"I met
when he drove up and talked with me one afternoon while I was outside my house. I had been meaning to have the driveway sealed and just hadn't gotten" around to scheduling the work. Initially I confused
's company with a bigger company, but he straightened me out. I described what I wanted to do and
detailed how best his company could meet my needs. It was fairly late in the fall, but we had a warm 60+ day coming up and he said that he would be able to complete the work that day.
showed up and did an excellent job. When I got home the day he was completing the work he was busy putting the finishing touches on sealing our driveway. The driveway looks beautiful and the price was well within our budget. I will definitely use
the next time I need work done on my driveway.

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 a great job. They were quick, clean, and communicative when, due to all the rain we had, they had to delay the service a bit. Good people.

Missed some of the cracks that I thought they would seal. Owner came back and viewed the job and agreed to send the crew to seal more cracks. Offered $50 discount for inconvienence. Was very nice and agreed to come back in the spring to check the work to see if anything else needed to be done. I was slightly disappointed in the job, but my driveway was in really bad condition. So not the contractor's fault. He did a good job for what he had to work with. The lesson here is don't wait too long to fix cracks and seal your asphalt driveways.

We dealt with
Constantia Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he was great to work with. Friendly, professional and very knowledge about his field. Our house sits back about 185 feet from the road, and originally we thought we wanted a straight paved drive to our new home. After discussions with my wife, our builder &
Constantia Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
, we decided on horse shoe.
As I said,
Constantia Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
was great, but a little hard to reach at times due to how busy their commercial business is. We were flexible and after about three weeks he was able to squeeze us in. The crew arrived, reviewed the layout, discussed a strategy and got right to work. The grading required nearly half a day. The actual paving only took about 90 minutes. The transformation from gravel to paved was amazing. After four months it still looks great. I would highly recommend

and would definitely use them again.
PS - our horse shoe drive is the most popular driveway on our street. The UPS man uses it as a convenient turn around, even when he is not delivering to us.

the owner was very nice, pricing reasonable and seemed to understand what our expectations were. The initial portion of the job was done promptly and were initially very happy with the job/aesthetics. Within a few weeks the dirt/ground was already showing through and it looked like there was not enough stone put down. Then a couple of the Belgin blocks came loose. I contacted the owner and he said he would come by and take a look in a few days. This was early October. I have since called and left messages 3 more times stating that we would like him to contact us to resolve the loose belgin blocks and look at the bare spots.
There has been no response. Our expectations as homeowners is that we are hiring the 'experts' for a project as large as replacing a driveway, we feel our inexpertise has been taken advantage of : not enough gravel/rock was put down AND the cementing of the blocks was not done properly.
I would not recommend

I was extremely impressed by the level of customer service with Hatch. Great communication and very responsive. They absolutely stand behind their work 100%. They went above & beyond to make sure I was satisfied. I will use them again without hesitation when I am due for seal coating again. Great service, quality work, customer focused, and fair pricing!

Lazarovitch is a very personable young man in his 20s. He came to my front door unsolicited and pitched the work done to my driveway repair. We agreed that he would repair some damage to my driveway caused by tree roots pushing up asphalt by cutting out the cracked and bulging area of asphalt and replacing it with an asphalt patch. He would also coat the entire driveway and walkway with a coat of asphalt emulsion. He showed up on the day he said he would.

and his helper cut out the damaged asphalt in my driveway that had been pushed up and cracked by a tree root. They didn't show much enthusiasm for digging out and cutting the root that caused the damage. They pulled out some small roots, then I had to bring my
Constantia Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
in to dig deeper to find the larger tree root that caused the damage. They didn't bring enough asphalt with them to fill the hole so they had to return to their supply yard in Riverhead to get more. A couple hours later they returned but still didn't have enough hot patch to fill the hole. When they sprayed asphalt emulsion on the driveway and walkway I pointed out that they splattered emulsion on the wood base of my front porch (which I think should have been covered with carpenter's tape before applying emulsion). As they finished for the day
Constantia Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
's helper washed his hands with gasoline on my lawn leaving an area of dead grass. I let the patch cure for two days without driving on it. After driving on the patch a bit it was clear the patch still had a large depression in it and needed more hot patch asphalt. I called
Constantia Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
to ask him to bring more hot patch which he did one week later. His uncle or older brother was with him. I asked
Constantia Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
if they could bring a roller to flatten the asphalt like a road crew would do for a patch and he said they don't do that for small driveway jobs. I let the 2nd patch cure for two days without driving on it, but in the following week after driving on it for several days the patch still has a depression and needs more asphalt. I haven't called Lazarovitch back for a third visit.
