Quality and Integrity Since 1959
Are you worried about getting a decent driveway for the money you are going to spend? Most people are. The problem is finding a contractor who isn’t going to take advantage of your interest in a lower price. While searching for a lower price is something we all do for many reasons, it can have its drawbacks. Every contractor in the paving business is going to be interested in selling you the job. He knows you have gotten other prices from other contractors. So In order for him to develop a price that matches or beats the other contractor’s price, he simple takes advantage of the following opportunities.
The current cost of asphalt And trucking to your house is in the neighborhood of $80 per ton including tax. This is the first place to save money in order to lower the price. For instance, if your driveway size is approximately 2,000 ft.2 you will need 2 inches of hot asphalt or 24 tons to achieve that or 1.2 tons per hundred square feet. The contractor writes a proposal for your driveway using 2 inches of asphalt and then actually uses only three quarters of an inch, thus reducing the tonnage used for your driveway to approximately one-third or only 8 tons. Doing the math, contractor #1 uses 24 tons times $80 per ton equaling $1,920. Then add The cost of stone To reinforce the base at $700. Contractor #2 uses 8 tons Of recycled Poor quality asphalt At $65 per ton equaling $520 And no stone to reinforce the base saving Another $700. for a total material savings of $2100. Added to that, he uses cheap labor he picks up in the morning.( These day laborers do not know what they are doing.) He saves approximately $400 On labor and Workmen's Comp. insurance for a total of over $2,500 in savings. Of course, if you count the fact that these day laborers are uninsured and they get injured under New Jersey state law, they can sue you the homeowner. Your homeowners’ policy will not cover the claim.
Your legitimate contractor gives you a price of $6,500. The scam contractor comes up with a price of $4,200 to $5.000 Making a net profit between $200. and $1000. more than the legitimate contractor who Actually does a good job. you Have become a Another victim For the Scam artist. The worst of it is the legitimate contractors is forced to give out Many many unsuccessful estimates and eventually either conforms Becoming Another Scam artist Or He make no money, or go out of business while you get a driveway that falls apart in a few years. You lose and So does The legitimate contractor. The Scam artist wins that's why they're proliferating, Because it pays. Remember the bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten
The Scam artist Can save up to $2,500.00 He then shoots the homeowner a price $1,500 less then a legitimate contractor and walks away laughing with an extra thousand dollars Of your hard-earned money in his pocket. Leaving you with A worthless driveway.
