You probably know the basic steps to follow if you want to ensure that you hire a reputable contractor. You check references, asking questions about the quality of the contractor’s work, his ability to complete work on time and the attitude of his workers. You contact the Better Business Bureau to determine the company’s rating and how complaints have been resolved. You review the contract carefully to ensure that there are no blank spaces and that all services are detailed. However, did you question the contractor about the equipment he will be bringing to your site to complete your asphalt paving or sealcoating project? Here are a few reasons why you should inquire about the condition of his equipment.
What Your Asphalt Paving Construction Site Says
His Equipment Could be Mistaken For Your Own
Suppose the contractor arrives with equipment that is dirty or rusty. People driving by your site may not know that the equipment belongs to an asphalt contractor; they may assume that it is yours and form a negative impression of your company. In the minds of many people, dilapidated equipment represents a lack of pride in what you do. Is this really the perception you want people to have about you?
Poorly Maintained or Obsolete Equipment is Prone to Failure
If the contractor’s equipment breaks down in the middle of the job, work will be delayed. If parts are not readily available, delays can stretch to days or even weeks. If you need the work completed by a certain date, you cannot afford to risk delays. Even if your deadline is somewhat flexible, delays can cause disruptions that can affect other areas of your operation.
Modern Equipment Provides Better Results
The equipment used in the asphalt industry is a far cry from what was available just a few decades ago. Manufacturers have improved equipment substantially through the use of advanced technology and materials. Newer equipment is designed to minimize guesswork and offer more precision. The results that can be obtained from modern equipment greatly exceed what was possible in earlier times.
