driveway paving

We hired springside paving to pave our driveway which was gravel before. Our main point of contact was Peter. We had an agreed  date and then there was weather related delays - a month and a half or so. Then we get the call to say that they are coming which was a little short notice (because not everyone can get time off in the summer with no notice) but oh well we managed. The paving went smoothly and everyone was nice and they were quick about the job. I was told initially not to park on it for a couple of days and one of the workers said it pretty warm out so you might want to wait a little longer than that. I left it for a week. I had a tripped planned anyways so that was not a problem.  The first time I parked on it there was a depression in the pavement from my front tires - I drive a corolla by no means a heavy vehicle.

Springside paving paved driveway.

Waited a week to park on driveway then notice a depression - (first of many by the way)

Spoke to Peter about it and he said they would be back up in the area mid August - September. I was also told that the problem would go away on its own?

Called springside paving again and spoke to Peter and he told me to call back after labour day weekend.Which I did and he told me they would back up in the area after thanksgiving - the Canadian one not the American one? We are now over half way thru November and no signs of them and we have the pavement starting to crack at certain spots . 

In short if you have work done by Springside Paving hopefully you don't have to call them back because they will give you the run around about the repairs. I don't think pavement should sink the amount it has or crack like it has ....

Approximate cost of services:
$5,500.00

Company Response

Hi Alfred I'm sorry to see the review & your right you did contact us a couple of times & you were understanding to wait until we came back to your area, in actuality I did pass by to see the driveway in early October & I should of contacted to let you what I saw . What I did see are tire marks which is simply tire imprints on fresh asphalt which can definitely happen in the summer heat when you twist & turn tires which is not your fault or bad material it's just a possibly on fresh pavement which generally 2 things happen 1) they disappear as the driveway wears or as I mentioned on our last conversation I can heat them up & remove them very easily which will not effect the integrity of the driveway this is what I call a aesthetic repair which means it's sucks to see a tire print on a new driveway but again this is not due to bad material or poor workmanship we also mention this in our warranty that it can happen but regardless I will pass by in the spring to have another look just to make sure all is good .

Happy holidays

Peter
