Homeowners Beware of Russell Kirk And Son Paving. He and his band of crooks are making the rounds in South Utica and New Hartford!!!

Some guy named Ed is the front man who gives bogus estimates...takes deposits then they disappear!

If it's too good to be true it definitely is with these scum bags!

Wow this same crew showed up at our door asking if we wanted our driveway resurfaced for $500 said they had extra material from a job down the street.

I said no and this fat moron lookin dude got real pushy telling me they really needed the job and all this bs.

I told the whole gang of them to get off my driveway. They got a white dump truck that says asphalt service in black letters on the side.

Stay away from these a holes, I really think they'd a robbed our house if I want home

Best thing to do is contact the State Police if these guys harass you or try to push you into giving them money. Russ and Eddie are long time drunks and swindlers and are pretty much the laughing stock of Rome

Seems this band of pirates is traversing New Hartford in their white dump truck telling anyone that will listen that they have extra material and will overlay an existing driveway for $500

Ive seen Kirk's work and it plain sucks.

Is this the group with the pull start roller from 1947 that that they haul around with a trailer that looks like it won't hold a lawn mower? I saw the white dump truck with this behind it and laughed my a$$ off.

R Kirk & Son Paving, If you see them near your house, please do not answer your door if they come knocking. They are nothing but swindlers, can't believe there are people out there that are like this. Russel Kirk intimidated my 85 yr old Mother. Here she was along with a stranger in her house and a couple more outside, telling her she needed to pay him $1200. She got so nervous she couldn't even think straight. And the sad part is, this man saw what she had in her checking account and new she couldn't afford it, she was so nervous she couldn't even wright the check, so guess what, he wrote the check and had her sign it. I hope these heartless people pay someday for what they are doing. All I can say is"Karma's a Bitch"!!!

ive known russ for years.first of all he doesnt even own a white dumptruck hes got a green 10 wheeler and a red six wheeler so who ever ur talking about it wasnt him.hes been in business for over 15 years and done alot of work for me and i would highley recomend him to anybody.the town of annsville even hired him to fix abunch of mistakes they made on coal hill rd when they paved it so he cant be that bad.and if he did offer to pave ur driveway for 500 then ur a moron for not taking him up on it.you retards need to get ur facts straight before u go bashing hard working people .

I had my driveway done by R Kirk and sons and I don't see what the problem is? They were actually recommended to me by Accuto's..they were not at all pushy! I told them what my budget was and they were able to work with me on what I needed done!, and did a VERY excellent job!! All workers were very polite and respectable while on my property! I believe the people complaining on here are just causing trouble because of a personal issue or afraid of the competition?(Otherwise u wouldnt kno or think you kno anything about "said persons" personal life?) Any legit argument would not be posted on Topix! In return I recommended them to my father in law who again was another SATISFIED Customer! On that note...Have a good day!:)

He does have a white truck that says ASPHALT SERVICE on the doors. They are lying, thieving scum bags. Russ himself swindled my 77 year old neighbor out of 2200! The fat, sleazy bum "Ed" that runs around with him needs some detox too. Beer cans fell out of the truck when decided to roll up on the "job"

Don't fall for the "my son's sick and my wife stole all my money and left me" left me line of B.S. from this Russ Kirk douche either, he plays a mean violin.

Truth is he's a broke bum who moves from town to town ripping off the elderly. Oh and he likes to bash Gene's Paving while he's at it. Yeah that works...piece of garbage

Bad work from even worse people. Always looking for a quick score. They did my dad's place last summer.$100 worth of asphalt and charged him $1800 to go over top of his old stuff...buyer beware this guy is a creep.

Neighborhood to neighborhood every spring and summer until people catch on.

Richards, Genes, Views...All reputable but this R. Kirk outfit is a bunch of crooks.
