"I had to wait about a month before they were able to schedule me but they called the day before they came to do the work. They came on time and did the work with" the same expertise that they used when they put in the new driveway. I was pleased with the job and clean up. I will call them again to do any other work that I might need.

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.

was extremely fast and friendly. I had several questions which answered quickly and patiently. He gave an estimate in a very timely manner and performed the sealcoat beautifully. Our driveway looks as good as new.

We called the company and they came out to do a quote within 2 weeks of placing the first call. We accepted their offer and sent signed paperwork back the following day (6/30/15). Three weeks later we still had not received a phone call giving us an estimate on when this work would be completed. Called the office twice and was told they would call us back. A week later they finally returned the call and said they were coming the following day to complete the work (7/28/2015). So a month after paperwork was signed is when the work was finally completed. We also require a sealant to be done two months later and after calling to schedule that they said that they can not guarantee they will be able to do it before winters hits because of timing and workload. I figured considering the fact we just had part one of the job done on our driveway that they might be able to accommodate us for part two. I don't really know how to access the actual work on the driveway since it's just recently completed, but it seems to be a good job. My main issue with the company is lack of communication and service. I understand there is a short window of time for this job considering our winters and I'm sure they are busy, but I believe the company should be capable of better planning and client service.

They did a good Job. Only complaint was the stated they would fill the cracks. They technically did but not what I expected.
I expected to fill crack completely and then seal over. They just used sealer to fill cracks. The cracks are still visable. Suggest you clarify with them what they mean when they say they will fill the cracks. Otherwise I was completely satified and would use them again.

I'm very pleased with how things went with

. They came and paved the driveway about a week after the quote was given. They arrived on time and were very professional. They dug up 2 layers of existing pavement and then added rock/gravel. They leveled both the rock/gravel and pavement layers to drain correctly down to the far end of the driveway. Both

was working with the roller well after all the other workers had finished. He was making sure the surface was flat and curved just right. They tested water drainage with the hose and made sure all the edges were clean and angled correctly. They also took care not to damage or disrupt the rock and wood edging around several portions of the driveway. No garbage or extra materials were left behind. They arrived around 8:00 AM and departed in the mid-afternoon. It's now been about 3 weeks and I am very impressed with the work that has been done. I would recommend Hicks for any paving job and will have them back in the spring to do the sealing.
The only area of improvement for

would be the coordination of the actual date of service... I had to call the main office a couple times to get a final confirmation. This was not a major inconvenience and did not diminish the high quality work that was provided. Additionally,

was slightly more expensive than some of the other bids I received (I collected 4). That being said, I believe you get what you pay for and I am very satisfied with the end product. I would prefer to spend a couple hundred dollars more on such a large project and feel confident that it was done right.

and his crew of about 6 arrived about 30 minutes early. Looks great. I would advise you to ensure that your concrete is cleaned of all asphalt before they leave. I called to have them come back and clean it up and they did that and cleaned my neighbors garage of dust and particles from the driveway repair 2 days following the repair. They sent

to do the power washing and scrubbing of the areas, it looks great now and my neighbors are now pleased that all the dust etc has been removed.
I would use them again, but ensure they cover flowers in beds during work etc.
All in all it was a good experience even with the hiccup of the necessary clean up. They were pleasant and focused on getting it right.

was very professional and kept his word. It was the best quote I received since I started to shop around for contractor to complete the work. The work came out looking great.

They did a great job. But what I really want to point out is how impressed I was with the front office as well. Because of all the rain and mechanical issues, they had to delay it twice. But she was so good about letting me know as soon as she could, and even took some money off for any trouble delaying several times had caused me.

Set an appointment with provider to provide an estimate and recommendations for whether I needed an entire new asphalt drive or a 2" overlay of asphalt. I wanted to personally meet with estimator to determine options. I spoke with estimator who said he was part owner of the company to set appointment of which I had to take off work. He stated he would be the one meeting with me. No one showed for scheduled appt. After numerous phone calls back and forth with the company, I finally after 2 hours received a call with the man I spoke with day before (
New Haven Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
) who said he would be the one providing the estimate and looked forward to meeting with me. He said he gave the job to someone else who said he did an estimate at the wrong house and left the estimate in the door. He would not give me the location of this "fabricated" excuse. He said he would meet with me personally yet that day, but after that fiasco I was not about to give them my business.
