The Hamburg Garage (The Detroit Garage Auto Family)
COMMERCIAL PARKING LOT
The Hamburg Garage is a 100-year-old repair facility that has changed hands a few times over the years, but has always remained, and still is, a small family-owned business. The parking lot at the shop had deteriorated so severely that it was becoming a safety concern on top of the aesthetic issues that obviously brought with it. I had multiple companies bid the full tear-out and replacement of the lot and I learned a lot about paving in the process—but most of what I learned was from Matt, and he was right about everything. Sommerset was not the cheapest of the estimates I received, but I contracted Sommerset to do the work because of the confidence in the job being done right that Matt instilled. Throughout the process and with all the curveballs 100 years of neglect can bring to a property, Matt kept me updated and aware of what was happening and why. Sommerset’s crew was professional, helpful, and efficient while they worked to ensure our clients and business could continue with daily needs. The result is a perfect lot my team and I can take pride in earning compliments from new and old clients. Sommerset has solidified its place as our “go-to” company for our small and large paving needs. If you want it done right, the first time, call Sommerset. Stop by the shop and look for yourself. These guys are good!

COMMERCIAL PARKING LOT
With our construction company being located outside of the Ann Arbor area, in Colorado, in the past we've had difficulty for various reasons, finding a good asphalt paving company in the Ann Arbor area. This was not at all true when we contacted Sommerset Paving in January 2020 for a project to be done in the summer! Every aspect of the project, before, during, and after went very smoothly. Matt and Sue were always prompt, professional and proficient in providing the bid, any paperwork involved including the waivers, change orders and billing. Keith and his crew did an excellent job on the asphalt paving and striping of the Zeta House's parking lot. We will definitely contact Sommerset Paving the next time we need an Ann Arbor bid done.
Atwell for Sun Communities
As a Project/Construction Manager for Atwell, one of my responsibilities is to procure bids and manage the construction for Sun Communities who have numerous manufactured housing developments throughout the United States. In the past few years, Sommerset Paving has frequently been awarded multiple projects. I know I can always trust Matt and Sue to get me the proposals very quickly, and know that their price will be competitive and fair. I also know they will make the job happen as soon as we need it, and it will be done with as little impact to the residents as possible. Whether it's an asphalt resurfacing or a full depth asphalt removal and replacement, the Sommerset crew does an excellent job. The projects consistently come in on time and budget, and we are very pleased with their work. Often, my client has smaller essential concrete and minor grading work needed which they do well also. They have done jobs for us in Ypsilanti, Ann Arbor Flint/Fenton, Jackson, and Toledo/Sylvania. I've never had one problem with their work. This makes my life much easier and means I'll continue to work with them in the future.

North Ann Arbor Homeowner's Association
We recently needed to replace the main road for our subdivision. After soliciting bids from several companies, we decided upon Sommerset Paving. They provided an honest assessment of our road, detailed information on the process involved in replacement, as well as issues that could arise that could increase our cost. They asked a fair price for the work to be performed and did an exceptional and very professional job. The project came in almost exactly at budget and ahead of schedule. Moreover, we found the people working at Sommerset Paving to be friendly and responsive. We could not be more satisfied and I would highly recommend you consult them for any project you are considering. Even if you do not choose them, you will learn a lot in the process.

I want to share my recent experience with Sommerset Paving. After getting quotes from three paving contractors for replacing my driveway, I chose Sommerset Paving which was neither the least nor most expensive quote. Dawn came out to talk with me about the project and made several useful suggestions. Both she and the quote were very professional and won my confidence. I also appreciated that this is a business run by women, unusual for a paving contractor.. We had a few scheduled days to begin work that didn't work out due to weather. Dawn contacted me each time with the revised plan so I always knew what to expect. Throughout the project Dawn spent a lot of time here on site, to be sure the work was progressing as it should, checking in with me as needed and with the crew. Coordination with the city inspectors was absolutely seamless. Each step of the job was done in a timely way, and communication was always timely and complete. In addition the work crew were always busy, but nonetheless friendly and answered the few questions that I had. I do not hesitate to recommend Sommerset Paving. This was a good experience, and I am enjoying my driveway more than I would have thought possible.

We got delayed one day coming home (our flight back was canceled, it was connecting through Houston). We absolutely love the new driveway! It’s better than we imagined, and we’re so glad to have it done. Thank you for a beautiful job and a pleasant experience. If I can get in touch with the neighbors about sealing the remainder of the shared driveway, I’ll let you know. Thanks again, our new driveway brings us joy every time we look at it.

