"We had half of the driveway resealed and the color difference was amazing. Two months later, areas of low traffic are still a darker black but the high traffic" areas are back to a greyish. Small wide cracks covered with a tar tape.

-keith B.

"We just had our driveway done by
- removal of old blacktop and new asphalt put on. It looks great! Dealing with them was a pleasure. "
was very professional - prompt, knowledgeable, and always willing to answer all of our questions regarding the process and care of our completed driveway. The crew was friendly and efficient and left the area looking clean and neat. The company takes obvious pride in doing a good job, and
made sure that we were satisfied with the completed project. We would definitely recommend them to others who are looking for a quality trustworthy company to do any of this type of work for them. We are very happy we chose them.

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.

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.

Asphalt Paving reviews in Waterford


H&B was extremely responsive. They came out and provided a quote within one day of calling them. They were great with keeping us informed since the day of the work was dependent on the weather. The work that they did was absolutely great. They were very neat. Our driveway looks fabulous.
- Catherine K.

Liam came as scheduled to look at our job. Our long and hilly driveway needs complete excavation and new installation. Liam seemed to have many good ideas and we liked the proposal yet we still needed some clarification about a couple of things upon further thought. We were planning to use this company because we did like the proposal, but Liam was unresponsive when we called to get those aforementioned questions answered. We also left a message with the receptionist to have

We are left in shock that this company has completely ignored us after we indicated we did want to use them...just needed to discuss some things before signing on the dotted line. It's a very expensive thing to undertake without feeling that all concerns, large and small, are addressed.

We hope our speculation as to why they have ignored us is unfounded.

Our old driveway was in bad shape.
Waterford Asphalt Driveway Contractors Provider Name Locked
stripped the old driveway and walkway, added crushed stone to fix the base and added two layers of asphalt.
Great quality of work, the people we dealt with (

) were very responsive and polite.
The driveway is still in good shape nine years later! Won't hesitate to call on them again if needed.

Rain forced us to postpone the project not once but twice. Each time the provider called in advance to say we'd have to reschedule. I appreciated their proactive approach and their care for my driveway. When the job was done, I couldn't have been more pleased. One crew took care of the hot rubber crack repairs and they did a fantastic job. Another crew did the

a few days later and their work on my 100 foot plus driveway was amazing. They were neat and I was happy to not find sealer all over the grass, plants and garage apron. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone and will definitely use them next time around.

Very well.

. They made it earlier calling up a day before if it's OK. Patches + double coat.

Service was delayed twice due to weather. Because of the delay, they took $50 off the cost. But when we finally were able to get it done, the service went quickly. They finished in about 2 hours, and it looks great. My only complaint is that the time between purchasing the service through Angie's list and actually getting it done was close to 2 months, but it is what it is.
- Michael D.

I contacted the provider via email. Someone called me 4 days later and said they would come do an estimate and leave it in my mailbox. 10 days later and I still have no estimate and no one responded to my email asking if they would be out. Not sure if the job is too small, but would have been nice to hear from someone.
- Sara F.

I have to say, they did an excellent job on my driveway. Now that my driveway has been through one of the most snowy winters on record, the coating is still in great condition. They also did a good job sealing all the cracks.
My only complaint was that they dropped some of the tar on one of the plants that killed it. I know mistakes happen and I am okay with it.
