"
called the previous day to schedule. Showed up with his crew about when he said he would. Proceeded with the work as needed. His work" was very good and I even got him to do an extra detail which was no problem for him. He has all of the proper equipment to do the job and his crew works well together. His clean up work was also very good. Compared to other bids I had, his price was on the lower end and very much in line with the expected costs for this area. I would definitely contact him again for asphalt work.

"Firstly they did an awful job then when we disputed the Credit Card Charges...
came out and supposedly fixed the problem...Asking to be paid" in cash...Naively we did and we are left with still a BAD patching job and neither his office OR his cell will answer 5 calls we made to them in one hour!!! PLEASE save yourself $$$ and aggravation by using another company!

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

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.

Asheville  Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
is very dedicated to providing the best service and result for customer. He is very knowledgeable in his field and answered all my questions ....and I had a lot ! Ladies , as we manage a good portion of home repairs, here is a man you can trust to do a great job . He is respectful to the environment ( I live on a lake) and at the end of the project left a clean work site. He kept me posted as to the timing of the project since we were having alot of rain. I was also able to call him with additional questions/ concerns His crew has been with him many years and all were prepared to do a comprehensive job. The pitch of the driveway is perfect for drainage. So glad I used his company...my yard looks so much better. Just love the results!

We had an appointment to get a quote for sealing our driveway. He no showed and no called. We waited all day for him and even waited several days before writing this. I do not like to be negative about anyone but it has been over a week, and he could have at least called.

Crew courteous.

the same. The job was not graded as well as it could have been. The concrete in the driveway set a bit too fast, so that he surface is not as even as I would have liked it. These flaws are not that bad, but do detract from the quality of the job.

Due to a lot of bad winter weather delaying when asphalt could be laid it took many months to get the work done. However, it was well worth the wait as the job was very professionally done. If you are in a hurry or want a cut rate job you should probably look elsewhere. If you are willing to wait and willing to pay for a quality job, I would highly recommend this company.
