Good company to deal with

I had three paving companies provide quotes and each were in the same range. Two of these were recommended to me as they had performed work in my neighborhood.

I went with Nortown due to dealing with Silvano (very prompt response) and good reviews. The showed up on the day and time arranged. They arrived with a professional crew, lots of specialized equipment and coordinated materials delivery. They performed the job efficiently, of a good standard and left the job site (and street) very tidy

Repeat customer!

Upon reading reviews here on Homestars, we contacted 3 contractors to get quotes to do our driveway with concrete curbs. My husband and I decided to go with Nortown. There prices were fair and comparable. Silvano and his brother Rocco were very professional and completed the project in a timely manner. We were very happy....even a year later we still had no issues with the pavement and the concrete curbs. We decided to contact Silvano again to do my mom’s house the following year. My mom needed a new driveway with a concrete walkway (see photo) and curbs. Again the project was done professionally and in a timely manner. We are very happy with both houses. Thank you Nortown for being reliable and trustworthy! You guys rock!

Driveway pavement

Amazingly organized and fast. The whole excavation and finishing off my driveway was done in less than the hours! Sam, the person in charge was the one who you want to discuss your project with, hear his honest opinion and trust. He knew the job and his price was quite fair.

Job Well Done

They are real pros, team lead Mark is very easy to communicate with, and the whole team is very experienced, seems like a clock, every one get his piece done just at the right time in the right way. They left the site after proper clean up, as if they have never been here, except a new pretty driveway. They also went above and beyond to fix some side issue for me.

Driveway repaving

Beginning from the time I was comparison shopping, I felt good about Nortown. Marc was reliable in his communication with me and very friendly. Their price was competitive to the others I spoke to, so I chose Nortown based on Marc's knowledge and character.
He came by and looked at the job, assessed what needed to be done, and confirmed the price.
Once the weather was conducive to tearing up my existing asphalt he called to make the arrangements. After a few weeks they were back to lay the asphalt.
We are very happy with the result and would call on Nortown again if we needed to do anything else.
I will definitely refer my friends and family.

Asphalt Driveway

The Job was completed last year and looked great. After the winter, thin spots with small holes about an inch wide appeared exposing the material below the asphalt The asphalt was only of 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. I was able to push a screwdriver into the earth and crushed material below proving to me that I did not get the compacted 2 inches of asphalt specified in the contract . After sending photos to Silvano, he told me they would repair it and not to worry. After not hearing back for some time I contacted him again and he said they do repairs at the end of the year- about 5-7 months away. I then got a call from Sivano telling me his uncle Sam was going to look at it. Sam came without tools, did no measurements, did not poke or inspect the holes closely , became testy and said there is no problem and the job will last for 10 years. He tried to convince me that there were just imbedded stones that came loose but he never explained why I did not get 2 inches of asphalt as promised in the contract. I am concerned this job will not last. I am an engineer and my neighbour who was present is an architect We know what we were looking at. We also know that Sam was just trying to convince us that there was no problem because it was going to be costly to fix this. It appears my only option is to get another company to fix it and go to court to get Nortown Paving to pay. It is unfortunate because this company has a number of good reviews. I guess if you deal with them you need to know that you are rolling the dice and just hope that you don't get a below par job that requires follow up from them.

I have added a photo of one spot to show the material coming up from under the thin asphalt. There was only one visit (not two) made under duress after pointing out the problem of thin asphalt. You can see the fine grade of the asphalt which contains no stones (see the photo).. As a Profesional Engineer I stand by all my comments above regardless what the company chooses to say . I really have no axe to grind, just surprised by how they are trying to avoid dealing with this in a busines-like manner. Like I said, take your chances.

Nortown Paving Made 2 Site Visits to review what seemed to be an issue from the Owner, however the driveway was completed 2019 and still is to this day as per Industry standard . There are no issues with the Driveway . What the owner doesn't know is that the Asphalt mix is with stone aggregates to make it durable. We have been in the Business for over 42 Years and if we do see a Deficiency, we make the appropriate repair. This compliant is just unreasonable to us.

Backyard Patio

We had Nortwon Paving do our driveway and front walkway 5 years ago and were so pleased that when it was time for us to do our back patio we did not hesitate to call them back for this much larger job. Sam came to our home and went over everything with us. He helped us come up with a design that maximized our space and provided a quote on the spot. When the day came for the job to begin, we were so impressed by the professionalism and hard work of the team. The end result surpassed our expectations. The team cleaned our driveway, took the 15 bags of mulch we had in our garage and spread it all over our garden just so we would get the full effect when we first looked at the finished job. This is a company that takes pride in their work and truly aim to make their customer is 100% satisfied. If you are looking for quality work, professionals who take pride in their craft, then look no further, Sam, Mark, Rocco and team will help you create your dream project.

Driveway Repaved

Nortown Paving did a fantastic job from start to finish. Silvano was prompt in responding to my initial contact. He quickly setup a time to meet and provide a quote for the project and address any questions that I had. On the day of the project the crew showed up and did a fantastic job. They were in and out quickly and did a great job. The neighbors have all commented on 1) how good of a job Nortown did and 2) how quickly they were able to tear up the old asphalt and lay down the fresh new asphalt. Thanks again to Silvano and the whole crew!

Basketball Pad

Nortown was outstanding and delivered service to a standard that is uncommon among contractors these days. I called them to resurface part of my driveway, to serve as a basketball pad for my kids.

Silvano assessed and quoted the job and could not have been more pleasant and professional. Calls/emails were returned almost immediately. On the day of the job, a crew of 8 men showed up on-time and well-equipped. Rocco was also very pleasant, professional and efficient in guiding the work. Finally, the price was reasonable for the work involved.

Overall, I could not imagine a better experience and highly recommend Silvano and Rocco.
