"Hi Everyone,
did an excellent job in building a new driveway for me. He and his team were punctual.
came and gave me a fair estimate" and began the work as stated. I would recommend his company and actually have already recommended him to three people who need pavement work done. I told my friends and family about this project and word of mouth spreads. I would hire
and his team again for any pavement work that needs to be done. He is very knowledgeable. At the same time he was doing my driveway, he was actually working my parents neighbors driveway and they are just as happy as I am with the results. If you are looking for someone who is fair in pricing, honest with his words and knows what he is doing, then
is your company to work with. From my experience, I believe
to be an honest person. I highly recommend him. I rate him a A+ . Thanks!

"Very responsive and communicated well. Turned up on time and was very helpful. I would describe the the result as average. The
was as good as any other company" we have used. The edges of the drive were not as neat as with other companies. We had agreed that the cracks would not be perfect after they were filled however some of the cracks looked as if no filler had been used.

"Collegiate knows customer service. They arrived on time and did a great job. But it rained that evening and the new asphalt washed off and covered the driveway apron. And because our" street is on a hill, the asphalt also washed all along our front sidewalk. I called the next day, explained the issue, and two days later Collegiate power washed the apron and sidewalk. A few days after that, they resealed the driveway. They arrived on time and did a great job. Again. There was never any argument or push back. They just did the right thing in a professional manner.

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.


Asphalt Driveway reviews in Sycamore


The three men were cordial, they did what they came to do and that was that. Note worthy was their inside person,

as I recall, who was pleasant and very professional. Also, they were the low bidder of two (both included an Angie's list coupon).

Called them on a Wednesday afternoon and they were in my area so I got a quote that day.Turned out they had an opening in the schedule for Friday so I had the work done. They were very neat and work was done in a professional manner. I was a bit apprehensive as I could not be there for the work and I left a check in the mailbox for them, but no regrets and the work was first rate.
No drainage problems on the driveway and from what I could tell the materials they used were very good quality.
Time will tell, but so far I'm very pleased with the work.
- Robert H.

The team at Jellisons was prompt, informative, and cared about their work. It has been a few months (I don't remember the date) and we have not had any issues. They were very flexible as well. They were also competitively priced compared to other quotes, but we know a family that used them and they had very good luck so we went with them.
- Matt S.

The owner was not on site during the work; he only stopped by later for payment. I do have a small amount of water pooling on one section of the driveway.
- Frances S.

Great job. Arrived with 6 men and great looking equipment. Quick to finish, good cleanup and a beautiful job
- Michael B.

I called for a quote and heard back from them by day's end. After accepting the quote, someone called the very next day to schedule the service...within 2 weeks time. They driveway men came out on the scheduled day and did an excellent job == sealed all the cracks, removed the weeds, and coated the driveway. They did an excellent job! We received an invoice and had to pay it within a month. I will definitely be using this company again!!!!!
