“My hat comes off to Kevin and his crew for the paving job did on my driveway. No wonder Howard Little is known to be the “to go” company for paving jobs in the Valley. Not only do they do a top-notch job but they guarantee it. It’s good to see men take pride in doing the job right. Thanks Kevin. You can use my name as a reference anytime you want.”
