"
was very responsive when I have contacted them, and impressively professional. Driveway sealcoating is not something I want to do myself," and they did a good job and went out of their way with customer service. I am very pleased with their work.

"They are outstanding. They are totally professional. They listen and offered suggestions for what would have also made sense (when we did the foundation). They" power washed the algae off the foundation after the completed the repairs. They managed to work around the fact that we share a driveway with the house next door. The other company we hired to do our snow plowing was not getting done fast enough so I hired them to help with that as well.

Post-winter woes: Should I repair or replace my crumbled and cracked driveway?

Experts say the freeze-thaw cycles, precipitation and snow melt products used in winter harm asphalt and concrete driveways.

Driveways

A homeowner's guide to the advantages and disadvantages of different types of driveway materials, including asphalt, concrete, paving stones and gravel.

Concrete driveways are frequently twice as expensive as asphalt driveways, but they can last up to 30 years without showing major wear. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Ernest C. of Chicago)

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 preformed their work and did what they were supposed to. They did warn us that the driveway would be a little slick for a short while. It has been months and it is still slick. I have fallen three times since November. In the area I live in, it is not the type of sealant you want to put down.

is investigating this company. Completely unethical company. Phone number is out of order. Screening their calls. They are liars. The contract was completely fraudulent.

I called and I spoke to a lady who was nice over the phone. She quoted me 350.00 over the phone. I wanted to meet with a rep and have them give me a few options to fill the cracks and seal the drive. I waited a week and called them and advised that I never got a written estimate. I had previously provided them my address. The lady apologised and said she would have someone call me to arrange the estimate. I waited another week and never a follow up call or estimate. Wasted my time twice trying to get their services.
I guess business is so good they don't need my money. That is good because they wont.
They are not responsible and lost a possible job at my place.
I would suggest that you look elsewhere.

did a magnificent job on our new driveway. The workers arrived both days on time, and were friendly and extremely hardworking. They even brought in our trash container for us. What a surprise! They really go the extra mile. The owner,

did everything we asked of him and more. The price of 120' long driveway that widens to a two car garage and was expanded 2' wide was very reasonable.

Very organized. Called to let us know when arriving. On time, cleaned driveway before application. Returned after service to check driveway and remove signage, stakes and no admit roping. Speedy work.

I am so please with JD Hunt Paving. The day I called to schedule an appointment for an estimate on the job, they came within the hour! They gave me two options and a great price on the work to be done. We shook hands, I sent in the paperwork that night, and the work was done 9 days later. Everything looks fantastic. They did a great job and cleaned up well afterwards. They even went the extra mile and repaired the asphalt around a nearby drain. WOW! I will be calling them in the future to keep all my asphalt areas sealed and maintained. I highly recommend them!

Everything went Ok. Even though I still don't use the driveway because of their recommendations due to the low temperatures during the last few days that prevent proper coat cure, I think that the job was well done and it will last a long time.

Initially it went well, but later dips developed in the driveway that we called Mr.
Constantia Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
about (covered by the work guarantee) and were assured by him they would come by to see it and fix it. More than 6 months later, no word or movement on that promise yet ! Also, we got an extra coating done on the driveway they recommended as it would last longer. So imagine our surprise when before that period elapsed, an employee from
Constantia Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
came up to our door and offered us the same service for a fee. I got the paperwork that listed the coating and mentioned it, but the employee said that by looking at our driveway it did not appear that was the coating which was put on. Very disconcerting,,,would appreciate the follow up customer service to be the same as the initial attention when company is trying to get your business.
