"After emailing with the details of the job that I wanted performed they provided an estimate
and we set an appointment for the initial work," which consisted in ripping off the old driveway and setting the foundation.
, who was supervising the work was there for all the essential steps and he worked along the crew. The foundation, which consisted of rocks and dirt and looked like leftovers had to be left alone for several days to settle, but the driveway could still be used. After one week or so we set the appointment for the asphalt
, which was placed in a few hours. After a couple of days the driveway was ready for prime time. Not only that it looks great, but it's a pleasure to shovel the snow from it, being so smooth and nicely sloped. These guys are busy for a reason. Great job!

"We negotiated a price to seal my driveway and repair the existing berm. He told me they would be able to come in a couple of weeks. He called me an hour later and" said they would come the next morning. I told him I wouldn't be home and preferred to be home when they came. He said no problem they would do it in a couple of weeks. This was the last time I heard from him.

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.

It went fine. They came out and recommended me to do a $2,000 2 1/2 inch asphalt overlay. I had them do this. They suggested that because you can't seal an asphalt driveway year after year as I had. They said it would continue crack. They were quick, finished in 2 days. It works and is functional, although it seems a little softer than I expected.

Scheduling appointment was easy and fast.
Price quoted was better than competitors by about 2,000.
After work began, it was determined that additional fill would be required. That made the price more comparable w// other estimates.
It was well worth the price. Quality job. Owner was one site for major of the job and he was very accommodating.

We had overlooked a defect in our downspout drainage system which in turn was a contributing factor in our foundation fracturing and dropping. Before we could get the foundation fixed, we needed to find someone to correct the drainage problem.

was that person.
His bid was the lowest of three and the only one that offered the additional feature of a reasonable price to replace the asphalt portion or our driveway. He promised that he would do the work to our satisfaction and the price would not change, no matter what they ran into after starting excavation.
He predicted 2-3 days to complete the job. It was completed at noon on the third day.

the owner came to give us the estimate which had 2 different owners to coordinate. He gave us a fair price and did exactly what he said he would do and when he said he would do it. He paved over a base surface that had been done years before but he said it should be no problem, thus saving hundreds in unnecessary charges. He had 2 rocks to dig up that were causing bumps in the drveway and put on a nice topcoat.
