Residential driveways can be one of the most expensive exterior investments we can make on our homes.

Residential driveways can be one of the most expensive exterior investments we can make on our homes.
Driveways are also a project that if not done correctly, can be an absolute nightmare.

Inexperienced and dishonest contractors can turn what would seemingly be a simple, routine job into a headache with ongoing problems.

Unfortunately, the driveway business is riddled with inexperienced and unethical companies. The driveway industry is considered one of the most fraudulent industries in the country. More people lose money to inexperienced and unscrupulous driveway contractors than almost any other type of home improvement service out there. Homeowners have reported driveway scams from every state in the country.

Why?

It’s a business that is relatively easy to get into, and in most cases requires little to no investment. Completion of the work is typically less than 1 or 2 days since it's relatively simple work.

Consequently, this makes it easy for contractors to get in, get out and get paid fast. Unfortunately, however, by the time we realize we've received a poor quality job, it's too late. They're already long gone with our hard earned money.

To avoid this from happening, arming yourself with the right knowledge and tools to make sure your driveway installation, repair or maintenance project goes smoothly can significantly reduce the risk. A driveway, when appropriately completed, is something we should have to think about only every few years.

That's where AllAboutDriveways.com comes in!
