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.

We needed our driveway seal coated and used an Angies List coupon to choose this provider. We scheduled a date and time for the work but they did not appear. I called and got a sincere apology, they were running behind but would be there at the next appointment. It was raining that day so I got a call they were not coming again. The third time was the charm, everything was done very well and we were very happy and the owner was very apologetic about the scheduling. I will definitely call them next time.

They showed up on time, did as they said they would for the estimated price, and the new driveway is beautiful. I never knew how bad our previous driveway was until we had this installed. It is really exceptional, all but flawless. There is no driveway job of this size and scope -- a quarter-block long and much of it on a very steep slope -- that doesn't encounter some problems. And this job was no different. The true measure of a good service company is how they handle the problems.

Humans answered the phone promptly. Very professional, gave ball park figures over the phone. Estimator was here within 24 hours. Made suggestions for many options and followed up with formal quotes by email within 48 hours. Scheduled work, showed up on time, finished the job on time for the agreed price, which by the way was 25-40% cheaper than some of the other quotes we had and they did more work than the other quotes. Best contractor I have used in years, would recommend highly to anyone.

The business is a family operation. The dad and sons worked their butts off. Nobody ever stopped moving. They even removed the existing asphalt completely in front of my house and garage so that it all blended in evenly when the new asphalt was installed.I am very satisfied with the job that was done for my money.

We signed up 9-29-14. They partially paved the driveway on Oct.12, 2014. They never finished the job and wanted to keep three pieces of equipment on the driveway until the Spring at which time they would finish the driveway. We asked them at least 20 times to remove the equipment.On November 16, 2014 a team from the c&c company removed the equipment after calling them about it for each day for about 4 weeks. We do not want to continue with the contract for $15 thousand dollars.
