"I was totally unhappy. When the work was done, it as fine. They never really told me when they were going to be here. I always had to call. When I asked about the process, the people" in the office didn't seem to know anything. I was disappointed with that. They finished it two weeks ago but they started in August. It took them that long. They were supposed to seal coat my driveway too for about $200 more. I do not want to go through that process again.

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.

Everything went well, and I was very pleased. Communicating with him was quick and easy, he showed on schedule, and the driveway turned out great. I actually plan on using his services again.

I called during the day and left a message on business answering machine;
Manchester Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
called me that evening, made an appointment to come out to my home within a week of the phone call. He came out on day and at time specified. Measured driveway, we discussed different types of re-construction, he gave me a price while he was there for two ways of doing the driveway. I told him I would discuss w/my husband and let him know.

I discussed w/husband, we chose which way to go, I called
Manchester Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
and let him know. He gave me an estimate of a week he would be available to do the driveway. He called me the week before and we agreed on a day. He and his crew were at my home bright and early in the day specified. My old driveway was totally dug out (it is a double wide driveway) and a new one created. It looks beautiful, and I have received many, many compliments from neighbors who are quite impressed with the finished product as well as the work that was done. Several neighbors, more knowledgeable then myself in the ways of building a driveway, noted that they observed the construction of the project and were more then impressed with the way it was done. "Quality all the way" one gentleman said to me. Because we have had a problem with water run off in the past on our old driveway,
Manchester Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
took some time to create the new driveway in such a manner as to make sure we wouldn't have "puddles" in various parts of the driveway. We have had a few heavy rains since the new driveway was completed, and he was true to his word. Our old driveway was in such bad shape that we had several itinerant contractors stop at our door and offer "a great price" to do the work in the months preceding the work on the new one. We are sooooo glad we didn't take them up on their offers. We have a quality driveway, which we paid a fair price for, which we expect to last for quite some time. I wish there were a way to post a photo of the finished product here so you could see it. It's beautiful. :-)

Prior to the job, they contacted Miss Utility and had all underground utilities marked. They obtained all necessary permits.
On the day of the job, the owner,

, showed up at 8:30 AM as promised with a crew of 7 men, all of which have been with the company at least 10 years. They had 2 large dump trucks, a grader, 2 mechanized rollers, an ashalt paving machine and numerous hand tools.
Manchester Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
greeted me, and told me what his crew would be doing. His crew carefully used hand tools to dig next to the existing concrete pad and remove the old gravel. They marked lines of the driveway, and then used a grader to smooth the existing gravel driveway. New stone was added and then everything was compacted with a roller. Where a side pullout existed that had not been graveled before, additional stone underlay was added and compacted. Once the driveway had been graded and marked, the trucks arrived with the hot asphalt, and skillfully laid. Two operators were on the asphalt paver, with 4 men on either side using hand tools to tamp and shape the sides. As they proceeded down the driveway, a 7th crew member used a roller to compact the freshly laid asphalt.
As they were

the end, several of the crew members used rakes to pull stone up to the sides of the asphalt to give a beautifully finished effect to the new driveway. They also swept and examined the entire job to ensure it was level.
The entire job took just under 5 ours from arrival to departure, and they did a beautiful job! My wife and I would highly recommend
