“The sealers—I love them. Collegiate Sealers & Paving deserves an A.”

“Collegiate Sealers & Paving came back in the spring. I had an excellent experience. No complaints at all.”

“They were very good, very professional, and in and out in about eight hours. They completely removed the old driveway and put in a new driveway. They didn't estimate the time. They just gave me the price to do the job and told me it would take about a day. An A grade would be perfect because I have no issues, and I am very happy with the product.”

“They did an excellent job. It was a very good team that came out, and I'm very satisfied. They did my driveway and two of my neighbors' at the same time. They're definitely an A-grade company.”

“They did a good job. They did work on a property we don't own anymore. I remember that they came in and that the scheduling was good. It looks good. I looked at it once. But it's not like I use that driveway ever. I think their work was excellent.”

“Collegiate Sealers couldn't have been better. They gave me a price, they held to the price, and I didn't have to call them back. A lot of businesses, unfortunately you have to have callbacks because their work is not done right the first time. So they were excellent, and I don't know how many months ago that was—it's probably been six months or so, but the work is showing no signs of deterioration at all. It's supposed to last many years, so I'm not surprised at that. The people who did the work the last time on our driveway, you could see it starting to break down a little bit early. I would recommend them to anybody. An A grade sounds right.”

“They did a good job in a timely way. They paved a parking area by the house. It took all day. It was in line with their estimate. I'd give them an A.”

“They showed up on time, they did the work efficiently, and they cleaned up all their mess—they didn't leave anything behind. It took about half a day. I think my husband picked them, but I'm not sure how he did it. They've done a lot of work around our neighborhood.”

“I liked that they did a really good job and that they did it on the day they said they were going to do it. That's what I look for. They replaced our blacktop driveway. It was a one-day job. I chose them because they did another job in the neighborhood, and they had done a great job there. I'd call them A grade.”

“Collegiate Sealers did a good job. They showed up on time, and they cleaned up after themselves. They redid our asphalt driveway. It was a daylong job. I'd grade them A.”

“I liked that it was quick, it was done quickly, and it was done well. We have sold the house since then, though. They were doing a driveway. We had a recommendation from our neighbor to use them.”

“It was all good. I would give them an A across the board. They did my driveway.”

“They're very responsive, and they kind of looked over everything and gave good advice. They repaired an existing driveway.”

“I had a problem, and they corrected it without any questions asked. I met with the owner of the company first, and this is what he said to me because I was looking to redo my whole driveway and I had some people give me quotes. He said, 'I am not going to put my reputation on the line for doing work that's unnecessary,' and that's what sold me to the company; plus, they came recommended to me by one of my clients. They were an A. They did everything they were supposed to do, and I would definitely use them again.”

“They were prompt, they did a professional job, and good clean up. They did the driveway. I chose them based on their availability. An A grade is right.”

“I liked that they were thorough and quick. They were doing my driveway. It took a day. I chose them because they were recommended by family members. An A grade is fine.”

“I liked that they showed up on time and did the job. They did the driveway and did a very good job cleaning up afterward.”

“They did some asphalt replacement and sealing. They came out, they gave an estimate, they stuck with their estimate, and they did a good job on time. It was multi-day. They had to replace the asphalt, and they had to wait two months to come out and seal it. I chose them based on recommendations from people in the neighborhood.”

“They arrived on time, they charged what they said they were going to charge, and they did a bang-up job. Last year we had the driveway replaced. We had one of our neighbors that had used them several years ago and was pleased with them, has them back to do the driveway sealing every year and is still satisfied, so that was a big plus on their side. The cleanup was fine. There was no problem with that at all.”

“What had happened is they had done my driveway completely, resealed the whole thing. Then there was rain, and so there was water that was standing because of the incline at which they had done it, so they came back and tried to fix it. It didn't work, so then they redid the entire driveway. They pretty much did it twice, so I did appreciate that, and I didn't pay any more than what I had originally been told.”

