Last year, while the village was reconstructing our street, I hired the same contractor to replace our asphalt driveway with concrete.
Over the winter I noticed some chips in the concrete.
When the snow melted, I found that there are a lot of chips (20+) in various parts of the driveway.
The contractor gave me a 5 year warranty on the new driveway.
The contractor has told me, without looking at the driveway, that the chips are due to the wide temperature variations we had this winter ... and that they recommended that I have the driveway sealed (they didn't, but indicated in the contract that having it sealed was my responsibility).
I've got two questions ...
- Is this at all normal for a new driveway? I'm thinking not, but I have no experience in this area. I would like to get the contractor to fix it, but don't think I can make any arguments to convince them that it's not normal.
- Can the chips be repaired at all? If so, is it something I can do?
Thanks for any suggestions?
