"It didn’t go very well. I called to make arrangements for Mr.
to come out, and he informed me that the deal wasn’t any good." He said there was no way he could do the 100 cubic feet for what I'd bought. He said there would be a very large surcharge of around $300 because it was a short load. I asked that he contact me if he is in the neighborhood but I've never heard from him.

"The quality of the driveway installed was poor.. Within 8 months of installation the subsurface sunk by 4 inches over a portion of driveway. The driveway lifted" up by the garage one and a half inches and along another area by one half inch. A 3/8 inch gap appeared where the expansion crack was placed. The contractor came out to review the situation and the comment was that it is expected. I walk up and down a new subdivision to look at driveways installed prior to ours and have yet to see such settling as we experienced. I currently have asked the builder to review this.

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.

After purchasing this deal, I phoned the service provider to discuss the work I needed complete. I spoke with
Chester Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
who quotes the cost for the work will be over $3500 more. I was very confused on the extra cost , due to the fine print did not state anything he was discussing, and the job had not been reviewed. He explained that there was going to be an extra fee for demolition, although the deal I purchased included demolition with the cost. I decided not to use this service provider for this deal due to the extra cost and the lack of honesty.

danillo is a very likeable guy that knows what he is doing
like many contractors he probably takes more jobs then he can handle and not very skilled with dealing with very tough city officials
getting the permit was stressful as lots of time passed between denials and re submitting
end result i must say was great!! once it was finaled i was very happy and i do recomend him assuming permit process is not difficult

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.
