R-N-J Paving has been providing quality asphalt paving services to the Northern Shenandoah Valley and Northern Virginia since our founding in 1988. Our success is due to our quality workmanship, competitive prices along with our excellent customer service and care.
Unfortunately, the asphalt paving industry is notorious for dishonest, fly-by-night scam artists who take advantage of unsuspecting customers. We're here for the long term and our success depends upon customer satisfaction as well as customer education, which is why we provide this information for your benefit.
• Deal with reputable local contractors who can provide local references. Avoid those with no set location, out-of-state license plates, or those who travel from door to door saying that the have 'some leftover material' and can give you a good price. Most often the material is too cold to work with and will cost you in the long run. If a deal seems too good to be true, it usually is.
• Always insist upon a written proposal with a complete and detailed listing of all work that is to be performed. The estimate should always include details regarding the material to be used and the price based upon the compacted finished depth of the asphalt. Remember that as asphalt is compacted the depth is diminished: a 3 inch depth asphalt will compact to a 2.5 inch finished depth.
• Never be afraid to ask questions. A reputable contractor will be happy to educate you about your particular needs, while one who seems unsure or evasive is probably not a contractor you would wish to hire.
• Asphalt is a product that requires as much art as it does science to install. You can count on the professionals at R-N-J Paving to be here now and in the future to stand behind their quality work.
