Specializing in Asphalt Paving, Seal Coating and Striping, and Tar and Chip Paving
Family Owned & Operated for Over 50 Years
The Riley family began paving Tennessee over 50 years ago. Today, John Riley and his staff continue the tradition of providing quality Mid-South paving services and great value. We’re very proud of our work, and are honored to tell you about our company.
Riley Paving started operations way back in 1954, when John “Chili” Riley, born in 1936, built on his construction background by learning all about paving techniques. Having learned the value of hard work picking cotton as a boy, he dedicated himself to working just as hard perfecting the paving trade.
Chili had some great and loyal employees and the company quickly grew. After growing up in the business (29 years now), I eventually took over for Dad, and now my son has joined me in our family business, too.
Besides traditional “hot mix” asphalt, we specialize in the very cost-effective type of paving known as “Chip & Seal” or “Tar & Chip.” Riley Paving’s main objective is to satisfy our customers. We know that repeat business and profit will follow from that simple philosophy.
Using this formula, Riley Paving hardly advertises at all, but has been successful due to our loyal repeat customers and great word of mouth. The way the economy is today, I have decided to bring the company, attitude and successful formula to the internet, to reach out to new customers throughout the Mid-South.
Unfortunately, due to overly aggressive salesmen, the paving industry has gathered a mixed reputation. Riley Paving can assure our customers that we will never use a high-pressure, pushy approach. We will measure, explain, answer your questions and price your project… then we want you to sleep on our quote. We know that you’ll get back to us when you are ready, and are completely comfortable with the process.
That is our commitment to you — quality workmanship, competitive pricing and no hard sell.
