"C&C Paving is absolutely one of the best companies I have ever used. * Clay
performed an inspection, made recommendations and created" a contract for the agreed upon work. *
, one of the crew chiefs called me to establish a day & time and kept me up to date of their arrival and scope of work. * They arrived on time, were very professional and informative and invited any and all questions pertaining to the work. * The entire crew were very professional in organization and understanding of the scope of the work to be performed. * The equipment they used was extremely clean, polished and obviously professional looking and it was a pleasure to have them parked on my street and working on my driveway. * The end result was was a grade change in the slope of the driveway and an extremely polished and beautiful driveway into my property. It is unique in appearance and the envy of my neighbors! * I am delighted to recommend C&C Paving to all my neighbors and any seeking a reliable and professional Paving group. The work was outstanding, the Crew extremely professional and informative. * The value for the scope of work performed was surprisingly reasonable and yet top notch!

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.

Prompt quote and answered questions I had. They called night before, showed up on time next day, removed old driveway, smoothed and compacted base. Came two days later (delayed by rain) and poured new asphalt, rolled and compacted. No damage to adjacent garden or trees. Workers were friendly, knowledgable, and professional. I appreciated the extra care they took. Cleaned up afterwards. Received a little book about caring for our new driveway.

A rep from driveway guys showed up while i was working in my yard, he said that they were working in the neighborhood and could give me a free quote to have my drive way paved, I told him sure go ahead, expecting a high price i could not afford.
I have a rather large driveway, 1900 square feet, it was all covered with 3/4' stone. I have been looking too have it paved for years but the price was always too high, last time i had a quote was 3 years ago and it was 8000.00.
He quoted me a price of 5600. that included removal of all the old stone and minimum of three inch pavement. great price i said lets do it.
During the process they removed three large rocks and a tree stump that was buried under the 3/4" stone for no extra charge.
Also, I had

lined with landscape timbers that over the year were falling over, they straightened them out and braced them from behind, again no charge.
I wanted too keep the stone they were removing for other projects so the foreman had them piled up in the far side of my yard near the woods.
the drive way came out excellent no complaints at all, can not see any seams and all the edges look great. It comes with a one year warranty for any cracks or frost heaves.
nice job guys thanks,

I called

to schedule and estimate and promptly heard back from Pat. He then came out to my house and surveyed the job and turned an estimate around to me quickly. I had gotten a few other estimates for other local providers, but ultimately choose
Hamden Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
because of the reviews I read here on Angie;s List. I really wanted to get these guys in to replace my old (20-30 years?) asphalt driveway. We also just had a new garage build so the old driveway didn'tt quite match up to the new garage apron. Fortunately, Pat was able to schedule me fairly quick. They were very professional to work with and did a great job of setting our expectation regarding the work and timeline. Ultimately I'm confident I chose the right contractor and I couldn't be happier.

left a flyer in my mailbox, or at my door, as they have done in prior years when working in my neighborhood. I contacted them on April 1, 2015, in the late afternoon and spoke to
Hamden Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
Ford. He was very polite, professional and competent. It turned out that they had an opening for paving my driveway the next morning, and I decided to go ahead and get the driveway done. I did not get other estimates, and I don't know if the price was reasonable or not; but I relied on the generally excellent reviews on Angie's List and trusted that the price was appropriate. Obviously, it would have been better to get a few estimates, but I just went ahead and took a

Ford put me down for 10 a.m. the next morning, but the workers arrived at 8 a.m. instead. I was not pleased with the early arrival because it disrupted my plans. But the company did such a good job, and
Hamden Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
Ford was so polite and professional, that I do not hold this against them. At least they did not make me wait around for them to arrive. Once I moved the cars out of the garage, they went right to work. In less than an hour, I had a new asphalt driveway, and it looks marvelous. I waited much too long to write this review, but now I can tell you that, after 4 months, it still looks marvelous. Once it was done,
Hamden Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
showed up to make sure that the job was done properly and that I was satisfied, and, of course, to collect the check. I will add one note of caution.
Hamden Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
told me that it did not matter if I was not at home when the work was done and if the garage doors were closed. For all I know, they would have done the same excellent job under those conditions. But I was glad that I was at home, and that I had the garage doors open. The men actually moved their small tractor, with the rollers on them to smooth the pavement, into my garage, and worked form the garage on down. They could not have done that if the doors had been closed. I also fear that they would not have been able to pave the asphalt so smoothly against the concrete floor of the garage, and so level with the floor, if the doors had been closed. Again,
Hamden Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
and the crew obviously know what they are doing, so if
Hamden Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
says you don't have to be there, I am willing to bet that he is right. Nevertheless, I would recommend that you be there, and that, if you have garage doors, you leave them open. One other minor point is that the workers left some debris on the garage floor, and they used my own broom/brush to sweep up with -- without even asking permission, and without putting it back where they found it. But it was not a big deal.
Hamden Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
offered to sweep it up himself, but I declined. -- In sum, this company did an excellent job, and I recommend then without reservation -- although you might be wise to find out for yourself if the price is right.

Works was fantastic. They showed up on time, the crew cleaned and prepped the site and then started paving. 2 1/2 hours later we had a brand new driveway!
It looks great. The leveled everything and it is better than before.

Hamden Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
was great to work with and very punctual for estimate and work. Was easy to get responses from during those times and actually showed up early for the work in the yard. They did exactly what I wanted in terms of the dirt pile removal and grading the yard back to the level it should have been. They removed all the dirt and debris and leveled the area out smooth before leaving. They also hit two high spots in my front yard for me that I asked about when they got here which wasn't part of original work estimate and did so with no issues. Great people to deal with and will use them again in the future as well as recommend to others.