I am 110% satisfied with the superior job that was done on my driveway. I didn't imagine it could turn out so great. I've been a licensed builder for 25+ years, and I've never seen a paving crew that was so professional and did such excellent work. Your company is very reputable which means a lot to me as a builder and homeowner. There are many companies that skimp on the product and don't deliver the thickness and 2 layer process that is promised and then when you are not satisfied, they will not stand by their work. I couldn't believe how well it turned out, it's almost too nice to drive on. I live in the city of Romulus, in Wayne County and the Wayne Country Road Commission does a very good job and Sommerset Paving does as well as them. Keith, the foreman was highly professional and the entire crew was awesome. Neighbors are taking pictures of the driveway and two of them want bids for Sommerset to do their driveways too. I have another driveway that I want them to re-do next spring, that's how good they are. The attention to detail was unbelievable and very much appreciated.
Patrick in Dexter
After telling a customer because of the excessive heat, they needed to keep vehicles off their newly paved asphalt driveway a minimum of 3 days, he very kindly replied "The timing is perfect for this, we leave as a family tomorrow morning and won’t return until Monday.
We could not be happier with the driveway, you guys did a great job! I spoke with one crew member and he was very friendly. Please tell them all they did a great job. I always try to keep my business local and this time it really paid off. Thank you!"
I think I speak for myself, my wife, and my neighbors when I say you all did a great job. The work itself was done well and the crew that you had out to our house were great. Keith, the sales estimator and paving foreman was very professional and knowledgeable, from the time he provided the free estimate until the job was complete. We just purchased another property down the street that needs cement work done on the front porch and approach. We have contacted Sommerset to do that bid also.

ASPHALT REPLACEMENT | SPRINKLER SYSTEM REPAIR
Just a quick note to let you know how satisfied I and the other board members are with the work you and your crew performed for us here. At $38,000, it was a big project for us, but the roads needed the asphalt replacement. and the underground water issue needed to be addressed. The drain tiles and sod installation you performed and sprinkler system repair all are working property, and the attention to making the affected lawns look good when finished was appreciated. The asphalt work is smooth, professionally done, and was completed as scheduled. I was surprised and pleased at the quality of the equipment you used, and noted how efficiently your crew used time. The impact to our community was minimal.
In summation, I would recommend your company to anyone.

ASPHALT REPLACEMENT | CONCRETE CURBING | SEAL COATING AND CRACK FILLING
I have owned Knights Restaurant for many years so I have experienced my fair share of contractors in all industries. I have worked with staff at Sommerset Paving on various projects in the past five years. I have never had anything but a great experience with Sommerset’s employees from the beginning bid process through to completion. This is especially reassuring in an industry where there are far too many "fly by night companies". I felt like I was their only client. On the job site, it was obvious that the project manager highly valued and respected his workers which is rare to see. This loyalty is returned by the employees as is exhibited in their dedication to each project. When a problem arises, responsibility is taken, a solution is given and then the solution is promptly followed through on. There is no finger pointing, stalling or belittling of anyone that was involved. I cannot recommend Sommerset Paving more highly.
Asphalt Overlay | Concrete Sidewalk
As an Ann Arbor business owner, I've needed work done on my parking lots on more than one occasion. One of the reasons we continue to choose Sommerset Paving is because of the awesome customer service we receive. They promptly return phone calls and answer any of my questions. The foreman and his crew show up on time every day and do a great job. The project manager did a fantastic job pulling together everything I was looking for and then some. We are definitely recommending Sommerset Paving to anyone that needs concrete or asphalt work done.

If you are looking for a company whose team doesn't just ''talk the talk", the project manager, foreman and crew at Sommerset Paving is a winning combination. The entire team at Sommerset Paving is involved in making sure the process is a smooth one. The process is an impressive one from the start- they email your bid with a video showing what will be involved in the work. We at Cueter Chrysler couldn't be more pleased or impressed with how our parking lot tuned out!

The project manager and his crew at Sommerset Paving were all excellent. They were always on time and completed the project in a timely manner. He answered my questions and gave me his expert opinion. I would definitely hire them again.
Sue, Louise -
Thanks very much to you both, and to the whole Sommerset team, for a great overlay job at 2033 Norwood Road in Ann Arbor. We arrived home late last week to a great looking driveway; no issues, no mess, no problems. The team delivered on our entire punch list, and the attention to detail was solid throughout. Everything I had previously read about your team and the quality of your work proved to be true - count me as yet another satisfied customer.
Thanks again, Mark
