"Paving went well. Owner was punctual and detailed in his explanation of the process. Best quoted price I received

-David Z.

"The
crew were paving the driveway of a home for sale in the neighborhood. I stopped and asked if they would be interested in repaving" the bottom portion of my drive. I originally had this same work performed 12 years ago and after the street was paved my driveway again needing building to a higher level but still was in good shape. A person who I believe to be Buddyjohn walked to my house (about 2-3 houses away) and gave price to perform the job after I offered cash. The price was the same as another estimate I had from another company who was not receiving cash but he and the crew/equipment were here so I agreed to have them perform the work as it would be done that day. They were able to use the asphalt...which was left from the original job and applied then rolled what looked to be a good driveway. Although I was told I could drive on the surface that same day I still waited 3 days to do so. Almost immediately upon use the rocks and tar particles began eroding from the drive. This continued throughout the summer and to this date. Enough material eroded on a constant basis that each time I mowed my yard I could not use leaf blower to clean bottom of driveway but instead had to sweep and use a dust
to gather rock and tar particles so they would not be blown into and accumulate in my yard. It appeared to me that the tar had dried too much before application or that the rock formula was too dry to begin with as the surface never looked s it should or like any other asphalt driveways I looked at. I began calling and texting this person and the company number I was given on their business card within the same week of application and I continued doing so until this last month. Originally I was told that they would re-do or correct the work and that he would make it good whatever had to be done when they were again in the area. I now know that their business is located in
, KY but did not know this at the time of hire. This never happened despite my repeated contacts and messages. The application of material was obviously defective but no corrective measures or refund of my $600 cash was made. Goes to show that one should not try to get work performed just because it can happen quickly and that credit cards where the funds can be held are the way to go. Cash no longer is king just as a handshake deal is no longer of value :-) It is now way past any acceptable weather conditions for the work to be corrected and I am not expecting to see a refund anytime soon unless outside pressures come into play.

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.

They showed up a couple days before to clean up the existing driveway and get ready for the paving. Because of the weather, they had to split the job into multiple days.
When they arrived to do the paving, they helped me take down a gate that was over the driveway as well as move things off of the driveway.
They started around 8:30am and completed the resurfacing work by 11am.
Our driveway is about 2000 sq ft.

The contractor was honest about the work and time it would take. The men worked professionally. The company was always responsive to calls and questions.

I called and left messages with the owner and the president for three weeks. Sent them pictures also and finally had to threaten to take action before they finally returned my phone calls. First, I was told they would completely redo my driveway by spreading a thin

of asphalt over the entire driveway. Several days later they called and said they would instead reseal the entire driveway and build a
Louisville Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
and it would look just like a new driveway and also take care of all the water issues. Also, I was told I could drive on the driveway in 24 hours.

On the last date they were at my home, June 24, their second attempt to correct their originally laid, botched driveway, was again unsuccessful with terrible results. The seal coat never cured or stuck properly, leaving

, gouges, and spots throughout the entire driveway. My driveway still has numerous areas of ponding water, asphalt is cracking, grass is growing up through the asphalt in areas where they obviously went beyond the original driveway with their asphalt, and I have very visible, patches and saw cut
Louisville Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
with deep cuts where they had tried to patch their mistakes previously. They have never responded to my phone calls or pictures I have sent them, since that same date.

In summary, I contracted
Louisville Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
to repave my driveway for $3,880 which was comparable to my other estimates, but they had an A rating on Angie's List and also attached a super service award from Angie's list to the contract along with a separate page stating their Core Values, which included respect, integrity, dedication, and excellence. I can assure you, none of those traits were shown when they arrived at my home or in any conversation I had with anyone who worked there. They were rude, unprofessional, unqualified, and unethical. I paid them in full the first time they completed the job because the job foreman insisted my contract required me to do so even though I told him the work wasn't right, but he stated they would come back to correct any issues Immediately. Of course, I regret having done so, just like I regret ever having hired them in the first place. And I am astonished and disturbed that they are still an A rated company on your site....just like they were when I hired them! I find that impossible to believe, actually.

So, here it is a year later, I have waisted countless hours, not to mention thousands of dollars, and my driveway looks like crap and still needs to be resurfaced, I've spend time and money repairing all the property damage they have done, and still have more repairs to be completed from the damages they recklessly did while attempting to perform a

I have a very large and steep driveway.
Louisville Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
used weadeaters and blowers to clean the drive, used hot mix professional equipment to fill the cracks. The next day they put down a heavily sanded sealer so that i have good traction in winter. They scrubbed it in with brooms. On day three they put down a top coat. There is not a drop of the sealer on my sidewalk or retaining wall. The owner wiped his feet before walking on THE GRASS! Very conscientious and the owner supervised his men closely. They also power washed a large composite deck for me under this contract. The deck was moldly and they got it clean without strong chemicals. Superb work, and you'll see by my other reviews that I'm not easy to please.

I asked for an estimate through Angie's List.

contacted me and had an estimate in my mail box the next day. After getting a couple more estimates (which were much lower) from companys that were not prompt and not very professional, I decided to go with

. I just decided you get what you pay for. I called

to get a better idea of what I was getting for my money. He answered all my questions and scheduled the date, called me before arriving,and showed up when they said they would. I believe they did a very good job. The work looks neat, they took care not to slop seal coat on plants and sidewalks. My only complaint would be that there was an Angie's Deal offered for $140 ($360 value) and when I called

, to see if buying this Angie's Deal would save me money on the seal coat part of my driveway work, he said that I would not be able to use it because I was having other driveway repair work done. I still do not understand why the deal could not have been used on 1000 sq ft.(the

Part of the driveway was covered under an Angie's List coupon, but the driveway was over the coupon square footage, so we paid the difference. Cost was reasonable. Cracks up to a 1/4" were included in the cost, though they were sealed over, not filled in first. The

looked great after it was finished. They came on time, were courteous and finished the job quickly. However, it has only been 8 months, and weeds have already grown through the cracks. Next time we would try to find a provider whose

1/5 of the sealer came up after the winter. Granted it was a cold winter, but it pealed up like paint. 2 of the patched areas came up. I had another company come out in June 2014 and the product looks far superior and it was for less money
