"Provider bid on project for my driveway and sent my an e-mail contract which I signed and forwarded back to them. That was in spring - May, I think. They never" completed the project despite numerous calls from me and tentative dates that they gave me for completing the project. I wish they would have just told me that they were not interested in doing the project in the first place. Now I will have to wait until spring to get the project done. They don't return calls and I only got to talk to someone when I caught them in the office.

"
did a standard crack filling and
of my drive. They use a hot crack filler which I think is vital to a long lasting" job. The process lasted two days - crack filling one day,
the next. i wish they'd filled a few more cracks, but I'll have to admit there were quite a few and you can only ask so much. The price was actually the highest of the three quotes I got, but not by much and given the quality of their work I had no complaints. The drive looks great.

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.

Sealing your driveway every few years will make it look better and last longer. Here's what it will cost to hire out the job compared to doing it yourself

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.

should have gone but never did, to my call to the company telling them I didn't want them to come back to apply a second coat the next day because they already damaged my property in applying one coat, to their ignoring that and trespassing to apply a second coat but doing so on a driveway that wasn't clean and sealcoated over acorns, branches and rounded lumps of dirt attaching them to my driveway, then the "owner" trespassing on my property and declaring this work "perfect." I have photos of all damage and won't pay because it is costing more to fix their damage than their bill which includes work not authorized

Everything turned out very well. The experienced crew arrived on time, did the work exactly as specified, and did a good job in all respects. Furthermore, they leveled a section of the driveway and corrected a drainage issue around a flower bed at no extra cost.

This is a preliminary review. The actual work has not been done. I'm posting this because there are no other reviews, good or bad. The vendor does list "Angie's List" on his business card. I called

and his crew did a good job of cutting, patching, then sealing the drive. Night of the seal we had rain and a little washed off...he showed the next day to re-seal....then we got another rain that washed that off again. He came a couple days later with torches to put down seal and heat it so that it was FOR SURE going to stay put, rain or no rain.

wanted things to be right and although the rain was unfortunate, he came back to make things right, TWICE. Like these guys, will use them again.

I was very pleased. Our driveway is quite long and we have two parking aprons so there was a fairly large area to be covered. We requested that the service be performed during a specific week because we would be out of town and they were able to do this for us. We have a dog that is on the driveway a lot and we really appreciated having the work done while the dog was with us on vacation.

his crew arrived on a rainy morning and removed the old driveway. They then put down a rock base and replaced the asphalt. The job was well coordinated. Nothing else was disturbed. Excellent job.

The new pad was excavated and filled with stone. Unfortunately, the 2 ton dump truck which brought the stone and asphalt severely damaged the

and marred the surface of my existing asphalt driveway. This could have been avoided with the correct size equipment and a bit more care by the operator(s). The end result is that 80% of the new pad looks fine, but the 20% that is adjacent to my existing, now damaged driveway looks compromised. The crew should have at least sawed a straight

They are very nice and reasonably priced but the product they use does not last. The product they used to seal the cracks melted on tires and my dogs feet. . .
