HOMEOWNERS BEING OVERCHARGED FOR DRIVEWAY PAVING: OPP
7/10/2018 11:24:37 AM


Dufferin OPP is warning of a paving scam.


Police allege a paving company called 'Q-Line Paving' is completing jobs but charging more than what was agreed too.


In one case, police say while the job was done properly, a homeowner was charged $5,500 more than the $10,500 he agreed to before work started.


According to police, the company is offering low cost paving because it has a "surplus" of asphalt from roadwork. It gives an estimate and completes the job without paperwork or written quotes. Q-Line then paves more than the agreed area and charges substantially more than the quote.


Police offer these tips if your getting home renovations:

  • Always read over thoroughly all written contracts before signing them. Get a family member to review them.

  • Get references from other customers to ensure quality of the work.

  • Do some research before you pay for product or service.

  • Thoroughly understand what product or service you are purchasing, the process any guarantees and complaint process if you do not receive the product or service you paid for.

  • Inspect all work prior to making payment and ensure work has been completed properly and that the service you received was what you had paid for in your business contract.

  • Legitimate business people will be happy to provide you with information on their services.

  • Always be careful about providing confidential personal information especially banking and credit card details unless you are certain that the company is legitimate.
