Need some advise concerning an asphalt driveway job that was done for me. I want to be fair with the contractor and be satisfied with the job. I thought going to the people in this forum would be a good idea to get some help in sorting this out. The Problem: New asphalt driveway put in and in front of the garage, aprox 875 sq feet, the contractor completely excavated the old black top and replaced it with new. Shortly after this was completed we noticed the surface sinking in were we parked in front of the door. This problem existed in the old driveway. That's one reason we wanted to put down new. The contractor was advised prior to accepting the job this problem existed and was a concern. They said no problem the new asphalt would not sink. To make a long story short, they came back, and patched the areas that sank. This looked horrible and we also had some standing water in the drive after rain. Contractor was called, came back out and agreed the job was unsatisfactory. Excavated again, replaced the black top a 2nd time. Same problem happened again. Sinking and standing water. This was a 4500.00 quote. I paid 3000.00 of the bill and included a letter stating the problems we still had. Received a letter from contractor today saying the only way to fix this was to pour a concrete pad in front of the driveway for an additional 2400.00. I feel the contractor has tried to fix the problem but it still exists. I feel a credit of the 875 sq feet should apply towards the concrete figure of 2400.00. Whats your thoughts out there on this situation?
