"We had our driveway resurfaced by Gravel Driveway Services on October 6, 2022. The crew arrived as promised, and at all times, we’re polite and respectful. Operating 3 large machines, it was a joy to watch them work….very precise, orchestrated movements, no damage to walkways or garage.
The area was cleanly excavated, all the weeds removed, then the base compacted. With economy of movement, the recycled asphalt was spread, levelled, and the edges shaped neatly.
After being compacted, I was concerned with the stability of the product, as it still seemed a bit soft. Chris assured me that the coming rain would stiffen it right up, and that’s indeed what happened. It’s a great solution for our very steep driveway.
Thank you to Chris and all his crew, for a great job and their patience with my husband."
"My wife and I were delighted with the result achieved by GDS on our rural driveway and parking area. The team was terrific and a wonder to behold in action! Smooth as butter. It was a difficult job involving awkward access but Chris, Clark and the guys got it figured out. What an improvement and in such short order! Professional and courteous service like we rarely see. Thanks to GDS!"
"We had our driveway redone at a previously owned property by Chris and his team and it turned out beautifully. So we wouldn’t even consider using anyone else for our new house. They are punctual, friendly and the price is excellent. Chris came out several times to help us figure out our new driveway design which we also really appreciated. Great company!"
"I was referred to Chris and Gravel Driveway Services from a co-worker who had used their services and was very satisfied. Chris was quick to respond to me and determine what my needs were for my driveway. The quote was easy to understand and very clear as to what work was being completed. When it came time to do the work it was done on the day we had organized and on time despite uncooperative weather. They stayed exact to the budget and the final result actually exceeded my expectations. Gravel Driveway Services are a highly professional team and I would definitely refer their services to anyone and use them again myself. "

"We couldn't be more pleased with our new drive. It was interesting to see how well the drive coped with the heavy rains we've had recently, which was an issue we were hoping to solve. The crew were all professional and worked hard to fit in with our timing, which was just before a large family party. The drive received a lot of glowing comments from the guests."
"This is a positive review for Gravel Driveway Services. I had a very long and much neglected driveway in need of restoration at our country property. Our major issues were poor drainage of water from three ponds and mud on the surface that was deposited by farm machinery. It was nearly impassible on a dry weather day much less a rainy one.
After emailing four local companies I chose to invite Gravel Driveway Services to quote the job along with 2 other companies. My dealings were direct with Chris, the owner of the company. His follow-up communication and communication was impeccable. Chris' explanations were clear and simple quickly put me at ease that I was dealing with a professional.
The final outcome exceeded my expectation and I feel I got excellent value and superior service from Chris and the team at Gravel Driveway Services. I can't emphasize enough how good of an experience I had with this company."

"We were very happy with Chris and his crew for the work they did on the driveway and parking lot for our commercial property. Very responsive, professional and easy to deal with."
"Chris and his team built us a sound and gracefully-shaped driveway in record time and on budget. It was gratifying to watch an enthusiastic team at work, and we have already recommended him to friends."
"We are extremely pleased with the excellent work on our 2 driveways. Rick and crew were easy to work with and the results were done in a quick professional manner. Great Job!"

"We have had quite a few comments on how great it looks. I'll be out of your busness cards soon. On an other note, I just wanted to say how refreshing it is to deal with a company that takes costomer service seriously.
You were here when you said and your crew were friendly to deal with. Your follow texts are appreciated. Thanks for a job well done."
"My wife and I are very impressed with your customer service. My wife said The workers were very respectable and very pleasant. It looks great Chris thank you. What a difference from a day ago."
"Gravel Driveway Services did an exceptional job at a very reasonable price. We were initially a bit nervous about the idea and having to choose a contractor but the whole process was smooth and hassle-free. Great communication and super professional/nice team. Was very impressed with the attention to detail on the edging. The recycled asphalt was definitely the best decision for us. Many thanks and kudos to you folks!"

