With over 22 years of experience and more than 1000 asphalt driveways under our belt, we understand what our clients want and how to deliver beyond their expectations.

Asphalt, also known as bitumen, has long been used for roads and runways globally. There’s a good reason for that. It’s strong, hard wearing and flexible. There’s no denying the appeal of a great, dark, asphalt driveways that have been professionally finished in high-quality asphalt, especially when a unique feature edging has been used.

Did you know that 48% of home owners said they would not hire their contractor again, in a recent survey. They sighted:

  • Lack of adequate communication, leaving them anxious and concerned
  • Their expectations, and the contractor’s promises, were not met
  • They were unhappy with the end product, but felt pressured to pay for less than acceptable work

At XL Asphalt Melbourne, we’re playing the long game. We want you to love our work so you’ll suggest us to your friends and family – that’s how we’ve built our business over the last 22 years.

There are a few key values we operate by when constructing asphalt driveways:

You’re Protected

All customers receive a 5-year guarantee on our work. This is the longest guarantee we’ve found in the Melbourne asphalting industry. How can we afford to offer this guarantee? We can because of our superior workmanship and experience in asphalt paving. Of course, we also protect our workers and the public via public liability insurance on all jobs.

No Anxiety

You’ll deal with Chris directly. That means you can give him a call, on his mobile, and get an instant update on where your project is at. You’ll deal with Chris from start to finish and we do not sub-contract out any of the work (we have to protect our reputation and quality of work). Don’t forget to check out our Testimonials page for some genuine words from our clients.

Peace of Mind

It’s important you know exactly what you’re getting and what outcome to expect. That’s why we always provide detailed written quotes that specify the amount of materials to be used, man hours required, the edging to be applied and the timeframe. It’s the materials that many companies will skimp on, as a way to cut their costs. The thickness and mix of the asphalt is what determines how hardwearing and long lasting our asphalt driveways will be. As mentioned above, we’re in this for the long haul, that’s why we do thorough site inspections in order to work out exactly how thick your asphalt should be, and then we use that amount.

Why are we making such a big deal about being trustworthy, honest and providing a superior product and service?

It’s because there are some bad operators that are making a mockery of our industry and fleecing the public. If anyone turns up at your door saying they have some “leftover asphalt” and is prepared to install asphalt driveways “for cheap”, you may want to politely refuse and read the following. This article is by the Better Business Bureau in the USA, and covers the things to look out for when spotting a dodgy operator. Also, if you get a chance, check out the Stop Travelling Con Men Facebook page and their website which shows you the scammers identified in your suburb.
