About Us

Every day, we go to work hoping to do two things: share our knowledge with our customers and help make parking lots look a little better. It was true when Coastal Paving first opened in 1982, and it’s just as true today.

Back then the company was in a small one-room office in San Jose’s historic Willow Glen District. From just a tiny street-front office, Coastal Paving, Inc. offered its clients the best asphalt paving services around. The name inspired by Cliff Heaps’ love for boating, the beach and the marinas of Huntington Harbor which he had left a few months earlier.

In 1981, Cliff Heaps (Coastal Paving, Inc. , chief executive officer) had first ventured into Northern California. From his first glimpse of the San Francisco Bay, Cliff was drawn into the Silicon Valley and decided along with other partners to start Coastal Paving.

A year later, in 1982, Cliff traveled to San Jose and decided this is where he wanted to start his paving company. From the beginning, Coastal Paving set out to be a different kind of company. One that not only focused on fixing client’s paving problems, but providing them long-term solutions.

Our mission is to complete our clients paving projects, on time, within budget, and the right way. As Cliff says, ”The least expensive job is the one that is done right the first time”.

Today, with more than 40 field employees servicing the entire State of California and Nevada, Coastal Paving is the premier asphalt and concrete repair and maintenance contractor. And with every project we work on, we strive to provide exceptional quality pavement solutions. We guarantee it.
