    After loosing my operations manager job at a landscape construction and general contracting company last friday (july 8th) ive been out on my own trying to make a living. i bid on an driveway repair job ( a little too low) and had my girlfriend work with me ( she lost her job two months ago) . take a look and tell me what u think . ive attached a link to my webshots account because it was too much a pain in the but to post them on here. u can look through my other pictures if u feel so inclined

    Didn't even look at the repair job, had too much fun looking at Manhattan Summer 04.

    I am not a paving expert, but wonder how that thin layer on top the old stuff will hold up. Maybe that whole section should have been cut out ? Certainly looks better and as you said the seal coat should help smooth it. Were you planning on sealing the whole drive ? that would definitely make it look nice and maybe you could make up some money on the sealing part for bidding low. Did you rent the dump and roller ? Hope it works out for you, nothing like working for yourself, good luck !!

    yeah im planning on sealing the entire driveway. thats my truck i bought about a month ago. i rented a 1 ton roller for 100 dollars. yes its definetly a thin coat but i used an emulsifier so all said and done it should last 4-5 years.

    I don't do blacktop, but you do have a beautiful Newf. We have a 6 year old named Moses.
