"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.

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.

is on top of the job the whole way. He communicates with you and lets you know what the workers will be doing next. The whole crew is very professional, well mannered and friendly. They did a great job pouring the new driveway and sidewalk and would recommend them to anyone who wants to avoid the hassle of dealing with unreliable people and would like beautiful concrete work.

We hired

Contractors six years ago to replace our driveway, walk ways, patio, apron and garage floor which was reviewed on May 4, 2009. Our review was all “A”s and six years later we are still giving

all “A”s. While working on another driveway on our street Mr. Difini came over to our house and was concerned about the way the drive was chipping around the drain in the driveway. He suggested ways it could be fixed and we decided that it should be replaced and since they were working
at house nearby, it would be easy to do. A couple of days later they cut out the affected area around the drain (about thirty-two inches square) and replaced the concrete. I expected to have a bill for the work the next day and when there was no bill, I spoke with Mr. Difini and he said there was no charge and that “it should never have broken up that way”. We were very surprised and
very pleased. We think it is quite rare to find someone who takes that much pride in his work. He told us that it was no big thing but we felt it was a very big thing. We continue to rate

We were away on vacation at the time that it was resurfaced, and were pleasantly surprised upon our return of how well the road looked and was maintained. They gave us a quote and there were no surprises. They did a great job and I would highly recommend them.

FYI, if you purchase the deal without calling first, you should know hey are closed for the next several weeks, so you may need to wait months for the job to be started/completed.
