We hired Giovanni and Regional Paving to do a commercial parking lot/driveway. it required a full excavation he recommended us use a road grade asphalt he apply 3 inches of HL3OPSS for more strength and durability . We needed to divert the water away from the building to a centre lane way behind the shed which was a little difficult but they got it all done in a timely fashion. Their crew was fantastic . It was a busy road no interruptions smooth traffic flow they did a fantastic job thank you regional paving and Giovanni I highly recommend your company to anybody great customer service ! The job was completed November 2017 and still looks fantastic after a harsh winter . And the best part no water in my basement anymore
Thank you Joanna for the kind review. Working with you as well. And I'm so happy to hear that we remedied your problem.We appreciate your referrals. Thank you very much once again.
Best regards from the Regional paving crew and myself. Giovanni
I was late September last year 2017 we had a hard time finding a paving company, Giovanni came and gave us a quote and said he'd fit us in, in the fall... it was November he called gave me a day notice and was doing a few contractors driveways of new builds in same area...Living out of town we were unable to be there so he provided digital photos for all stages, and the crew did a fantastic job while he took photos... job very well done and great communication with Giovanni... Regional has done right by me beyond my expectations..I will recommend them to every one.
Thank You to Regional Paving and Gio.
Wow Thank you so much for the kind review. Was great working with you too. I appreciate your referrals Have a great year. Giovanni.

Thank you so very much for this kind review. And it's been a great spring like weather so as my people call I try to get out to them as soon as possible. Thank you so much and I look forward to putting that second driveway in for you probably by June. And thanks for recommending me to your friends much appreciated. :-) Cheers , talk to you soon
Collected money shotty work never cme back to repair the job..was paid in full by a charity before completed..for disabled boy..promised to come back to fix it never did.ignored numerous calls ..shameful
Hello- Thank you for your review. We find feedback priceless.
We find this review surprising as we did make recommendations to ensure a great result. The driveway was not a full excavation as suggested ...our warranty is on full excavation. Nonetheless, given the situation and our commitment to being good citizens we returned to make repairs with the understanding that the homeowners would handle the general maintenance. We value the work we do in the community and contribute when possible to help others out.
We wish you and your family the best.

We had Regional Paving pave our driveway on Sept. 15 and paid cash immediately when finished, as insisted upon by company sales rep. When my husband came home he noticed they had paved over the city water shut off valve. The city informed us this should be exposed and if an issue in the future we will be responsible for repairs. My husband and I have contacted the company numerous times to have this corrected, only for them to promise to come to fix it and not show up. No courtesy calls and they do not respond to our telephone messages. This has been so frustrating and lack of responsibility. L2H0J3
Shut of valve was 2 ft below grade. The city is responsible for there own. We did repair as promised..usually the city takes care of this.. this was corrected and resolved and should have been removed.. thank you. But these owners jumped the gun on this.

