Warranty Repairs after initial work not complete

Had driveway completed July 2018. Over the winter there were 3 very long cracks down one side of the driveway. Took pictures and e-mailed them to Mike (the owner) in March 2019 with no response. I had to call them 3 times, left a message but never got a response until someone finally answered the phone on the 4th try. I was told that they got the e-mail of the pictures and I was on their repair list. April & May passed with NO contact and no one showed up. Called again and I was told I was on the list, please be patient as they were busy. Mike, the owner, finally sent someone out to have a look in June. They looked told me they didn't have enough asphalt on hand to compete the job and gave me a BS story about the water downspout being at the side of the house and it might happen again. The house is 30 years old and that rain water drain has been there since it was built. They said they would be back with more asphalt but it took more calls to finally get someone out late July. I got the exact same story; not enough asphalt on hand have to come back and the problem will return because of the rain downspout. It is now October and no repairs have been done or even attempted. I have lived in this house for 21 years and this is my 3rd driveway and by far the worst experience I've had. This is not the way to treat a customer. Extremely disappointed. If I have to get someone else in to repair it I will take Aurora to court. This needs to be done before the snow flies.

Great job!

I chose Aurora Paving based on the positive reviews I had read in here compared to the mostly negative reviews I had read about other companies in the industry. Mike was amazing.. he came out to our house in Claremont the same day that I called him, which was awesome, and took measurements and gave me a quote.
His office then followed up with the date of excavation and showed up on time and were very professional and punctual. As you can tell, there's a lot of machinery, vehicles and workers involved with this so it was nice that they arrived early and were done within 2 hours, minimizing the disruption to our neighbours.
Mike advised it would be approximately 4-6 weeks after the driveway settled before they would pave it. I had heard from a few people that the longer it sits the better, so when they called back after 7 weeks, we were thinking perfect timing. The guys showed up on schedule and worked like an assembly line, done in 2 hours (and we have a pretty big driveway). I found this company incredibly easy to work with and the attention to detail was there.
In addition, one thing I really appreciated was that Mike said they do not charge one cent until the job is completed, so you are not left chasing them after they rip out your driveway and are waiting for them to pave. It's only been a few days, but our neighbours have already been complimenting the new driveway. Thanks CA!

Happy Customer !

I would just like to Thank You Aurora Paving for a great job from start to finish.

Rick our sales rep came out and price our paving job for our driveway at our new build in Nestleton ,ontario . We had two other quote from other companies but When Rick Provided us with quote i know we would be going with Aurora Paving , His quote was not the least expensive but he gave us the confidence from his knowledge and made my husband and i very confident we would get what we were Paying for .
I had to delay them from coming out because we were behind due to bad weather rain etc .
When i call Jody at the office to let them know we were ready for driveway to be paved she was able to accommodate us promptly to my surprise witch we appreciated greatly . The date of install the paving crew showed up on time and they did a awesome job !!

Thank you Aurora Paving
Debra & Steve. S.

Driveway Paved

From Mike to the crew that did the actual paving, one word comes to mind - Professionals. One fear was the potential of messing up a new stone border we had installed - fear was totally unfounded - not a mark or trace was left. Thanks for that, guys. Curb appeal of house has increased 100%. Recommend, for sure.

Driveway paving and concrete walkway

The team a C.Aurora paving did an excellent job extending and paving my driveway and adding a concrete walk way and repairing my front entrance. Mike and his team were professional and courteous while meeting our needs. They executed our project flawlessly. The curb appeal of our home is now a 10! We couldn’t be happier with this company and their superior service. I will always recommend C.Aurora Paving to anyone looking for driveway paving.

Great Service!

Mike returned my initial call promptly and attended the same day to give me a quote. I was happy with the price and description of services. The work was completed in a short period of time and I am absolutely delighted with the result. Everyone was friendly, the work was done exactly when I was advised it would be and I cannot say enough about the result. I would definitely recommend this company.

UPDATE

The best way to know if a company is great is to have a problem. Unfortunately, I had weeds coming up through the asphalt on my new driveway within the month. Today a fellow came out and remedied the situation and pointed out that the neighbour beside me had a virtual jungle on the other side of the fence. These weeds were actually coming up under the driveway. I will remedy that situation and thankfully all of the weeds are gone now and the fellow repaired the driveway to it's pristine original new condition. I am happy once again. :)

Unfortunately, a month later and I have trees growing out of my driveway. I have sprayed them with round up and tried to squash them down but more keep coming through. I have called to ask for a repair and the response was quite curt and I was told I would be put on the list for repairs. That was a week ago and no response yet. Not sure I am such a happy customer at this point. The best opportunity to impress a customer is when something goes wrong. I’m not impressed with trees growing out of my driveway only a month after having the asphalt laid. These are only two of the pictures after I snapped off the stems.

Residential Driverway

We chose Aurora based on a recommendation from our neighbour and we certainly were not disappointed. During both the removal and installation the crew was friendly, clean and most importantly did a great job on the driveway. My only criticism would be the friendliness of the office staff.

Church Parking Lot Removal and Re-paving

We are very pleased with the final result of the removing, re-grading and re-paving of our church parking lot. Our water drainage (rain water flowing toward the church building) and pooling problems (pooling in winter had caused slip and fall hazards) seem to have been solved by the good work that Mike and his crew did. We would recommend C. Aurora Paving Ltd. to all customers considering a paving job small or large.

Definetly the company to pick! :)))

First very professional company. I called and within a business day mike came out measured the site and made a great sketch clearly outlining the places where I wanted my old concrete driveway removed and all new ashphalt placed. He emailed me the written contract with the sketch and price very clearly so there was no guessing what I was going to receive. They came and removed the old driveway in an extremely skilled manner compared to all the other quotes I was getting. He did not wreck the foundation of my house with his methods opposed to other contractor who wanted me to sign or at least warning that they could ruin the foundation causing future waterproofing issues.
1.5months later, after removing the concrete, the great crew (good team) professionaly, skillfully, and happily laid the new driveway and path. They sloped the driveway and pathways perfectly away from my house and cleaned any mess on the road that they made.
I called 8 companies other than CA paving and between companies showing up and not wanting to do the job because too difficult, too much manual labour, not wanting to do the pathway, or just overall no true interest in doing the job.
I can’t stress enough how happy I was through the process and with the final work.
Great job with my house and thank you!!
