Cheapest pricing in the public market equates to poor quality
Choosing a contractor for asphalt paving is often a difficult choice for consumers. Traditionally most home and business owners obtain 3 quotes for an asphalt or concrete project. The bidding process for public roadways and many commercial institutions is far different then the bidding process for homes and small businesses. City streets, public highways, parking lots like Walmart, for instance, are first examined by engineers. The engineer then creates a list of what is required for the job to be completed. These types of bids list exactly what a contractor must do and at what quantities. In essence, the engineering firm creates the apples to apples bidding system and no bidder can suggest or do anything outside of the prescribed scope of work. Those types of bid are sealed and opened all at once on a specified day and time. Game, set, match, the lowest bidder wins.
