We had some original difficulties with the job (it happens), and the crew at Black Tar did a fantastic job working with us to address our concerns and find an acceptable solution. The final product was fantastic. The crew that finished our driveway this fall was quick and efficient without sacrificing quality, ensuring they kept us informed at every step of the way. Great product, even better commitment and customer service from Black Tar!

I was helped with amazing customer service and was amazed with the great quality to top it up. I normally don't experience both with other companies. The best part is when there was a repair needed and claimed it under their warranty, there was no arguing or back and forth. They politely heard me out and showed up right away and fixed everything under the warranty for free. I would highly recommend!
