"Contractor did not complete job. Several items were left undone. All materials paid for were not installed. Sloppy job on many of the items. Did not come close to meeting expectations.

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.

They did an excellent job. Part of my driveway was crumbling and they came out and ran a pipe underground from my roof under the concrete to the run off. They cut the part out of the driveway that was crumbling and repaired it and reinforced it with steal piping. All my neighbors came to check it out and were very impressed. I gave them all the company information so they could use him as well. He took pride in his job and I am very very pleased.

He's probably the most competent grader around. He knows what he is doing. He's excellent. He's able to find out what my problem was, I had a drainage problem, and he knew exactly what to do. He had to schedule me because he's got work, but he stuck right to his schedule. He did the work in 3 or 4 days like he said he would. He's a laid back, relaxed, easy going guy but he's good. I've used him for other work too.

did such a wonderful job with his ideas. The ideas just came natural to him and he had just pulled them out of his head for the design was so wonderful and creative with them.
I was just lost for words when he just started suggesting ideas and what I could do with my project.
They had started the excavation with a machine, and at the same time the delivery truck had shown up with the pavers to my surprise. I had thought it would have taken longer than it did, from the start to finishing period.
They started the installation of pavers of the driveway the fallowing day of the excavation with the machine, at the same time they were installing the driveway they had men in the back doing the excavation by hand and by then started the sidewalk that

From my amazement, they had my dream driveway and patio done in three day's.
I could not of imagined such a beautiful job done by anyone like they had done. It had came out better than I had expected, and I can not thank them enough for the awesome job they did.

We contacted them in the fall, they told us they would schedule us as soon as possible. I wanted to get the house ready for my new tenants. However, they did forget to come out. I did end up contacting them, they apologized, and offered a 10% discount on the work. Overall, the job did go really well.

It was good. He has his own ideas and uses good materials. It's about 500 psi above what other contractors use and he puts rebar throughout. He makes sure his guys do good work. It really holds up really well. His prices are really reasonable and if you are having issues with an idea and won't know what works he can help you. He's done it so much he knows what works.

I met with
Yorkville Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
and told him that I wanted a curved walkway in my courtyard. He immediately understood what I wanted and needed and was able to give me a great price. His men showed up promptly and worked diligently a few weeks later when the weather stabilized enough to pour the walkway. I love the work! It is exactly what I wanted!