Regional Paving removed and installed my driveway on 30 April 2015. In the 4 months since the driveway is deteriorating. Whenever it rains or when I hose the driveway the aggregate is coming loose and washing away. This gives the pavement a rough look. I can kick loose the aggregate with my foot or it will come loose when a car turns the wheel. This is happening even on areas of the driveway where there is no traffic.
Internet research revealed this issue is called “RAVELING” which means an on going separation or erosion of the aggregate particles due to having a poor mix of the binder to the aggregate creating a porous asphalt. Poor compaction will also cause “RAVELING”. Compaction will provide the proper tension, making the driveway hard enough. A driveway with 4 to 10 cm thickness should have a weight class of compaction of 4 to 8t wheel load according to data found while doing internet research . Our driveway was only compacted with a tamper that has a weight class of 60 to 80 kg.
I contacted Giovanni (company representative) on 31 Aug. 15 about the issue and he said he would come later that day after 5pm to look at the driveway. Giovanni was a no show. I contacted Giovanni again on 1 Sept. 15 and he said that he already informed the office of the issue and someone will definitely call and look at the driveway. Not hearing from the company, I called late in the afternoon the next day and was connected to voicemail after a couple rings so I left a message. On the 3rd Sept. Lesley called and said he would be here to look at driveway. After looking at the driveway, Leslie said the only way to fix the issue is to seal driveway and it would cost me 200.00 to 300.00. I informed him this is a warranty issue and the company is responsible to resolve the issue. Leslie said that is not his department and I have to deal with the pavement department.
On the 4th, 8th & 9th Sept. I called the Regional Paving phone number as listed on their web site and immediately was connected to voicemail and I also sent an email through their web site. On 10th Sept. I got a call from Apex Maintenance and said he was Gary from Regional Paving. He will be here next week to look at the driveway and I’m to call late Monday morning (14th Sept.) to set date and time. I called Gary with the phone number he provided on the 14th & 15th got voicemail each time as well so I left a message each time. I even called the office number with the same result.
It seems that Regional Paving does not stand behind their product or workmanship. They say they buy their asphalt from a reputable supplier for the last 40yrs. Yet I have Raveling. They say they are licensed and bonded but my driveway was compacted with a tamper. Regional Paving is stalling and does not want to correct this issue to the satisfaction of this costumer.
Reply to Company Response. 24 Sept. 15
The expert the company sent to inspect and address the issue informed me the driveway is losing aggregate (Raveling) and the only way to stop the erosion would be to seal the driveway. He informed me that he had the proper type of sealer already loaded on the truck and he could do it now. I would have to pay an extra $300.00 to $500.00 depending on the square footage of the drive way at $20.00 per Yard. Why would the company send an expert from the sealing department for my issue of asphalt Raveling instead of the paving or asphalt dept.
Please explain why Gary (owner) was torching a spot at the bottom of the driveway that would not compact during installation and then inform us if it got worse to call and they would fix this issue. Could the asphalt be a poor mix and wouldn’t compact with the tamper. Did they know something then! Why did the Raveling start not only in that area but all over the driveway even in areas where there is no car traffic just foot traffic. I would think Regional Paving would want to know if they did received a bad mix of asphalt from their supplier. The reason I pose this question is because I know of other home owners who’s driveway was done by Regional Paving around the time ours was installed and they have Raveling issues as well. Is this coincidental?
I don’t believe this is a cosmetic issue as Giovanni stated but an issue with the mix of the asphalt or compaction or both. On top of that, the customer has to pay in order to do a test to confirm issue. The costumer has to pay to seal the driveway to stop the issue as stated by the expert they sent. Giovanni stated we were never ignored. So why did he not leave a note or call to inform us he came back personally to have a look and found we were not home, of his finding but instead posted his reply.
I will continue NOT to recommend Regional Paving to family, friends, co-workers, etc... We are only one home owner but word of mouth can travel. This is a very big expense for a home owner to undertake and to realize that you got taken by what you thought was a reputable company leaves a bad taste!
This issue was handled immediately. And is a cosmetic issue. I sent out our experts to inspect and address the issue. Compaction more than adequate. Nor reveling. This is a cosmetic issue as stated in the large print on reverse of all contracts. We were willing to remedy with a sealer as there is nothing inferior with the drive other than cosmetic. We can still provide this service. this is not warranty work but cosmetic. You were never ignored and always in contact. I personally sent you our top people. How would they get there and been aware of I didn't address this. I personally came back to see you and the drive, you were not home. But we made sure you were looked after. Asphalt is asphalt. It has stones in the mix to give it strength.
We have never had a problem with our supplier and stand firm. However if you wish to pay for core testing and prove us wrong we will still honor our warranty .. but I doubt very much there will be a finding with the product. This once again is a cosmetic issue.. it's asphalt. Just like the roads we drive and parking lots we Park on. Proper care and maintenance will give it many many years of good use. See my blog on Web site for proper care and explanations. Call us for sealer if desired before it's too late in the season.
Old asphalt was ripped out, regraded, stone compacted, and paved. All work was done quickly and efficiently. We are so pleased with the quality of service and professionalism that Regional Paving offers to the Niagara area. I would confidently recommend them for any commercial or residential work that you need done.
