Careful. Choose one from each group.
1.) It could be legit
2.) Stolen from his job site
A.) He could do a good job
B.) He could do a poor job, and you'll need to rip it out later
a.) The material could be great stuff
b.) It could be junk (or contaminated)
Whatever you do, don't pay him in advance...

It was already done and paid for before I posted the entry, so I have to hope for the best.
This is a local guy from the next teeny town down the road. At least he says he is; I don't know him. But it seems like a great deal of work for very little payoff if it's some kind of a scam. He did bring a crew of 6 guys, a Bobcat, a roller, and two small dumptrucks of ground up road. And the surface he made is how he said it would be today. If it holds up as well as he says, it was a good deal, and if I get a good job I'll call him back for more work. If it falls apart in a year, then I basically paid too much for getting the thing fixed up for another year -- but not that much too much, and if I hadn't done anything (not unlikely) I'd be up to my fenders in mud next spring.
