|All About Driveways was founded and developed by Consumer Advocate Patrick Mattingley who brings nearly 2 decades of experience to the driveway industry.
Patrick started AllAboutDriveways.com in an effort to not only help homeowners connect with honest and trustworthy companies, but also share his knowledge and expertise in the industry in an independent, unbiased atmosphere.
Patrick’s unique, neutral, 3rd party position allows him to share secrets here on AllAboutDriveways.com that most companies wouldn’t dare to share simply because he’s not trying to earn anyone’s business! Patrick has zero interest in whomever you choose for your project whether you research and obtain estimates from companies on your own or choose from his list of recommended companies!
“When I first got into the business, it amazed me at how many people we’re committed to having a nice, quality driveway that looks just as beautiful as the rest of their home!”
“Unfortunately however, the industry is full of dishonest and unethical contractors who are out there running their businesses with one goal in mind: To maximize profits at the expense of quality and reputation!”
Patrick found a large number of contractors and companies that were operating without putting one thought into building a long term repeat business. Instead, they’re only goal was to make as much money as possible in as short amount of time as possible and then once the gig was up, either go out of business and move to another state or start a new business with a new name.
“I saw many companies working with a “Get in and get out fast” business plan perpetuated by short term greed. I saw multiple examples of people who lost hundreds of dollars, some even several thousand dollars, in one single project from unethical contractors simply because they weren’t armed with the knowledge necessary to challenge them properly and ask the right questions! It was very frustrating to see people being taken such advantage of.”
“My job here at AllAboutDriveways.com is to lay all of the facts out on the table about the proper driveway installation and maintenance techniques so that any homeowner can quickly learn the right questions to ask their contractor to ensure their going to get a good, quality job that will last.”
