means that we are held to much higher safety standards and procedures and that we hire experienced union labourers as part of our large crew. We are also licensed, bonded, and insured, and provide proof before every project!

Are You Able to Meet My Project Requirements?

Requirements vary from project to project, which is why proper planning and coordination are imperative for the success of any commercial project.

At Empire Paving, we take time to strategize with you and any other third parties involved before we start the work. By developing a firm understanding of the needs, requirements, and potential challenges of your specific project, we can work quickly, efficiently, and confidently once we arrive!

Can You Provide References?

Every smart commercial paving company will swear by the quality of their work, but you should always take their word with a pinch of salt. Do your due diligence by asking the company to provide multiple references from past projects.

At Empire Paving, we have many references that we are happy to provide before you take the next step in hiring us for your commercial paving project!

Do You Offer a Warranty?

Every reputable commercial contractor will stand by the quality of their work, and a warranty backs the workmanship of your asphalt paving investment.
Our company offers a full one-year warranty for all of our commercial paving products and services. In the unlikely event that we do not exceed your expectations and deliver on our promises, rest assured that we will make it right!