"We had many problems over the years trying to keep our winding, gravel driveway from eroding as a result of heavy precipitation. In 2014 we contacted Chris to give us an estimate and explain to us how his recycled asphalt product could keep our driveway not only looking good but free from erosion since it is on an incline and subject to the force of running water. We were impressed by Chris’ efficient, knowledgeable manner from the moment we met him. He explained the benefits of using recycled asphalt and gave us addresses for us to see what other jobs he had done. We checked out those addresses and decided to go ahead. We have been thrilled with our decision and loving the clean, sharp look of the asphalt. We were equally thrilled to see how well the driveway held up and continued to look good no matter how much precipitation. We had a minor issue with flash flooding and contacted Chris. He responded immediately and came to take a look and do the necessary repair. His level of responsiveness and willingness to guarantee his work, coupled with his integrity and that of his crew has made it an absolute pleasure dealing with Chris. We couldn’t be happier with the results and grateful knowing there is a company out there that truly knows what they are doing from beginning to end."
"Just had our new driveway done by Gravel Driveway services and are beyond thrilled with the whole experience. Not only does the driveway look fantastic, but Chris and his crew were wonderful to work with. Chris returned my initial call and came out to quote quickly; explained all the options and processs to me and even managed to get it finished in a crazy quick turnaround. His crew was on time, professional and efficient. They all went above and beyond to make us happy and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them all to anyone. Thanks Chris, we hope to have another driveway for you in the future!"
"I am so pleased with how beautiful my driveway looks! Chris has a lot of knowledge and experience with recycled asphalt driveways. He took the time to prepare the layout of the drive to make sure the finished product would look its best. The price was good. The value was excellent and the job was done on time as promised."
"We recently hired Chris at Gravel Driveway Services to do our driveway. Right from the beginning it was a pleasant experience. Chris and his men were professional in every way. We were thrilled with the result and the service. We would highly recommend Chris and Gravel Driveway Services."
"Just a short note to thank you and your team for making our driveway new again after the issues we had with the pitting in the late spring due to the heavy rain. They arrived on the day we were leaving for a three-week vacation. When we returned, everything was done and perfect. Much appreciated!"

"Hi Chris I just wanted to take the opportunity to let you know how thrilled I am with the finished driveway. The guys finished up today and did an absolutely amazing job. Your crew was courteous, helpful and always professional. You should be very proud of them, they represent your company well. Thanks "
"I contacted Chris winter 2019 and he came out April 1, 2019 and provided me with a quote for my entire driveway and also broke down the cost if I only wanted to do a portion of the driveway.
I didn't contact him again until summer 2020 and he honoured the quote from 2019 and came out and marked off the areas and walked me through the process especially around some drainage concerns and how the recycled asphalt compacts over time with rain and heat.
I did find one other company in 2019 that was comparable to Gravel Driveway Services, but they didn't service the Oshawa area. I mentioned the quote to the other company and he said that was a great price and he wouldn't be able to do better, even if he did service the Oshawa area.
Rick and his crew arrived on the scheduled day and on time and Rick answered any questions I had.
A month later, I had a few questions and I called Chris and he said that when Rick was in the Oshawa area he would take a look at some of the areas of the driveway that hadn't compacted yet. Rick ended up rolling the driveway again. As I have a larger residential driveway, not all the areas have compacted totally, but I have been reassured by Chris and Rick that will happen over time.
The cost of my driveway from traditional paving was a 1/3 of the price and I am happy with the results.
I know that if I have any questions or if an issue were to arise, that I can call Chris at Gravel Driveway Services and he will assist me.
I would recommend this company for anyone looking for an alternative to traditional paving, Chris and Rick are knowledgeable, friendly and provide great customer service. "
"My wife and I retained Gravel Driveway Services to resurface our considerable roadway system on our 32 acre property. Chris and his team did an excellent job and we heartily recommend them!
Chris made excellent recommendations for what was best to resurface, was extremely professional at all times and focused heavily on understanding our needs and meeting or exceeding our expectations. They were prompt, and fulfilled all the written and verbal commitments well. Because our property was under construction with a good deal of traffic at the time the work was done, Chris had to return some time later to re-roll some of the surface and redo other areas. He returned as promised and once again did an excellent job.
The asphalt itself is perfect for our needs. It has a rich look, is firm and much more long lasting than the gravel surface we had in the past, but has an appealing texture which fits well with the look and feel of our property.
Thanks for a job well done!"

"My family and I are very satisfied with our new recycled gravel driveway from Gravel Driveway Services. Chris and the entire crew were a genuine pleasure to work with. They answered all of our questions and their advice and recommendations were based on long experience and always conscientious of our budget. A definite pleasure working with a team that delivers! We have no hesitation highly recommending Gravel Driveway Services for whatever your driveway needs."
"Gravel Driveway Services is a very competent and customer friendly business. Appointments made with you are kept punctually. Their estimates are accurate, their work timely and efficient and the finished product is most satisfactory. My gently sloping laneway used to be prone to wash-outs in heavy rainstorms - an aggravating problem that always required immediate repairs, just so you could drive in. No more. That headache no longer exists thanks to GRAVEL DRIVEWAY SERVICES. Now the old bed is solid and durable so that I am happy and very satisfied. I wish other aggravations could be resolved so nicely. The material they use compacts so effectively that I have no worries about my driveway anymore. I am delighted to have made use of their services and I highly recommend them."
