"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.

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.

Cracks are inevitable on asphalt driveways. But a quick repair can add to your home's curb appeal.

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.

It went great! In the past, other contractors have simply added more gravel and smoothed it over and this is adequate until the first rain. As soon as it rains this method simply washed away, with all the gravel just flowing down the driveway and off into the woods.
Asheville  Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
Grading took a much different approach. Before even adding any gravel, they scraped and graded the surface to allow the water to flow at the appropriate angle and to the right spot! Then they added the gravel material which was different from what others had used. It seems to bond together better and not just wash away. lastly, they packed the gravel down. The result was a beautiful new driveway!

But the true test was a couple days later when it rained hard all day!! The water flowed to one side, as the design intended, and off down the hill, without the gravel!! We are extremely pleased with the results!!

From now on I will always use this company. Not only did they do a fantastic job, they are a small, local, family business that prides themselves on treating the customer with respect and doing top quality work. We couldn't be happier!!

They were very professional fellas. They were on time, clean-cut, respectful, didn't take a ton of breaks or chit chat - they just got right to work everyday and really took my visions and brought them to life. They really cared and listened to what I wanted. And they gave me a GREAT DEAL!!!! I would recommend them over and over, and of course, will be using them again in the future!!

He sealed all the cracks in preparation for winter, and will finish up come spring when it's a bit warmer. He did a good job, and was very pleasant. He came right away, and didn't apply any pressure to the situation.

came out on promptly and when he said to give me and estimate. The estimate seemed reasonable and so we scheduled for the work. He kept me appraised of the weather and how it was affecting the schedule and started as soon as the weather allowed. The driveway came out beautiful- a very professional job. He even took out a lump in the drive that was obscuring our vision as we drove up the drive. The sealing was done after the drive had cured and only added to the beauty of the work he had already done. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He also does plowing during the winter and I've already talked to him about doing that for me too.

and his crew arrived on time per agreed upon schedule and accomplished the work over two half days rather than one full day because of impending rain on day 1. The crew members were all really nice guys who worked together as a team and were very professional in every aspect of the grading, filling and paving process. Their equipment appeared very well kept, everything in good working order, and they were especially careful when using it not to damage any of the plants and trees on either side of the driveway or anywhere else in the yard (which was a challenge considering our tight and sloping drive). We learned that

, who ran most of the equipment, has over 45 years experience and many of his crew have been with him 10-15 years, which was very reassuring. They all seemed to know what to do when with very little direction needed. We found

company when we saw his crew paving another driveway on our street, so we contacted him for a quote.

quote seemed very fair and was in line with others received, but his friendly and confident manner stood out from the competition, plus we were impressed with the results of the work he did on our neighbor's larger driveway. As the crew departed, they cleaned up every bit of debris from the area - including the street outside our home and left caution materials and clear instructions for on-going care. The job looks terrific and we plan to followup with

for the sealing process recommended for 90 days hence. In short we would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone wanting professional, friendly driveway paving services.
