Driveway paving

After 17 years with my old paved driveway, it was time for new and unfortunately, the original company could not be found. I selected Ludwig based on reviews on this site after getting 3 quotes. They were second lowest. Everything went fine until just after the 1 year mark, their warranty period, when I noticed a couple of long cracks, not in areas where the car drives. When I called William said that the ground must have shifted ( why after the last paving lasted 17 years?), it was out of warranty, not covered, but he would come out to look at it and put a sealer on the cracks. He never did come, and I am getting more cracks. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY

Driveway asphalt paving

The drive way was finished August 2017 in Thornhill. The surface finish came out a mix of smooth and rough patches of larger stones with gaps between the stones. William came back to see it and told me to seal it. See picture of rough spots. Do I have to finish the job?

4 Years and Still Very Happy

It's been four years and I am still very happy with my finished product! Minor sinking where tires go in and out of garage on a daily basis, but aside from that, it has held up very well!

Quote for paving

Very responsive. Came even on a Sunday morning to meet and discuss what needed to be done.
Then gave advice on what to put on the driveway extension instead of stones

Paving, extending driveway

I have forgotten the gentleman's name that did our home in Etobicoke, he was great. He educated us on what he was going to do and why.

The price was competitive to the other popular paving company that does a lot of homes in the area. It has been two years and things are looking good. Our neighbor across the street went with more expensive guy, will see which driveway holds up over the years.

Why did I go with Ludwig, the man who both sold us and was on site during installation, and because they do commercial work, thus it gave me confidence I was getting industrial grade materials not something modified for home use.

asphalt paving

They came in late in year but according to them its ok. Paved drive, told them how I wamted the water to run and to keep grase away from my house

Wow, I have never seen a a contractor do the opposite of what they were told, I told them to grade away from my house, cuz I had eaves redone. They packed asphalt up against my house so no water would flow to it but I have a 70 ft drive now when it gets cold it freezes to ice 30ft from road where we get out of cars and walk like frankenstein to come into the house. They were instructed in how I wanted water to flow and did not do that, The asphalt was subgrade as I had my contractor in 2x after this was done and shook his head saying are you satisfied with this? Asphalt was no where smooth as it should , pitted everywhere, not done as I told them. i will be probably redoing it by someone else dont have time to fight with them

driveway paving

Got tired of fly by night driveway companies leaving quotes in my mailbox when they were "just in the neighbourhood". My driveway definitely needed replacing. Not knowing how to find a reputable company, I looked on Homestars. Talked to 3 companies (one company's idea of giving a quote was to look up the address on Google Maps and quote based on that?!!) and Ludwig was, hands down, the most professional and the only one to consider the bylaws. The work and options were explained, the removal of the old driveway and new repaving were efficient and professional -- they were obviously experienced and knew what they were doing. They came when they said they would. 4th contractor/company I have had to hire this year (for different projects) and the least stressful, most reliable and professional, smoothest experience, most satisfactory work of the bunch. Nicest driveway I have ever had, as well.

Asphalt Driveway

This was the first time we looking for a paving company. We didn't know where to look (newspaper, internet, etc). From the ones we gathered, Ludwig is the only one with good rating from Homestars.com, the next best was a 5 out of 10. So it was an obvious choice. And we are very happy that we chose them.

All crew members showed up on the job date before start time, and they observed Toronto's noise bylaw to the dot, and patiently waited till 7:00am to start the work. The team is very experienced, because you can tell each member knew exact what to do at any moment, there was no slacking at all. The entire team worked like a clock work.

In the end, the driveway came out very nice.

Driveway paving

This is our second time using Ludwig, having used them on our first and second homes. We were so pleased with the first use that using them again was a no-brainer. You will pay a small premium for them but it's well worth it. They use premium products, don't skip any corners, and their attention to the smallest detail is the best in this industry. William is an honest and genuine sales rep and George and his crew are second to none. Our driveway had some tough grading challenges and they resolved them fully. George has treated both our driveways like he was working on his own home They are also respectful and clean.

Company Response

The guys were beaming with pride all day long when I read them your review.
Thank-you for the kind words and taking the time to write them. If you have any issues with your driveway, even if it's your fault (except oil spills: we can't help with that), call us, and we'll come out as early as possible to help you fix it.
