Virginia Paving and Sealcoating is a division of Puckett Contracting, which has been serving central Virginia since 2010. The owner of Puckett Contracting, Daniel Puckett, was born and raised in Farmville, VA, where he currently lives with his wife of 22 years. He got started in the construction business in 2005 when a friend approached him about starting a roofing company. In 2006, he obtained his class A contractor’s license from the state of Virginia and began building custom homes in addition to the roofing work.
In 2014, Daniel’s brother Dayton asked him if he could help find someone to seal coat the parking lot of a funeral home that Dayton owns in Farmville. Much to his surprise, when he began searching he found that there weren’t any companies in the area that offered that service. He decided to purchase the necessary equipment and just do the job for his brother, as well as any other friends and family members who needed sealcoating work done. He figured he might do a few jobs a week and make a little extra money in the process.
Little did Daniel know exactly how under-served the region was when it came to sealcoating and paving services! As word about his work spread, he quickly became booked solid doing sealcoating work 5-6 days a week. After a wildly successful season, Daniel decided to create a separate branch of his construction business focusing solely on that area—and thus, Virginia Paving and Sealcoating was born.
