We, at Webster Presbyterian Church, used Ruston Paving to repave our church parking lot. From the onset to completion, it was clear the entire crew was set on doing a quality job. In fact, it was suggested to us that we defer the job from late last fall to this year to ensure temperatures were sufficient for the asphalt to have good integrity. - Clearly, the customer's interests were at heart.
