What you should look for in an asphalting company

30 August 2018

No matter the asphalting job, be it developing a driveway, a parking lot, working on a highway or creating a general hard surfaced area in your home or business, you want the best asphalting crew to take care of the job. The chances are you’re not very familiar with the area of asphalting, so it can be difficult knowing what to look for in an asphalting contractor. Here’s why you should give us a call when looking for asphalt companies in Sydney.

Licenced and insured

First and foremost, always make sure the contractors you hire are both licenced and insured. This is extremely important, as it will ensure you are protected throughout the entire job. Requesting documentation is a good idea, so you can maintain that peace of mind, knowing the contractors are both established and safe in their work.


Experience is one of the key traits of a quality company. Check how long the business has been around, as this will be a great indicator as to how well they must complete jobs. You should be able to view this information on the company’s website. Inspecting past jobs they’ve completed is also a great way to assess their quality.

A practiced asphalt company will also have great communication and transparency. You should be aware of every step of the job, and a great company will make sure you are.

A multidisciplinary team

A quality asphalting company will have a collaborative team with skills across many areas of asphalting. This involves teams being able to handle machines from profilers to excavators to haulage trucks and everything in between. A team of only a few individuals will have a difficult time finishing a job at a great standard, and if they do it will take a long time, so make sure the company has a sufficient team.


Price is probably the major talking point when it comes to any job. Getting several quotes is quite a good idea to see what the ballpark pricing is. Obviously, you should be weary of overly expensive jobs, but also be aware of the jobs that are priced too cheap, as poor materials will likely be used.

Extensive portfolio

Asking around is a great way to see if others have been happy with the company’s work. As mentioned previously, viewing this work in person to review the quality is also a good option.
