Local experts provide peace-of-mind

The driveway needs to be paved, the landscaper is bringing in a load of flagstone, and the outdoor kitchen is being delivered. So who should be on-site first? Scheduling a project can be a nightmare, but it doesn’t have to be.

Collaborating amiably with other local contractors is just one of the ways Ital Paving sets itself above the competition. “We want to give our clients convenience and peace of mind,” says owner Niki Pickett. Being flexible and coordinating times and dates directly with other trades takes the stress off their mutual clients.

“That’s why we’re your local paving experts: we know the communities we live and work in,” she says. “We’ve built great relationships with our fellow contractors and it’s beneficial to everyone.”

While that’s a great bonus to their clientele, being located in Simcoe and Muskoka and the surrounding areas – with homes, cottages, and offices in those regions – means they understand the terrain and environment. This is essential to creating quality asphalt driveways, pathways, and commercial parking areas.

For nearly 40 years, Ital Paving has been building a reputation for being fair and honest, and meeting deadlines. Their team of certified professionals is fully insured and brings years of experience to every job.

“We’re not a fly-by-night company from out of town who you can’t count on to guarantee the work,” says Niki. “We’re trained, licenced, and insured professionals with decades of paving experience who live, work, and play in your community.”

Ital Paving offers competitive pricing based on the real value of the work being done, and they only quote on the work you need. Niki warns that she’s seen people get scammed by paying cash for too-good-to-be-true pricing or being upsold on unnecessary materials by commission-based representatives.

“I personally quote all our jobs and I’m not a salesperson,” says Niki. “I started in this business as a labourer and learned the business inside and out by doing the job. When I quote a project, it’s an accurate quote with no upselling or cost-cutting measures.”

Plus, Niki is a big supporter of community organizations: whether it’s local sports teams, hospital foundations, or others, Ital Paving gives back.

“When you choose to support a local business, you’re supporting your community at large.”
