FAQ

Why Hire a Florida Asphalt Paving Contractor?

Asphalt pavement is used in many different applications because it is both durable and cost effective. Because of the hot climate in Florida and the effect this has on asphalt, it is important to develop a maintenance plan that involves regular inspections and preventative maintenance.

Decorative asphalt has advantages over decorative concrete. See a video of the decoractive paving process. Asphalt is typically easier to repair. Damaged concrete needs replacement more often.

Why Should I Hire Only a Licensed & Insured Asphalt Paving Contractor?

"Saving" money with unlicensed or uninsured paving contractors can cost a lot of money:

  • Where licensing is required, only licensed paving contractors can pull permits when contractor is used.
  • Injury caused by an uninsured contractor can result in denial of coverage.
  • You can potentially be forced to demolish work done by an unlicensed contractor.
  • Contracts with unlicensed contractors can be deemed illegal and unenforceable in court.
  • Check your vendor's municipal or county license.
  • Professional Property Managers won't assume the liability of hiring an unlicensed or uninsured paving contractor - smart homeowners don't either.
Bonding can cover costs of repairing problems caused by contractor error. Talk to your Insurance Agent about what you need to require from your asphalt contractor in Florida. You can find Workers Comp data at Department of Financial Services.
