As a business owner, you know that first impressions matter. Customers judge your establishment even before they enter it, and a pothole-riddled parking lot is not exactly a good look. Whether you decide to repave your parking lot or add an extension to fit more patrons, you should start by finding a reliable Maryland paving contractor. You need someone who will do quality work at a reasonable price—not much to ask, but also not that easy to find on today’s market.

Avoid The Red Flags

We’ve talked about residential paving scams in our last post, but some scam artists also target small business owners. If your parking lot looks terrible and you know it needs to be redone, you fit the description of the type of victim the scammers are looking for. Fortunately, it’s fairly easy to spot gypsy paving contractors looking to make a quick buck; just be on a lookout for these red flags:

Even if you spot a scammer and refuse the service, be sure to have someone watch your business until the “paving guys” leave. There was a recent case where a Florida business owner left for appointments after saying “no” to the paving contractors and they still paved his parking lot without permission. The police called it a civil matter and refused to do anything because no money exchanged hands, even though the contractors were still on site when the police arrived.

Choose the Best

Now that you’ve disqualified scam artists, how do you choose between the many legitimate Maryland paving companies? If you don’t know any local paving companies through referrals, start by doing an internet search. Pick the top three candidates from the search results and study their websites:

In addition to the above, check the company’s BBB accreditation and reviews on the web. Look for the BBB rating of A or higher. You can also search for reviews on sites like Angie’s List or Yelp. If you see several customers complaining about the same issues, move on to the next contractor.

We hope this list will help you make an informed decision when hiring a paving contractor for your parking lot. And feel free to contact 1-855-Got-Paving for a free estimate.
