In the Spring of 2012, my wife and I began speaking with asphalt companies in the Genesee County area in a effort to receive estimates for asphalting our existing gravel driveway. Our drive way is 18 foot wide by 177 foot long, so we knew it was going to be expensive, especially with the additional parking area we wanted to add. After speaking with 6 different companies and receiving bids from each, some in excess of $12,000, we went with a locally owned and family operated company named Chippewa Asphalt. The work was supposed to happen in the spring of 2012, but due to local road constructions projects that no one at either the Genesee County Road Commision or Mundy Township could give us a definitive time schedule for, we had to push the project back until October. After the Road Commision finally finished paving the road we live on, Chippewa was able to do their thing. In a matter of 2 days we had a new driveway and couldn't be happier with the appearance, quality workmanship, and attention to detail that Josh and his crew gave us. Their wonderful customer service, willingness to do the job I wanted done, and flexibility in working with us given the road construction situation are just some of the many reasons I would advise you to call Chippewa Asphalt for any asphalting job you may have. This is an Update to the original post: My driveway is now 18 months old, and already it is breaking apart. Last summer July of 2013, when this driveway had only been down for 8-9 months, I started noticing cracks forming along the tamped edges all the way around the perimeter. I called Chippewa and explained the problem and they put me on the schedule to have the guys come out and heat up the edges and tamp them again. I also asked to have the driveway sealed while they were here, two birds with one stone, right? Well, the driveway got sealed and approx. 20 linear feet of driveway edge appeared to have been heated up and tamped. I called the next day and spoke the office staff regarding two things. One, the guys left without finishing the job and didn't say a word to me or my wife. Two: I needed to pay for the seal coating (almost $400). I was told by the lady(owners wife) in the office that she wanted Josh (owners son) to come out and look at the driveway. Until she was able to get him out there, she was going to hold off billing me for the seal coat. Over the next several weeks, I touched base with the office several times and was given the same stock answer of "Josh is really busy working on a big job down in the Detroit area", "I keep trying to get him out there to look at it", "I'll leave him another message". I'll admit, I wasn't as persistent as I should have been in having this taken care of before the snow flew. Well, now that winter is over I am trying to get this taken care of and yet again it seems that I am getting caught up in a game of phone tag and so far, one unreturned email. I was able to speak with Josh on 4/10/2014 and was told "I'll try and get out there later this afternoon or tomorrow to look at it". "I'll knock, if no one is home, I'll give you a call". It's now Monday 4/14/2014 at 3:45pm and I still haven't heard a word. Needless to say I am getting frustrated with being pushed to the back burner. Perhaps they will see this update, and realize that they are need of performing some "service recovery" (I believe that is the buzz-phrase being used right now) in hopes of keeping a once happy customer, happy!
