There is a group of gypsy contractors who have descended upon Jonesboro, AR. They do asphalt paving and sealcoating. They are based out of a trailer park located on Parker Road next to harbor freight tools. These individuals are NOT locally owned and operated, so deal with them at your own risk!!! They will tell you they are from Jonesboro, but they go from community to community doing as much work as possible, and disappear without a trace. I am a local college student who does seal coating, parking lot striping, crack repair, and pothole repair to make ends meet while I go to school. If you would like to deal with someone who is local, and trustworthy send me a message and I will get back to you ASAP.

As a college student, you should be socially aware to the extent of realizing that they are not Gypsies. They are Irish Travelers. Get your ethnic slurs straight, young man.

The term gypsy is not reflective upon the ethnicity of these individuals. It is relative to their nomadic behavior as they travel from one area to the next. It is a common term in this trade and not intended to be a racial slur.

I grew up in White Hall, AR, which had one of the largest gypsy communities in the state. "Gypsy" is what they chose to call themselves. Any of my gypsy schoolmates from those days would be baffled to hear you say it is an ethnic slur. From what I understand, they still refer to themselves as such.

I agree,having known some of them personally.They do not consider the name a racial slur.That is what they themselves say.Irish Travelers isn't correct,either.I believe they originated in Hungary,Poland,Russia,Germany, etc.Not to say that there are no Irish gypsies,but,they're not primarily Irish nor originated from Ireland.

While I am at it,Asphaltsealcoater,we have a parking pad at our residence that has cracked badly.Would you be willing to evaluate that? How do we get in touch with you?

GYPSY??????Hmmm?? wasn't sher a gypsy,,lol

the term is fly by nights,,In the construction trades you have pros that stand behind there work and you have cons (fly by nights) gone as soon as the check clears,,

As far as the trailer park bunch,,don't really know?? it might be that they are here because there firm got the contract on one big job.

all the gypsies I have ever met were from Romania. Nice enough people but very strange customs :) I really dont care if they are local or not as long as I get a good price and a good job.

The white folks from White Hall or Pine Bluff that have a black sounding dialect cannot be trusted. They are a bunch of liars. It is a dad and 2 sons that basically spray your parking lot black with very small amounts of actual sealer in it.(at least that's what they did to me and at least one other local business).
Their work will wash away with the rain and weather in about 3 months.
They say 'true dat' a lot. Hope this helps. Had to pay to get mine redone. Very happy with the new job which was done by Arkansas Striping, which is owned by the Barkers from right here in Jonesboro. They are faithful members of Nettleton Baptist Church, and are definitely NOT gypsies.

You would be talking about McNally Paving. Yes, they are a joke. I have also had dealings with Arkansas Striping and they are WONDERFUL people. I could say a lot about McNally but won't for the sake of my business name. Hope other's that reads this stay away from them.
