What You Should Know Before Hiring an Asphalt Contractor

Use this checklist to insure you are getting the best possible quality and service on your paving project.

Is your asphalt-paving contractor a reputable contractor?

ASI has been in business for over 25 years.  It owns and operates all of its asphalt paving and excavation equipment, and we seldom subcontract work.

Are the owners local and involved?

ASI’s owners, Dan and Bruce Israel, were born and raised in Southfield, Michigan, and have lived their whole adult lives here and their children go to school here.  They are involved in all aspects of the business.

Make sure your bids are apples-to-apples.

When dealing with asphalt-paving contractors, many of them quote different specifications: different types of asphalt, different thicknesses of asphalt, and different thickness in sub-base.  Make sure that you really have apples-to-apples when comparing different specifications and bids.

Is your contractor pre-engineering your job?

Before you actually start construction: have you engineered the site, do you know if there are any drainage issues, are there any pre-existing foundation or grade problems that you should know about before you start?

Does your contractor warrant their work?

ASI offers a full one-year warranty for all work performed, and we will warranty our work up to five years on our Full Depth Reclamation projects.
