Pavers Help Victim of Scam

In the rough and tumble world of big-city construction, companies are often perceived as having a hard, tough exterior.

When Western Paving Co. heard about the exploitation of a Golden, Colorado, senior citizen by a phony paving operation, it proved that at least this company has a warm and caring inside.

After reading an article in the Aug. 19 edition of the Rocky Mountain News, which chronicled how Joe Spitz had $7800 stolen by a bogus paving company. Western Paving Vice President Rick Hobbs offered to pave Spitz's driveway at no cost.

Project Manager Jeff Gross met with Spitz Aug. 21 to determine the necessary repairs. According to Gross, the "travelers" - a term used to describe the roaming paving and roofing con artists - simply dumped a load of asphalt and only partially compacted it, leaving Spitz with a nearly unusable driveway. Additionally, the botched job caused water to drain towards, rather than away from, Spitz's home.

Western Paving scheduled a crew to repave the driveway that same day. They completed the job in four hours. Allen's Asphalt of Denver will donate annual application of a seal coat for the next three years.

"The look on Joe Spitz's face was payment enough for this job," Hobbs said. "When travelers take advantage of people, it gives our entire industry a bad name."
