"We invited 3 companies to come and give bids.
was the middle bid. The estimator had good ideas and explained the entire process. They" were prompt with the estimate and were
about the timing. Communication was excellent. With all the rain, delays were possible but we were kept up to date and were pleased to have our driveway started a little earlier than expected.
efficiently handled the permits. We did ask for a change to the style of concrete finish after the work was started. As it required more time on the job, we negotiated an additional fee and feel it was well worth the difference. We can't say enough good things about the crew who poured and finished the concrete. They worked very hard in extreme heat. They obviously take great pride in their work as seen in their work ethic and finished job. The team was polite and left the site clean every day. All parts of the job have been completed to our satisfaction. We are extremely pleased with our new driveway and front walk and can confidently recommend

"At first it wasn't done to my satisfaction. They had indicated how much better they could make it. I told them they didn't do what I asked them to do so" they called in some additional help from their team and made it just the way they said they were going to. They did a really good job and seemed really intent on meeting my expectations. They actually deducted $50 because it took a little longer than they said it would. I thought the price was reasonable and they did excellent clean up job when they were finished.

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.

Purchased one of those Angie's "Big Deals" for $99, valued at $500. "$99 for 2 Hour Landscape Design & Consultation with CAD Plans." Appointment made promptly...then he did not show up. Called after waiting 30 minutes and he answered and said someone was coming but was held up at another job. The same person who answered the phone showed up 20 minutes or so later. Pleasant enough and verbally described all the materials and options, said he would send me the designs and cost. Then nothing. Nothing for over 20 days. Emailed, and received a prompt reply with a list of 4 options with very little detail but did include type of ground material, number of plants (no further description of type), other work and materials covered, and pricing. With signature line for agreeing to the services. BUT NO CAD which was promised in the pre-paid package and the reason why I purchased the package. I would not 'buy' a

I worked with concrete for two summers; I am familiar with how to do good concrete work and I know the mistakes to look for.

completed the job in four days, which is great. They broke out the old concrete and carried it away. Here are some things that they did that caused me to give it a B for quality. 1. They used crushed concrete to
East Alton Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
the new concrete on. When I worked with concrete we always used sand. I don't know if it makes a difference or not. 2. They only used vertical runs of steel rebar, and not any horizontal. 3. Some of the edges that they trowelled are not smooth and clean. 4. They did not wipe off the concrete off of my house when they poured my sidewalk in some areas. The wet concrete splashed onto my paint and dried. Not a big deal for me because I want to repaint it anyways. 5. They caused some minor damage to my aluminum wrapped trim around my garage door. 6. Concrete always cracks at inside corners. The sidewalk was poured next to my house from my front door to the driveway. When the sidewalk meets the driveway, it creates an inside corner. I was expecting them to put a diagonal cut for the crack, but they did not put a cut in. I mentioned it before they poured it, but I was not clear enough, and I was just going to catch them after they poured it, but I was too late. 7. I lowered my garage door, and the concrete was not even with my door. I know that this is a lot, but I know what to look for. Overall, everything was pretty good, these are the negative things. But

I needed so concrete slabs removed from under a house I had removed and was having trouble finding someone in this small town to help me so I went to Angies list and saw

a message and told them what I had and where I was located. I told them the amount I was willing to pay and received a message back quickly saying they thought they could help me. They asked questions and I sent pictures of the project. They were willing to help me but then a local resident decided he had time so I hired them instead.

It's been some years since we used him, but just saw

on Angie's List. So while dated, just wanted to acknowledge what a great experience we had for two large jobs and that his work has held up well over the years. May not have need to use him again, but would highly recommend him.

W&C Asphalt encourages callers to contact them for service, but when you do (or in my case, when I called), they wouldn't dignify my multiple calls with a response.
