I own a asphalt sealing company and I have sealed drivesways that alot of paving companys have done the work. I don't do paving I only seal asphalt. In my opinion Richards does one of the best jobs I have seen. I also like the job parks does, he does more large scale jobs. Stay away from bray paving , story has it he went bankrupt. Heard from a close freind of his today he went belly up. By far I have had the most problems with asphalt put in by bray.

James Bray is a good man. People say he has a bad attitude, He is just to the point and most people respect that. That was a bad idea to ask about who should pave your driveway on here. Everybody knows somebody and they are all going to say the guy they know is the best. Your not getting a true answer. "In THE BIZ" should not get anyones "BIZ" because he obviously doesnt know what he is talking about James Bray Paving did not go belly up!

If you don't know anything about paving then you probably dont really know what to look for. Any paved driveway can look good but that doesnt mean it was done right. It really depends on when you called for a price and when your drivway actually got done. The price of black top was going through the roof every week last year. That may be why the price changed so much. It seems like i see James Bray Paving all over the place so he must not be too bad. I know did the Big Apple parking lot and the Dicks parking lot and they look great.

Chuck Humphreville Paving did both driveways at my parents house 5 years ago. Did a really good job, his price was less than the other 3 quotes that they had. They never have sealed their driveway and it still looks pretty good.

If he did such a good job at Big apple why did he have to saw cut the parking lot in 4 differant spots because of large sink holes??? Because he did a bad job preping the base so it sunk and he to ruin the blacktop by saw cutting it. As far as dick's goes heard he still hasn't got paid and thats the job that put him under. So tacks those facts and use them for your own info. Richards or parks paving they did good work . good guys can deal with them.

Parks Paving by far. If you want quality and honesty I highly recommend calling them. They have always been good to my family and I when we needed anything. You can depend on them to provide you with a top line service and are very personable. The best advice I could give to anyone is to give them a call if your looking at having your driveway paved or sealed.