“They did a good job. They did what they said they were going to do, when they said they were going to do it. They did a patch for us. We chose them because they were one of the few companies and do that size of job, and I had used them in the past to seal the driveway. An A sounds right to me.”

“I was satisfied with the job they did. They came when they promised, they seemed to do a professional job—all the guys who were here did. So they finished on time, I guess, finished in one day, and kept to the estimate. For a sealer I would probably use them, but I sure don't need it. An A is fine.”

“They did good work, and they showed up when they were supposed to and didn't leave a mess. They put in a new driveway. It took one day. We chose them based on recommendations from other people.”

“They did good work, and they were efficient, clean, and polite. They redid our driveway. I think we had a reference from one of our neighbors to use them. I would say they get an A.”

“They showed up, did their work, and cleaned up. They do a really good job. They fixed the asphalt for us, and they did some sealing for the whole driveway. I had worked with them before, so I didn't want to work with anyone else.”

“They redid the driveway. They did a great job, they replaced the driveway, did it in one day—everything they said. It was great.”

“Collegiate Sealers & Paving was fantastic, and their professionalism was good. They did a driveway replacement. They had been doing sealing work for me for many years, so when it came time to replace the driveway, there was a level of trust.”

“Working with Collegiate has been a very positive experience. They are timely and efficient, and they do what they say they are going to do. They repaved my driveway, and the work area looked fine after they left. I would give them an A rating. We have been working with the company for years, and the driveway came out perfect.”

“They redid my driveway. They were timely, they did a good job, and they cleaned up everything when they left. I chose them because they usually seal the blacktop on my driveway. They were excellent; they even did things I didn't expect them to do.”

“The work Collegiate Sealers did was excellent. They did my driveway. I didn't have to clean up after them, and they didn't have to come back. I would give them an A+ rating.”

“Collegiate Sealers & Paving did work for me, and they're supposed to come back this spring and put a sealant on it, but that doesn't happen for a couple months or so. They came in, did the estimate, and came on the day of the work to put down what they promised. They did what they promised—they did everything that they said they were going to do. I would give them an A grade.”

“Collegiate Sealers serviced my driveway. They replaced the asphalt and sealed it. The cleanup was excellent. I would give them an A rating.”

“Collegiate Sealers is very good. I'd give them a high mark.”

“Collegiate Sealers coats the driveway for us. The workers were A+. We didn't have any difficulty with the company. They come through the neighborhood yearly. I would give them an A+ grade.”

“I've used Collegiate Sealers quite a few times. I had a couple of cracks I needed them to address, and they took care of those correctly, so it was a good experience. All the technicians are very professional, and they're very courteous. They didn't do a rush job. It was money well spent. I would give them an A+.”

“Collegiate did asphalt driveway sealing. We have used them before, and they are an A+ company.”

“Collegiate Sealers & Paving was great. It was fine. They came and did the job, it looked good, and they were done. They were great, professional, and easy. I had no worries. I would give them an A grade.”

“They sealed the driveway. It was done very neatly—they came on time and took care of it without any issues. This was my first time using them, and I think they're the type of company I would use again. They responded to my request in a timely fashion, and they were able to do the job in the same manner. I'd give them an A grade.”

“They're good. I had no problems at all. I would grade them an A.”

“Collegiate Sealers sealed my driveway last year. It was a positive experience.”

“Collegiate Sealers did a standard driveway sealing. This was not my first time using them; I've used them in the past. They have earned my repeat business because they arrive on time and they do what we ask them to do. Their cleanup is good as well. I would give them an A.”

“What Collegiate Sealers did was fine—they did what I asked them to do. They did a sealer, and it needs to be resurfaced every year, since it just lasts through the winter. Every summer and spring, I need to get it done again. I have been calling on them for that. I made up my mind this year that I was going to ask them to take the process a step further by having them not just seal it, but take all the cracks out, too. I would give them an A rating.”

“Collegiate Sealers did a great job sealing my driveway. They were very professional and came when they said they would. They were meticulous—everything was very, very well done, and the cleanup was excellent. They are very professional, and I'd certainly recommend them. I'd give them an A+.”
