There are quite a few paving mistakes that could ruin your new project. These mistakes could put you back both time and money. Regardless of whether you are getting a new sidewalk, patio, or driveway, there are some mistakes that you need to be aware of. In this video, you will learn about these common paving mistakes and why it is crucial to hire trustworthy and experienced paving contractors.
One particularly dangerous mistake is compromising on quality. While it may be tempting to hire a contractor that offers a discounted price, this could easily be your project’s downfall.
The reason that some contractors are able to offer lower prices is because they use cheaper materials and mixtures. This means that your pavement likely won’t be as durable. In fact, these same contractors may also be the contractors that cut corners to save costs. The result will likely be a less than ideal finished product that does not last long. Cheap pavement may break up in only a year. In fact, the more expensive contractors may actually be cheaper when you factor in how long a quality pavement can last compared to a cheap pavement.
