Asphalt Driveway reviews in Philadelphia
An estimate was provided on Friday, 1.6.2012, and both the section of pavement removal and the area of addtional pavement were marked at the time of the estimate in orange spray paint. I was given a written estimate. I was given time, before accepting, to check credentials on the Internet and AngiesList. While the price seemed high compared to others on Angies List,
The crew showed up on Monday, mid-morning, and performed the paving, as promised, .The project took 5 hours and was complete by 3 PM.
I paid no money up front, and I paid with a personal check upon completion of the project. I was given a one year guarantee, but a verbal offer to return after that for any problems. I was advised to call for a asphalt-based sealing in 18 months.
The site was left very clean.
The company had a team of at least 7 men, and two brothers,
The team had on-site a small front end loader, the asphalt spreader and a roller, and seemed fully equipped for efficient work The team worked consistently from 1030AM to 2:30 PM.”
A contractors -- tried contacting six -- but two of the three failed to respond/provide quotes in a timely fashion which they said they would. When a contractor misses their own deadline by days, if not weeks, without apology, I take that as a poor sign of business.
G&V IS WORTH EVERY PENNY. ”
In late August, I spoke to Mr.
A month or so went by, during which my wife and I both changed jobs. When things settled down a bit, I decided to give Mr.
That thing about no good
I have literally just hung up with Mr.
I asked him why he didn't bother to call me to tell me that I was out of his service area, instead of simply no-showing our appointments and failing to return my phone call. I wasn't angry that I was out of his area - it can't be helped, after all, the laws of geography being what they are. I was angry that I had scurried home from work no less than three times only for Mr.
"I thought you'd figure it out when you didn't hear from me."
I was a little surprised by this explanation, so I asked a fairly
"You're a small businessman, right? You're a professional?"
"Do you feel that I have received professional service here?"
Long pause. Then, finally, "Look, if you can't find a contractor to pave your driveway in two months, that says a lot more about you than me."
Now I was starting to get angry. I told him that I'd called him as a courtesy to let him know that he was going to get a bad review on Angie's List if he didn't have some sort of explanation or couldn't otherwise make things right. Maybe he'd had a family emergency or something - after all, it happens. "And this is my reward? For you to call me an idiot?"
"I didn't call you an idiot."
"You said that if I couldn't find a contractor in two months that says more about me than you. What else is that supposed to mean?"
He didn't answer. By this point, my wife had taken interest in our conversation.
"Besides, I did get estimates from other contractors. The price was higher than I would have liked. I wanted an estimate from you because people on Angie's List said that you were coming in below other estimates."
"That's right. I have lots of satisfied customers, for 23 years. And, you know, maybe I do have some things going on in my life. You're nobody to me. So you write what you want on Angie's List."
"You're nobody to me?" I repeated, staring at my wife with disbelief. "I don't have to 'write what I like.' I'm just gonna write down what you say. You're killing yourself here." My wife, taking my
"I mean, you're not family or anything. Maybe I have something going on in my life. I don't have to explain myself to you. So you write what you want. Have a nice life. Goodbye."
