They were supposed to fill cracks and rough pitted areas of driveway then apply sealer to restore driveway to smooth surface with top-rated sealant product they described when first surveying our driveway. We don't know what they actually used because there was no markings on the tubs in their truck. They sprayed on stuff so thin that coverage was streaky. Instead of filling cracks and pitted areas, they just sprayed on the thin stuff. Smell was horrible, like oily fumes. Black look only lasted until we drove on pavement, then tire tracks quickly marred the appearance. Now, tracks appear anytime anyone drives on pavement. They also overestimated the square footage of our driveway by nearly double our actual square footage and said if payment wasn't received in less than one week, we'd be hit with interest. When we insisted they recomputed the bill, they reluctantly admitted perhaps they made some calculation errors. We sent only the square footage times the stated price per foot, which was horribly inflated over what their Angie's List coupon said.

I set an appointment for an estimate when he did not show of call after about 1 1/2 hrs past the appointment time I called him. He said he was delayed at a jobsite due to weather but will still be coming. Once he did arrive I showed him the job and explained that we were having concrete driveway put in and the person doing that was going to dig out the path and put the gravel from the old driveway in the path as a base. He gave an estimate of $4000 that then went to $4400 (extra $400 for "costs") I agreed even though I thought is was a little high and it maxed my budget because there are not many people that do tar and chip. He agreed to start about 1 week after the concrete was done. The path ended up one foot wider that expected due to the width of the bucket it was dug with but it was shortened by at least 20 feet. I my eyes the material used was about the same as the extra width was balanced by the shorter path. We called and he said he would come out and take a look. He did not show up at the time he said to re-evaluate the job. a couple days later I called and he said he came by and looked at it. He raised the price another $400. This was simply over the budget so the work was not done. I got the impression he just didn't want the job. If that was the case it would have been nice if he just said that so I didn't waste a month waiting for it to be done. We are having stained concrete put in by the person who did the driveway for about $1000 less than his original estimate. I would not recommend due to poor communication, missed and late for appointments and high prices.

I initially came in touch with
Palm Beach Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
through a Home & Garden show in 2009; they came out and gave me an estimate. Although the price was reasonable, I had other financial priorities at the time. Contacted them again in 2012 but again my finances were an issue even though they were willing to do the job at the 2009 price. I was finally able to commence the project in 2014. The 2014 price was only several hundred dollars more than their 2009 estimate. There was a 33% deposit required at the time the contract was signed; they gave me a date the work would start and they arrived promptly on the proposed date.
Prior to my signing the contract, I requested references and visited and spoke with three people who had used them. Each one was totally satisfied with the work that was done and all three driveways were still lovely even though they had been done several years earlier.
This was a a two-step process in that the asphalt needed to dry before the stamped process could take place. They gave me the approximate date they would return and everything went according to schedule. The staff were totally professiona and one could tell that they knew what they were doing.

(

) was extremely patient in talking me through some changes I wanted to make explaining that athough it could be done, it would be costly. i went into panic mode several times and each time he listenend and made suggestions without being overbearing or condescending. The end result is that I have a driveway that is absolutely beautiful.
When the job was done, I sent him an email telling him how delighted I was and asking that he include my property on his list of references. Talk about "

appeal" , when the time comes to sell my home (which is no time soon), this driveway will definitely bring customers into the house.

Seal Coat was referred to us by another company when they couldn't give an estimate due to family issues and an over log of customers waiting for sealcoating. Their bit came in well under another company and they came out the same day as they called. We scheduled the work for two days later (although he was willing an able to do the work that same day!) He patched several cracks that were not in the original estimate without further charge and the work he did was exemplary. His crew were friendly, professional and I would not hesitate to refer him to others needing this service. Thanks Guys!

Vinny and his crew were responsive and careful when apply the sealcoating. Since there was some rain in the forecast, he offered to come back and redo any areas that needed. And, true to his word, he did come back. The job looks good and I'm hoping that it lasts for a few years as well.

They came, blew off surface dirt and applied the crack sealer. From there they came about a week apart to apply the 2 coats of seal coat to the whole parking lot. By the end of the year, the cracks began to open up under the crack sealer they applied. We put DD on notice as we didn’t expect anything to be done in winter and continued to watch this happen over the next few months. We addressed it again in the spring.



After a few phone messages, we were able to get someone to come out and look at the issues. The problem was acknowledged and eventually scheduling was worked out (more phone calls).



They showed up when the store was closed and overlaid more crack filler over the many that didn’t take the first time. They even filled a few new ones. Then we get the call looking for more $$ for filling the new ones. Problem is, there was still more warranty to be completed (add’l cracks to re-fill, seal coat lifting in many spots). We’re heading into Sept (almost a year later) and to date, no one has come back out, no more work has been done, and going forward, we doubt we will ever hear from them again. On that note, we won’t refer them to anyone either because the parking lot looks like crap. Too bad, they actually had the opportunity to take care of their customer and they elected not to.



I believe the reason things didn’t take on the first round was because they didn’t do a thorough job of cleaning the asphalt. I assume this is also why the (2) coats of seal coat are lifting around the parking lot as well.



So, for the reasons of extremely poor customer service, shoddy work, and well, the woman who answers the phone and never knows anything…. We simply cannot recommend this company.

Came out and did the application when I arrived home it looked like there were a lot of brush
Palm Beach Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
and bad spots with to much or not enough seal coat. When he came over for payment I was told it would dry fine. The next day it hadn't dried any better and I contacted them to tell them I was not pleased with the job. They did come back and reseal the entire driveway making it look much better. I am still not sure on the job but will wait to see how it holds up. I have a bad feeling it won't. But will update if needed.

I contacted Merit and they followed up with an estimate very quickly. Both the estimator and installation crew were professional and competent. We got three bids and Merit was in the middle. I needed to call a couple of times to get an installation date. We are very happy with the results and would recommend Merit to other customers. We would also use Merit again.

This experience ranks as one of the worst ever with a contractor.
It took numerous reminders for probably over two weeks to even get them to come out to do the job.
Yes, I should have known right then, but I made a mistake of proceeding.
When they came out, I just could not believe how shoddy a job they did. It took less than two weeks for the asphalt patch they put in to collapse. And it is the part of the driveway barely even driven on!
It appears they put in no foundation! Just basically papered over the hole.
Then, for about a month I am repeatedly - and very politely - requesting that the problem is fixed. After countless reminders on my end, empty promises on theirs, and finally - the owner telling me to "stop bugging him with my stupid patch" - I am giving up.
My strong recommendation - avoid like a plague.

The service was exultant. The came when they said they would and made sure we were satisfied with the progress. they cleaned up after them selves. They came back later to check for any concerns and remedied any we had. We have shared their name with others and will use them for other construction job as well.
