We had our driveway paved by Northland last July. I waited to write this review to see how the driveway would hold up in a year or so. It is a very long driveway that curves into our carport. The driveway is looking alright. A few areas that could have been done a little neater but I can live with it. Actually, I have no choice. Georgio quoted me a price that was higher then everyone else but I decided to go with them anyways due to their reputation and paid the extra. If I had to do it all over again I probably would have gone with the lesser quote as I have seen the work their completion did and it was quite acceptable. After signing the contract, it took approx. 2+ months from the time they ripped up the driveway till the paving. The workers were quite friendly and went about their business in a timely and professional fashion. They did a fair job in cleaning up after completion. Other then what I mentioned above, the one complaint I have is after the contract was signed and job completed I had a discount coupon that they wouldn't honor because the contract had already been signed and paid for. I thought this was a tad petty but it is what it is.

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. We confidently stand behind the quality of each and every driveway we install. When our excavation crew excavates a driveway, a report regarding the condition of the base is given to our scheduling department. Based on the "sponginess" of your driveway we determine how long the driveway must sit before the asphalt is laid. This waiting period can be on average of 2 to 8 weeks but we have seen extreme cases need to wait longer. This waiting period is for the benefit of the driveway as we need to make sure the base is firm enough to maximise the stability.
We use rollers for compaction however some areas of the driveway cannot be rolled with the roller without the risk of damaging the house or window wells, etc. and must be compacted manually with tampers. This does not affect the stability of your driveway but sometimes the texture will be different.
Sorry you were unable to take advantage of a promotion we may have offered. The terms of the promotion may have dictated it to be given upon signing the contract.
Rest assured we have built you a strong driveway and will stand by our warranty.
