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.

says he will do something, he does it promptly and excellently. He and his crew are experts at what they do, and he does all sorts of construction jobs, not just concrete work.

It took a while to get everything scheduled due to huge response to deal and the holidays. I have no previous experience with lawn care but I feel they did a good job, were very nice and removed the extra leaves at an additional expense. I was unable to get my regular lawn person to do the leaf removal so I was glad when they offered to do it.

This was the easiest and most successful home remodeling project we have done in years!

came early every day with his helper and worked steadily to get the job done. He kept us informed every step of the way, so that we were aware of what he was doing and what step came next. He gave us excellent advice about color and pattern. He also recommended some structural revisions that might help keep the cracks from reappearing, or new cracks from forming.

is a fine technician but also a real artist, with a good eye for color and design which was very important as there is a huge amount of concrete in the front of our house. We could have gone terribly wrong with the wrong color or pattern, but

listened when we explained what we liked and he made sure that the job turned out the way we wanted. The job, by its nature, was messy, but they cleaned up after themselves every day. Before we started, he told us how long this all would take, as we needed to obtain temporary street parking permits from the city, and he was done on the day he said he would be done.

When he came out for the evaluation, he took all of the information down. He later followed up with the quote for the job. His price was in line with other companies. I went ahead and hired him for the job of the concrete driveway and it was great! The work took about two days and the clean-up was excellent. Overall, we are satisfied with the work.

did an excellent job seal coating our driveway. Very professional and neat work. He had given us a quote the year prior as other seal coating companies were in our neighborhood and doing very quick work and even seal coating driveways that were too new to be seal coated.

instructed us to wait until the next summer before having the seal coat done. He is a very honest person and provided us with very helpful information.

is your man. He was very prompt returning my phone call. He provided a very detailed proposal that outlined all the work to be done. He did not hesitate when I asked him to add a few line items to his proposal to clarify all tasks.

was very open to negotiating his price. The day the work was to start his crew was at the house ready to go at the appointed time. In fact, the crew started on time each of the 3 days work was done. Everyone was professional and courteous. The job was completed in the time specified in the contract. Ryens crew went out of their way to ensure the driveway was sloped so that the water runs away from the house and garage. The job site was thoroughly cleaned up after the job was done.
