"I had an old faded driveway with some pretty substantial cracks. I wasn't sure if just
it would do much but figured something was better" than nothing. and WOW was I impressed. They thoroughly cleaned and edged the sides. They filled all the cracks. When I got home it looked like a brand new driveway. I have a huge driveway and it was Definitely worth every penny. I'd recommend them hands down.

"I previously had given
's an "A+" for their work (see review below). However, about 2 months after they paved the driveway," the were 2 divets and evidence of wear and tear visible. This is not a high traffic area; the only vehicles using the driveway are a highlander and a minivan. I called and spoke to
multiple times. I was promised multiple times that it would be fixed. Here we are 5 months after the original project with no resolution. Buyer Beware: Once they have your check, it's all over....no guarantees. Would not use again or recommend. My apologies for the above. I was in error- apparently there are two local
's Paving- one in
and one in
. I thought I used the one in
(whose reviews I had read online at Angie's List). Instead I used the one in

's of

Post-winter woes: Should I repair or replace my crumbled and cracked driveway?

Experts say the freeze-thaw cycles, precipitation and snow melt products used in winter harm asphalt and concrete driveways.

Driveways

A homeowner's guide to the advantages and disadvantages of different types of driveway materials, including asphalt, concrete, paving stones and gravel.

Consider cost and durability when choosing the best material for your driveway. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Kenneth B.)
Driveways - Concrete, Driveways - Asphalt

Choosing the driveway material that’s best for you depends on many factors. We make it easy with our concrete vs asphalt comparison and interview with the pros.

Driveway stain removal isn't easy. Here are some of the best methods to remove car fluid, tire or oil stains from your brick, asphalt or concrete driveway.

Concrete driveways are frequently twice as expensive as asphalt driveways, but they can last up to 30 years without showing major wear. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Ernest C. of Chicago)

Whether its made of concrete, asphalt, brick or stone, regular driveway maintenance is essential to prevent cracks, crumbles and potholes.

If the state requires a contractor's license, then he needs to have a license in each state he intends to work in - plus state/local business licenses as applicable.

 

This does not mean there are not a lot of contractors who cross state lines without proper licensing - the penalties in may cases are not real severe and are just a fine, not criminal, so many take the chance.

 

As you say - argh  - many contractors are not really businessmen and have zero legal education, so many people get burned.

?

To overlay,with proper adhesion so it does not peel off, you first need to prepare the surface - typically heavy watercutting or sandblasting for concrete over concrete, or high-pressure presure washing and an asphalt (NOT water based cutback) adhesion coat before asphalt overlay.

 

Because of the prep cost, a concrete overlay commonly costs more than just tearingit out and replacing it, and if you are replacing it due to cracking and breaking up those cracks will almost always propogate or "reflect" through the new layer too with concrete. Ditto with asphalt overlay, though using a crack-stopper fabric can reduce (but usually not eliminate) that.

 

If just repairing ice melt/freeze thaw deterioration, a cementatious epoxy overlay can be used, though its life is less (normally) than new concrete. Usually used for limited areas like garage area pad, not entire driveways.

 

Asphalt overlays over somewhat deteriorated concrete can work well,but if not prepared and high-pressure (about 5000 psi or higher) cleaned to remove ALL deteriorated material, they can peel off because they stuck to deteriorated loose material rather than sound concrete. Again, can cost as much for a 1-1/2 to 2 inch overlay as for a 3-4 inch full replacement by the time you are done, because the prep work is labor intensive.

 

Even if this is just a surficial deterioration issue, I would talk to several contractors (site visit) about alternatives and let them bid both an overlay and a replacement (or whichever options they are inclined to bid on), then after getting opinions from all three and bids for all options, make your decision. I am pretty confident that total replacement will be both the most recommended and the cheapest, at probably about $2-4/SF for asphalt or 4-6/SF for concrete - commonly nearer the lower than higher range for most jobs and locales. If the overlay and replacement cost is pretty close,I would go with the replacement because overlays over concrete are always somewhat iffy as to how long they will last, especially concrete overlays.

 

For cost comparison, except in extreme freeze-thaw country, you can figure a concrete drive will last about twice as long as an asphalt one.

Contacted two days before. They came cleared and sealed driveway and blocked off driveway. I received a detailed bill one week later.

The work that was originally promised was not done. The work that was done had to be redone twice. The owner promised to come back a fourth time to further correct problem. I never heard from him again. I really wish I had not used this company!

The most important detail is that CP stands by its work. A problem did develop over the winter, but company made it clear that they would make repairs gratis. I've only had this kind of work done once, so I can't compare the experience to that of any other company, but these guys were competent and responsive. I do wish I'd been onsite to check the work as it progressed; they could have cleaned up a bit better. Still, largely satisfied, as was a neighbor who also used them and recommended them to me.

I called Smiths Sealcoating & Paving to get an estimate for sealcoating my driveway, as well as two small paths to the front and side doors.
Albany Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
came in mid-September to take measurements and provide the estimate. I called their office the next day to give the green light for the work. Then, it was a waiting game. A few weeks later, they called to say they were coming the next day. When I got home from work the next day, everything looked great! I am pleased with the results and would definitely recommend them. If I had a tip it would be to get the work done earlier in the year -- maybe there wouldn't be as much of a wait between the time of the estimate and the actual work.

The came over when promised. It took them all day to correctly pour a new 9 car (approx.) driveway. The care they took in leveling and pitching the driveway so no puddles would appear when it rained was admirable.
Albany Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
repeatedly kept checking to be certain the water would drain when it rained. They also paved the walkway from the front of the house around to the back. Again, the quality of the work was outstanding. Although we have not gone through the winter months yet with all the changes in temperature that happen, I am certain our driveway will withstand snow blowing and road salt for many years to come.
