Avoid Paving Scams:

  • There are leftover materials from another job. Professional asphalt contractors know, with great accuracy, how much paving material is needed to complete each project. Rarely will they have large quantities of leftover material.

  • You are pushed to make a quick decision. Trustworthy contractors will give a written estimate that will be valid for days or weeks. It should specify in detail the work to be performed and the total price. They also don’t mind you checking them out before signing a contract.

  • Cash-only sales. Most reputable contractors will take checks or credit cards.

  • The company is from out-of-state. Look at the truck the representative travels in. If it is unmarked or has an out-of-state license plate, be cautious. Even if the representative claims to have a local phone number, scammers can easily buy disposable cell phones to give a local number in the area they are soliciting. Also, don’t be afraid to ask to see their driver’s license.

  • Ask for the company business license and verify it. Scammers in our area are now listing fake business license numbers, fake business addresses and advertising in our local papers and our local facebook sale pages. Take the time to research the company.

  • Ask for local references. Check online reviews. Note: Sometimes online reviews can be fake so always research who is leaving the review.
