Connecticut Better Business Bureau Recognizes Roccie’s Asphalt Paving with 2008 Business/Consumer Education Award
STAMFORD , Connecticut – Providing consumer
education, especially helping the first-time buyer, is the hallmark of a
company trying to help establish value as the true barometer of a good buying
decision. Providing it in such extensive
and diverse ways as Roccie’s Asphalt Paving is worthy of special
recognition. So it was when the
Connecticut Better Business Bureau (CTBBB) awarded Roccie’s the 2008
Business/Consumer Education Award.
“Many of our customers are first-time purchasers of asphalt driveways and masonry and
are completely unfamiliar with how to determine their best deal for price and
value,” stated Vinnie Engongoro, President and Owner of Roccie’s Asphalt Paving
of Stamford. “Only asking ‘how much does it cost’ and ‘when can you start’ leaves too many homeowners completely
dissatisfied with their home improvement experience,” Mr. Engongoro added.
Over 2,300 complaints and lawsuits are filed each year with the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection and the CTBBB against home improvement contractors. Education to help Connecticut consumers avoid the grief, anxiety, pitfalls and aggravation when it comes to buying a new driveway or masonry is extremely beneficial.
“A recent study of 1,000 home improvement customers found that 50% would NOT hire their contractor again,” cited
Mr. Engongoro .
“That means that the likelihood
of a successful project is that of a coin toss to the uninformed,”
he continued. Roccie’s provides some of
its decision-making and buying information as part of their Anxiety Avoidance Program and Your Driveway – The Right Way information packet . “My dad, Roccie, started this company in 1956.
He knew back then that educating the homeowner was the key to success.
We’re very happy that the CTBBB recognized us for this,” concluded Mr. Engongoro.
