Job went very well. I called them up and they actually answered the phone which is more than I can say about most. I gave them my address and they told me that there would be someone in my area within the next week who could measure the driveway and then provide a quote. Within the next week, the office followed-up with a quote of $95 as well as the date they could do the service. I accepted and was even able to talk to the estimator about the condition of my driveway. Services were performed while I was at work. Vegetation was cleared, entire driveway looked great and tape was put up blocking off the driveway. I was impressed with the services and will likely use them again next year.

did a beautiful job on the paving and, because I was able to be very flexible about timing, equipment storage and tree cutting to admit equipment, he was able to schedule the work around other, larger projects and give us a good price for the total. Some calls were not returned quickly, and that could be a place for improvement, but overall the issue disappeared. We are well pleased with the resulting asphalt work, and we have already recommended the firm to others seeking a paving contractor.

I called the office on a Monday and left a message. On Saturday,
Arlington Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
called me asking if anyone from the office had been in touch - I told him No, he apologized and he gave some great advice about what to do. We agreed that an oil seal coat would be the best course of action and that he could be at my house the following Saturday. I asked for a window of time and he said he would be there sometime before 7am and 7pm. I asked for something more specific and he said I could call him on Friday if I wanted to. Saturday came and went and

never showed up, never called and hasn't call me since. I appreciated the advice over the phone, but to not show up and never call is just bad business.

was great. Spent time on the phone describing the options and offering suggestions. Arrived early to do the work and it looks good. Was more expensive than others, but we felt we got a better result and service. Was prompted use an oil vs. water based sealer....a good move from what we understand. Very professional. Will use

was on site more often than not overseeing the project.
Our ground is more clay and rock than dirt. It can be very difficult to dig into. However, his team started off using picks and shovels. Mid-day a backhoe was brought in and that seemed to ease the process a bit.
The decision to install the drains was not done until they had already started working. However,

did not hesitate to say that his team could do the work for us -- which was a huge help because we couldn't afford any delays.

, compacted everything, added a crushed stone base and hauled off excavated materials. A state of the art self-propelled asphalt paving machine was used once the asphalt was poured.
Then a vibratory roller was used to

the surface. And the edges were done by hand to angle them in order to provide extra support and give the drive an attractive, overall appearance.
The workmanship and materials are guaranteed for the period of one year.
Payment terms with this contractor are half down with the balance due upon completion. Credit Cards are not accepted.

I'll admit, I had a frustrating time finding someone interested in paving my ~50' driveway in
Arlington Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
. I contacted about 10 places, and got all sorts of responses from no respose to "I don't do

" to "It's too expensive for me to come up there" to "I have to charge you extra to get my truck on your street" to "Why don't you contact your neighbors and call me when you have 4 or 5 of you..."

was the exception. He called me back quickly, came by, and gave me a written estimate/bid on the spot. I waited another week to hear from a couple more vendors, and was successful in getting only two more actual bids, both verbal (still waiting for the written bid on them...). Satisfied that
Arlington Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
's price was in the same ballpark (his was the lowest of the three numbers I did hear, but basically within $50 of the second one I received), I went with him. I signed his bid and got onto his schedule.

A last-minute day change didn't bother me as it actually worked out better for our schedule. He and his crew showed up on the appointed day by 8:30 am and worked efficiently, grading down my old gravel driveway, digging the pipe for the downspout water to drain away, and laying and flattening the asphalt. They were finished by 11:30 am, and cleaned up--didn't leave a mess in the yard or anything.

himself was on-site the entire time (near as I could tell), with a crew of about 4 or 5.

The new driveway looks fabulous, and
Arlington Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
takes obvious pride in his work. He was eager to show me how they did the drainpipe and how he made sure to grade the asphalt away from the house so rain would drain better. It's clear he likes what he does and he is comfortable in the "retail" residential driveway niche. (I am not sure the other vendors I contacted were so). I would recommend him and his crew highly.

