This company's BBB accreditation was revoked by the Ft. Worth TX BBB on June 28, 2009, and currently has an F rating. The company is currently operating in the state of Montana. For a full report on this owner and his past activities with BBB, read the report at:
Consumer complaints allege dissatisfaction with services received and product quality. Complaints also allege the company will not honor the written contract warranty for needed repairs. The company has responded to complaints but some complaints remain unresolved and unanswered.
The BBB warns homeowners to do their homework before hiring a paving company. Itinerant asphalt/paving dealers can always be active in the area, especially during the spring and fall.
Be aware of paving companies that approach your home, stating that they are "in the area" and have extra asphalt or concrete to repair your driveway for a minimal cost. Many times the company will quote a low price for their work and upon completion overcharge the customer. The BBB also notes that contracts are not always provided prior to the work being performed and that many jobs are poorly done and incomplete.
The BBB advises consumers to research all options thoroughly and not be pressured into signing a contract or agreement before all terms and conditions are clearly understood.
