Choosing Asphalt Contractors

A Paving Company You Can Trust

R.J. Hellmann & Sons is a paving company you can trust to get the job done right, on time, and on budget. We've been in the asphalt paving business since R.J. Hellmann first started in 1953.

Over the years, we've developed a reputation in the Baltimore area as a company that knows its stuff, and offers quality work with honesty and integrity in all we do.

Selecting asphalt contractors to work at your home or place of business is a big decision. You want to make sure you go with the right company.

When you are choosing, please keep in mind the following information:

  • Always check for a current Maryland home improvement license, preferably with a low number.
  • Make sure your concrete contractors have all the required insurance, general liability and workers compensation.
  • Check the Better Business Bureau for the number of complaints filed against the contractor and see if they were settled.
  • Never hire someone who knocks on your door claiming to have left- over materials. Never hire out-of-state concrete contractors, as warranty issues could be a problem.
  • Try to get at least 3 estimates, but be careful if one price is too low.
  • Always agree to a firm fixed price and any additional work price agreed to before job is completed.
  • Ask for references and follow up on them. Insist on concrete contractors with many years of experience and an established place of business.
  • Never pay a deposit far in advance of when job is mobilized.
  • Usually if the deal sounds too good to be true, it is.

All of these points are good rules to follow whenever you’re hiring a contractor of any sort, not just asphalt contractors.
