"We contacted them in the fall, they told us they would schedule us as soon as possible. I wanted to get the house ready for my new tenants. However, they did forget" to come out. I did end up contacting them, they apologized, and offered a 10% discount on the work. Overall, the job did go really well.

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 was good. He has his own ideas and uses good materials. It's about 500 psi above what other contractors use and he puts rebar throughout. He makes sure his guys do good work. It really holds up really well. His prices are really reasonable and if you are having issues with an idea and won't know what works he can help you. He's done it so much he knows what works.

I met with

and told him that I wanted a curved walkway in my courtyard. He immediately understood what I wanted and needed and was able to give me a great price. His men showed up promptly and worked diligently a few weeks later when the weather stabilized enough to pour the walkway. I love the work! It is exactly what I wanted!

is the office manager. She is the one who came out and gave me the estimate. The company was very prompt, courteous, and accurate. They acknowledged that they were the wrong service provider for me. They were very honest with me. I would use them again in the future if I fit into the expertise.

Went very well overall. Guy was on time, his crew worked very hard removing the old gravel driveway, forming, and laying the new concrete. The only problem was the concrete company showing up late, Guy had a hard time getting a supplier since it was a prime pouring day and the suppliers were overwhelmed. When the truck showed up, I think they were from

and had a long haul, the concrete was very hard to work with. Guy and his crew worked feverishly pouring and finishing because the concrete was setting so fast. There's a couple of lines that aren't quite straight but not really noticeable, I commend these guys for the great job they did under these conditions and I would recommend

& Sons. One last thing, I was impressed that they followed up 3 months later to make sure I applied a penetrating sealer which I had already done a couple of weeks previously. They're an old-school company that takes pride in their work.

It was extraordinary and we were blown away with the work that they did. The contractor that is building our garage said he is going to start using them as well. We had a very complex job that needed a real concrete artist to be able to figure out all the angels, elevations, and degrees. They were just amazing and we were so lucky to have found them. All the tradesmen that have been working for us have made comments on the driveway. I cannot say enough about them and their skills were off the chart. We would never use anybody else going forward and they got the job done in about one week. They did everything from framing, compacting, grading, pouring, and made sure that all the drainage problems were accounted for. They stayed all day everyday with their team to make sure that everything was done perfectly.

In designing and constructing a valley gutter for my driveway
Pell City Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
did not take into account the slope of the road in combination with the slope of my driveway. So now I have a $6000 valley gutter that is useless. Their excuse? Public Works determines the elevations for the gutter so there was nothing they could do about it. When they found out that Public Works would only approve a valley gutter that would be ineffective they should have halted work and consulted me. Instead they kept going and now I have a $6000 valley gutter that is effectively useless. I trusted

to solve a problem and instead they built a $6000 valley gutter that is useless to me and water will continue to stream down my driveway from the road. I would not recommend using this company.

I called to request an estimate, but reached their voice mail. I left a detailed message describing the work to be done, my name, address, and phone number. I stated the phone number twice, because I know it's easy to miss a number. I never heard back from them.

They did a perfect job. The price was fair and they did exactly what they said they were going to do. They were very thorough, efficient and even stayed while the concrete was drying to ensure no one messed it up.

was going into surgery the next day for his arm but as I was in a tough situation he still came out and did the job which I was very impressed with. I will definitely use him for future work.
