Driveway and Pathway Redo

Benny and his crew did a great job repaving our driveway and installing an interlocking path to our front door. They were on time and responsive to all our questions. I would recommend them.

New Asphalt Driveway - in Thornhill/Markham

This is a long time overdue review ... Sorry for writing it so late. I got the contact info for Metro Wide Paving from my neighbor who had the driveway done over 25 years ago and it looked the best in the neighborhood. I met with Joe a few days after I contacted him and I received a very competitive quotation/estimate from him. But the best thing I received from Joe were his advises and suggestions. Before I made my mind to go with Metro Wide I checked with about 10 other paving companies and Metro Wide had the best cost-value combination offering.
To make a long story short, Metro Wide team did the driveway on schedule, everything worked out smoothly and we are as happy as we were the day they finished their work, and that was in July, 2014.
A few days ago, I approached Joe again to help me with sealing the driveway and Joe referred me to a company who did the job for me. I am very happy with their work too. Why I am saying all these? Because if you go with Joe you get a friend who stays behind his work and years later he responds within minutes to any needs you have. Look nowhere else: if you need driveway or similar work just contact Metro Wide Paving, you will not regret it. I believe that you will be happy like myself and like my neighbor who's driveway looks like new after 25 years.

Asphalt paving; trap drain at garage door

Compared with others, Jason of Metro-Wide was very knowledgeable when we discussed the situation: a single driveway at the curb widening to double, and sloping down to a double garage. He discussed options and researched drains. His estimate in September 2019 was competitive; however, weather and volume of sales precluded starting before winter. The 2019 estimate was honoured in 2020, and work began as soon as weather and the pandemic permitted.

Joe informed me when the crew would be here, pavement was removed efficiently, gravel laid, with little mess and in a few weeks, the crew returned to construct the concrete drains, lay more gravel and pave the driveway. The crew was pleasant, informed me of next steps, was helpful, worked efficiently and cleaned up the site. I was most impressed with their work and would not hesitate to recommend Metro-Wide for paving.

At the time of construction I discussed requirements for the drain grate specific to the site and my situation with Joe, the crew, and the manufacturer of the drain grates. However the finished grates do not meet these requirements, with the result that water has backed up and overflowed the drain during two rainstorms this past week. I discussed the problem with Joe 10 days ago and am awaiting resolution.

Asphalt Driveway Repaved

We had our driveway repaved last week by Metro Wide Paving and are happy with the results. Joe and his crew were prompt and professional, and the price was very reasonable. We would definitely recommend them.

Great Job!

I called the three major paving contractors in Toronto for quotes. In addition to new driveway paving, I also had an issue with concrete landing below my front steps which over the years had sunken and shifted making it a tripping hazard. The other contractors suggested excavation and new inter-locking for a lot of extra money. Benny at Metro-Wide was the only one who suggested that the concrete slabs could be lifted up with heavy equipment and reset underneath with gravel. Metro-Wide did this perfectly!!! Very happy with the paving on the rest of the driveway! Metro-Wide was a great choice!!!

Avoid Metro Wide Paving at all costs

This has got to be the worst company I've ever dealt with in my 4+ years of working in the renovation industry. After working on a project with Metro Wide Paving with sub par results at best, I made the mistake of hiring them for my own house thinking Jason, the 'sales and marketing' guy, would take a little more care on my job.

After pouring new asphalt on my driveway during the summer heat wave of 2019, multiple deficiencies were reported to them because of it not setting properly due to the heat. Contact was repeatedly attempted on my behalf to get the issues rectified for a year with excuse after excuse from Jason. He has made a point of blaming me for the deficiencies (i.e. if I hadn't turned my car wheels in my driveway, the numerous and highly visible wheel depressions would never have appeared, if I hadn't put a plywood work bench on the driveway over a year later, grooves wouldn't have appeared in the asphalt, etc.). Initially Jason had his brother use a blow torch on the spots which did absolutely nothing but burn areas on the driveway causing an unsightly result. When I tried the following spring to get the issues properly corrected, he offered to have his father in law come to 'look at the issues as a favour', but it was made very clear to me by his father in law and Jason himself that these were not in fact legitimate issues and nothing substantial was going to be done to rectify the damage (though they did offer to blow torch it again!).

