What to Ask References
Request Information From Previous Customers of Asphalt Stamping and Paving Contractors

It is best to choose a Diamond Certified asphalt company because all certified companies have passed an in-depthratings process that most other companies can't pass. If you want quality from an asphalt stamping and paving contractor in San Mateo County, you can have confidence choosing a Diamond Certified company.

Diamond Certified reports are available online for all certified companies. You'll never be fooled by fake reviews. That's because all research is performed in live telephone interviews of actual customers.

If you can't find a Diamond Certified asphalt stamping and paving contractor within reach, you'll have to do some research on your own. If you do, it's wise to call some references provided by your asphalt stamping and paving contractor.

Keep in mind, though, that references provided to you by local asphalt stamping and paving contractors are not equal in value to the large random sample of customers surveyed during the Diamond Certified ratings process. That's because references given to customers from companies are often hand-picked instead of randomly selected from all the company's customers.

If you do call references on your own, specifically ask for a list of the company's 10 most recent customers. This will help avoid them giving you the names of only customers they know were satisfied.

Sample questions to ask references of local paving contractors include:

  • Would you recommend this asphalt stamping and paving contractor to your friends and family?
  • When you need this work done in the future, will you choose this same company?
  • Did they clean up after they completed the job?
  • Did they keep communication with you up to date on the status of your project?
  • If you live in a smaller town or rural San Mateo County, did the paving/asphalt stamping contractor charge you an extra fee to come to your home?
  • Were you satisfied with the service from this asphalt stamping and paving contractor?
  • What type of asphalt stamping and paving were used?
  • Did they finish the work on time?
  • Did they show up for work on time?
