Our Customer Feedback

We take pride in providing our customers with the best paving experience. Here is what they have to say.

"I would like to compliment Trosia and his crew who did this job a couple of weeks ago. They worked quickly, efficiently, there was minimum disruption to me and the general clearing of site at the end of the job was excellent.

I can recommend SA Paving without reservation.

It has been a pleasure dealing with your company."
Mary Casson
"Thanks for good workmanship. It is now almost 3 years later and you still came out to redo a small area of brick paving that became uneven. The rest of the area still looks as good as the day you finished it.."
Marius Wessels
"SA Paving recently did the paving at my house and BOY am I IMPRESSED! From beginning to end everything ran smoothly and the job was completed prior to the estimated time.

Allowances were made to work around my dogs as I had no-where to put them. All in all, there is not a single person I dealt with at SA Paving who did not knock my socks off with their exceptional customer service.

I am so pleased that I decided to use SA Paving rather than a few others who’s quotes may have been slightly less than that from SA Paving, but they certainly did not put in the added effort to secure my work or provide the finishing touches which SA Paving have done."
Veronica King - Cape Town
"I am very impressed with the work SA Paving have done on our driveway. It looks stunning. Lucky and his crew are excellent, extremely hard working and very professional. It was a pleasant experience to have the guys on site."
