Very impressed with Black Tar's level of customer service and care. When my husband calls, the phone is picked up immediately in a friendly manner. Their customer service has been on point from the beginning to the very end. Special shout-out to Allie for always keeping us informed, and to the paving team for an awesome driveway.

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!
