Driveway looked fantastic and our buyers were extremely happy to see the new driveway installed so quickly!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We needed a 70' pipe stem driveway repaved and needed it done quickly since that job was a condition on the sale of our house. We met with John Donahue one evening, struck the deal and the paving was done within 2 days. Amazing performance in today's world of hurry up and wait!

He could improve with the description of services in his proposal estimate. I would consider him if he came out and gave a more precise description of what he was going to do.

Work was never performed. That was the problem!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Resurfacing (new layer of asphalt over existing) with asphalt on 475 sq. ft. driveway was to be performed. Was told over the phone that they would call me the following week to schedule a date. It's been well over 3 weeks and I still haven't heard from them to this date. I even left a voicemail as well. How unprofessional. What a Mickey Mouse company. Glad I got burned upfront instead of having to go through a headache of trying to clean up on incompetent work that I imagine they would do considering how they deal with customer service. How did they get these awards?!? I'm wondering Angie? Just saw another review where they didn't have the same courtesy of returning a simple call. Guys, if I were you, I'd stay far away from these amateurs!

WE HAVE HAD RECORD RAINFALL!! That being said I've ran a paving business for over thirty years and in my chosen profession we rely on the weather. This spring has been a challenge to say the least. Every time we set a schedule it gets interrupted by weather then we play catch up during clear days. And I has turned in to a frustrating work load dealing with customers and potential customers we can'...

He, himself, followed up on the estimate for our job and had direct communication with myself for coordinating. He was very easy to work with and the job was done extremely well. I would recommend that you call this man and let him do your paving.

Very satisfied. Although I was not able to be home when they did the work, when I returned, I had a very nice new driveway. It looks great. They gave me a great price as they already had equipment in the area for other jobs. Everything was handled professionally and I'm very pleased with the whole process. I highly recommend them.

During the estimate process his older son told me that the cracks would be filled on the surface of the driveway and along the edges. After the seal coating was finished (by his younger son) I was concerned about the quality of the job because the cracks were not filled and the application of the sealant seemed thin. I called and asked Mr. Donohue to come by to evaluate the job. We arranged a date...
