Very happy with how this project turned out. We’re usually pretty fussy when it comes to getting renovations done mainly because of how unresponsive contractors are, but Black Tar always picked up my calls within a few seconds, which made this whole process such a good experience. Overall, the customer service was great and the paving job was just as good!

Aziz and his team did a great job on my driveway, I got an infrared and patch and a sealing. Much cheaper than full paving and it looks great.

I originally had some complications with the estimate, I had 4 neighbours that requested an estimate but 3 were provided. I contacted their customer success team, they did a great job rescheduling the salesman to provide my fourth neighbour with an estimate within 2 business days. The price is fair and the job looks fantastic! Thank you Black Tar!!

I heard about Black Tar from several neighbours and friends. They are usually very busy which I guess is a good indication of their service. I got a quote in 2019 but they were already fully booked for the year, so I decided to wait another year and got another quote in 2020. Beginning to end, I now understand why they are recommended by many. The sales process with fantastic, the prep team was courteous and organized, the paving team was just as good as the rest of them. I too now will start recommending Black Tar. Thank you Remi, Brittany, and Sean.
