How to Select the Best Paving Contractor

The satisfaction that you get after the paving section on your project is completed may largely depend on how well you selected the paving contractor. Read on and discover some of the key considerations you should have in mind so that you select the best contractor.

Landscape Visualisation

Consider hiring a contractor who has visualisation software that can be used to show you how your yard will look once the project is completed. These 'before' and 'after' projections can help you to decide whether the contractor will produce what you want. The visualisations can also be used to assess how well the contractor delivered on their earlier promises since you can compare the projections with the completed work.

The Project Installation Plan

You should also examine the proposed project implementation plans of the different contractors before you make a final selection. Opt for a contractor whose implementation plan is concise and easy to follow. You should also look at actual samples of the pavers that each contractor intends to use so that you are sure that the colours match what you want.


Find out what kind of guarantees/incentives each paving contractor offers as you evaluate the bids before you. For example, some contractors may offer incentives in case you assign them the task during the off-peak season. Others may offer discounts for each day that they exceed the project timeline. Select the contractor whose guarantees show that they take their work seriously and will do everything in their power to complete the job within the agreed time without compromising quality.

Maintenance Plan

It is also advisable for you to select a paving contractor who offers a maintenance plan at a subsidised rate for a given duration after the completion of the project. Such contractors may be more inclined to do an excellent job during the installation to limit the cost of fixing any defects that can develop within the first years after the paving job was done. However, you need first to do some research to find out what third-party contractors charge for the same maintenance service. In this way, you can assess the competitiveness of the maintenance terms proposed by the contractors who wish to undertake the installation project.

Take your time during the process of selecting a contractor. Ask for expert help during this process if you are inexperienced. You will then have no regrets that can result when an inexperienced contractor is given the job.