There are a ton of paving companies in a GTA - do yourself a favour and call any single one of them but these guys.

Hi Parris,

While I enjoyed working along side you and your team at the Richards Group over the last three years, your blatant attempts to tarnish our company name is saddening to say the least. We have completed multiple projects for your clients and have always had extremely positive reviews. Some of your clients are even in these reviews providing us with 10/10 ratings. So the lies you tell about how horrible we are are laughable as you continued to use our services and provide very positive feedback.

Now I do not deny there is very minor issues to your driveway, which you admittedly caused by cranking the steering wheel of your car while stationary causing aesthetic scuff marks on the asphalt. You also admitted to putting a table with heavy tools on the driveway in 32 degree plus weather and were shocked to see the legs of the table cause indentations, even though we explained asphalt is a pliable material and can dent, bent, and shift in certain conditions. Although neither of these are warranty issues we agreed to come out to heat, buff and tamp these areas. You were very clear that if we were not going to replace the entire driveway than we should not step foot on the property. That was by no means a reasonable solution to issues you yourself caused. We were more than willing to provide a reasonable solution, while you demanded very unreasonable and unfair action be taken.

You also had your lawyer threaten to sue me. That was put to rest quickly after me explaining how you have committed libel defamation and that we would be countersuing for defamation of character. After presenting him with past text messages from you, emails from you, and testimonials from your clients all stating how happy you are with our work and how you will continue to refer us, he very quickly decided to put the lawsuit aside and said we should put matters to rest. Even your lawyer sees you are trying to take advantage of a very minor situation. You have lied about our working relationship online as a means of harming my reputation while I have proof of past praise and desire to continue to have us execute projects for your clients. It is sad it had to come to this, but I'm glad to truth came out and your lawyer no longer has to waste time pursuing a fruitless endeavour.

Front Walkway, side Walkways and Back Yard patio, Driveway asphalt

Joe and his team are very good at what they do, and they performed the work with the utmost regard for customer service and quality. his interlocking team had discussed with me every step of the way on design changes and progress, along with any work that needed to be modified due to unforeseen conditions. Joe was very honest and thorough in explaining what was going to happen, and he was very open about the schedule as well. I highly recommend Joe and his team at Metro Wide Paving for all of your interlocking and asphalt needs!

Fantastic Company!!

When I opened a request for a paving company; Joe was the first one to respond. Not only was he one of the few who bothered to contact me; but he was at my home with an estimate that same day. I had my existing driveway; curbing and walkway torn up and completely replaced with concrete and asphalt. What a great company to deal with. Their work was impeccable; and all the work was done on time - exactly as Joe had promised. His staff were all courteous and friendly. What a relief to deal with such an honest; hardworking company. I would recommend Metro Wide Paving to anyone who needs paving and/or concrete work done...

Driveway Paving

In 2019 I had contracted with another paving company to pave my drive, this company was unreliable, never met any of their milestones and consistently provided false dates and information. As part of a Facebook post, Metro Wide posted that if anyone had been let down by the other company, Metro Wide Paving, would be pleased to come and quote the job, I have never been so happy for a Facebook post!

Metro Wide met every single timeline and kept me regularly apprised of when my driveway would be repaved and the price of repaving my drive was very reasonable.

Metro Wide's crew are a great bunch of guys, very polite and professional.

The driveway that Metro Wide provided went beyond my expectations, I am thrilled with their work.

I would highly recommend Metro Wide Paving!

Thank you Metro Wide, job well done!

Highly recommend Metro Wide

Met with several companies for quotes and scope work for replacement asphalt for driveway for both my neighbour and I as we share a connected driveway. Chose Metro Wide and their rep Jason as the quote was reasonable and Jason was a pleasure to deal with. The crew were experienced and efficient and it showed in their work. Jason explained all the details to us during and after the completion. I would highly recommend Metro Wide and Jason for your driveway needs.
