"They did a top coat on my driveway. They did an ok job for the price. They were prompt, friendly and did what was included in the deal.

"They showed up unannounced at 4:30 on a Sunday afternoon with no notice. I was expecting a phone call, but they never called. I had other things I had wanted to" do that day, such as moving things across the driveway into the garage, but I was unable to now. They also trapped my car in the garage. They put on a very thin application of sealer. Within two days after they left, it didn’t even look like it had sealed. They said they had some problems at the office and they were trying to get everything done. They were very much unorganized. I would not use them again or recommend them to others.

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.

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.

He came when scheduled. The driveway was larger than the Big Deal allowed for, so we paid $20 more for the project. It looked fine when completed.

They kept postponing the appointment due equipment and other issues. I decided to not go forward with the service and received a refund from Angie's List.

This company sealed a strip section of blacktop between my neighbors house and my fence. My driveway is on the other side of the fence. The fence is relatively new wood and is stained natural. They got blacktop sealer all over the base of my fence and did an extremely sloppy job. Although this was a service my neighbor had requested, since was not home i immediately called the company and complained about the situation. They said they would send the worker back. He never showed up so i had to scrape it off the fence myself before it dried. Not easy to do when sealer all over the ground.

was very conscientious, and was able to even address small changes to improve the look of the driveway. His proposal was very detailed and helpful, and I thought the price was fair ... not the cheapest, nor the most expensive, but reasonable. His team did a nice job.

Excellent from start to finish.

was very attentive and provided a very nice quality job. I was unaware of the Chip & Seal method and he provided a full explanation from the installation process all the way as to what to expect durability wise. The crew took the extra time to grade a portion of my driveway to ensure rain water would flow away from the house. The complete job was everything that was promised. I would gladly have them back.

got in touch with me in a reasonable amount of time to schedule- I think it was a day or two later. I scheduled with them for a time I thought was going to be good for us, and then forgot about it. I was not prepared when they showed up and they were extremely nice and accommodating about the fact that I had to cancel on-site. Eventually I passed the task off to my husband as I was out of town for 6.5 weeks. He scheduled with them and they did the work. It proceeded to rain heavily, washing away the sealant. I am very concerned about the environmental effect of this incident as the storm sewers in my town run right into the river! Next time we will be more conscious of the weather forecast. In my opinion, they are the professionals and should have been more conscious about the weather forecast and the fact that this stuff can wash away like that.
That said,

came back and re-did the work at no charge and the driveway looks pretty good. There are a few places where the driveway has some seams/ cracks and the sealant did not properly bridge so it is coming out. As I have never had a driveway like this before (my other two houses had concrete), I was unaware that this could be a problem. I would have appreciated advice on how to prep the driveway better for

, or even better, if they could have suggested the work that needed to be done, we probably would have paid them to do it for us.
Overall, the driveway is in much better shape now than it was before. Next time I will do more extensive preparation of the driveway before

to do the sealant for us again. They were very nice and responsive.
