"I believe these guys put in a road, not a driveway. There were places where they didn't feel comfortable with the clay bedding so they kept digging, even down" 3' before they brought in their crushed concrete to
as foundation. I wanted the drive to work with the land and keep water flowing to low areas so it wouldn't sit by or on the drive. They did a great job at that as well as laying a really good driveway that I wonder if I will ever have to maintain. Nice crisp edges. Asked me many questions along the way that I maybe would not have thought of bringing up so that it came out just as I would want. 3 years or so and counting and hardly anything in the way of even
cracking. I heartily recommend them.

"A & B responded promptly to a message left for them, and showed up within two days, as promised, leaving a quote for a set of steps that we needed for a side" door. I called back after seeing the quote and asked several questions and said we had a custom design in mind.
, the owner, listened and asked intelligent questions and reduced the amount of the quote based on what we said we wanted. He said the work would get done within the week. It actually got done within three days - he called, said he could fit us in earlier and came by first to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted. The crew and
showed up promptly, worked fast and efficiently, created a great design for us, and did a beautiful job. His design suggestions resulted in a far more attractive and functional set of steps than what we'd come up with. Not only did they clean up after themselves, they cleaned up after me - taking care of an old set of steps for me at no extra cost. Everyone was professional, courteous, friendly and efficient. They're nice people and they do great work. The price was more than fair. I'd use A & B again in a heartbeat. They're just excellent.

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 very well. The man who was to measure the areas I wanted replaced was very nice, informative and punctual. He only took a few minutes of my time. I received an estimate quickly via email as agreed upon. I then called the office and the office manager wanted me to send the whole amount, however I told her that would not be good for me as a consumer so she agreed to 60% down.

They called me about a week and half later and asked if they could come the next day. The crew arrived before 8am and stayed until afer 5pm. They finished my neighbor's portion and about 3/4 of my job. They came back the next morning and finished up my job.

The crew was very pleasant. and patient. This is a professional organization. I would highly recommend using
