driveway problem - laying the entire driveway again..UNHAPPY

Postby samharris » Wed Jun 18, 2014 6:52 pm

Long story short....laid my driveway (~900 sq. ft) last year this time. i had some MAJOR spalling on the driveway....after 6 months of arguing with the contractor, he agreed to redo the whole work. He literally JUST left my house having finished the driveway (minus the apron) and i'm NOT happy. I think he was unprepared and understaffed (5 people total), or didn't know what the hell he was doing. the driveway is not smooth...has small bumps and valleys....and overall looks tacky!
The concrete was getting hard faster than he could finish....i think.

take a look at this video from about an hour ago....they're "finishing it up". is this normal???????

I have seen the video you posted. It does seem like your contractor needs more manpower to help lay down your concrete driveway, and the concrete drying up fast that they need to apply water on it. I hope your driveway provides you a good driving condition.