His price was fair. It was more than I wanted to spend, but the price of the materials is such that anybody's price would have been high, and his price was the lowest of the 3 I actually received.

All members of the Collegiate team were very responsive throughout the entire process from the beginning with an initial quote to the completion of the project. At the onset of the project, they confirmed that work would begin on September 6 (Labor day) as scheduled and the team was on-site by 8:30 am. We received the original quote last fall but were unable to proceed because of weather concerns that Collegiate identified that would affect drying time and not produce the result that we were hoping to achieve. They honored our original quote price and completed the our project on time. They left the area free of debris. I received many comments from our residents - all positive. Simply put - WOW!

I call

Asphalt based on their reviews and ratings on Angie's List. They were one of three vendors I contacted for estimates, all from Angie's List.
Arlington Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the owner, was prompt in calling back and in setting an appointment to give an estimate. He arrived promptly, answered a lot of questions I had, since I know little about putting in an asphalt driveway and determining if the entire driveway needed to be replaced or just resurfaced. He provided a professional, complete and informative estimate, using a computer and printer he had in his truck. So, in addition to having an immediate estimate, it was legible and contained the complete terms of the proposal, references and pictures of the process. Very professional. The day that was set was raining, so early (before 8 am), I got a call from
Arlington Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
, suggesting it would be better to wait a day, altho it could be done in the rain, he felt the customers would feel better if it was done in fair weather. That was smart, and good business, since if anything would go wrong, the rain could not be used as either an excuse by him or a reason by the customer. Needless to say, nothing went wrong. The next day, I get a call, from the road that they are on their way, but stuck in traffic on I66 eastbound. I must appreciated his keeping me informed. So, they arrived about 30 minutes late, but that was no issue for me, since I knew it. They were extremely careful in setting up for work to both make sure neighbors could get in and out, and that no roads were blocked. Plus, they took extra care not to disturb the lawn with their tools.

double-checked and explained what they were going to do, and how they were going to proceed. That's something I appreciated since I am one of those "what-to-be" construction guy types, who want to play with tools and machinery and learn how things are done.

was very accommodating. It was done in 2 and one-half hours, meticulously cleaned up, and with clear explanations of what to do now (keep cars off to 2 days) and in the future (with a new black driveway, during the hot summer, try to avoid turning the car wheels while not moving on the driveway, putting down a motorcycle kick stand. Neither will ruin the driveway, but will scuff it up.) The entire crew was polite, well-mannered, did a professional job, and pleasant to deal with. A great experience, and it was also the lowest price of the three.

I selected
Arlington Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
based on reviews on Angie's list. I called him on a weekend and he returned my call over that same weekend. He came to my home on Monday and provided an estimate. He was very polite and explained everything. I already had an idea of what portion of the driveway should be taken up completely and what could be paved over and he suggested what I already thought should be done. The crew showed up on time and worked all day until late in the evening. They didn't have enough gravel for a small remaining portion and came back the next morning to complete it. The crew was very polite and helpful, they explained what they were doing or going to do. The driveway was broken up by a very large tree root (s) and the crew worked very hard to dig up the roots. The finished product is great, it looks significantly better than what I had. I was extremely pleased with my overall experience.

called me several times to give me updates on when they would be coming, what they would do and what they needed to do to complete the job. The crew was very neat and made sure the driveway and lawn was clean when they left. Mr.

Once we booked the estimate, work began within 2-3 days and the crew was fantastic. They completed work within 2-3 hours and were responsive to my special requests to care for our tree root system and add areas of asphalt which had been compromised or were not part of the original driveway. When I returned home, the entire work area was completely clean and I was very impressed with the final result. Though this company originally told me that they would not come out to my property to perform the work unless they charged me a $5,000 minimum, they did respond favorably and come out to offer an estimate and, eventually, perform the work, thanks to a behind-the-scenes referral from another vendor.
